Hello from me and my apartment roommates of A2! Yesterday, Bhumi (top photo), Micah (bottom photo) and I posed for a few cute roommate photos together. We incorporated our pumpkins from the apartment into the shoot to give the photos a fall feel. 

For the photos, I dressed in all black. I styled my look around this black and white polka dot dress. I layered a black long-sleeve top over the dress and tied an open knit sweater around my waist. I broke the "no socks with sandals" rule and styled a pair of black thigh-high socks with a simple pair of black sandals. Bright red lipstick and my oversize glasses completed the look.

Bhumi kept her look simple with a neutral-colored sweater, black leggings and brown lace-up boots. Micah's look revolved around layering; she styled a romper with a black sweater followed by a gray knit sweater. She completed her look with bold lipstick, black knee highs and a pair of wedges. 

Hope that you guys are enjoying your October!

Autumnal Layering

Hello! It's finally becoming chilly enough to start layering and I couldn't be any happier about it. I styled this look around a summer-y daisy print dress. You can see how I styled this dress this past spring/summer here and here. This dress is very breezy and lightweight and therefore, ideal for layering. 

For this look, I slipped a burgundy sweater over top of the dress. The oversize shape, rich autumnal color and texture of this sweater draw me back to it time and time again. I cozied up the look with a luxurious knit scarf. 

I styled the look with a pair of black opaque tights and black heeled booties. I accessorized with a pair of golden earrings and several golden rings.

Gran Optic

Gran Optic

Hello! Today, I have an online eyewear retailer to introduce to you guys- Gran Optic. Gran Optic sells regular glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses for both men and women. They have a particularly incredible collection of Ray Ban sunglasses.

They have an almost endless supply of various glasses. They offer numerous brands, styles/shapes, colors, frame types and materials. And luckily, their site makes it easy to navigate and search for exactly what you are looking for. You can narrow down your search by selecting the type (frame, brand, material, etc.) of glasses that you are specifically looking for.

Cost of frames start at about $40 and run to about $650. They offer a great selection of less expensive as well as more expensive, luxurious brands.

For eyewear inspiration, I look to style icon and blogger, Keiko Lynn (pictured in the photo above.) She incorporates eyewear into her style flawlessly. My favorite glasses from Gran Optic were inspired by this chic fashion blogger; below are my top picks. 

1. "Celine CL 41300 3Y72" $230. These are such a classic pair of glasses and can be easily worn with any outfit. I love the tortoiseshell print of the frames.

2. "Celine CL 41340 12E3" $230. Stand out with a unique pair of neutral-colored glasses. You don't usually see too many people with glasses this color but I'm absolutely in love with this pair.

3. "Bottega Veneta B.V. 214 HM3" $320. Another pair of tortoiseshell glasses makes this list because I simply cannot resist how effortlessly stylish the print is. Not to mention that it looks good with everything.

4. "Dior BLACKTIE170 TRD" $245. These dark glasses emit a very polished, classic feeling and you'll instantly look more studious after slipping these on.

If you are looking for a new pair of glasses or sunglasses to add to your wardrobe, I would definitely recommend checking out Gran Optic; it is almost guaranteed that they will have exactly what you are looking for.
