With the welcome rainy weather in San Diego, I’ve finally been able to break out my cozy wool & cashmere sweaters! There have been some great detailed sweaters out there and I am loving them. Here are some of my favorites for the chilly weather & a few lighter weight sweaters for spring. (Read here for a brief history on the Sweater…)

Happy Friday, friends! Today’s Featured Friday finds a local San Diego brand, Solo Eyewear out and about for a fun interview on their business and brand. Join us to find out more about Solo Eyewear, won’t you?
Remember the neutrals post from a few weeks ago? I featured Solo Eyewear, also sold at Vocabulary Boutique, with my look and I have to tell you, I fell in love with them. They’re a little bit chic and a little bit causal all wrapped up into one awesome brand with a great purpose. Each time you purchase a pair of Solos, someone in need gets their eye care funded. What a great cause! (Check out a little more about their Mission To Give.)
This week, I interviewed Jenny & Dana of Solo Eyewear to get a glimpse into their brand & business practices. Without further adieu, here is our interview:
Art in the Find: What makes your brand & company unique?
Jenny & Dana from Solo: Several things make SOLO Eyewear unique.
- Our glasses fund eye care for people in need.
- We use recycled bamboo to construct the temples of our glasses.
- We work with local artists to provide customers with a one of a kind, hand-painted line of SOLOs.
- We are women owned.
- We work with a group of female artisans in Guatemala to construct our sunglasses bags and cords. We do so in an effort to help lift them and their families out of poverty

Leggings. Something I cannot live without during the winter season. I was chatting with a client yesterday and mentioned that leggings are in my bi-weekly closet rotation. You can wear them with boots, flats, booties, sweaters, pull over tops, you name it. Causal or dressed up. Leggings are a very versatile piece.
When you find the right pair of leggings, they can be your best friend. When you purchase a cheap pair, not so much….You can find a great pair of leggings at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, or even Ann Taylor Loft for around $25.00 (on sale) to $60.00.
Here are my recommendations for a great pair of leggings:
- Durable material: Make sure you’re not trudging around town in yoga pants and calling them “leggings”. Leggings should be fairly durable. Meaning, before you buy a pair, stick your hand in them and stretch them out. If you can see through them, pass. (Or only wear them indoors or at yoga…) Give a little tug on the seams of the leggings. Again, if you can’t see through them, you’re golden!
- Structure & Detail: Similar to durability, some structure in the pant is a good thing. If they have a slight pattern to them, or maybe they have zippers at the seam near the ankle, or faux leather trim, those details add structure, which is a good thing.
- Fitted on the bottom, Loose on the top: When you wear leggings, keep in mind that they are fitted and usually a bit snug. When picking out tops, think loose. A button-down blouse or popover sweater that covers you down to the middle of your hips is a great pairing.
Do you have a favorite legging brand? What is it? Would love to hear your comments. For more style inspiration shop at Art in the Find’s shop and follow Art in the Find on Instagram & Pinterest.
