Cute clutch from Trellis can be mongrammed!

It’s everywhere: Sunglasses, watches, necklaces, earrings – shoes and more. The tortoise print is particularly stunning when blended with turquoise. Michael Kors, Chanel and many more brands have introduced pieces in the pattern that has never really gone out of style. It’s at Trellis, department stores and just about everywhere.

I bought my daughter a cute necklace with a tortoise chain link chain and a pendant with an anchor on it. I wish I had bought two!

Take note — this is not real tortoise: many turtle and tortoise species are protected by a variety of endangered species laws. It’s usually a resin, but what a resin it is. 

I know I had combs and other items with this look as a kid. It dresses up black and just about anything. These are some fun looks in a pattern that looks an awful lot like leopard. Purrr.

white hotIf you wait until Memorial Day weekend to break out the whites — it’s here. And white dresses are the best. I have two, but I would like to have a little more of a tan as one of my accessories. I’m working on that right now! These dresses are from Zappos.

You gotta love a name like White Haute Fashions. Click on that link for some great looks — white with plenty of colorful accessories to pop some style.

Have a spectacular Memorial Day weekend!

sun2I have seen this idea in a lot of places, but the folks from Kohl’s sent me some really cute and inexpensive choices for sunglasses shapes that flatter your face for $17 and up. Here they are:

If your face is round: Create contrast, wear square or rectangular frames that are slightly wider than the broadest part of your face.  These floral shades at left are from L.C. Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s for $18 — on sale.

squareIf your face is square: Choose sunglasses with a higher top than at the bridge with oval or round frames that soften facial features. These babies at left are only $11 on sale at Kohl’s.

longIf your face is long: Choose angular and squared lenses. Try on those bad boys at right from Apartment 9, $13 on sale at Kohl’s.

If your face is oval: Anything goes. These cool Candie’s Retro Florals are $14.99 at Kohl’s.

If your face is heart-shaped: Choose a pair that adds width to the lower part of the face. Glasses that are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom — aviators and cat-eye sunglasses are good choices. Check out these Cat’s eye lenses from Apartment 9 for $12.99.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says that children’s eyes are at increased risk for permanent damage from sunlight until they are at least 10 years old, because their eyes are highly sensitive and still developing. The Real Kids Shade shared the news.

It’s also true that 90 percent of damage from the sun occurs by age 18. We all use sunscreen, but less than a third of parents protect kids’ eyes. That would include me.

There are lots of cute shades for kids out there, and they range from $14.99 and up babies to tweens (with and without straps to hold them on). Teens will want to wear them on their own because shades are cool.
