Heat Wave

Back in the city that is my church, at long last. All is going well, save for a minor mishap of falling on my head. Also, let’s state the obvious, IT’S SO HOT. I wore this outfit Wednesday to a few meetings, hair up and staying cool. On hot days like this you NEED to protect your eyes from the sun, and why not with a stylish pair of sunglasses? SmartBuyGlasses offers great prices on amazing brands, including my favorite, Ray Bans! Similar to the ones I’m wearing in this post, these white wayfarers are a great summer pick. Other great brands they offer? D&G, Prada, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, and everything else you could ever want, so be sure and check them out (and save 25%-30%!)

Palace Playland

One extremely hot day of vacation, the BF, siblings and I hit up the downtown arcade and amusement park, Palace Playland. We splurged on all-day bracelets for the rides, which definitely worked out their worth with the log flume ride alone. With our bracelets we rode each ride a few times, and bumper car’d for a solid half hour straight.

 

After being worn out by constant motion, we moved on to the arcade and played a ton of skee ball, basketball, and motion games, winning a solid 656 tickets, used for bracelets and candy 😀

Now, for what I wore:

Wet seal tanks

Express Shorts

Charming Charlie’s bag (NEW!)

DB sandals

Vacation Inspirations

Every year my family takes a 10-14 day vacation to a family owned house on the beach front in Scarborough, Maine. This year, I’ve already started planning (slightly prematurely) what exactly I should be wearing and bringing, besides my usual simple plain tees, shorts, jeans, and hoodies for over my swimwear. I’d like to share with you my mid-summer vacation fashion inspirations.

(please note none of these images are my own. Almost ALL have been scrounged from Tumblr)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Things I’ll be sure to bring:

White denim

tribal top/s

caged wedges

long skirt

comfy knit (those Maine summer nights grow oh so cold!)

sneakers

tee shirts

Fringed tops

a nice dress, or four.

BOLD SWIMSUITS!

And just to warn you all, this vacation will be July 6-16th, so bear with me if my posting is sparse during those days, I may be too busy enjoying the sunshine and surf! 😀

Oh, and while jello shots are a definite, I think I’ll have to test my culinary skills to make these:

Vacation

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I’ve been on a lovely vacation in Maine with my family and the boy. It wasn’t a very fashionable week, but here’s a few shots just for fun and whatnot!

While I’ve been relaxing on the beach I’ve also been doing some work. There’s some great things coming up this week so get ready!!

Bring on The Stunna Shades

Sure, its still raining out, but I’m SO ready for sun, especially with the release of 12 new designs by A-Morir. Designer Kerin.Rose brings you the choicest shades to stand out in style. Top clients include the infamous Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Estelle, and Katy Perry. These stunning shades and frames were also recently used on the Fall/Winter 10 runway show for Christian Siriano. All A-Morir shades are totally unique and so skillfully crafted; no one yet has even attempted to reproduce them. The brand, the inspiration, the repertoire are all spectacular.

(immage from Status Magazine, Issue 10)

Kerin.Rose seems to be inspired by Past pop/rock idols as well as particular style era’s. The newest products include a pair of Iggy pop inspired frames beaded in black as well as Janis Joplin inspired oversized shades and Petula Clark inspired funky framed shades.
My favorites, though, are the A-Morir classics. “Barracuda” shades are some hip hop favorites, made of black studs with a car tint effect; people can’t see you through the shades, but you can see them. Second favorites are the Sioux Lace Eyewear. I’m a big fan of lace for the upcoming season and what better way than rocking out and blocking out (the sun)!
Customer and consumer favorites appear to be the many variety of Love/Hate convertible sunglasses. These shades have a chain (or diamonds or pearls or neon chain…etc) that can be worn a multitude of ways. Each style is encrusted with beads for added flair.
As for price, these fashionable sun blockers are pretty high (when compared to the $10 Kanye wanna-be’s you can find on the street). Prices range from $150 up to $600. But you’re paying for originality and a total statement piece, so in my opinion, its worth the splurge.

Where to buy? www.store.a-morir.com Also, I suggest following A-Morir on Twitter (@Kerinrose).

Now, bring on the sun and shades; let spring reign!
