Why Did You Wear That: Coach at LensCrafters

kirsten smith lenscrafters coachYou know one thing that I love to do is read.  As a little girl the library and the book store were two of my favorite places to get lost in.  Yes, I was that kid who was excited for library class.  Dewey decimal system, what?  Well, as I got older, I found that I had an astigmatism and was going to need to wear glasses.  I tried wearing contacts, but the thought of touching my eyeballs freaked me out, so fantastic frames it was!

kirsten smith glassesOver the past couple of years, the stigma of eyeglasses has gone right out the window.  As a matter of fact, glasses have become downright trendy.  Non vision impaired ladies have started sporting eyewear and even celebrities have been seen walking the red carpet in their glasses.  Perhaps it’s due to designers creating styles that are not only comfortable, but totally chic.  Enter Coach at LensCrafters.  Talk about a perfect pairing!  Now you can get the best in eye care along with the best in fashion.  I love the look of the Cecilia frames in tortoise.  The slight cat eye shape gives just the right amount of retro feel for my reading and the pop of green inside makes them anything but boring.

Who says men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses?

Setting the Mood: Mint Condition
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

mint inspiration boardTangerine tango not your thing?  That’s fine.  There’s another shade that is sure to make this spring just as refreshing.  Try a little bit of mint to put a spring in your step. It looks great in a head to toe look or something just as simple as freshly painted phalanges.  The color is equally as flattering on all skin tones, so don’t be afraid to experiment with this spearminty shade of green.

Fun fact: mint chocolate chip ice cream ranks as my #1 all time favorite ice cream. That in and of itself should be enough to get you on board with mint this spring.

Why Did You Wear That: For the Birds

striped dress bird bathEveryday around the same time, a flock of birds shows up at this little bird bath.  I’m not talking like one or two.  I am talking about ten to twenty at a time.  It’s like birds gone wild at spring beak (too many fowl puns?).  Something about this little bird bath seemed very French to me.  I’m not sure why.  Do they even have birds (les oiseaux) in France?  Doesn’t matter.  It seemed like a perfect place to put on one of my favorite knit dresses with wedge booties and beret and channel my inner French girl.  While it’s been abnormally warm, the air does start to chill when the sun goes down.  That’s why it’s imperative to always have a jacket and scarf on hand.  Cherry nails and lips are the perfect accents for an all black and white ensemble.

Setting the Mood: Pastel Me, Please.
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

pastel inspiration

Second to the clean crisp contrast of black and white, pastels are my favorite shades in the rainbow.  I think it’s because they remind me of the sky right before sunset (you know, when the sky looks like a big bowl of sherbet).  There’s nothing I love more than a good sunset… well, almost nothing.  And just like clockwork, pastels are making a huge comeback for spring.  From soft mint, to sweet lavender and blushy pinks, all the colors of the evening sky are showing up on everything from denim to handbags.  I love the look of monochromatic head to toe pastels, but if you want to add just a touch to your look, try incorporating accessories or just simply nail polish to remain on trend without feeling like an easter egg.

Why Did You Wear That: Drab to Fab
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

Believe it or not some people don’t like to wear sequin covered disco ball-esque dresses.  I know.  I could hardly wrap my head around it either.  I’m somewhat of a magpie and I will use any and all excuses to deck myself, my home, my dog out in anything shiny.  Whether it be a shimmering chandelier or sparkly mini, I’m on it.  However, in the off chance that you don’t love a sparkly get up as much as me (or the rest of the world), there are some other options to bring a little bling to your standard LBD.  It can be as subtle as a glittery manicure or as bold as bejeweled headband.  Adding just a hint of shine will take you from wet blanket to woohoo!

1.  Eugenia Kim Serena Headband, $74.99, 2. Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow, $22, 3. Black Halo Donna Halter Mini Dress, $330, 4. Fragments for Neiman Marcus Multi Crystal Bracelet, $275, 5. J. Crew Classic Pave Link Bracelet, $118, 6. Essie Nail Polish (Set in Stones), $8, 7. Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Polish (Boom Boom Pow), $20, 8. Jimmy Choo Glitter Cap Toe Ballerina Flats, $345, 9. J. Crew Darby Glitter Loafers, $175, 10. Loeffler Randall Zuri Pumps, $359.99, 11. B Brian Atwood Liese Metallic Peep Toe Ankle Boots, $350, 12.  Kenneth Jay Lane Large Crystal Ring, $88, 13. Kate Spade All Wrapped Up Pave Ring, $148, 14. See by Chloe Cherry Feather Mini Cross Body Bag, $495, 15. Top Shop Gold Sequin Animal Cross Body Bag, $50, 16.  Erickson Beamon Smoke and Mirrors Earrings, $315, 17. Oscar de la Renta Beaded Tassel Earrings, $440

And because I must:  I do not condone wearing more than… let’s see three of these items at once.  Let’s have fun without shooting anyone’s eye out.
