“If someone doesn’t brighten your life, don’t take off your sunglasses just find sunshine somewhere else.”
Today’s post was inspired by one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Sazan Barzani. If you haven’t visited her blog, I suggest popping over there pronto! She’s fabulous and her site is amazing! She posts all of the details on her entire outfit and if she is wearing something that is no longer in the stores then she finds similar versions that are currently selling somewhere.
At the beginning of May, Sazan featured a pair of mirrored aviator sunglasses on her blog that I absolutely fell for. She said that hers were from BCBG Max Azria (no longer available however) but as an alternative she suggested a pair of the Ray Ban ‘Original Aviator’ 58mm Sunglasses- Mirror Lens that retail at Nordstrom for $150.
I know aviators are nothing new, but it’s really the tinted mirror factor that drew me to the aviators she was wearing. They really stood out to me.
Shortly after reading her blog, I started noticing that these mirrored aviators and tinted mirrored aviators were popping up everywhere. I saw other bloggers wearing them. I saw them featured in magazines and I saw other women in the city walking with this style sunglasses. I’m not sure if it’s a summer trend or if I’m just noticing them now because I love the style so much??? Either way, I decided I wanted a pair for myself! Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford the Ray Ban pair that Sazan suggested. But I got very lucky when I was at H&M looking for something completely different and by chance a tinted mirror pair of glasses caught my eye. Literally. And what’s even better is they were only $7.99.
I’ve never really thought I was much of an aviator girl. But I gotta tell you, I am really digging them.
NOW, if Chicago would just stay sunny……..
THANKS for the inspiration Sazan! You are the best!
Until next week…Xx!
