My Favorite Pairs of Sunglasses

I’m an accessory girl through and through and sunglasses are no exception. Whether you’re a tired mom who needs a little help or simply looking to elevate a simple jeans and a tee, a good pair of sunglasses makes it so much easier. And when I say “a good pair of sunglasses,” that certainly doesn’t mean they have to cost $400.

My Favorite Pairs of Sunglasses

I like sunglasses that are a bit on the larger side and I never ever like my eyebrows showing. While others can pull it off, it’s not a good look on me (and trust me, I’ve tried). Those tiny little Hallie Bieber glasses – beautiful on her and some others, but not on me.

In the case of the above (and below) Le Specs Air Heart sunglasses, I love them so much that I own all three colors: black, tortoise and khaki. They’re reasonably priced at $69 and a pair I always get compliments on, no matter which color I’m wearing.

Celine Tilda

Next up on the list are my Celine Tilda pair. If I had to pick one signature pair, these would be them. Unfortunately, the Tilda pair is discontinued and pretty hard to find, but the Amazon dupe is pretty great in terms of how they look on. I have two of the Amazon pairs and quite honestly, I cannot remember (or tell) which pair I’m wearing in the above and below photos, the actual Tilda’s or the Amazon version. If you’re looking for a pair that reads glamour, but that cost less than your lunch, highly recommend these.

Le Specs

Another favorite from Le Specs are these aviators. For my personal sunglasses selection, I find that an aviator pair is a must. Some days and outfits call for something cool and a little less oversized and dramatic. These fit that bill perfectly and I prefer them more than the RayBan aviator style.

Colors in Optics

My other favorite brand for sunglasses is Colors in Optics. They have such a beautiful assortment of sunglasses, styles that are classic and a little funkier and I’ve been lucky enough to partner with them on several occasions. They’re the nicest, family-owned company and have been in the business for decades, so they really know what they’re doing.  Some of my favorites include the above ‘Victoria’ pair and the below Beekman pair (that are currently on sale for $49.50), but  it’s hard to narrow down my ultimate favorites. Right now, they’re having a site wide Mother’s Day sale and all frames are 20% off with the code MOTHERSDAY21.
