Confession: I Have a Sunglasses Fetish

It’s true, it’s true, it’s true.
I have always loved buying new sunglasses and aim to buy a new pair at least once a year.
If I could, I would invest in a new pair once a month but since that’s not very (financially) realistic, once a year it is.  I’ve literally had this fetish since birth, I think, and feel an abnormal amount of excitement once I’ve made my annual purchase… which usually happens towards the end of spring, just in time for the sunny summertime heat!This past week, I bit the bullet and found a new pair of sunnies that are to die!  I try to switch up the type of style I go for from year to year and for some reason, this time around I knew that I wanted a shiny gold-rimmed pair to sport on the daily… and that’s exactly what I got!  Don’t worry though, you’ll continue to see me wearing my preferred pairs from years past, because even though they may not be brand-spanking new anymore, you better believe that I still adore each one more than the next.

Now, I recognize that not all sunnies are going to look good on every face shape, so use these styles as a starting point before heading to the stores and trying them on for yourself!
I obviously favor over-sized frames but coming from someone with a tiny head and an uber round face, I know first hand that trying them on is literally the MOST important thing you can do before spending your hard-earned money on a nice pair of (designer) sunglasses.

And just in case you were wondering what my new pair look like, take a look at this snapshot my hubby took of me when I came home with them on Wednesday…kind of obsessed!
(please excuse the ridiculous look on my face #thankyouverymuch)

What sunglasses are you planning to live in this summer?
