Made in the Shade

I've always been a clothes horse, but accessories usually took a backseat to my addiction to clothing. About five years ago I started getting into bags and shoes and now I have moved on to sunglasses. Living in Los Angeles means that sunglasses are part of your daily wardrobe all year around. I don't have a ton of sunglasses, but I think it's nice to have a handful of unique, signature ones. For a while it was my Prada "Baroque" round sunglasses with the curly q temples. (My father-in-law makes a joke about them every time I wear them, so now you understand where my husband's biting wit about my wardrobe comes from!) Now, I have moved on to more colorful options like these turquoise and tortoiseshell ones from Stella McCartney.   

Now that summer is here, I can think of about a million things I want to wear these turquoise shades with, especially some of my wardrobe that is in hues of pink because who doesn't love the retro feel of pink (especially hot pink) and turquoise together? Today I am wearing these shades with one of my all time favorite skirts featuring a plethora of shoes. I love this skirt because the shoes are so colorful that it is a cinch to match it to just about anything in my wardrobe.

In honor of my brand new shades, I am featuring some other sunglasses below. While some are more traditional, I tried to pick others with unique styles or colors that would definitely make a statement this summer because, as I stated before, sunglasses are a great way to create a signature look in your wardrobe.

Shirt: Old Navy similar chambray style
Skirt: Eva Franco

Shoes: J. Crew similar gold flats
Sunglasses: Stella McCartney
Watch: Kate Spade gold bow watch
