I Wear My Sunglasses.....Everywhere

Let's play a guessing game. What is Paris Hilton wearing in this picture that every girly girl needs?

If you guessed sunglasses, you are correct. And you probably cheated by reading the title of this post.

Now, as you know, I am not a very girly girl...YET....but the one thing that I do understand completely is the need for sunglasses as an accessory.

I have a problem. My problem is that I am addicted to sunglasses. Stunna Shades, specs, hater blockers...whatever you want to call them, I love them. My best friends Katie Parham, Nicole Harper, Cortney Davis and I went through a phase where we could not stop buying new sunglasses. Everywhere we went, we found a new pair that we just had to own.

Every time there was a new trend or type of sunglasses that appeared in the stores, we ran out to find it. One of the most fun things for us, was finding them in all types of different colors.

My momma finally put her foot down and told me that I had to take a break from spending all my money on shades, but by that time I already had a very big collection.

Every girly girl needs at least a few different types of sunglasses for different types of outfits. Take my word for it, you want your shades to look good with your attire. 

My love for sunglasses also carried over to college, where my roommate Lisa Easter and I were never without our "Stunna Shades". Lisa rocked them whatever chance she got.

Having these "stunna shades" was the only way to go. Often times, the bigger the shades were, the better.

 We wore them out shopping, to parties, and to lay out on the lawn. We never left our room without them. It was a big trend, and I was happy to follow it. My love for sunglasses grew, and my momma had to tell me to stop spending so much money on them....again.

After freshman year, the "stunna shades" craze calmed down a little, and I was able to start spending my money on other, more important things. Those more important things were clothes to go out in ;)  But, I still had a love for sunglasses, so I still wore them often, even in the snow.

Recently, I have been trying to be a grown up and only wearing my normal black sunglasses out and about. However, you can still catch me wearing pink, yellow, blue, or red sunglasses on pretty sunny days.

So what is the moral of this story? Sunglasses are a must have accessory for any normal girly girl.

 ps- They also keep the sun out of your eyes quite nicely :)
