Hey everyone! Long time, no blog! I feel like I have to re-introduce myself it’s been so long. Between work and travel this summer has been a bit of a whirlwind but I have to say it’s been one of the best ones yet! I do have a ton of new content coming your way though so I really do appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime!
I celebrated my 28th birthday in July and one thing I’ve learned in my “old age” is that when it comes to clothing and accessories, quality trumps quantity. With fast fashion brands ruling the roost these days it’s so easy to get sucked in to all the buy now trends, and I’ll be the first to admit I’m one of them! I’m not saying I’ll never shop at Forever 21 again, my crop top is from there and I personally think it’s pretty cute. But moving forward I’ve been more mindful on where my money is going and the pieces I invest in. That said, lets talk sunglasses!
A great pair of sunnies is an accessory I haven’t been shy about investing in. I remember my dad bought me my first pair of designer sunglasses (they were Gucci, and ridiculously over the top!) and from then on I’ve always set money aside to purchase quality pairs. It’s not because I’m looking to show off the label, but because the quality of the frames and the lenses is always a zillion times better. Yep that’s right, not even a million, a zillion! I also find that I grab a few of the same pairs over and over again when I’m putting together my outfits. Which is why it just makes more sense for me to buy 3 great pairs instead of 20 cheap ones that will probably break in the bottom of my bag.
I recently received a pair of Carrera sunglasses and wow, the lenses are so crisp and clear! I did a little test and threw on a pair of cheapies from Urban Outfitters and compared them to the Carrera’s; the difference was insane. I’m sure you get the picture but it was just a great reminder that you can’t beat quality and that some pieces, like a good pair of sunglasses, are worth the investment…
What’s something in your closet that you’ve invested in??
