Summer Sunglasses

Once I find a favorite pair of sunglasses, I tend to become pretty loyal to them.  My Ray Ban aviators definitely have gotten the most wear out of all the frames I’ve collected, but I’ve embraced that sunglasses can be an inexpensive way to freshen up an old outfit and that you can really have some fun with frames and styles.  Since I’m sitting around a lot these days anyway, I’m taking advantage of the nicer weather and try to spend as much time as possible outside in our backyard so sunglasses are essential.  I figured I’d share my three current favorite styles for facing the summer sun.

• Vintage-Style Circles:  A round sunglass frame that carries with it a vintage-style appeal that to mean feels a little more carefree and glamorous.

• Tinted Mirrored Lens:  Though I’ve picked up black frames in the past, I usually try to avoid them since they’re not all that flattering with my fairer skin tone and hair.  This pair seems to be one of the rare exceptions, and I think that has a lot to do with the blue tinted hue of the lens.  They add an instant pop of color to any outfit and do well to hide the eyes.  Plus they’re fun without being too over-the-top.

• Retro Wingtip: I’ve recently fallen hard for wingtip shaped sunglasses since the more pronounced, cat-eye flared glasses just don’t work for me.  The wingtip style has a slightly rectangle, slightly rounded style that gives them a softened shape, they’re less exaggerated and more complimentary on almost every face shape, and while they work well in other colors, I personally think brown tortoise toned sunglasses are the most universally flattering.  They’re classic and go with anything.

Summer Book Club

Since I’ve been resigned to staying off my feet these last few weeks, there’s only so many activities that can be accomplished with your leg propped up and only so many hours of Netflix a person can reasonably handle.  I’ve done some crafty projects like painting, some work from the laptop, and logged a lot of hours of puppy cuddles, but mostly I’ve been reading — a lot of reading.  (Which has also been a really good excuse to break in these super cute frames.)  And since summer is the perfect time to spend a lazy afternoon curled up with a good book by the pool or beach, I thought I’d start sharing some of the books I’ve finished recently that might be perfect to add to your summer tote.

Dangerous Girls (Abigail Haas)

A group of privileged teens head to Aruba for spring break and things turn deadly.  Some of it feels ripped from the headlines, but mostly it’s just a fun thriller.

Paper Towns (John Green)

If you’re one of those who likes to read the book before the movie (guilty), you’ll want to read this one before the Cara Delevingne starring summer release hits theaters.  It’s worth it, trust me.

I tried to keep things going over here on RF as close to business as usual as I could, but I’ve had to accept I need to kick off my heels and change things up a bit until I’m back up and walking.  After all, a torn meniscus and standing around for outfit posts don’t really mix.  With surgery less than a week away (eek!) you’ll be noticing some new post styles while still incorporating a bit of outfit inspiration mixed in.  I may not be leaving the house as much, but a girl’s still gotta feel good in what she’s wearing, and sweatpants just don’t cut it.  So stick around and see what’s new.  Change can be a good thing!
