FOUND! The Perfect Sunglasses at 20% OFF!

I honestly cannot express to y'all enough how excited I am for tonight's post!!

If you're anything like me, you've struggled in your search for great sunglasses!  I am always afraid of going into the Sunny Hut, if you catch my drift, mainly because the help is so stand offish and I feel like I'm going to process alone.  As a fashion blogger, I know the importance of a great pair of sunglasses!  Accessories and glass complete a great ensemble, so you can imagine the predicament this puts me in...

I recently was on the market for a new pair of prescription glasses (fun fact about me: I'm blind!). Anyway, while on my hunt for the perfect pair on a trip to Dallas, I had to use Google maps to find a store, since I'm not as familiar with the area as a once was!  A new little store off of Park Lane and US Highway 75 popped up.  The pictures looked amazing, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Carlen's Luxury Optical was everything it was advertised to be!  The building was beautiful and the staff was absolutely amazing... Not only did I find a great pair of frames for my new glasses, I also found the best selection of sunglasses.  Like I mentioned before, I've never been one to shop sunglasses in a store, but the amazing staff made me feel right at home.  I explained that I struggle with shopping and they were so kind!

So let's talk these babies... THEY ARE AMAZING!!!  I'm absolutely obsessed with my new Tory Burch sunglasses.  Carlen's had awesome prices (well below anything you can find online - don't worry, I checked!), so the purchase was painless.  They are so fun and fashionable and like I said before... They make this outfit!  

Now, I think I've rambled enough... Have a look at these beauties and if you decide you need a pair of your own, stop by Carlen's Optical in Dallas (right by Northpark Mall!) and mention The Novice Native sent you -- you'll get 20% OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE!!!!

 

Dallas Bound for the Byron!

Clean, crisp and stylish.  That’s what this look has going for it!

Over the past few months, I’ve fallen in love with the simplicity of neutral looks.  The blank pallet of color, in this case my white top, are classy and easy to pair with a multitude of bottoms.  The best part? They can have details that catch attention, but do so without an overwhelming presence. 

I discovered this little ensemble when shopping for an upcoming trip.  I was having trouble planning my outfits when I stumbled into a local Denver boutique: Intrigue Boutique Denver.  I was so excited because they carried reasonably priced, adorable clothing!!  I actually found two outfits that I’ll be sporting on my little trip, but you’ll have to wait for the next look.  So where am I going?

This week, I’ll be heading to Dallas to walk with my cousin, Alex Moon, as he plays in his first ever PGA tour: The Byron Nelson.  The Byron has always been my favorite golf tournament, as it was played just minutes from our house growing up.  The warm spring weather, the fun sun hats, the Club 14 bar, and the light applause that comes in waves are all memories I’ll have forever.  The fact that Alex is getting to play in it this year is beyond exciting.

Obviously the outfit I wear is going to be important!  It has to be functional, golf appropriate, and adorable… This look was all of those!  The white top is light and loose fitting, which will help keep me cool in the Texas heat.  Meanwhile, the jeans I’ve chosen to wear are cotton based, which will breathe well, and will provide cover so my white legs don’t burn!  No joke, these are my new favorite jeans.  They feel like butter they are so soft!  The colorful necklace provides a hint of color keeping the look feeling spring-like and fun.  I’ve paired that accessory with some adorable and super comfy wedges that will be easy to walk in.

I cannot wait to get home, surrounded by family, and spend some time cheering Alex on!  Be sure to follow me on Snapchat (thenovicenative) to live the experience with me.  It’s going to be the best time!

xx,

Rebecca

Treat Me Like Royalty, My Advanced Spa!

I’m really picky when it comes to spas.  I’m sure everyone knows what I mean when I say I don’t want to be treated like an object on an assembly line... So when I find a place that treats me like a princess and an important individual-- I want to share it with the world!
