Save vs. Splurge: My Favorite Sunglasses for Summer


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a nude trench coat and cut-off denim shortsWith summertime around the corner, I’m so excited to finally have my favorite sunglasses on non-stop rotation. From sunny rooftop parties to afternoons basking in the park, there’s a great pair of sunglasses for every situation. I love summer because you can find so many flattering shapes and fun frames whether you’re in the mood to step out in your best designer pair or just want an easy on-trend pair over your head. I do splurge on designer sunglasses from time to time because they offer 100% UV protection and are made well enough to last a lifetime. However, I also have a few budget-friendly ones that I wear on repeat. Read ahead for some of my preferred sunglasses to save and splurge on.
