Summer Sunglasses

Sunglasses are incredibly important not only in the summer but all year round. The damage that UV rays can cause to our eyes is quite serious. If you take the time to lather on sunscreen in the morning than you should take the same care when it comes to your eyes. I had always purchased cheap sunglasses, the most inexpensive costing around $5 but if your sunglasses don't providee UV protection there is really no point in wearing them (you could infact be doing more harm than good). I realized if I was taking the time take care of my skin I should probably take care of my eyes too. (I do like to see, ya know?)


I've sort of jumped back on the Polyvore bandwagon after a very long absence (sometimes overuse means you need a break) and decided to create an outfit (or two) for some of my favourite (that I don't actually own) sunglasses. Floral shorts have a bit of a vintage feel to them which is how I view the Ray Ban Wayfarer. And nothing says classic to me more than a great aviator so I paired it with a classic stripes and black skinnies look.

Vintage vs Classic - which one is more you?


  1. I think they're both me...but at this current moment I'd say the Wayfarers look :)

  2. For some reason I have become obsessed with sunglasses lately. I am DYING for a pair of cat eye ones and I found a pair I'm drooling over on but they are almost $500!!!! I did recently buy a pair of two toned Jackie-O style ones from Kate Spade. I like ones that cover a majority of my face, HAHA!

  3. Both outfits are appealing. I've found sunnies to be a difficult fashion item. What I think will look good doesn't and I haven't found a style that works for me. In addition to the health benefit you mention, they can transform the appearance of our face (which I'd like) but I lack the judgment on what to pick. I wish you could go shopping with me!

  4. I wouldn't be able to live without big shades in the summer. It's too bright outside!

  5. I usually wear vintage-inspired shades, but I've been stealing John's Clubmasters lately, and I love 'em!
