Summer Swagger

Well summer has finally arrived & that means I’m hoppin’ on the PJ & heading to the Amalfi Coast for a little R&R, hope you all have a fabulous summer!  Hahaha, not quite but it does bring to mind one of my favorite accessories- sunglasses!  It is now officially their time in the sun (sorry but I couldn’t resist the pun ;)  Any good decorator knows that the two items that give the most bang for the buck are paint & wallpaper.  For little expense you can completely transform a space with a few gallons of paint & if your budget is a little more generous there are phenomenal wallpaper options for adding color, pattern & texture.  I think of sunglasses as the paint & wallpaper of fashion.  They can transform your whole look for the least expense & unlike an outfit you can wear them everyday.  Whether your budget can sustain a few designer pairs or the super affordable & stylish options from places such as H&M or Target get on out there & start workin' on your summer swagger!  These are my standbys but I’m always on the lookout for fun, new styles:

Dolce & Gabbana black oversized - think classic Jackie O. - everyone looks like a movie star in these!

Chloé light brown oversized - these have a very vintage & feminine look & the lighter colored frames work especially well with fair coloring. 

Ray Ban aviators in silver & gold - classic style, great for more casual looks.

& if you're feeling a little flashy these Cole Haan gold aviators will do just the trick!
