The Everyday: ADAY X Claudia Di Capua

The Collaboration

ADAY is a brand that creates clothing for the woman with an active lifestyle. They put together items so you don't have to. Modern in look and simplistic in design, all of ADAY's pieces from workout clothes to dress shirts are staples that everyone would benefit from having readily available. I'm happy to be sharing with you "The Everyday Uniform"! These sleek black leggings and cropped bra top are not only a workout go-to, but I definitely see myself wearing this to run errands, on my way to a shoot or any other activity that keeps me busy and moving. Keep scrolling for photos and more details about these pieces!

The Look

When it comes to workout gear, I normally am a skeptic. I find the brand(s) I like and I stick with them. I don't like dealing with see-through clothing or styles that ware out quickly. After trying on these pants and this bra top, I'm happy to say they are now in my very short go-to work out clothes list. The pants aren't super thick (aka breathable) and have that great high waisted look. Best part is, they aren't see-through! I tried to bend over as far as I could to see if the material would become transparent, but it truly did not. The fit, the lightness and the color density are what sold me on these leggings. 

On the trend of trying new things, I've never gravitated to cropped, fitted workout tops, but I have now found out what I've been missing! I'm obsessed! I always thought that they would never be tight enough to hold everything in where it's supposed to be when I'm running etc. and if it was tight enough, I'd be spilling out of it. Guess what, I was wrong! The perfect bra top does exist. I felt secure enough that everything was held in place and that I wasn't popping out of he top. It pairs so well with the high waisted pants and is a very slimming set. 

Overall, I'm blown away by the quality and comfort of this workout set. The material doesn't get that weird white undertone that some spandex gets when you've stretched it to far and let me reiterate, They are NOT see-through! They really nailed it. I received another top from ADAY (that I'll be posting soon so stay tuned) and I noticed a trend. Like I said the design is super modern and simplistic. I noticed this because of the lazer cut look that all of the pieces have and how it feels like you are wearing air because of how light it is. Try it out for yourself, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Dressing for Spring With & Other Stories

THE COLLABORATION

I can't begin to describe how exciting it is to work with brands you've known and loved forever. I'm talking about the brands that you loved before getting into blogging all together! & Other Stories is one of those companies for me. I'm obsessed with their evolution over the years and how there is a modern look to every piece. With all of this said, imagine how happy I was when I came across the physical store in Amsterdam! It truly means so much to now be able to interact with their team and showcase a couple of awesome items!

Trench: & Other Stories | T-Shirt: & Other Stories | Pants: Aritzia (Similar here) | Sneakers: Kenneth Cole | Bag: J. Crew (similar here) | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Socks: Topshop

IMG_8824.jpg

The Look

It was an absolute no brainer when I saw this AMAZING trench that I wanted to feature it on my blog. It honestly couldn't have come at a more perfect time as I have been on the hunt for a good trench for the last few months in preparation for spring! The color and shape are perfect and I love the oversized feel of it. The size gives it that menswear inspired, minimal look I love. Something I didn't know I wanted or needed were the deep pockets. Super helpful especially if you have a bugger phone like I do! This trench looks and feels super high quality. There is a soft silky lining with a strong wind blocking material for the exterior. What I'm trying to say is you need this trench! It has all the looks and functionality you must have this spring. Plus, it's super easy to throw over any daytime look (especially jeans with sneakers or flats).

The second Stories item in this look is this pink t-shirt. It stood out to me because of the writing on the back. I love simple sayings and I am currently trying to beef up my t-shirt collection. They have grown on me in the last few months and are the perfect go-to top for under a light jacket. All we can do is find the coolest graphic t's we can! I chose this color because it's a great light and springy pink that I love with charcoal, blue and white pants or denim. I obviously went with white, but went back a forth about wearing a pair of blue jeans or not! The simple white pant made the complimentary pink socks pop in relation to the t-shirt because they are the same pink. LOVE a good ankle sock!

I went with a tailored and cropped pair of Aritzia pants that are some of the most useful pants  own (have them in two colors). In case I haven't reminded you enough times, it's spring, so I wanted to go with a light pant with subtle details like the double pleat in the front. This pleat made the look slightly more dressy, but is balanced out by the light hearted t-shirt, pink socks and sneakers. Speaking of these sneakers, they're dope (haha). Velcro is the move and look even cooler with nerdy tall socks! 

I had so much fun building a look around this t-shirt and trench coat. They really mesh so well with my style in general, but this did not surprise me with & Other Stories since I love everything! Thank you to their team for sending me these items to try! If you have not had a chance to shop with & Other Stories, I highly recommend you take this seasonal change as an opportunity to throw some of their pieces into your wardrobe!

CD x NA-KD: A Valentine's Day Dream

Claudia Di Capua

A note on what to wear and do with your besties and significant others this Valentine's Day in collaboration with NA-KD 
IMG_6276.jpg
1.png

The Collaboration

The second part of my collaboration with NA-KD revolves around Valentine's and/or Galentines Day! I’m always struggling or waiting until the last second to decide what I’m going to wear and do for our dinner/date night, but not this year. I’m turning a new leaf and getting prepared early with the help of NA-KD! As you can see, I went the romantic route with floral prints and flowy silhouettes. Read on for more on what drew me to this style and shop the entire look below! I've included some activity ideas to do with your besties or SO at the bottom. Use code claudiadicapua20 to receive 20% at checkout on na-kd.com!

I often have a hard time finding super feminine pieces that fit well with my style. I like florals and ruffles, but finding a look that didn’t look frilly, poofy or like I was wearing someone else’s clothes was a challenge. This is until of course, I came across this midi-dress. My biggest dilemma with this dress was choosing what color I wanted! I literally wanted them all. I guess that’s not the worst problem to have?! Don’t get me wrong, I was a little skeptical about the length, the print the ruffles, if it would mesh well with my style and the list goes on. But, taking this leap helped me expand my color choices and broaden my style. Did I mention I’m obsessed with the dress?! 

IMG_6326.jpg
IMG_6356.jpg
IMG_6199.jpg

The Look

This midi, Victorian style number stood out to me because I felt I could make it work for at least two seasons out of the year, maybe three. In the fall I could play the layering game with an oversized sweater and scarf plus a pair of sneakers. The transition period between the winter and spring (aka now) is the perfect opportunity to break it back out for sporadic warm days and of course, Valentine’s Day! 

The layered ruffles and sheer upper body give this dress a whimsical, ethereal and romantic look. I had such a great time spinning around, letting the wind catch the dress as I moved. The cinched waist helped maintain my body’s natural shape, which can sometimes get lost in dresses like this one that have a decent amount of material. The sheer top is what gave this piece its lightness. These types of dresses can look heavy, but certain features helped to eliminate that concern. The neck has the prettiest ruffle and tie closure. It’s not overwhelming and looks just as good untied (as I wore it) as it does tied. I wanted that super romantic, flowy look, which is why I left it open. 

Dress | Shoes | Earrings

A dress like this speaks for itself, so adding too many extras would be doing it a disservice. The print and silhouette spoke volumes leading me to select the simplest pair of heels I have. This is Valentine's date night after all! Do not be deterred, though. I tried this dress on with sneakers and love the sporty juxtaposition. Other than these minimal black sandals, I only added a pair of Mejuri gold hoop earrings and let the morning sunrise do its thing with the glow! Remember to get your V Day looks soon so they arrive before your date night with your SO or besties! (claudiadicapua20 for 20% off).

To The Beach

The last part of our shoot took us to the beach. It was still early morning, so we were able to watch a huge group of Venice Beach surfers catch some waves while we finished up. 

If you haven’t gone to a beach early in the morning, I suggest you do! The wind is a little calmer and the gradual sunrise helps you start your day off right. I’m definitely going to end more of my shoots on a beach when I can! Having the sand between your toes and wind in your hair while watching a sport you love (but obviously can’t actually do) makes shooting SO much fun!

V-Day Activities to do with your Besties and/or Significant Other

  1. Take a cooking class with Sur La Table
  2. Go to the aquarium and head to a nice dinner after
  3. Bake a few of the crazy VDay inspired cakes and treats from a Tasty or Tastemade video and enjoy it while watching rom coms

Dressed Up Vs. Dressed Down in NA-KD the Brand

Claudia Di Capua

The Collab

I've partnered up with NA-KD, a brand that has taken Instagram street style by storm and one that I have aspired to work with for a while! This couldn't have come at a more perfect time as I have just hit 10k followers on Insta (woohoo!) giving me the ability to share their awesome clothing with all of you.

See how I dressed up and dressed down a couple of different pieces below and keep an eye out for a Valentine's Day post featuring another gorgeous item. Shop the NA-KD pieces below on na-kd.com using code claudiadicapua20 for 20% off you order!

34.png

THE LOOK

As an avid denim wearer, it can become monotonous wearing a certain style all the time or a certain shade. When I was approached by NA-KD with a selection of clothing including these jeans, I knew these had to be a piece that I featured! I'm obsessed with the seam down the front of the leg leading into a slit at the ankle. The ankle is the part that really sells these for me. I already have skinny black jeans with a high waist, but the subtle details on this pair are a game changer! The pants can be worn with heels or flats without losing their intrigue. The slit is an eye catcher and adds the perfect amount of detail.

I've thrown in two new things that I don't normally wear. They are hats and the color purple. I couldn't resist getting myself a beret! I want one in every color at this point. Speaking of color, let's chat about this plum purple blazer situation. I ordered this blazer in about 3 different colors before I settled on this one! Something about the silky sheen that it has along with the super feminine shape and rich color really made me take the leap. I love a long blazer, but it has been difficult finding one that is oversized and doesn't look frumpy. This one is the perfect length to wear it buttoned or unbuttoned and can be dressed up or down. Shop the whole look below!

THE LOOK

Cozy and cool for the win! Or at least trying to be cool (haha). This NA-KD sweatshirt is super soft and has the cut that I always go for. I'm not a huge fan of hoods, so the street style mock neck is right up my alley. I love the length because I can tuck in the front perfectly into a pair of high waisted pants or skirt. The embroidered text gives the sweatshirt that added quality I'm always looking for!

I was desperate to stay cozy in this frigid morning temperature, but in order to jazz it up I went with pair of striped palazzo pants by Reformation. You may recognize them from last season's NYFW, but I have repurposed them in a more down to earth way. Pairing them with my favorite and first pair of nike's, I felt effortless strolling down the Soho streets.

No street style look is complete without adding something a tad weird (but so gooood). Asos was my go-to for these crazy sunglasses, or should I say fashion glasses. They of course don't work as well as my more functional sunglasses that cover a little more area, but they look so cool! Asos has the BEST prices on sunnies, so definitely check them out if you want to try out some new styles.

Claudia Di Capua X Two Feathers: A Minimalist's Dream

Claudia Di Capua

IMG_8680.jpg

The Collaboration

Collaborating with Two Feathers is like being in a minimalists dream. I had a hard time selecting what I wanted to feature because every piece is so wearable and simple. I love how all of their pieces can be worn with a number of looks. I landed on this asymmetrical top and long duster jacket. Both are amazing and will be getting lots of use as we head into fall! The tank looks so delicate and the jacket is the perfect weight for light breezy weather. I truly am obsessed and can't wait to see how many different looks I can put together using these two pieces!

Top: Two FeathersJacket: Two Feathers Pants: AritziaShoes: Karl LagerfeldWatch: Daniel Wellington

The Look

I was inspired by the structural nature of this cami, so I built the rest of the look around this concept. These tailored Aritzia pants are a new staple for me! I love them so much that I went back to buy them in a sleek olive green color. I highly recommend them because they can easily be worn with sneakers on a Saturday or to the office for work. A simple shoe swap transitions this look from work to play. 

This duster jacket couldn't have come at a better time. I've wanted one for so long, but couldn't seem to find one I loved. This pajama-esque version kept my look light and airy, but also sleek. There is a tie that goes around the waist, so no worries if it gets a

IMG_8857.jpg

little chilly outside! This jacket complements the tank so well not just in color, but also is structure.While the tank has rigid lines, the jacket falls more loosely around my body creating a nice contrast within the look. 

Let't talk about these new shoes! These Karl Lagerfeld slides were hidden gems in a sea of sale shoes at Lord & Taylor. I got them for a steal and never looked back. They draw inspiration from the classic Manolo Blahnik heel and converts it to a sporty version. Most of my sneakers have backs, so it's refreshing to see this style without the covered heel. 


Claudia Di Capua X ThePeachBox

Claudia Di Capua

The Collaboration

As you can see, I've partnered with ThePeachBox to share a couple of my favorite pieces from their latest collection! It's no secrecy I love silver jewelry, so I was happy to spread the word about this super chic Marc Bale Silver Crystal Watch and silver Roman Empress bangle. The work so well together and are timeless pieces! I'm a huge fan of the layered minimal jewelry look, so these pieces together mix with my current jewelry collection so well. I can truly say that ThePeachBox supplies some of the best modern looking jewelry at amazing prices. I definitely recommend checking them out for your jewelry layering needs!

The Look

Let's dive into this look and how I styled around this watch and bracelet. With both pieces of jewelry being minimalistic, simple and elegant pieces, I wanted to create a look that complemented that simplicity. Also, these accessories are super comfortable, so of course the look had to match! For my own sake. 

A rule of thumb for me when try to make a casual look feel more put together is throwing on a blazer. A simple blazer like this H&M one isgreat for summer and looks effortless over a t-shirt or blouse. Personally, I like them over t-shorts because it gives the look that street style vibe. This is why I paired the blazer with a simple linen top from Madewell. They have the softest, comfiest tees! 

You probably remember these jeans because I wear them so often! I found these babies on sale on Revolve by Lovers & Friends. The quality of denim is so high and they sit perfectly on my hips (not to low or high). I've decided that having a lot of cheaper low quality jeans is not worth it. Investing in higher quality jeans makes them last longer and you'll probably like them longer as well. 


Lauren Ralph Lauren Summer Collection: An Evening in SOHO

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Aritzia (very similar here) / Jeans: Lauren by Ralph LaurenHeels: ZaraBag: Lauren by Ralph LaurenSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Collaboration

I’m partnering with Ralph Lauren to help share their Summer 2017 Lauren by Ralph Lauren line! I am so grateful to be working with a company that I have known and loved for so much of my life. I spent a day in various parts of NYC showing you how seamlessly this collection merged with my style and how well each piece worked for different times of day. In this post and the one I posted on Tuesday, I’ll be highlighting the Lauren Ralph Lauren Carrington Brigitte Tote, Premium Cropped Denim and Off the Shoulder Top. See how I styled each piece, shop the items and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

The Look

It's hard to pick, but this look has to be my favorite of the two I put together for this collab (see the other one here)! I love looks that work well for both daytime and nighttime purposes. All I had to do was unbutton a few buttons on the shirt and switch my sneakers to heels to transition this look! 

Now, let's talk about these premier cropped skinny jeans. They are truly some of the most comfortable jeans I have now and sit perfectly at my waist. Let's be real, high waisted jeans aren't always the first pick,

but this pair sits just below where normal high waisted jeans sit making them super comfy! I'm a huge fan of the cropped look, so I love how these allow for a little ankle to show. Believe it or not, I think shortening the jeans a little actually lengthens your leg especially when worn with heels. 

Drum roll please...the Carrington Brigitte Tote everyone. I can't get enough of it! This may look on the bigger side, but it fits so much inside and looks like a completely upgraded messenger bag when wearing like a crossbody. You can wear it short by just holding onto the handles or let it hang perfectly at your hips. I've had experiences where the long strap is way too long, but this one is just right! The bag is simple and carries that signature classic RL style so well. 

Seeing as both the jeans and bag seemed so timeless, I made sure to complement these pieces with a simple/minimal blouse that had a modern twist. This oversized Aritzia blouse has bee a favorite of mine for about a year now and the oversized look feels so effortless and airy. I definitely recommend shopping both this Lauren by Ralph Lauren line as well as the minimal pieces at Aritzia!


Lauren Ralph Lauren Summer Collection: A Day in NYC

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Lauren by Ralph LaurenShorts: J. CrewBag: Zara Sunglasses: Ray-BanHeels: Public Desire

The Collaboration

I’m partnering with Ralph Lauren to help share their Summer 2017 Lauren by Ralph Lauren line! I am so grateful to be working with a company that I have known and loved for so much of my life. I spent a day in various parts of NYC showing you how seamlessly this collection merged with my style and how well each piece worked for different times of day. In this post and the one to come on Thursday, I’ll highlighting the Lauren Ralph Lauren Carrington Brigitte Tote, Premium Cropped Denim and (name of top). See how I styled each piece, shop the items and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

The Look

Summer is all about the cold shoulder and off the shoulder looks, so blogging about this top had the word “yassss” running through my mind! I like how the top has short sleeves rather than long or draped. I haven’t seen off the shoulder tops like this very often and this style felt very clean and timeless. In NYC heat, carrying around heavy weighted clothing is a no. This blouse is not only light weight, but it has a chambray look to it and delicate arm and hem details that give it an airier look!

While you are more than welcome to wear this blouse long, I prefer to tuck it into my shorts or pants. I opted for a simple white pair of shorts fro J. Crew (sooo comfortable)! The denim is so soft and works perfectly with everything form dressy tops to t-shirts. To keep this cool color palette going, I made sure to keep my accessories in the silver/grey hue. I’ve head these heels for a while, but the lace-up and simplistic style are keeping this pair as a go-to. I never get sick of them!

I’m obsessed with this Zara bag! They have it in a few colors (which I just saw online) and I may have to scoop up a few more! I came across this silver version in a store and fell in love. I usually go for a tote or cross body bag, but never considered other styles. The straps are the perfect length to wear as a shoulder bag, but also have it hang low enough to not be in the way. Also, there is a zipper to store any valuables! It’s perfection and I highly recommend.


Ally Denovo: Carrara Marble Timepiece

Claudia Di Capua

I'm super excited about my latest collaboration, guys! I love accessories, so that means watches. Ally Denovo is a Switzerland based watch company that has nailed the art of creating modern and fashion forward timepieces while keeping them at a reasonable price. Who doesn't want that?!

1. Classic St. Gallen | 2. Vintage Mesh Rose Gold | 3. Carrara Marble Silver | 4. Carrara Marble Black | 5. Mini Vintage Mesh Silver | 6. Vintage Mesh Rose Gold /Black | 7. Carrara Marble Full Black | 8. Carrara Marble Gold Black | 9. Gaia Pearl Pure White | 10. Mini Vintage Rose Gold

We all are so use to looking at our digital devices to tell time, but Ally Denovo is giving us all a reason to embellish our wrists with watches again. Not only does this watch serve the function of telling you the time of day, but the styles and designs will only enhance your accessories game. Layering these watches with simple bracelets or adding a few rings brings your look to a whole new level!

As you can see above, I rounded up a bunch of my favorite styles from both there latest and previous collections. I love the simplicity and personality that comes with each watch. It's no surprise that many of my favorites feature a marble face, but I'm also obsessed with the mesh styles. Both the silver and rose gold mesh options are sure to give your arm candy some serious luxe vibes! 

Of course, my overall favorite is the Carrara Marble Silver, which is shown in the larger photo above. I'll be posting how I style a watch like this within a week, so keep an eye out for it! I linked all of my Ally Denovo picks above. Happy exploring!

Go Rogue With Coach

The Collaboration

I've partnered with Coach to tell you all about a new beauty that is part of their new collection, aka the Rogue bag. I'm sharing why I love it, some cool features and why I styled it the way I did! It's so cool to me to be able to share with you an awesome bag from a company that I am so grateful to be working with! I can't wait to show you how this bag will step up your accessories game this season. 

Coach has stepped up their game and bags like these are only amplifying my street style game. The versatility of the straps and the simple white color of this bag is going to have me coming back to this bag all spring and summer! 

The Look

With a bag like this, I knew I needed to create a look that complements the lightness and springiness while still staying true to my personal style. That is how I came to but together this feminine and ruffled Mango blouse with the contradicting style of the Zara skirt. I love how they balance each other out! the skirt has a slight flare towards the bottom, which I think is so cute. But what really sold me on this skirt was the studded hem. I love little details like this! The blouse is light and airy, which is ideal for warm weather!

Let's talk about how the bag comes into play in this look. It's small to medium size makes it perfect for everyday use. I'm completely obsessed with the gold details and removable straps! I can sling it over my shoulder or hold it by the handles. Either way, the Rogue bag adds a modern touch to whatever I wear it with! The classic large zipper is a nice detail in addition to the huge amount of space this bag actually provides. 

It was hard to choose accessories that didn't go with this bag! Again, the light color and fresh look made it so that I could wear it with basically any of my sunglasses and jewelry. The deep red/maroon handles and piping are a gorgeous addition to the bag and help to balance out the light and the dark, which similarly matches the theme of  my look.

Overall, I think it's safe to say that this sleek little bag is making moves on my spring wardrobe and I couldn't be happier!

Dressing Up A Simple T-Shirt With Chews Boutique

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Chews / Jeans: Levi's (also here) / Heels: Missguided (similar here) / Bag: MangoBelt: Gucci

The Collaboration

While I am collaborating with a new brand, I am happy to say that it is with a person I have worked with before! Remember my JQ Vancouver collab?! Well the owner started a new clothing company and it is awesome. I'm so excited to be showcasing one of Chews short sleeve tops. It is super soft and such a pretty nude shade. Also, there is a side not detail on the hem of the shirt, but I tucked in the shirt so it's a little hard to see (sorry)! JQ Vancouver was one of my first collaborations, so I am so happy and proud to be circling back to partner with their new business. 

The Look

I can finally go outside in a short sleeve top and lace up heels! This Chews top is cool because I can wear it in a few different ways. The sleeves are a little long, so you can wear them dow or rolled up a few times like I did. I like the rolled look because it makes the top a little sportier and casual. 

Because of the simplicity of the top and jeans, I opted for my standout Mango handbag and Gucci belt. I love how the gold embellishments on the bag and belt warm up the cool tones of the top and jeans. This bag is so cute and reminds me of one of the new Gucci bags. Also, I love patches, so this bag was a must have!

I want to talk about my hair and makeup for a second because I was pretty happy with how it turned out for this post. I'm a huge supporter of the half-up half-down look. Check out my photoshoot makeup routine here.

London Vibes: Romwe Patched Blazer

Claudia Di Capua

Blazer: Romwe / Blouse: Hartford (similar here and here) / Jeans: Levi's / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Bag: Express (also here) / Shoes: Kenneth Cole

THE LOOK

For this post, I have collaborated with Romwe to show you how I would style a patch covered blazer! I’m really excited to be working with them again (check out my last collab with them) and to try out a color that I normally stray away from, red. A lot of the patches have some red involved plus I threw a a red flower embroidered bag on top, so I’m going for it! 

I was inspired by London streetwear, so I paired the blazer with a simple linen blouse, skinny jeans and velcro sneakers. The lengthy blazer style and patches scream London to me and I love how the embroidery on the bag strap complements the patches. I wore the bag messenger style to really show off the guitar strap detail and have it close enough to the patches. One of my favorite parts of this light jacket is the lining! The stripes are awesome, so I made sure to let it peek out at the cuffs. Unfortunately, this blazer is sold out, but I did a roundup of other patch options that Romwe has to offer!

I just bought these sunglasses for Marijn, aka bae, aka my photographer's birthday, but I loved them so much I had to borrow them for a post! They truly complete the Londoner vibe I was going for.

Move Your Lee: The Dream Jean

These jeans are just what this title sounds like! The Dream Jean has the movement of a jeggings, but the look, feel and quality of a real pair of jeans. While I was shooting this look, I was experimenting with a bunch of different angles and moving around a lot to get the right shot. Seriously, sitting criss cross apple sauce and everything. I forgot I was wearing jeans half the time!

These pants are so easy to move in and are great for those that want to feel stylish, but know they are going to be on the move all day. They look great with jeans and heels! I tried them on with a pair of pumps and found that they would look great going out to dinner or a little more dressed up. Personally, I love them for their casual vibe and are perfect for my everyday activities!

Felix Gray Blue Light Glasses

Claudia Di Capua

About Felix Gray

I always wore glasses as a kid and resented it for the longest time. In recent years, I have found myself wanting glasses again, not having a reason to, and not wanting to be that person that wears fake glasses! With all that being said, Felix Gray gave me an actual reason to wear glasses again, and it has nothing to do with prescription lenses. Let me introduce you to an enemy named blue light.

A high-energy light called blue light is emitted by all screens. Yes, that means your iPhone, iPad, tablet, desktop, laptop and TV! Because of blue light's impact on melatonin levels, this results in difficulty sleeping at night. Also, the high frequency of blue light can lead to eye strain, which can cause headaches and eye fatigue. 

Why These Glasses Are Great

As a student who is always doing work on my computer, watching shows on my iPad, or constantly checking my phone, my eyes have had enough! While I don't where rx prescription lens glasses, Felix Gray was able to hook me up with a pair of their Nash glasses in black that are non-prescription and that only prevent blue light. I have noticed a reduction of pressure in my head after a long day of classes or blogging, which normally would have just lead to a headache! I am also falling asleep faster than before (let's face it, I fall asleep with Instagram on my phone being the last thing I see). 

I love the sleek design of my glasses and how the cellulose acetate frame isn't too thick or overbearing, which by the way is super high quality and made in Varese, Italy! I debated between the circular or square shapes that Felix Gray offers, but finally decided that the square style suited my face bit better. They are chic and super minimal, which is right up my alley. The lenses also reduce glare! I finally get to wear glasses again and even though they aren't rx, they still serve an awesome purpose aside from looking cute with my outfits!

My Look

I've been very intrigued by denim on denim lately, so I figured why not try out a different look while also debuting myself in glasses!? In this look I am wearing Felix Gray's Nash glasses in black. 

I just got this jacket on gilt.com and I love it! The edges are frayed for the most part and it has a real 90's feel to it. The sleeves are slightly oversized and the shape is slightly cropped. I'm V proud of this purchase!

An always favorite Levi's Wedgie fit along with a classic Hartford blouse felt like the perfect combo. I went light on the accessories to keep the focus on the glasses, although I do love this Gucci belt!

Last, but definitely not least, my blue velvet boots completed this look with a pop of color and texture. 

Slouchy Knits With Shein

Sweater: SheIn / Scarf: Urban Outfitters / JeansMadewell / Belt: Gucci / Boots: Asos (also here) / Bag: Express / Sunglasses:Ray-Ban

THE LOOK

In collaboration with SheIn, I put together this look featuring one of their sweaters! *SIDE NOTE* Did you guys notice that the photos are a bit clearer?! Well, I got a new camera lens that has done wonders! I digress.

This cozy knit is perfect for breezy weather. I'm obsessed with the bell sleeves and soft material. It also reminds me of a Free People styled sweater, but at a very affordable price! I paired this slouchy knit with an even slouchier blanket scarf from Urban Outfitters. This scarf has saved my life in chilly weather. I love wrapping it around my neck for that oversized cozy feel and wearing long like I did in this post. It is so versatile and really keeps me warm! I found these high waisted Madewell jeans by accident, but I'm so glad I did. They are the perfect skinny and sit just right at the waist. I love have rich the black shade looks on these jeans as well. They meets the sweater so that I can easily tuck the front into the jeans, allowing whatever belt I'm wearing to peek out. Speaking of which, I've been living in this Gucci belt! It goes with absolutely everything and adds a simple luxe vibe to your look. Of course, can't forget about these killer boots! They bring pointed toe to a new level. I love the shape, smoothness of the leather and studding detail. Officially my new favorite ankle boots!

Shop any part of this look using the links above! This sweater is priced amazingly and be quick with the boots because there aren't very many sizes left. Happy shopping and let me know what you thought about this look on my Instagram or in the comments below!

The drawstrings on the bottom of each bracelet make adjusting the size very easy. Not only are they great for stacking and adding some depth to your jewelry, they are super functional too!

4th of July Accessory Round-up // By Olivia Perez of Friend of a Friend

Claudia Di Capua

With summer temperatures upon us, we’re saying goodbye to our overcoats and jackets and hello to crop tops, shorts, and sandals. Luckily, the temperature also allows for much more skin real estate, which means it’s prime time to show off the best accessories of the season. A self-proclaimed jewelry fanatic, I’m excited to bring out my brightest and boldest pieces now that I’m not hiding under all those layers— here’s what I’m looking forward to wearing for the upcoming holiday weekend:

JQ Vancouver Collaboration & Giveaway

Claudia Di Capua

It's GIVEAWAY time (again)! I've partnered up with JQ Vancouver for the second time to give one of you an amazing necklace of your choosing because of the great response we got from the last giveaway! Head over to my Instagram (@TheFashionAttraction) and JQ Vancouver's Instagram (@jqvancouver) later today for how to enter!

 

Silver Layered Heart Necklace

This is probably my favorite necklace from the whole collaboration! You may remember this necklace in gold from our original collab, so it can't come as that much of a surprise. It's so light and looks effortless. I find it is styled best with a lower v-neck neckline. It combines the cool lariat look with a layered lightness.

 
 

Double Bar Necklace

This is by far the most versatile necklace of the bunch! I wore this necklace as a choker, long, loose and even as a bracelet. It was perfect for all of those street style looks that needed to be spruced up with pretty jewelry!

 
 

Silver Triangle Necklace

Exchange the heart for a triangle and the 2 layers for one, and you have the silver triangle necklace! It's essentially more of a lariat and perfect if you are into the less is more/minimal aesthetic. I love this piece and honestly, it comes down to mood when I'm choosing between wearing this necklace vs. the layered heart necklace.

 
 

Gold Bar Necklace

The gold bar necklace is perfect against a contrasting shade like white or black. I wish I was a bit tanner in this picture, but the clothing you choose to pair with it definitely makes a difference! It's simple and elegant. If you aren't into the long necklaces, this is for you!

Rumba Time Watches // Soho Leather

Claudia Di Capua

Shop all Rumba Time watches at rumbatime.com and find my outfit information from this post under the lookbook tab!

Soho Leather:

This timepiece is as classic as it gets. The leather bands are a simple black that helps me to style this with many looks, but what really pops is the rose gold. Most people usually gravitate towards the yellow gold or silver look without even considering rose gold. This could be because maybe you don't have enough jewelry to match it. If you own yellow gold jewelry, you have something to wear with it! These two golds complement each other well. 

Others Like it: Soho Suede

The watch comes in various textures and colors aside from my Soho leather version. The face of the watch is also either gold or silver on the suede versions while my leather watch is rose gold. I love how large the face of the watch is because it helps it to really stand out and catch the light.

How I Styled The Watch:

I wanted this look to be a bit edgier and to play around with textures, which is how I managed to put all of these different pieces together. No surprise that everything is black!

All Black Everything:

By wearing all black, (besides the fact that I love it), the rose gold of the watch was able to pop in contrast to the clothing. 

The black band of the watch helped me to maintain that edgy look that I was going for. Also, because it is a leather band, the watch complemented my leather boots, zipper on the jacket and bag nicely. There was an obvious texture trend throughout the look, which is leather. 

For a layered look, try adding a mix of yellow gold and rose gold jewelry!
