STYLE: Cheap Sunglasses Roundup

It's summer, guys! S-U-M-M-E-R. Aside from stuff like humid apartments, sand in our nether regions, melting makeup and that horrible, horrible feeling of becoming sweaty the instant you step out of the shower, summer is actually pretty alright. Have you noticed? So much of the good stuff is synonymous with summer - corn on the cob, swimming, grass, air conditioning, cookouts, the ocean and, of course, the sun. I'm assuming you can handle all that stuff yourself, so I'm just going to talk about that last one: the sun.

Somewhere between my best friend and my mortal enemy, the sun makes me feel all giddy and excited at times, while other times it's busy making my mustache area glisten and my skin turn lobster red. We struggle to get to a happy medium, and mostly it works well. One good thing is that the sun allows me to purchase WAY too many pairs of sunglasses, which I love. They're basically medicinal, right? Right.

Since I'm pretty cheap (but I'm focused on value, not cost necessarily) I love nothing more than scoring a super deal on fun sunglasses. Okay, I've already lied to you; I love A TON of stuff more than a good deal on sunglasses, but for the purposes of this post let's just get all hyperbolic up in here. Cheap sunglasses = good. I just CANNOT shell out more than $10 or so for something that has a 50/50 chance of ending up in broken pieces beneath my butt. This is a great general rule to live by, I think. 

These are all dirt cheap! We're talking around $5 mostly so get with it and buy some cheap sunglasses - it's S-U-M-M-E-R! It's more exciting when it's spelled that way, duh.

Do you own a lot of sunglasses? What's the longest you've kept a pair around without crushing them accidentally? My record so far is nine years and counting. I've always been too scared of jinxing myself to admit that, so I think that means we're getting closer, guys. Why are most people so inept at keeping sunglasses alive?



  1. I love most of these pairs, so much. I've never spent more than $10 on a single pair of sunglasses, and I've got fifteen right now. That, of course, doesn't include the ones I've broken over the years. Long live cheap sunglasses!

    1. When they're cheap it's SO EASY to have a ton of them! xo
