#ootd. | mirrored. sunnies.

Over the years, I’ve become quite the enthusiast for playful sunglasses. Just as handbags, shoes and accessories have the power to set the tone for any given look, the right sunnies can make all the difference between a blasé outfit and one that demands attention. Can you say instant game-changer?! Whereas I used to solely gravitate toward black oversized shades, I’ve learned to broaden my repertoire to include retro cat eye styles, aviators and anything that reads boho-chic. Oh, and I especially have a soft spot for tortoiseshell frames and mirrored lenses. 

Come the spring/summer months, I always like to invest in a budget-friendly pair and sometimes one that’s a little more splurge-worthy. During a recent trip to Nordstrom, I stumbled upon the perfect oversized mirrored sunnies in the juniors’ section. At only $12, I couldn’t not snag them. Major bonus: They’re totally reminiscent of this tortoiseshell pair by Illesteva — obviously not as high quality, but still a great steal if you want to try out a new look before investing in the real deal.

I’ve already worn my new shades on a few occasions and I love how they can be styled with pretty much anything. Last week, I paired mine with a striped silk peplum top and black jeans for an effortless daytime casual look. It’s safe to say that I’m already looking forward to transitioning them for summer with a LBD or some colorful chino shorts and classic stripes.

  1. I love your outfit and your mirrored sunnies! I am starting to grow a sunglasses addiction - it's so fun to play around with different styles. The mirrored look is totally bad ass if you ask me!
