Shopping for Wardrobe Essentials

If there are two things I’m always shopping for it’s tops and jackets. While a basic black blazer is always great to have, they often wear out easily from overuse and aren’t always great for spring and summer looks. As for tops, my shirts tend to wear out way before my jeans do so I’m always on the lookout for casual chic tops.

I recently discovered Lyst, a London-based fashion site where you can shop thousands of designers in one place. It’s super easy to use so if I’m not careful I could stay on Lyst for hours. With summer coming into full swing, I’m finding that I’m low on tanks and tees so I’ve been surfing my favorite sites looking to build up my summertime wardrobe.

For those dressier days and cooler nights, I’ve also been on the lookout for new jackets and blazers. I’m still amazed how the right blazer can dress up any outfit. Since you should always diversify your wardrobe like you diversify your portfolio, you can never have enough colors.

Guest Post: 5 Quick Tips to Finding the Best Sunglasses to Suit Your Personality


Burberry Sunglasses | Nike Sunglasses | Prada Sunglasses

Shopping for sunglasses can be tough. Not everything you like will look good on your face, and you’re going to initially dislike some of the styles that look best on you. But, it’s not all about looks, it’s also about personality. There are sunglasses for each temperament; you just have to find the right ones! Just answer these five questions prior to going sunglasses shopping and you’ll be home with your new babies in no time.

1. Do you want attention? If the answer is yes, then opt for oversized frames and indulge in embellishments of all sorts. Go for the funky, colorful frames. If the answer is no, decide on the classics with small frames that fit your face in neutral colors.

2. Are you active? If you’re into sports and being outdoors, go for sports sunglasses. They have high protection lenses and will keep your eyes safe and sound. If you’re not that active, you can go for fashion sunglasses which offer UV protection, but are also stylish.

3. Do you want to be a trendsetter? If you’re a follower, you’ll go for bling and/or mirror lenses. If you want to set the trend, look for unique sunglasses at thrift shops, vintage fairs, or on Etsy. Click here for more trendsetting styles.

4. Are you in charge? If you want to show your authority, wear aviator sunglasses. They’re often associated with power, since they were initially worn by policemen. If you are submissive, go for a classic Wayfarer style that is square and easy to wear.

5. Are you a romantic? If you’re nostalgic over decades you haven’t even lived in, select classic Hollywood styles of oversized, oval sunglasses or cat eyes. If you’re a realistic modern girl, go for the round sunglasses with a keyhole brow or steampunk frames.
