It’s Wednesday! Halfway through this week, y’all! With 4th of July just around the corner, I thought I would share a post comparing two styles of popular sunglasses: aviators & wayfarers.

Aviators

These sunglasses remind me of Top Gun. Anyone have a crush on Tom Cruise in that movie? ;) I like the way Aviators are so recognizable.

Pros: sporty styling, large lenses keep sun out

Cons: get stuck in your hair when on top of your head, tend to leave nosepiece indentations/redness, heavy

Buy these if: you want to make a statement with a flashy pair of sunglasses!

Outfit idea:

Shop Aviators (hover over each pair for the price point):

(I wear these, these, and these)

Wayfarers

These sunglasses are the ones that go everywhere with me. They’ve been with me to China, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and Honduras. They are trusty and hold up very well.

Pros: classic styling, look good on virtually anyone, don’t leave indentations on the face/nosepiece, lightweight

Cons: None!

Buy these if: you want a classic, everyday pair of sunglasses that go with everything!

Outfit idea: 

Shop Wayfarers (hover over each pair for the price point):

(I wear these & these)

Final thoughts

*I would go for Ray-Ban branded Wayfarers, because they hold up forever & I wear them almost every day.

*I would spend less & go with a different brand of Aviators, because I don’t wear them as often.

*If I had to pick, I’m #TeamWayfarer ;)


I want to hear from you:

-Are you #TeamAviator or #TeamWayfarer?

Happy Monday y’all! Today’s post is (hopefully) the first of many where I show you some fun outfits. I want to make it known that #1: I am not a model & #2: I just simply want to share normal, easy outfits that you can put together. Today’s post is featuring a whole lot of color with a floral kimono that is airy & great for summer. I hope you enjoy & please let me know what you think :)

Floral Kimono, old (similar only $13.80!) // t-shirt, sold out (similar) // jeans, Nordstrom (crazy flattering!) // clutch, GiGi New York // necklace, Kendra Scott // earrings, Gorjana (UNDER $20!) // sunglasses, Ray-Ban (color is “brown mirror”) // nail polish, OPI (color: Alpine Snow) // lip pencil, NARS

There is SO much color going on with this kimono & necklace that I chose to pair them with a muted, classic clutch. You are going to see much more of my monogram…I’m from the South & it’s a staple around here. These Ray-Bans are a favorite of mine and you can’t go wrong with a mirrored aviator.

It has been a dream of mine for months to shoot some outfit of the day pictures and put them on the blog. My dream is finally coming true. I want to thank you for reading & supporting my blog throughout the last 2 years. I had to put it all on hold while I finished my classroom work, but I’m ready to dive in to all things fashion, beauty, travel, and decor for the everyday girl. I believe there is something to be said for cute outfits that don’t break the bank. I welcome feedback as I start working more with this type of post.

My photographer is AMAZING y’all, she is super attentive and listens to all of my (crazy) ideas and shoots awesome pictures. If you are in central Arkansas, check her out. She is on Facebook & Instagram!

If you follow me on Instagram, you are aware of the fact of my LOVE for Ray-Bans, specifically my Wayfarers. I could wear them all day, every day. Some days I think I could almost sleep in them. They are that great. I promise…it’s one purchase you will NEVER regret. I have had mine for over 3 years, and they look just amazing as they did the first day!
