How To Accessorize With Sunglasses

With summer staring me in the eyes, I decided I needed to add to my sunglasses collection this past weekend. I own a couple of higher end designer pairs that I adore, but when it comes to hitting the beach or pool with 3 children, I need more practical (= cheap) ones that I don't mind getting beat up.  Here's a peak at three looks I created and how you can get creative with accessorizing with your own sunglasses!  
My equation for accessorizing with sunglasses ::  
Sunnies + Hair + Lipcolor + Earrings = Complete face look

{LOOK #1.  MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass in "full speed ahead.}

 {Bright beaded earrings and glossy lips pull in the happy yellow sunnies vibe!}

{Hair was left down and unfussy.  Don't you like seeing my towel racks in the reflections??!}

{LOOK #2.  Wet n Wild lipstick in #903C.}

 {Printed extra large frames are a fun way to spice up a boring outfit!  
This black and white print goes with everything!}

{A wrapped side pony tail and simple diamond studs finish the look -fake diamond studs:)}

{LOOK #3.  MAC matte Lady Danger.}

 {Hair got cut off in picture, but it's a high messy top knot with focus on the lips!}

{My simple geometric earrings are the perfect compliment to the thin Ray Ban frames.}

My top two pairs of sunglasses are my newest additions that I got at a cheapy little store in our local mall, at 2 for $15!  You can't beat that for these super trendy sunnies.  And my 3 year old Ray Bans are my staples that I wear all the time when I want a simple polished look.  My blush is MAC's "fleur power" in all 3 looks.

What are your favorite types of shades to wear right now? Do you go expensive shades or cheapo trendy sunnies?

I love how you have accessorized the sunnies - each of the look has a different message - 1) trendy, 2) movie star and 3) classy/casual.

I do get a lot of doubtful looks at the beach or the pool when I wear accessories or lipstick, but I guess it does not bother me enough to stop:)

Great post! I think I only own 3 pairs of sunglasses! One is a cheap, F21 pair, then I have a Pucci pair, and a Gucci pair (a bday gift from my husband).

I always wear my Gucci glasses now. They're my favorites, and I don't usually have time to think about switching!

I love aviators but I feel like I cannot pull them off! So cute on you, though!:)

Love this post! I cannot live without sunglasses! I must have at least 20 pair (mostly cheapies). I ADORE that full speed ahead lipglass, I must have that NOW! :)
