Daily Covet: Collection of Sunnies

As mentioned in many previous posts, I love sunglasses!

Not just because my poor sensitive eyes have to wear them rain or shine, but because I love how they can show off a totally different you just by changing them up.

I tend to get attached to one certain pair, but I love the thought of matching my sunglasses to my outfit – just as I would with my shoes.

So what eyewear would I like to add to my collection?

Here’s a roundup of some of my absolute favorite styles…

Daily Covet: Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses

I’ve always been a sucker for great sunglasses.

Maybe that’s because I absolutely have to wear them, rain or shine.

Yep, you read that right. It seems my eyes are especially sensitive to a gray day and start to water at the first unprotected glance of a cloudy sky.

So I am all about these Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses. I love the golden tortoise frames and the round lenses. I also love that they are so different from my usual cat’s eye or wrap around options.

There’s just something so Mr. Ripley about them…

Daily Covet: Chunky Cat Eye Sunglasses

So I was digging up pictures of hot Hollywood short-hair dos when I ran across this picture of Charlize Theron in the most fabulous sunglasses EVER!

Nevermind that I have a girl crush on this flawless woman, who happens to also have great style.  Seriously, who can make a gray scarf look that good?  But I digress…

I searched high and low for the maker of these sunglasses and then asked my super, search-happy friend to do the same.  Of course, it took her 3.2 seconds to find them.

Linda Farrow Chunky Cat Eye Glasses.  I’ve found them.  Now to buy them.

What?  They are $625?!

Soooo, onto the “Daily Covet” they go… sigh.

Daily Covet: Prada Round-Framed Sunglasses

Prada has always been the epitome of cool, classic and elegant.

These Prada sunglasses are no exception with their retro-feel lenses and sophisticated black frames.

Sadly, the lense shape of these sunglasses aren’t the most flattering on my face.  But I adore the swirly design at the temples.  If you ask me, they are a work of art too!

What do you think?  Too cool or too bad?

Back to School

I’m sending my first born to school in 6 days.
He’s excited.  I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day.  He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate.  my Tomas the Train enthusiast.  my personal shopper.  my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!

Daily Covet: Trina Turk for Banana Republic swirl tunic dress

A Trina Turk tunic dress.  That just says summer, oversized sunnies and maybe even lunch in L.A. to me.

And since orange and pink is one of my most favorite color combinations (Don’t believe me? See here!), this tunic dress immediately caught my eye.

Shopping, lunching, not wanting to wear your little black sweats the 5th day in a row… just sayin’… this tunic dress has it all!  And it has a lightweight, cotton construction for comfort with a silk blend that will dress it up a smidge.

Daily Covet: Chloé Ornate Aviator Frames

Yesterday, it was over 70 degrees here in middle America.  I actually used sunscreen on my face, and those of my kiddos, as well.  I wore my sunglasses for bright sun, instead of for dreary gray. (It makes my eyes water almost more than sun does!)

But today, the temperature – a balmy 61 when I got up at 8 a.m. – is now 48.  Winds and gray skies are ever present, and I’m feeling the need for another pair of sunglasses, without the heavy, tortoise frames and super black lenses.

These Chloé Aviator frames are so cool with their subtle, purple-hued lenses – perfect for blocking out the UV that bugs my eyes, not the sun.  They also have unique and trés cool, lightweight frames perfect for a day like today.

Can I justify another pair of expensive sunglasses.   Silly question, right?!
