Shades of Summer

Hello bebes!

As the summer begins to heat up, I always seem to find myself searching for the perfect pair of sunnies. Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, {because your eyes can get sun damage too, not just your skin!} but they're the perfect accessory to a chic outfit.

This year, every major designer has come up with his or her own take on traditional styles, most of them a retro throwback to the cat's eye sunnies of the 50s or the round frames of the 70s. Whatever your preference, one thing is for sure: bold is big. Don't be afraid to try out shapes you normally wouldn't wear - it's all part of the fun!



If these {or their price tags} don't strike your fancy, keep in mind there a plenty of inexpensive retro sunnies out there. 


I picked up {this pair} from Forever 21 a few days ago for only $5.80. And because they're cheapies, I don't have to worry about breaking them when I throw them in my beach bag!


I feel like a diva when I wear them. Or maybe a bug.
Just call me #divabug

That's all for today folks. Happy weekend! :)

Love, Cait

  1. I love those Kate Spade ones but not the price for sure!! The ones you got are super cute and no one would know you got them for so cheap. I am rough on sunglasses so that is one thing I never splurge on!

  2. I love the one's you chose...especially the price! My favorite sunglasses, no matter how many different pairs I have, are my Lilly one's. They fit my big head best! ha!

  4. Those sunglasses are fantastic - it's nice to be able to not have to worry so much about them breaking, popping them in their case and if you're using the special cloth to clean them off. Such a headache :)
