Good morning friends! The sun is finally shining here in Kansas City and it feels as though my eyes are burning because I haven’t seen it in so long. Is this how Edward Cullen felt when he sparkled (sorry for the Twilight reference!) The sunlight normally hurts my eyes anyway so I wear sunglasses year-round in effort not to wrinkle my skin from squinting.
Since my birthday was last month, I’ve been trying to figure out what I really want as a birthday gift from my boyfriend. He told me to pick whatever I wanted and he would order it. Of course I went for something expensive (Ray Ban Aviators) until I saw the staggering price tag. I didn’t want him to pay over $150 for something I would inevitably sit on sometime this summer. Instead of ordering the pricey sunnies, I found an inexpensive alternative that is just as cute at Old Navy. These pink aviator mirrored lens with gold trimming go for $12!
I’ve linked a few others that are under $25 for you to browse as well! Hopefully you find something you love! As for my birthday present, I’m still on the hunt!

Hello lovelies! I’ve been gone for the past few days because I’m road tripping to Texas. Currently, I’m sitting in a hotel room in the middle of Arkansas. When we got here, we sat outside by a fire pit the hotel had to unwind a bit. It’s amazing what sitting on your backside for 10 straight hours can do to you. My biggest complaint has been my inability to use my iPhone the whole time because I’d go over my data limit. First world problems, right?
The first day of the trip we set out from my house in Maryland and got lunch at an adorable brewery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. My attempt to eat healthy during this road trip began and ended with this lunch. I ordered a vegetarian black bean burger with guacamole and a special white sauce on top. It was the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten! Unfortunately, any attempt to be healthy ended after that when I went and bought chocolate-dipped pretzels.
After the brewery, we continued on our way down through western Virginia and into Tennessee. There were so many picturesque scenes that I couldn’t capture them all. Some things are just meant to be viewed with your own eyes and not through the lens of a camera.
I tried to dress decently on this road trip but gosh it’s hard when all you want to do is wear sweatpants and a hoodie. On this particular day, I was wearing a red tunic from Rachel & Zoe, Lauren Conrad ankle jeans, and Daisy Fuentes sunglasses I found at Kohl’s on clearance. I love aviators for my face shape! I have a round-ish face, so to balance it out square or triangular shaped glasses look best. I simply cannot wear any rounded glasses without looking like a bug.

Where does the time go? This past weekend was just busy! I’m exhausted but feeling accomplished. Yesterday, I went in search of something pretty and stylish that would lighten my mood and make me smile. I ended up finding (and falling in love with) these gorgeous glasses in the Concentric Collection by Warby Parker.
Most of you probably don’t know that I wear glasses for distance. The current frames I have are pink and black by Guess. I’ve had them since early high school and haven’t wanted to change them, they’re pink after all! This new collection has me rethinking this decision though. My favorites frames are the Cognac Tortoise and Oak Barrel. They also have sunglasses in these frames!
I need to go to the eye doctor soon to make sure my eyes haven’t gotten worse and to adjust my prescription. It’s been a few years to say the least! As much as I love pink, I’m thinking a little update to my frames wouldn’t kill me. Plus, for every pair of glasses sold, Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to charity for someone in need. By taking care of your eyes, you’re caring for the eyes of someone who can’t!
