The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades!

WooooHooo! It's Friday, my friends! This was a quick week and because it's a holiday weekend, that means next week will be short too. Score!

For this week's Fashion Friday, I decided to feature something that  I will not be leaving home without as The Husband and I make our jaunt down to the low country this weekend.

I absolutely adore Ray-Bans and three words come to mind when I think of them...Classic. Timeless. and Cool. I grew up watching my parents reach for their trusty Ray-Bans nearly everyday. Now I wear them and I will bet my bottom dollar that my future children will wear them too. Only a few brands can rightfully proclaim their timelessness. Ray-Ban has definitely snagged that title and continues to reign as a timeless brand. I admire that so much in a brand. Such an achievement!

For years I would opt for fashion sunglasses, which are great but investing in a nice pair of sunglasses is something everyone should do. Our eyes are critical and we should protect them from the sun's harmful rays...so why not look cool while doing it?  Several years ago I bit the bullet and invested in a nice pair of polarized Ray-Bans. As I knew I would, I have enjoyed them immensely. I don't think I could ever go back. Polarized lenses rock! With more sunny days in my near future, I'm thinking about adding another pair to my collection.  Here are some styles catching my eye lately (pun intended, I couldn't help myself!)...

Good shape. Not too big, not too small.
Plus, I heart tortoise shell!

So classic.

A new twist on an old classic.
Thoughts?

Which ones are your favorite? Do you polarize or not? 

I hope you and your families have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Thank you to all of those who have fought, fallen and those currently fighting for our freedoms. God Bless the USA! 
Be safe out there and by all means, Be Social! :)

P.S. Today marks my 100th post! I think another give away is in order to commemorate,
 don't ya think?
