embellished details

I am currently addicted to and coveting everything with some embellished detail. This season we are seeing more glitter and glamor, adding a sense of spontaneity to what can sometimes be seen as a modest, simple style. For the highest impact, I suggest to use it sparingly and on unexpected pieces for the ultimate effortless look. 
The pieces I curated below all have the idea of balanced embellishment, they aren't over the top flashy yet are pivotal to adding a statement. 


In my opinion a statement clutch - like below - is a perfect accessory for the summer. Not only a great piece for evening, but beautiful with a pair of jeans and simple tee. 

I've been loving the embellished cuff bracelet for a few months now. In the winter months I was wearing them over my sweater but I'm looking forward to showing them off with my Spring/Summer pieces. 
Lastly, the brooch. I've never felt that this is an 'old lady' accessory, quite the contrary actually. It's all about how you style and piece it together. I like to cluster several brooches together on my denim jacket or the lapel of a summer blazer (more on that soon), clip them on a knotted scarf (not at the neck, lower on the chest) and wear them in my hair as a hair pin. 
These delicate embellished details will take your look from basic to striking! 


I hope you are having a wonderful week. 

Thanks for visiting today.

Lisbon, Portugal


I was fortunate to join my dad on a work conference in Lisbon, Portugal last week. I had the most incredible time - exploring a new city, meeting some fantastic people (including keynote speaker Regis Philbin) and devouring some of the best pastries, Portuguese pasteis de belem (I'm such a sucker for anything with cream and/or custard). 
I had a chance to explore the city and discover some of it's incredible architecture, which I am sharing a little with you here. The Portuguese people are so hospitable, kind and friendly - what else could you ask for. And being a seafood lover, they make some of the best codfish. 

The weather was beautiful and I was finally able to bring out my Spring pieces. I'm still into the peplum and all about distressed denim this season. The Rayban flash lens aviators add edge and style - definitely my favorite statement accessory this season! 

Thank you for visiting. 
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Ray-ban flash lens aviators with Sun Optics


I've always been a fan of the aviator and this season I especially fell for the Ray Ban flash lens collection.
I teamed up with Sun Optics to shoot the entire collection of aviators and some of my favorite Clubmasters - more on that later this week.

What I love about the aviator is the curved shape. It's perfect for longer faces since it adds width, but also great if you have large or delicate features. The key to sunglasses is proportion. If you have large features, go with an oversized pair. For delicate features, try something a little smaller and everyone else, go for mid-size. The style is timeless so you are bound to wear them for years!

More of my collaboration coming over the next couple weeks.

Thanks for visiting today.
