Abby Talks Accessories: Sunglasses

If you're a regular GJU reader, you know that my friend Abby knows her accessories. She's a connoisseur of all things fabulous, and I'm so lucky that she will be sharing her expertise with us every month!

If her missed her last post on wrist candy- no worries. You can find it right here.

As summer quickly approaches, spending time in the sunshine is top of mind. One of the most important accessories that accompanies the season of outdoor loving are your shades. I am a huge fan of protecting my eyes in a stylish manner, so I own several pairs of sunglasses. Per my latest blog, Harper’s Bazaar noted that “Funnie Sunnies” were a 2012 accessory trend, and while I don’t tend to venture too far out, I do have some fab glasses to choose from.

First and foremost, it’s no secret how much I love Michael Kors. I bought this pair of aviators on my first visit to Los Angeles and have rocked them on most days since. (Sorry for the bad iPhone photo… I didn’t have a lot of options)

As much as I love my Michael Kors aviators, you can’t pass up on the originals. My titanium Ray Ban aviators are easily my most comfortable pair of sunnies.

While I prefer the real thing, during a recent trip to Mexico, my girlfriends and I purchased these fake Ray Bans for $10, and I love my Kentucky blue’s.

Like any accessory, you always have to have your back ups. Thanks to Target, I have a couple of other options to choose from that are affordable and adorable.

Fake Colored Ray Bans: $10 Beach Vendor in Mexico

Target Options: $12 at your local Target

How do you keep your eyes safe and stylish during the summer? Let me know @AbbyDraper.

  1. Sunglasses are definitely one of my weaknesses. I have (gulp) five pairs right now. Some of my favorites I have scored at Loehmann's or Saks Outlet for a fraction of regular price.
