Daily Covet: Collection of Sunnies

As mentioned in many previous posts, I love sunglasses!

Not just because my poor sensitive eyes have to wear them rain or shine, but because I love how they can show off a totally different you just by changing them up.

I tend to get attached to one certain pair, but I love the thought of matching my sunglasses to my outfit – just as I would with my shoes.

So what eyewear would I like to add to my collection?

Here’s a roundup of some of my absolute favorite styles…

Daily Covet: Chloe Drew Calf Hair Shoulder Bag

I’ve always been a fan of CHLOÉ handbags (who isn’t?) but have only had the pleasure of admiring them from afar. In this case, I’m getting up close and personal – but only virtually.

The truth is, anything in leopard-print calf hair goes straight to the top of my “If I only had this” list!

And this little CHLOÉ bag with a big price tag is there… maybe twice, I love it so much!

From cargo pants to a little black dress, this could be one of the most versatile bags around. At that price, it’d better be!

Daily Covet: Chloé vs. Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.

I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.

This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.

This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!

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 bikini in my dreams…

It’s not bloody likely that I will ever wear a white bikini.  It’s a good day when I will put on one at all – which is to say when my children are the only ones at the pool to see me in it.

But if I were to regularly wear a bikini.  And if it did happen to be white.  I would be wearing this Chloé one with the gold scalloped trim!

If Chloé makes one more thing that I adore and can’t afford, I will JUST die!  Luckily, for life’s sake, a white bikini is probably never in my future.  So I will live another day.

But isn’t it cute?!

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?!

Neighborhood Christmas Progressive

So, you made it through your Friday afternoon pre-holiday office bash and you may still be nursing yourself through Saturday afternoon.  But come Sunday afternoon, your neighbors are doing their annual holiday progressive to eat, drink and be merry. (If you’re anything like me – to show off how much time and effort, you’ve put into your Christmas décor!)

You’ll need something casually cute.  And most likely some slip on-and-off footwear, if you live in the colder (read sloppier) climate like me.  And your cape will be just as easy to throw on and off – or to just leave on!
