Manic Monday

Hi Loves, 
Sorry it's been so long, apparently graduating from graduate school should be a priority of mine, so I took it upon myself to show responsibility and trick myself into getting work done...which kind of worked, but I'm still up to my ears in paper writing...which is not NEARLY as enjoyable as blog writing...obvi. 

Today I want to express my love of sunglasses. I know many who hate them, never wear them, or perpetually lose them. I do not fit into either of the aforementioned categories. Without sunnies, I am not OK. I wear them every. single. day. I don't care if it's grey out, I've got those suckers firmly planted on. Here's why:

I love them. If that isn't enough for you, then here's some more. I have also convinced myself that sunnies are vital tools for maintaining healthy eyes/vision, and since I have 20/15 vision (which, if you don't know is kind of close to like Superman vision...just sayin') I feel like this gives me proof that I'm right. Also, I think they add a certain air of mystery, and mystery is always fun. Another juicy morsel:  I NEVER lose things. I'm not kidding, I survived all of college without losing a SINGLE thing. The only thing you could say I lost was a little dignity every so often on a Saturday night, and then I had a sweatshirt stolen...NOT lost, but stolen. 

So here are my favorite sunnies:

Ray Ban Aviators with graduated brown lenses. These are amazing. I love the way they look, although they aren't ideal for super super sunny-ness, but they're lightweight, comfy and I love the classic look. 

Ray Ban Wayfarers in Tortoise. I have the smaller frames, since I have a smaller face. I LOVE these. Once again with the classic look, but these def. offer more sun protection, and the uber dark lenses make for perfect hangover sunnies, or great for a day on the boat. I love how I can wear them with brown or black, and they go with my hair color! Sidenote: I also am convinced that they will bring me closer to vampire-dom....yep, I'm insane. I highly recommend these sunnies, I literally wear them ALL the time, very a la Taylor Jacobson. 

My Chanel Mother of Pearl Sunnies in Brown. These babies are definitely more glam than the previously mentioned sunnies, so I typically wear these on more dressy/glam occasions. The only thing I don't like about them is the graduated lenses get so light that you can see my eyes in pictures, and that can get awkward. However, I love the shape of the frame, they're very flattering, and of course, who doesn't love some Chanel in their life?

I feel naked being outdoors without sunnies on, and if I ever DO forget to bring them, or run out sunnie-less, I'm usually a bit disgruntled...nothing personal. 

In other news: I saw New Moon, loved it. Had a problem with some minor issues, and felt like a total cougar while ogling the ridiculously ripped Jacob. Dear Lord, is it natural for 16 year olds to look like that?! It's not fair! ALSO: I LOVE the soundtrack for this movie. I'm a music junkie, and I notice things like soundtracks...maybe that's dorky but I don't care. They did a spectacular job with the soundtrack. I was tickled when I heard Bon Iver on there!

Music/Bands Du Jour: 

Band of Horses- try them out. spectacular band. Fave songs- "Marry Song" and "Funeral"
