cross my heart

Aren’t these sunglasses just the best? I cannot wait to wear them this summer. I think they will be perfect for the beach or brunch with a crown braid.


These sunglasses are so inexpensive so don’t expect them to be the most durable. They do come in a hard neoprene case (although mine smells of heavy plastic/factory). The lenses are actually a plastic but they shield the sun pretty good. cross my heart sunglasses

Shop them here. If you want to check out some of the other sunglasses I’m coveting right now under $25 check them out here.


summer picks under $25

It’s finally warming up in New Jersey and the sunshine has me thinking past spring straight to summer. With a trip to OBX coming up in June I’ve been thinking about getting a few things to spruce up my summer wardrobe. These are some of my favorite picks and they are all under $25, perhaps we should call them steals!

comfy flip flops

I love the idea of pairing the dress and clutch together – I love red and orange. These havaianas flips flops are so comfy and totally with the few extra dollars over some old navy flips flops and will last 3483942x longer. I need to get my hands on these sunglasses pronto. Anyone else hate bringing their nice sunglasses to the beach? I am pretty sure I still have sand in some of my aviators.

What are you looking to add to your summer wardrobe lineup?
