Favorite finds this week on etsy

Its right around 60 degrees outside and if you are a Seattleite that means that Spring is here and Summer is on its way.  After doing some preparations for this glorious summer in the back yard, I decided to take a break with a little glass of homemade limoncello and etsy.  Great combo by the way.

Here are some of my favorite finds from etsy this week.  There are many more of my favorites to take up your afternoon shopping.  Don't for get to check out my favorite things from all over the web on my Pinterest boards too.

Happy shopping on this beautiful Friday afternoon.

Feature: Bonobos Spring Suit Collection

We have all seen it, a cherry blossom here, outdoor seating there, and a brave soul sporting a crop top.  Spring is here and with that wedding season is just around the corner.  It is time to start transitioning your wardrobe and preparing for the inevitable cross-country plane ticket to your of-course-I'm-coming friend's wedding.  And while I can't help with the obligatory dancing, I can make sure you'll look good doing it.

Bonobos recently launched their Spring suit collection using lightweight italian wool, breathable cotton, and Tollegno linen letting you cool off before the social pressure is on.

I've included links to my favorites for wedding season.  If you're looking to give the groomsmen a bit of a boost then check out Groomservice and help them find the perfect attire.

colorful bowties complete the look

I personally am loving the seersucker suit. 


Don't forget your shirt



If you're one to accessorize

Hope you enjoy!

Feature: Warby Parker + Architecture for Humanity

When I was asked to look at Warby Parker's newest additions I thought, Awesome!  they have great stuff!  (Apparently my inner voice is not that eloquent.)  And then I realized that I had never personally visited their site, so where does that reaction come from?  Everywhere, my friends wearing their new frames out on our lunch date, or my co-workers asking "which ones make my face look thinner?", or "oh my glasses are here!" (that second one happened last Friday).   Ok, you have this 20/20 girl's attention.

In celebration of Architecture for Humanity's 15th anniversary Warby Parker is releasing two new frames.  Continuing their focus on giving back they will be donating a portion of every pair sold, and as aways, for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

Meet Alisin & Fowler


Alisin in English Oak
also comes in Oak Barrel which is a bit darker richer brown.  
I love the color contrast in the frame, unexpected yet versatile.


Fowler in Jet Silver

You make me want a prescription.  Check out the new spring eyeglasses and sunglasses and see where style and quality meet affordability.  And if you are still on the fence, here is some inspiration that shows that fashion and eyeglasses are synonymous.
