This was the sight of the room of my floor as I was spot cleaning a couple of areas in my room. From your view, it may be tough to count, but I have 61 pairs of sunglasses. This shouldn’t be such a surprise since eye wear accessories made the top two of my 10 Essentials. I don’t understand my obsession, but I definitely love the way a great pair of shades makes me feel. It’s a mix between complete invisibility and arrogance.
I’m taking it a bit hard that summer is drawing to a close. All of my favorite stores are swapping out my favorite summer accessory for jackets and scarves. Even though there have been gray clouds and rain for the past two weeks, I’m desperate to hold onto the sunny weather that let’s me bust out any one of these beauties you see above. As parents prepare their for kids school and fashionistas putting together their winter wardrobes, I would like to take this time to remember the sunglasses of 2013 that made it one of the best summers EVER!
The 30+ pair that I added to my collection helped shape my summer style. It was my mission to make an impression with every outfit and as the last thing I grabbed before walking out the door. Sunglasses quickly became a bold statement for my summer fashion. Here are a couple of favorites from my collection:
Always a staple piece in any wardrobe, my black wayfarers was my go to pair when I wanted to say “I’m cool!”.
Mirror frames became an unexpected favorite for me this summer. I started off thinking they were overly obnoxious. While I’ve changed my mind about wearing them, I still describe them as obnoxious but in a way that is totally charming!
Keyhole frames have quickly risen as a way to separate yourself from the rest of the pack. With a design that isn’t like anything out there, this is pair of sunglasses I love to wear when I’m feeling a little quirky!
I rarely wear black, so I needed a pair of sunglasses to go with all of the tans and browns in my closet. These leopard print frames are definitely clutch when no other pair will do.
If someone absolutely forced me to pick a favorite pair of sunglasses, these would be it. This is the first pair I owned that made me feel simply Cooooooooooool.
In elevating my style, my faux frames have put in the most work to really help me define my style. Of course they would be top of the class, this is the go to accessory for my fashion alter ego.
The class of 2013 are some characters through and through. Like their owner, they don’t know how to act, but they definitely know how to impress.
