The Very Best Inexpensive Sunglasses

Sunglasses are one of my major, major loves. I have several nice pairs, but always find myself reaching for my cheaper, trendier pairs. You don't have to spend a lot of money to get cool, on-trend frames, and I've rounded up some of my very favorites. The quality of these sunglasses are all awesome, and you won't spend more than fifteen bucks on any pair. Treat yo'self!

THESE gorgeous black-on-black metal frames.

THESE marble-esque, mirrored beauties that get me compliments every time I wear them ;)

THESE super cool gold and pink mirrored beauties.

THESE gorgeous oversized aviators, that I've found to be better quality than THESE similarly cool (but pricier ones!)

THESE fabulous retro shades, that make me want to drive in a vintage convertible with the top down, and a scarf in my hair!

And THESE oversized stunners that have you looking chic (on the cheap!)

Are you like me, with a small army of inexpensive sunglasses stashed everywhere? Or do you have one or to go-to pairs??

2017 Spring Trends to try - Soft, romantic hair

 Soft, romantic hairstyles can look so effortless and chic.....but be anything *but* effortless. Here are a few tutorials that really are quite simple, and perfect for any Spring look!

This incredibly simple knotted updo looks like it took some time, but I did it on my own hair in about three minutes!

This lace braid is incredibly gorgeous, and also looks so much harder than it actually is to create!

To get a bit more volume and texture when pulling apart your braid, I've been using (and loving!) the Loose Texture Powder by Kristin Ess. I sprinkle a tiny bit directly onto the braid section I'm pulling at.

Would you try any of these styles?
