I’ve never invested in sunglasses–it just never seemed practical, considering mine always seem to have a mind of their own. I can’t count the pairs of sunglasses I’ve lost over the years–whether they’ve been buried in the sand by a mischievous kid or left at someone’s house, mysteriously never to be seen again (You know who you are.) As a result, I’ve made it a policy never to pay more than $20 for a pair. Whenever I lose them, it’s a good excuse to get new ones anyway, considering they don’t stay in style very long.
I encourage you to do the same– These A.J. Morgan Preakness sunglasses are just $19.99 and they also come in four different colors, so you can buy a few to match different outfits if you want to be eccentric. I love that these don’t have those obnoxious gold brand labels on the side, letting you relax on your vacation–not lament about how much you spent on those Fendi sunglasses you just lost to the ocean’s riptide.
