While I’m not always the best at keeping up with every fashion trend each season, I do generally find one or two that I fall in love with. This summer, that trend is definitely the pom-pom/tassel trend. I swear, I’ve seen it everywhere lately! I like the laidback and almost whimsical vibe it gives off – even when I’m smack-dab in the center of the city, I feel like I’m about to go on some tropical vacation.
Another side effect of summer is that I officially abandon the vampirically dark lipsticks I go for in the winter in favor of extremely bright ones. I have a thing for statement lipstick, so regardless of whether that’s bright or dark, I just love anything that stands out.
I also finally mustered up the courage to purchase a pair of sunnies that aren’t traditional Ray-Ban Wayfarer-style frames (I like how I make this sound like it was some monumental act of bravery when in reality it was an impulse purchase at the checkout line of J.Crew). While I still adore my Wayfarers, I’m sort of obsessed with these. They’ve got a unique shape, a bright color, and are almost obnoxiously reflective – everything I could have asked for in a pair of tradition-breaking sunglasses.
