Sunglasses are my favorite accessory. I pretty much never leave the house without them and my favorite thing is that they come in so many different shapes, sizes …

STYLE TRENDS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Dressing for weddings is always tricky. There are so many variablesÂ that have to be taken into consideration; location, possible theme, where is the service being held (church? synagogue? backyard?), dress code requirements – black tie (optional), formal, cocktail, the list goes on and on. And while so many people feel like they need to tone it down in order not to stand out too much, leave it to OP to show how to rock sequins for a Hamptons wedding flawlessly. This Naeem Khan number is perfect for a nighttime affair. By keeping it tea-length with a modest neckline, geometric pattern and a clean back, it keeps it from being too “much” and instead is quietlyÂ sexy yet super fashion-forward.

GET THE LOOK:
Denim shorts can be tricky. They are either waaaay too short, can have a saggy butt if they are too big or be anÂ awkward length that isn’t flattering…So when IÂ find the perfect pair ofÂ jean shorts I practically live in them all summer long. The only problem with that is that I can easily fall into a pattern of defaulting to an overlyÂ casual look, which is fine for some of the time, but after a while pairing them with a tank top and a pair of flip flops can get a bit boring. So I decided I wanted to show you guys how to easily elevate denim shorts by just adding a pair of fun, dressier shoes. In this case I opted for a pair of pretty sky blueÂ suede mules for a bit of height and a touch of luxe.Â

Hey guys! Another daily style diary You have seen these jeans on repeat lately (last seen here). I just got them and they are so soft and comfy I’ve worn them almost non-stop! I love that they are high waisted with the relaxed leg style, they are different than any other jeans I own – so good! I could live in a white tee and jeans. Just add a bold lip, nude sandals and a good crossbody and you instantly kick up a casual look for date night.
Below are some great jeans and tee combos:
And since apparently I’m on a pink kick (haha, I didn’t even mean to coordinate my drink – anyone else obsessed with the pink ombre drink at Starbucks?), here are some recent pink finds:

First things first, thereâ€™s something we need to make very clear. As youâ€™ve probably seen with many a male celebrity, there is a world of difference between simply deciding not to cut your hair one day, and growing your hair out with actual effort.
And yes, you can tell the difference between the two. There are a few things you can do to make sure you donâ€™t fall into the former category though, starting with…

WhatIWore: Itâ€™s a new day! A new season! So check out this new version of an old dress! In a solid attempt to perk up my mood, I decided a little DIY project was in order. I bought this dress years ago when I was pregnant with Felix. I also have it in black, which youâ€™ve seen me wear a lot. This blue version? Not as much. The solution – a deeper shade of blue!
I had planned on doing a step by step DIY, but the resulting dress was not what I intended. I thought the embroidery would be a synthetic thread and stay white and the dress would be more navy. Turns out, I should have read the label instead of making assumptions, because this dress is actually rayon, not cotton. When I took it out of the washer I was pretty bummed out, but as it dried, I decided I actually like it a lot!Â
So in lieu of a DIY, hereâ€™s this: buy some dye, read the instructions thoroughly and youâ€™ll be fine. Or maybe youâ€™ll make a mistake and itâ€™ll still turn out ok!

Shades: Karen WalkerÂ â€˜Super Duperâ€™
Dress: Free People, overdyed (more color versions here)
Sandals: Clarks (gift from a few years ago)
Bag: boutique in Hong Kong
Does anyone remember the good old days of WIW when I used to carry this bag all of the time? Itâ€™s one of the pieces I bought when I used to regularly work in Hong Kong and I bought it in a teeny tiny shop in Tsim Sha Tsui. I canâ€™t remember what i paid for it, but it really needs to get back into use, donâ€™t you agree?

Exercise has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember! These days I enjoy mixing it up: thereâ€™s a weekly boot camp at our gym that I love, I still do Insanity videos at home, and lately Iâ€™ve been adding in weight training, or going on long walks with my husband or friends (which also doubles as quality time!).
Having tried as many types of exercise as I have for as long as I have, Iâ€™ve learned that the gear you wear makes a huge difference. I was also sorely in need of new sneakers, and the proper shoes are so important, especially for boot camps and running. My new pair of blush pink Nikes (part of todayâ€™s sponsored post with Finish Line) not only look good but they feel super cushioned, and the top part of the shoe is stretchy, making them the most comfortable workout sneakers Iâ€™ve ever had on my feet.
Beyond shoes, I prefer shorts when it comes to walking and running for comfort. For boot camps, though, stretchy pants are a must when youâ€™re switch kicks and power jumps (the moves Iâ€™m demonstrating in the pictures below). And I often like to pair stretchy pants with a looser tunic-type shirt.
Sometimes new workout gear motivates you to get back on track and sometimes itâ€™s just necessary when your old gear bites the dust. Iâ€™m excited for a little bit of both with todayâ€™s looks from Finish Line. Both looks check all the boxes â€“ affordable, comfortable and stylish!
Which look is your favorite? Whatâ€™s your favorite type of exercise and/or exercise gear?

A helpful tip with shopping for jeans online is building up a few go-to styles and shapes that youÂ know really work for your body shape. For me this is the cropped mini boot cut (JBrand exampleÂ andÂ Frame example), a mum style straight leg jean (3×1 example) and these… a mid to high rise cropped wide leg style.
Key points for me when choosing the right denim are styles thatÂ showÂ the ankle or ones I can alter to create this ideal length, a mid to high rise that I can tuck tops into and styles thatÂ aren’t too skinny.
It can bit a bit of trial an error, but denim is one of those things that once you get your go-to styles, brands and size down pat, you can usually get it right from then on.

“Love is ever changing. It goes from high romance to loyalty and devotion, and every emotion in between depending on what’s happening at the moment. I think what’s kept Frank’s and my twenty six year old relationship going over the years has been humor, and a great deal of flexibility. ( and each of us maintaining our separate homes!!!!)”- Sandi

Ok guys, Copenhagen has confirmed itself as pretty much my favourite travel destination*!
If you’ve been checking out COOLPRETTY.COOL you’ll know I styled this Zoe Karssen rose-embroidered set on cutie Kitty Hayes… and I loved so much I had to get my hands on it. Sadly, the Gucci bag was out of my price range…

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting Seoul for the first time with Michael Kors for their Fall 17 press day. It was an amazing opportunity to get to explore a new city, meet some new people and of course have a play with some pieces from their gorgeous collections. You can see a little preview of what was on offer at their press event, from their new handbag style the Bancroft, to those runway looks I was fawning over after the NYC show in February, and some fun footwear and eyewear.
I was so excited to take in the culture, see some sights, go shopping and eat my way around Seoul. Lucky for me, the MK team had organised some pretty special meals and activities around the event, making for an incredible few days. Here are some of my favourite places to shop, eat and hang out.
– Stay –
With incredible views over the city, an impressive outdoor pool situation, and a buffet breakfast to rival most, Shilla Hotel is the place to be. I loved how close the hotel was to everything, while still feeling very private and secluded.
– Eat –
Located on Namsan Mountain, Poom is a restaurant serving traditional Korean cuisine with a modern twist. The view from their outdoor area makes for a pretty spectacular golden hour, and once in the restaurant, you can watch the sunset in style while you eat. This is where Michael Kors hosted their welcome dinner, the table setup and the food were so beautiful!
Parc is a cute little home-style restaurant tucked away in Itaewon. With a fresh herb and vegetable garden outside, it’s common to see the chefs darting from the kitchen to pick fresh garnishes for your meal. The menu consists of traditional Korean dishes, the recipes of which have been passed down by the owner’s mother.
Craving a cruffin? Never fear, because Mr Holmes Bakehouse (all the way from San Francisco) has got you covered. Offering a variety of insta-friendly baked goods, alongside coffee and those neon signs you might have seen all over the internet, it’s the place to be in Garosugil.
It wouldn’t be experiencing Koren cuisine without trying Korean BBQ! Maple Tree House was the destination for our last dinner in Seoul, and it was worth the wait. There is something quite thrilling about seeing your food get cooked in front of you (patience is a virtue here guys!), and I love the variety of side dishes that adorned the table.
– Shop –
Located in Sinsa-dong, Garosugil is a particularly cool shopping strip with a somewhat European feel in the middle of Seoul. The main street is lined with ginkgo trees and makes for a pretty perfect photo op (I spotted a few photo shoots taking place during my visit). There is everything from big name high-street stores like Zara, Mango and H&M, alongside designer favourites (I love the Michael Kors store here) and a variety of smaller boutiques and vintage stores. If you tire yourself out, stop for an iced latte at any of the cute cafes.
Meanwhile, in Jung-gu, it’s all happening at Myeong-dong. This is pretty much the main shopping district, and you’ll be able to find almost everything imaginable. The main drawcard? Skincare & cosmetics – perfect if you’re planning on stocking up on sheet masks. My personal highlight was the Style Nanda Pink Hotel, a narrow store over a few levels which has been styled like a fun (and oh so pink) boutique hotel, complete with a cafe and rooftop terrace.
If a pop-up style setup is more your thing, dedicate an hour to walking around Common Ground, a shopping and food market made from shipping containers. Get an ice cream, buy some slogan t-shirts, and don’t leave without snapping a pic in front of that blue wall.
– See –
Take in a soaring view of the city from Seoul Sky Observatory, a tower offering 360 degree views with ceiling to floor windows and transparent floors.
Dongdaemun Design Plaza is an art, design and culture hub in Dongdaemun, designed by Zaha Hadid. Worth a visit for the incredible architecture alone, but if time is on your side, be sure to catch an exhibition too.
Hope you enjoy!
