Can’t Hardly Wait

The ’90s are back in a big way.

Fashion repeats itself, and we’ve all watched as decades past paraded back into our lives (bellbottoms, anyone?). ’80s neons recently returned with a vengeance, and now it seems that the ’90s are back and much, much better than before.

Crop tops and mirrored sunnies played an important role in this summer’s street style, and will no doubt strut into next summer as well. For fall we’ll see no shortage of dark lips, tartan prints and platforms. And thanks to Dannijo, we have the rebirth of the choker to look forward to. As long as those butterfly clips stay in the past, this is one sartorial decade that I’m happy to say hello (again) to.

Seeing in Color

blue-sunnies4My favorite summer accessories, hands down, are sunglasses. And while the rest of the fashion world may be putting on their plaid and pulling up their boots in preparation for fall, I’m enjoying the start of San Francisco’s Indian summer. Meaning it’s the perfect time to talk about my favorite new eyewear.

I’ve had my eye on a bright blue version of these Madewell Hepcat Shades for quite some time, so when I stumbled across these practically identical Forever 21 sunnies for all of $6, I almost bought them in all three colors. Retro frame? Check. Reflective lenses? Check. Perfect powder blue hue? Check!

It turns out that I’ve been so subconsciously drawn to this fresh color that almost everything I’ve recently purchased seems to match my new sunglasses. I love wearing them with this ladylike Lush frock, and they also look great poolside when worn with my—you guessed it—blue and white bikini. Plus they look really cute on my pup!blue-sunniesblue-sunnies7blue-sunnies2blue-sunnies6blue-sunnies5

Put a Beau on It!

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of taking this pretty new Kate Spade Beau bag out for a spin at a party hosted by Kate Spade and San Francisco Magazine.pinkdeck7beaupartyA couple glasses of pink champagne later, my friend Sarah and I were having a grand old time trying things on and treating ourselves to some fun new items. Afterward, we headed up to her roof just in time to snap a few photos before the light left for the night. The Golden Gate Bridge makes for a pretty great backdrop, don’t you think?pinkdeck2pinkdeck5pinkdeck3Shirt: Forever 21, Skirt: Frenchi – also seen here, Bag: Kate Spade
