With the first day of summer just weeks away, I’ve teamed up with Sunglass Hut to bring you three of my favorite looks with three of my favorite pairs of sunglasses! Ray Ban wayfarers have always been a staple in my eyewear and I love switching it up for summer and adding a colored pair. While the turquoise pulls out the blue hues in my shorts, I’m looking forward to wearing them with an all white ensemble this summer as well. These will definitely be my beach shades for summer!

Cat eye sunglasses are timeless and classic, so an all black, white and neutral look seems appropriate for this Miu Miu pair. They’re ladylike and bold, so I paired them with more androgynous and tailored pieces to balance it out.

My new favorite style of sunglasses are ones with reflective lenses. I have the classic Ray Ban aviators, but the clubmaster style adds a fun retro element to any look. I’ve been wearing this pair with everything and love how the colored lenses pull out the different shades of color in whatever you’re wearing.

Look 1: Ray Ban Sunglasses, Zara Top, ASOS Shorts, Joie Sandals, Balenciaga Bag

Look 2: Miu Miu Sunglasses, Burberry Trench, J Brand Top, kate spade ny shorts c/0, Mulberry Heels, Mulberry Bag, Lulu Frost Brooch

Look 3: Ray Ban Sunglasses, Sea NY Dress, Lilly Pulitzer Scarf c/o, Tory Burch Bag c/o, Banana Republic Heels

Printed Playsuit

Another day, another romper. Like maxi dress, I love that they’re so simple and an easy one-piece look. This tropical printed one from Zara is so flattering on and I love the open back- perfect for those extra warm days!

As I’m slowly adding heels back into a few looks, I find that wedges are a lot more comfortable since your weight is more evenly distributed. How cute are these red Sole Society woven ones? They’re a great pop of color for summer- especially if you buy mainly neutral colored shoes like I do- and wedges make it easier to be outside on grass as well. You can shop a few more of my favorite wedges from Sole Society here…

The Fruit Stand

On the weekends, my husband and I love to head to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh fruit and veggies for the week ahead. We didn’t get a chance to go together this passed weekend since he was out of town, but while we were driving out to Napa on Monday we spotted this adorable fruit stand with the most delicious assortment of fresh fruits that we picked up for a snack along the way.

I’d been trying to get my hands on a pair of these Chanel espadrilles for forever, so I was ecstatic when the Neimans in SF got a brand new shipment in. They’re so unbelievably comfy and perfect for everyday. This Steven by Steve Madden pair are very similar and under $100.

This chambray Joie skirt a must-have! It’s a great piece you can wear so many different ways and dress up for work or down for the weekends. I paired it with a crisp white button down for a simple, relaxed look.
