Spring Eyewear.

Best Blogger Tips


Spring is in the air (kinda!) and with that comes the sun... I have always been a huge fan of sunglasses. I seem to have collected a variety of different pairs throughout the years. So, by special request from my best friend, here is a post dedicated to one of my favorite accessories: sunglasses.


The trend in sunglasses for spring are plastic, colored frames. I'm loving this because they add color to any outfit. A few of my favorites:

House of Harlow 1960 - Nicole $125

Karen Walker - Rover $180


Marc by Marc Jacobs - Oversized $98


Mosley Tribes - Hayes Aviator $210

Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony - Flared Daring $365

Not into the colored, flashy frames? Stick to the classics. Some gorgeous spring sunglasses:


Oliver Peoples - Daddy B $325

Tory Burch - Logo Aviator $149

Phillip Lim - Dwayne $225

Carrera - Andy $98

Or you could always go for my all-time favorite, Ray-bans:

NEW RELEASE Ray-bans - RB147 $129

NEW RELEASE Ray-bans - RB8307  $189

Original Wayfarer - RB2140 $145

Classic Aviator - RB3044 $99

And finally, for some more affordable ways to either wear the trends or stick to the classics:

Aldo - $12

Forever21 - $5.80

Forever21 - $5.80


Charlotte Russe - $5.00

Some fun facts:

  • Sunglasses were first used in China as tinting for judges in court to conceal their eyes
  • Ray-ban invited the anti-glare aviator in 1936
  • Sunglasses became fashionable in the 1960's in an ad campaign for Foster Grant, a comb and glass firm

What are your favorites? Do you love sunglasses as much as I do?

    You know I'm a dedicated Ray-Ban fan.... however, the Carrera 'Andy' sounds like they are just meant to be!

    Love lots,

  13. I cant help but be a teensy bit jealous when I read posts like this... I wear glasses which means I'm limited to my prescription sunglasses (to be fair the styles available these days are great but the variety is never gonna be what I'd like) or I can wear contacts with regular sunglasses, always kinda irritating! :)

    I think the Tory Burch - Logo Aviator glasses are amazing. Simple, elegant yet still absolutely lovely ♥

  16. Oh, these are all so FABULOUS!! I cannot wait to go sunglasses shopping when I get a little more money. :) I actually just took my boyfriend to Nordstrom last week and convinced him to buy a pair of spectacular Ray-Bans! It was his first time spending more than $100 on a fashion item. LOL! Wait, am I a bad influence? ;)

  17. Love your choices! I can't wait for spring since the sun has been pretty much non-existant in the past couple of days in Montreal. Great blog:)
