Ok, I know that it is almost halfway through the month of August and therefore it might seem to be a bit out of season to make a post about sunglasses, but I am of the firm belief that sunglasses are a year round accessory!

I just got my laptop (with webcam!) back from being repaired today, so you guys are going to be treated to me mugging for my webcam to show off a couple of my pairs of sunglasses.

Maybe it's because I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, but sunglasses are part of my daily wardrobe. I always throw a pair on before leaving the house.

Unfortunately, I have a major tendency to either loose my sunglasses or break them. Thus, I refuse to spend more than $20 on a pair of sunglasses. I've had a lot of luck finding cheap pairs of cute sunglasses at American Eagle, H&M, and Target, so I look good wearing them, but I don't feel too badly when I inevitably break them or leave them somewhere.

I do, however, LOVE to try on sunglasses that are way out of my price range. When I lived in London, I used to go to the sunglasses section of the major high end department stores like Harrods or Selfridges and try on all kinds of sunglasses and fantasize about the day I might have enough money to afford them.

What about you? Are sunglasses a part of your daily wardrobe? Do you invest in expensive designer sunglasses or are you content with cheap ones from Target? What are you favorite brands?
