My Style: American Girl

After a recent road trip, I have been addicted to Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker's hit "American Girl."  Now I know I'm nearly 40 years behind the crowd in discovering the song, but hey, it's a classic and deserves some props.  Channeling my inner rocker, I styled a chic tank top with an oversized kimono (from one of my new favorite brands Chaser) and high-waisted denim.  Little black booties, a fringe purse, delicate dangle earrings, and round sunnies seemed like the perfect finishing touches.  

Now, these sunglasses are extra special because I customized them myself; I selected the frame, lens tint, and lens ombré thanks to an awesome online optical store called Polette.  Polette is unique in how it offers customers a large variety of options and customizations.  Their motto is "Do it different" and they definitely provide a special service for those in the market for new glasses or sunnies.  I recommend checking them out.  

Another special collab this week is with a fellow AZ girl (originally from Hawaii however - lucky, right?) and up-and-coming jewelry brand called Ella Bella Hawaii.  The designer, Ellie, has a beautiful eye and designs jewelry that women of all ages can adore (perfect gift idea for any female on Valentine's Day).  Show her support by liking her Facebook page here and checking out her Etsy store here.  

Also, I have some VERY exciting news, buuuuut I can't give it away just yet.  Let's just say, I will be traveling next week and have been blessed with an incredible opportunity.  I promise to fill you in as soon as I have the go ahead.  In the meantime, stay fabulous and have a beautiful day.  Xoxo, Shelly
