Gee, Shady Biz Brightens My World

19 Oct

I am addicted to sunglasses.  I love the different shapes and styles and colors.  The possibilities are endless, and I cannot get enough of them.

They don’t have to be super fancy and expensive.  The $5 variety is totally fine by me.  It’s more about the character.  Every now and then I’ll splurge on a nice pair (i.e. my Marc Jacobs aviators circa 2008), but not necessary.

Though I am craving a classic pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers right now…but for now, my fun, cheap, and cute Urban Outfitters pair will have to do.  And I’m pretty okay with that.  After all, I’m much less likely to have a meltdown when I clumsily break or lose these babies.

Gee, I’m In Love With UO Jeggings

30 Jul

That’s right, jeggings.  A few months ago, I purchased my first pair of denim leggings from Urban Outfitters.  They essentially resemble skinny jeans.  “Why not just buy skinny jeans, then?,” you might ask.  Because, I say, jeggings are a whole different level of stylish comfort.


Here are the pluses:

  • No fussy buttons and zippers with these babies.  They have a comfortable elastic waist so you can easily slip the things on and off.
  • The denim material is stretchier and feels much lighter than the rough, thick denim that doesn’t always feel so nice after a long day in skinny jeans.
  • They have cute/handy butt pockets.
  • They look like regular jeans.

Don’t get me wrong, here – jeggings are not meant to be a replacement for jeans entirely.  I still cling to my Joe’s and my Paper Denim & Cloth jeans.  But when paired with a long top, jeggings are absolute perfection that spice up the jean routine.  And since I wear long tops all the time, I am a huge fan and advocate for the jeggings (in case you hadn’t noticed).  Pure genius, I say.

In fact, urbanoutfitters.com just marked them down from $39.00 to $19.99!  It’s like Christmas came early!

Girls, before you roll your eyes or chuckle at the idea, just give it a go.  You, too, might just fall in love.
