The New Warby Parker Specs

I’m all about the little touches that add extra flair or statement to an outfit. And when it comes to my glasses, which I typically don’t wear, I haven’t been very excited- probably why I never wear them. I have always purchased the typical black frame, structured and square shaped. But now that I am officially adulting, I realized I haven’t gotten a new prescription or glasses in quite awhile.

I’ve been hearing some great things about Warby Parker- stylish frames at an affordable price that you get to try-on at home for free. What did I have to lose?

Embrace the cape!

With the winter chill arriving in Minnesota quicker than I hoped, I needed a new way to stay warm and fashionable. I love my down feather Calvin Klein coat, however, it becomes quite monotonous when worn every single day. I wanted to switch it up occasionally- try a new trend other than a long black coat.

I have already seen several women on the street flaunting their flowing capes (or as some might call a poncho). Could this new fad be the piece of clothing to break up my chilly day boredom?

More clothes = more exercise?

I worked hard this summer- spent long hours at the office, ate a [strict] healthy diet, and exercised on occasion. Mostly it was my energetic lifestyle and the long summer hours that kept me in check.

Now the days have shortened, the hours in the office have decreased (only slightly), and I’m craving comfort food as the weather chills. I have a wedding lurking in the near future that I need to stay toned and healthy for. Plus, I can’t afford to pay for dress alterations, as it fit perfectly several weeks ago.

What is a girl to do? Buy more athletic clothes of course!

Never Stop Adding to the Shoe Collection

Every woman has heard it- high heels are nothing but trouble. Deformed feet, back pain, and shortened calve muscles to name a few problems instigated by them.

But, as a 20-something woman I would gladly choose a day of aching feet and lower back pain to wear the beautiful stilettos and wedges gracing my closet. There is a sense of allure and excitement felt when you slip on pair of sky-high heels, ready to face the world.

Where’s my denim dress?

There has been one piece of clothing I’ve been dying to add to my closet; a light-medium wash, 3/4 sleeve denim dress. I have a particular design in my head and a small budget to support it.

The denim dress is a HOT trend right now. Not to mention, it’s versatile and easy, making the perfect addition to my wardrobe. This piece of clothing can be worn relaxed with flats and a scarf to brunch, then dressed up with heels and a sequined clutch to the bar in the evening.

So, here is what my countless hours of online searching have produced:

More studded shoes finding their way into my closet

I must admit two things about myself…

  1. I cannot pass up a good deal
  2. I am a shoe addict

Because of these character traits I acquired two more beautiful studded pairs of shoes for my ever-growing closet.

Mom, if you are reading this, before you roll your eyes at my money spending habits, the shoes were only $15 each! Thank you Charlotte Russe for the amazing sale prices that I stumble upon at dreadfully late hours of the night.
