Saturday miscellany: new sunglasses, pupdate & more

28 total views

It’s been a few years since I’ve purchased a new pair of sunglasses. I usually have Transitions lenses added to my regular glasses, but they don’t always get as dark as I’d like for bright days.

Susan B. wears See Eyewear sunglasses, a green print blouse, holds dog Bella. More at une femme d'un certain age.

I’ve been on the hunt for a few weeks, and finally made it over to SEE Eyewear, where I spotted these. I am delighted with them! This is a new style, and available in 5 color combinations. SEE Eyewear has a great selection of unique, non-generic styles, and their prices aren’t astronomical. They also have a loyalty program: buy 5 pairs, get the 6th free. This isn’t a sponsored post; I’m just a huge fan of this brand!

As you can see above, my natural hair color has almost completely grown out. I’m very happy with it! There are just a few random ends that still have a little color, and they’ll probably be gone after the next haircut or two.

Bella update

Susan B. wears a green blouse, jeans, and gold loafers, sits on garden steps with dog Bella.

We had our first session with a trainer yesterday, and Bella did so well! We’re working with her to be less excitable and reactive to other dogs while out on the leash. After just an hour of work, she was much calmer and more responsive. And she was pretty tuckered out the rest of the afternoon, enough even to hold still for photos!

I purchased this shirt while in London in February. It’s from Spanish brand SIYU. I’ve had these jeans for several seasons now. The shoes are from my favorite Clergerie, and exclusive to MYTHERESA. They run about 1/2 size large. That open weave makes them very comfortable to wear even on very warm days.

Sale updates

I promise not to bombard you with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content, but did want to follow up with a couple of things.

Caslon cotton utility jacket rust

I’ve had a chance to check out this jacket in person, and the “spice” color is definitely in the Autumn palette, an almost perfect match for Autumn’s “Rust.” It runs true-to-size; the Small fit me very well. I’m not keeping this color, but have ordered the “Peacoat” color to try, which usually matches my Spring navy.

Eileen Fisher ribbed boatneck merino sweater in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

This little ribbed merino sweater from Eileen Fisher is really good! Looks better in person than online, and it’s lightweight enough to pack for travel. This “Marine” color above should work for you Winters, the “Clear Water” for Summers, and the “Sea Green” for Springs and Autumns.

It has a lovely drape, and a refined look. I’m usually an XS in Eileen Fisher, but liked the fit of the XXS in this one. (Plus HERE.)

Talbots classic denim jacket in red on sale.

Meanwhile, over at Talbot’s, I ordered this jacket in the Cantaloupe color (which now seems to be mostly sold out) and am very impressed with it! A nice fit, and lightweight stretchy fabric. This red color is still available in most Misses & Petite sizes, and is an additional 40% off the sale price.

Talbot's ruffle denim jacket in jade green.

Summers, both colors of this jacket are for you! It’s available in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Plus Petite sizes, and is also an additional 40% off the sale price.
