Throwing 1960s Shade

It’s officially Summer and with summer comes the cute maxi dresses and sassy sandals but here in Texas there is one thing that’s a summer MUST! SHADES!  Warby Parker has some beautiful sunglasses that are 1960s vintage with a modern twist created by a college student. With 49 locations in the United States and 2 locations in Ontario, Canada you can’t be caught with sunglasses that are out of style.

When I first seen this 2017 Summer collection I immediately thought of a 1960s pin-up girl. This collection screams 1960s with the unique shapes and bright colors which is perfect for summer outfits!

Here are my 3 favorite pairs with my outfit recommendations!


F_SU17_12_EMAIL_SUN_Laurel_Clementine_013_OA_COMPF_SU17_15_PROMO_Sun_Clementine_Espresso-Tortoise_006_OA_COMPWith these Espresso Tortoise Clementine shades I see bright red lipstick and a cute simple outfit! When I say simple I mean black and white simple. I even see these shades paired with a simple black summer dress. These shades speak for themselves when they say, “I’m here and in the flesh throwing shade!”

I also see these two pairs of sunglasses going great with a vintage outfit! If you are a pro at using the scarf for vintage hairstyles then you should definitely consider purchasing these glasses to complete your outfit.




These Oak colored Stanton shades can be perfectly paired with a bright yellow or pink top with the bottoms of your choice to create a casual summer outfit. They have a rustic vintage feel that you don’t see in sunglasses but this pair is perfect for this collection.



Now this pair of Jet Black Piper sunglasses with Rose Gold lenses is a MUST & it can go with practically anything! I see these sunglasses being paired with a bright vibrant maxi dress to balance the darkness. They create a mysterious persona about is dark yet sexy!

Best Gift List Apps

With the holidays quickly approaching some of us, myself included, are behind on gift shopping! Some of us don’t know what we are buying or we don’t know what our budget is exactly BUT I am here to tell you that that is all over! With the help of technology and a thing called APPS there is a solution to determining what you are buying this holiday season.

Here are my 2 favorite gift listing apps that helped me this holiday season…


  1. Santa’s Bag

Santa’s Bag is an organized app that allows you to not only create a budget for ALL of the gifts you plan on purchasing but it allows you to budget per person, list the gift(s) you plan on purchasing for  for each person, what store you can purchase the gift from, and how much you have left within you budget!

This app is an organizers dream app! Santa’s bag is the perfect visual for those who love to make lists, such as grocery lists, to prevent forgetting about someone such as that co-worker who is always eyeballing you for no good reason. I highly recommend this app for gift planning and shopping for all of the above reasons and then some!

2. Holiday Planner Lite

Now this app goes above and beyond budget planning! If you are someone who travels during the holiday season then this app is most definitely for you!

The Holiday Planner Lite app allows you to create a budget for gift giving but it is great for budgeting your travels down to the cost of the flight, hotel, food, and activities. You can keep track of how much you spend in each category (i.e transportation) and how much you have left.

I recommend this app for those who are big on traveling. I know for a fact that going over budget while traveling is common because we often don’t set a budget for when we are going on vacation especially during the holidays.


With these two apps you can budget your entire holiday without going over budget or going overboard! There’s apps give you a clear expectation on what you will be spending this holiday season. So if you haven’t already, go to your app store and download one or both of the apps listed about and get budgeting for the holidays!
