My Style: Heartbreaker

Today's Look:  is all about hearts, fringe, and blue.  Today, I channeled a retro, pinup-girl vibe in honor of the summer trend: heart-shaped sunglasses.  Even though heart-shaped sunglasses are a current fashion trend, they can be dated back to as early as the 1950s.  They didn't become popular until after the original promotional photos for the 1962 movie Lolita. Heart-shaped sunglasses were worn by the actress Sue Lyon as photographed by Bert Stern to the right.  Now, once again, heart-shaped sunglasses have gained popularity.

To start the look off, I chose my royal blue, tie-bottom top, and high-waisted jean shorts.  Since the shorts are a very pale blue with white hearts bleached on for design, it was a perfect opportunity to wear my white-rimmed, heart sunglasses.  I also wore white sandals, blue crystal stud earrings, and a white fringed purse to complete the look.

Today's photos were taken at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona.  I was in Tucson all week, enjoying the sun and shopping.  I highly recommend the resort if you're looking for 5 star accommodations with pools, tennis courts, golf courses, a spa, and gourmet restaurants.

Fashion Tip:  When trying to pull a purse into an outfit, in winter you match your boots to the purse, but in summer you can match your sandals with the purse.  If you're interested in purchasing some funky heart sunglasses, I included an array as well as their links below.
