Moody Picks - Florals? For Spring?

Happy Saturday everyone!  I can't talk about spring florals without quoting the legendary Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada: "Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking." I totally agree that florals for spring isn't anything new, but they are a fashion staple every season.  And florals are the epitome of spring. For this week’s Moody Picks, I hand-picked (pardon the pun!) my favorite florals that you'll want to be wear this spring.  And the best part of these floral-printed items is that they are all under $100.00.  So you can be on trend without killing your budget.

In The Mood: Warby Parker’s Newest Collection

Beach vacations, flowers in bloom and lots of sunshine will be here before you know it with the first day of spring quickly approaching.  And the best way to welcome in the rays is with a handful of sunglasses in new silhouettes and colors.

Warby Parker is launching their newest sunglass collection today called The Daydream Collection.  And I’ve picked out a couple styles that I’m loving right now and I think you will too. The new collection includes 2 new frame shapes in 2 different colors each: Jackson (a wider but similar take on the ever-likeable Winston) and Abel (a little angular, a little round, a lot of fun). They’ll be your new grab-and-gos for lunchtime saunters and Vitamin D replenishment, while current favorites Piper, Topper, and Madison get a little freshening-up in colorways like Petal Tortoise, Crystal, and English Oak.


Here are some of my favorites so far:



The Daydream Collection is available at Warby Parker retail locations (here) and online at WarbyParker.com.  All of the frames start at $95, which is an awesome deal because the price includes prescription lenses.  And if you’re a little iffy about buying sunglasses online, then don’t worry. Warby Parker’s Home Try-On program allows you to pick ouf five of your favorite frames to try-on at home for five days! Crazy right? All you have to do is mail back the frames that you don’t want and simply pay for the frames you want to keep.  How easy is that?  And the shipping is absolutely free for this service.  See, I told you not to worry. 

Although I don’t personally own a pair, I jumped at the opportunity to share this collection with you all because I’m a big a fan of their glasses and the company.  Did you know that Warby Parker promises that for every pair of eyeglasses purchased, a pair will be given to someone less fortunate? The “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program has already distributed over a million glasses to people in need in over 35 countries. I love supporting companies that is in the business of creating excellent products, as well as making a major impact on the community in the process. If you want to learn more about this program – check out this inspirational video here.

So as I daydream about wearing these cute new sunglasses, spending hours at the beach and long weekend getaways with family and friends, you should check Warby Parker’s new line of sunglasses.  These sunglasses are the perfect way to ease you into the new season and not a moment too soon.  Let me know which ones are your favorites. Wishing you all a beautiful Tuesday!

Moody Picks – Bold Stripes

Spring is just around the corner and by now every clothing store has stocked the shelves with bright clothes for the new season. Over the past few years, designers and stores showcased a nautical theme with crisp white and navy hues. Well, this year the designers decided to go a different route and focus less on a nautical theme and more on bold and sometimes bright stripes.  The bold stripes styles vary in color and width, so there is a little something for everyone.  I’m pretty sure this trend will compliment any stripe lover’s wardrobe.  Check out the bold striped pieces that I’m coveting most and let me know what you think in the comments.
