the new golden standard | randolph sunglasses and a weekend escape to the outer banks

There’s something about salty air and sandy skin that cures the soul. And something about summer that makes the soul long for endless days and star filled nights. It’s not just the sun. Not just the waves crashing on the shoreline. It’s the feeling. The feeling of freedom. The feeling of hope. It’s all of our favorite parts of the season that create a new summer story year after year. Amidst this year’s craziness, we were finally able to experience our first taste on Ocracoke Island, Outer Banks. photography:JOEL CORSON | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sunglasses:c/o:RANDOLPH While I could muse endlessly about the remote shoreline, marina culture, and quaint but charming setting, today’s topic at hand is on one of summer’s most quintessential accessories – sunnies. Like a new bikini and vacation hoodie, sunglasses are an essential we find ourselves browsing for at the first sign of warmer weather. I was introduced to Randolph sunglasses just a few short weeks prior to our escape, and of course – decided the early summer holiday couldn’t begin …

While fashion selects are often redefined each season, one must never forget to keep their underthings in order. There’s something empowering in being completely put together. For me, that starts from body to soul, and each layer that we choose to dress ourselves in. In this b.tempt’d review, I will touch on an assortment of essential pieces that I’ve integrated into my lingerie collection, and how each serves a different purpose in my personal and professional lifestyle.
