I firmly believe that a glamorous, gorgeous pair of sunglasses is an absolute necessity — in addition to protecting your eyes, a great pair elevates every outfit, making even the schlubbiest looks a bit more put together. Sunglass Hut asked me to dream about which winter getaway destination I would want to visit, and which outfits I’d want to bring with me, if I were taking this gorgeous pair of sunglasses with me: the Kristina glasses, by Coach. They’re available in a number of colors — gold, grey, silver, blue, white, but I love me a pair of red sunglasses — they just bring so much life to your face.
From the description: “This classic pilot look by Coach is sure to turn heads. In burgundy with red gradient lenses, Kristina is the epitome of American style. Coach lenses provide 100% UV protection, blocking your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultra-violet rays. An iconic part of the Coach DNA, the temple design takes its inspiration from the hangtag included on every authentic Coach handbag. The lozenge logo is frequently linked to classic Coach patterns such as the Legacy Stripe, and are made of exclusive acetate. A Coach Signature grommet is at the end of each temple tip.”
Anyway — now to daydream about my ideal winter getaway. So many choices! In the depths of winter, all I can think about is getting away somewhere WARM. A friend just had a great vacation in the Cayman Islands, so I thought I’d choose that. White beaches, blue waters, tropical drinks… where do I sign up?
For day, I put together this dream outfit — I kind of got addicted to the maxi dress when we honeymooned in Aruba — it goes to the beach, it goes to the museum, it goes for a nice lunch date, it’s comfortable, it’s relaxed, it doesn’t wrinkle… (you can even wear it on the plane!). To go with the red Kristina glasses, I chose this bright, happy blue Rachel Pally dress — I love the combo of light blue and red! I’d also wear a tankini; I’ve been eyeing the ones from Fantasie, the makers of my favorite bras. To accent the look I’d get a red Beirn tote (totally lusting after one), a pair of red flat sandals, a straw hat (love this one from Rag and Bone!) and then (of course) lots and lots of sunscreen.
For a bit of fantasy trip-planning, I also put together this Pinterest board… (click through to see the GORGEOUS beach/water pictures closer up).
Readers, play along with me — where would you go for a winter getaway? Taken any great trips recently (or have any fun ones already on the calendar)?
