Blog Swap: City Style with Tamra of Walks With Bella

Today I'm excited to be swapping blogs with Tamra of Walks With Bella.  She is a fellow/former Texan and newlywed living the urban life in NYC, and we thought it would be fun to do a city themed swap showcasing style from New York and Dallas.  She has amazing style, and I love following her blog for a glimpse of what life could be if I were to have followed my teenage dreams and moved to the city.  You can check me out over on her blog today, and we hope you enjoy our series!

Big D - Big Thank you to Haley for having me over!  I was born and raised in Texas, but Manhattan is now my home.  I actually used to live in Dallas prior to NYC, so Haley and I have a love for the south in common.   NYC and Dallas are far from alike, so we thought a city blog swap would be fitting.  I hope you enjoy my summer peak into Soho chic.  

1.  The Perfect Shade of Sunnies
Sunglasses are essential for protecting our eyes against harmful rays and delaying the onset of crows' feet.  In the city, sunglasses are our shield for privacy and style accessory necessity.  I'm loving the cat-eye and acetate trend and recently fell in love with Nicole Richie's House of Harlow sunglass collection.
2.  City Sandals 
In a city where walking is the primary source of transportation, it is absolutely imperative to have good shoes.  Yes, style is always #1, but if you can't walk at least 10 blocks in them, they probably aren't worth it.   Whether a fabulous flat, wicked wedge or a high-rise heel; make sure you can tip-toe on those cobblestones.

 3.  Weekend Escapes
On Friday afternoons, Manhattanites around the city escape to the beach for the weekend.  In New York, every bag, accessory is a style statement even your beach and weekenders.  Stay in trend on your travels with some beach bags and overnight carry-ons like these!

Hope you enjoyed my summer Soho picks.  These picks are all over the price map, but I like to use them as inspiration for shopping, so even if they are not affordable, I will find the equivalent!  Haley, thank you again for letting my stop by.  I look forward to you visiting New York in I hope the sometime near future.  Big Howdy to all my DFW besties' out there!  See you this summer.  In the meantime, visit me at walkswithBella.
xoxo- tamra
