feeling shady

while it may be monday, which means my next pool day is 5 (!!!) whole days away, these chic peas are making a serious case for investing in a pair of white sunnies to accompany me next weekend. white is glam, retro, guaranteed to show off a tan and the perfect way to take your summer look up a notch….

my favorite options for nailing this look? a retro Raen pair (identical to picture 2 and 4), a tortoise shell version by my girl OP, a bargain pricedĀ club master pair, thisĀ mod round pair by my favorite new orleans brand Krewe, top shop’s cateye style and this white and gold pair by Dior.

in anticipation of my upcoming trip to santorini in 8 weeks (yay! more on this subject to come) my mind is preoccupied with all things blue and white. first, a little inspiration— isn’t OP the epitome of a greek isle goddess in this pic?!

for dinners dining under the stars, a funky printed peter pilotto shift (very erica pelosini approved)

worn with a rustic pair of lace up sandals (worn by fellow blogger Stefanie here)—bonus, these look way more expensive than their whopping $24 price tag— but like any good bargain, they’re selling out fast, order a pair soon!Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 5.40.05 PM

top off your toes with a fresh neutral pedi
