Daily Covet: Trina Turk for Banana Republic swirl tunic dress

A Trina Turk tunic dress.  That just says summer, oversized sunnies and maybe even lunch in L.A. to me.

And since orange and pink is one of my most favorite color combinations (Don’t believe me? See here!), this tunic dress immediately caught my eye.

Shopping, lunching, not wanting to wear your little black sweats the 5th day in a row… just sayin’… this tunic dress has it all!  And it has a lightweight, cotton construction for comfort with a silk blend that will dress it up a smidge.

Daily Covet: Chloé Ornate Aviator Frames

Yesterday, it was over 70 degrees here in middle America.  I actually used sunscreen on my face, and those of my kiddos, as well.  I wore my sunglasses for bright sun, instead of for dreary gray. (It makes my eyes water almost more than sun does!)

But today, the temperature – a balmy 61 when I got up at 8 a.m. – is now 48.  Winds and gray skies are ever present, and I’m feeling the need for another pair of sunglasses, without the heavy, tortoise frames and super black lenses.

These Chloé Aviator frames are so cool with their subtle, purple-hued lenses – perfect for blocking out the UV that bugs my eyes, not the sun.  They also have unique and trés cool, lightweight frames perfect for a day like today.

Can I justify another pair of expensive sunglasses.   Silly question, right?!

Mad Men Countdown – 22 days

What’s better than tall, dark and handsome?  Right.  Tall, dark, handsome and in aviator shades.

I love, love, love guys in Aviators, and Don Draper’s military-issued Randolph Engineering aviator shades are PRI-TEE sexy, as far as I’m concerned.  Oh, and one more thing – you can have a pair with custom frames and lenses in your choice of colors and finishes for as little as $109. Yep, less than our favorite Ray Ban “Cockpit” Aviators….
