Black and White CHANEL Sunnies
Sunglasses are the quintessential summer accessory. The perfect pair will go with every outfit you own, last through several seasons and frame your face masterfully. This classic Chanel style is my current obsession because they look so damn chic. It’s impossible not to feel incredibly fabulous while wearing anything Chanel but the black frames with white CC’s give a vintage glamour vibe without being too trendy. I like to wear them with less “breakfast at Tiffany’s” pieces… something a bit edgier like a black faux leather jacket or distressed denim to keep it fun and interesting.
Day to Night Gold Clutch
My ride or die staple is the gold leather envelope clutch from J.Crew. It goes with just about everything and is large enough to carry my phone, makeup, wallet etc. easily without looking or feeling over stuffed. The strap is heavy metal, not some cheap flimsy chain that could snap at any moment. Since it’s a pale gold, it works really well for brunching or cocktails. I bring this bag on every trip. It’s flat so it packs easily without taking up any room in my suitcase. I bought it a while ago but you can still find similar styles.
J. Crew Costume Jewelry
When it comes to clothing I rarely shop at J. Crew but when it comes to costume jewelry I find it hard to control myself. The outlets in particular have impressive pieces at a fraction of the cost. They usually run sales several times a year where they offer an additional percentage off and the best part is you can shop these deals online. Almost every piece of costume jewelry I own is from a J. Crew outlet. During a recent trip I picked up the earrings and necklace pictured above, all of which cost less than twenty bucks!
