Sunglasses for the Day (&Night!)

Montreal was near 80℉ today! and all that amazing time in the sun and blue skies weather meant one thing… SUNGLASSES!

(I’ll never call them sunnies… suns, maybe?)

okay, okay so wearing sunglasses isn’t specific to the Summer (which is what is felt like today! Montreal is expecting snow on Monday though so don’t get too jealous, we didn’t actually skip Spring) BUT Spring/Summer sunglasses mean it’s time for more than just your functional on a bright snowy day pair… aka VARIETY

I’m a BIG supporter of variety … and this time around I’ve made a checklist (including some black cat eyes, red wayfarers, green lens, gold frame aviators…)

The biggest piece of advice I can give for everyone who wants to build a suns collection is:  don’t obsess over brand, obsess over sun protection (go for the 100% UVA/UVB pair) and you’d be surprised how many cute pairs for $12-$16 there are at Target! (even scan the racks at your local CVS/Pharmacy…you never know!

Also, try them on – and buy the ones that fit your face the best, not the ones that necessarily look great on your favorite actor. If you feel great in them, you’ll look great wearing them!

And finally, take a risk! (try on the ones you’d never consider buying, could look great on!)
