you scream, I steam, we all want egg cream

Basically an outfit of all my favorite "no-brainer" items at the moment. These Ray-Ban sunglasses have quickly taken the place of my Marc by Marc Jacobs pair as my preferred cat eye. I have a small face so finding an exaggerated sunglass shape that doesn't make my head look like that of a small child's is always a challenge. These babies fit the bill.

And with that great thought, I am mentally checking out for the weekend. Hope you all enjoy yours!

Ray-Ban sunglasses (c/o ShadesDaddy)
vintage necklace (similar here)
thrifted sweater
ASOS shorts
Jean Michel Cazabat pumps
Chanel purse

PS I'm (finally) Instagrammin'. Find me at @districtofchic.

I have the same problems with sunglasses but I recently got the Taylor Cat Eye sunglasses by Elizabeth and James and they are the perfect size.

Hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend.
