Must-have Monday: Knits

Between the snow, ice, and wind chill factor, the cold winter is back with a vengeance this year. If you’re like me and don’t mind the drastic dip in temperature, then you know inclement weather is something you kind of just make the best of. My fix this season? Rachel’s Knit Knacks. She’s made all kinds of awesome to keep the warmth cute.

I love that Rachel makes these by hand and offers all her styles in custom colors. Love so much I bought a turban myself. That’s me with Gale from Nuda!

Must-Have Monday: Leather Bow Bracelet

Leather Bow BraceletLeather Bow BraceletLeather Bow BraceletLeather Bow Bracelet designer Carolina Benoit recently dropped her line of leather bow bracelets and we couldn’t be more in love! Available in an array of colors, we can’t decide which (or how many) to buy. My eye has been on the blue. But then black is classic and classy. I also heart the way it’s styled in aqua. The more the merrier, right?


Must-Have Monday: Carolina Benoit Rope Blouse

With summer around the corner, stocking up early on easy, breezy staples in crisp white is a must. Nothing is more effortlessly elegant than classic white on sunny days. This week’s favorite is Carolina Benoit’s Rope Blouse. It can be tied two different ways to either get a higher or lower neckline or even layered on top of another piece. I personally love a good plunging v-neck with some high-waisted shorts/jeans.

Must-Have Monday: Cat Eye Sunglasses

There’s nothing like a good pair of tortoise shell cat eye sunnies. Paired with something bold like a fiery red lip or a simple all black outfit to add a little oomph, you can’t go wrong. You just can’t.

Cat Eye Sunglasses

Our must-have pick is of the vintage variety from our one and only Hello Again Vintage. It’s a throwback tortoise rendition of just the right amount of oversized-ness. Because although Monday is the gloomiest among seven days, we’ll still stunt in our cat eyes to hide the tears.

I’ve noticed that everything on my want list this season is in grayscale or neutral colors – black, gray, white, cream, brown. Usually not afraid of color, this is all kind of new to me but I’m loving it.  It makes it easy to create a look that is classic but with still a bit of an edge.
