365: Eye Candy

images: sunglasshut.com

I loooove sunglasses and since moving to Florida a few years ago I never leave the house without them. Let's just say the moment I think the sun is about to rise they are drawn to my face like a magnet. The best part about them is you can wear them all the time because the sun comes out every single day. With that said, I currently have a little collection for use with contacts and my go to pair with that magical prescription so I can see far far away.

I am however currently in need of a new pair and after looking through numerous styles have my eyes set on these Tory Burch sunglasses and although I'm not sure what color to get them in (leaning towards the blue) one thing for sure is they will not be in black. I'm ready for some color in eye-wear.. they are an accessory after all.

I find myself enjoying the retro styles and wouldn't mind getting one of each of the above pairs.What kind of sunglasses are you currently lovin' and are you thinking about color also?

Helpfull Tip:
When buying glasses you will notice they all have three sets of numbers: 55/14/135
The first set (55) is the distance of one lense, the second set (14) is the measurement of the bridge and the last set of numbers (135) is the length of the arm. So if you currently have a pair that fit you nicely you can get an idea if the new pair you are thinking of buying will fit just as nice.

I have a SICK addiction to Ray-Ban aviators, but I think I might have to pick up some wayfarers this summer as well!

Omg. thank you SO much for that sunglasses tip. I always manage to find the cutest glasses, but my ridiculous blunt bridge makes it difficult to find cute glasses that actually fit well. Am currently loving Ray-bans, but those Tory Burch cat eyes are freakin' adorable.
