Sunglasses are a funny thing. They’re oftentimes the last thing on our minds, yet one of the most important elements of our look/outfit. I personally tend to forget about them… and I have funny rules about them (for example, if I’m wearing my hair curly/natural, I refuse to wear sunglasses because I think it looks too busy. I know. I’m a lunatic.) The thing is, this time of year, eyewear is particularly important…

My friend Felicia (from This That Beauty) has the most beautiful headband. It looks like jewelry. I think it’s from Jennifer Behr. Seeing her out and about at one of many holiday parties inspired me… and made me think. You can toss your hair in a messy bun and still look amazing with a headband like that. So, I set out to make my own. And as luck would have it, it was rather easy…
Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love
This lip sheer (in rose) is right now, my absolute favorite lipstick. I wear it every day. I love that it’s all natural, and it delivers the perfect wash of sheer color. It moisturizes incredibly well, doesn’t feather, and looks good on everyone. The pretty packaging doesn’t hurt either.
I’ve been living in these boots from Freda Salvador. I love that they come with a removable “bracelet” for a bit more embellishment, but you can also wear them on their own. The quality is incredible (they’re handmade in Spain) and they’re so comfortable, too!
Everyone’s buzzing about The Girl on the Train (it’s been hailed the new Gone Girl), so I picked it up last week… and finished it in a matter of 36 hours. It’s a page turner. If you’re in need of a stay-in-bed-all-day and read kind of weekend, get this!
