hey hey everybody,
i hope everyone had an all around amazing weekend. the hubs {?!?!} and i headed down to the always sunny south bay for a day at the park, some crazy good korean fried chicken and a movie date with james mcevoy, michael fassbender, january jones, jennifer lawrence & kevin bacon {x-men 1st class}.
and today, i’ve been jonesing for a new pair {or two?} of playful sunnies. it’s a new season after all and visions of  80’s technicolor and mod-inspired round and sultry cat shades keep catching my eye. look!

i need your advice – which ones do you think i should rock this summer? the red hot cat eyes are marvelous but those 80’s electric blue sunnies are so rad. 
what sunnies are you dreaming of this summer? oversized? retro? super duper bright?  i can’t wait to hear!

  2. That is not an easy choice! I’m a fan of those round cat eyes (so chic!) but those electric blues are hard to resist…
