New Shades.. but what to pick!

Sunglasses. I can't live without them. The fact that I need prescription sunglasses makes it even more challenging. But, I guess the upside to that is that I don't lose them - unlike my husband who is a chronic sunglasses misplacer. It doesn't matter if they were free or $300. He will lose them within 3 weeks. That's why the only glasses he wears now were free. See below c/o Yasso Yogurt. Grace's incidentally are from Osh Kosh and somehow a 3 yr old has managed to keep them for 1 yr +.

 So my point? Ahhh prescription sunglasses, my current pair is straight from the Optometrist and about 3 years old. Ancient by sunglasses standards and now all scratched up thanks to a toddler with an obsession for getting her hand on them. They were also covered by my VSP plan so there's that. But this year I already spent my VSP allowance on some pretty little Dior frames so what now? Pay full retail optometrist prices? Um no thanks! Instead, I'm going to check out my friends at Warby Parker. And full disclosure on the affilate disclosure? I actually became an affiliate for them after my first purchase of regular frames a few years ago because I loved the brand and the process of going through them instead of my optometrist. Listen, I'll take a VSP allowance every 2 years, but if I didn't have access to that it would be Warby Parker all the way!

Now the search for the perfect pair... Don't think you can just pick a pair online? No worries, their At Home Try-On is so easy even I can handle it! (I hate ordering things and sending them back - fyi)

Here's what I'm thinking...

Beckett is designed for narrow-sized faces. It's tapered temple arms and an impeccably crafted bridge will give you a fresh, unique look.

Madison is your unmistakably adventurous pair of sunglasses. These shades feature a traditional bridge and medium width that will suit most faces. 

Jennings is a frame for all. Their curved brow, keyhole bridge, and medium shape will leave you looking cool-as-a-cucumber whether you're smoking some shrimp on the barbie or leisurely lounging in the pool.

So what are you waiting for? Check out these awesome prescription and non-prescription sunglasses!
