Out & About

It’s time to get up and go! It doesn’t matter if you’re couch surfing or resort lounging — no trip is complete without the right pair of shades. To help you pinpoint your next destination (and pack the perfect shades for the trip!), we polled a few of our favorite travel bloggers about which destination they have their eye on next — plus which pair of Sunglass Warehouse shades best suit the trip!

Destination Shades

1. Reykjavik

Recommended Shades: SW Oversized Style #3439

Travel Sunglasses

Jennifer of Jdomb’s TravelsWe’ve been to 50 countries now, and without hesitation, we’ll tell you that Iceland is our favorite! We love the otherworldly landscapes, abundance of adventure activities like snorkeling in near-freezing water and glacier trekking, and still being able to get a bit of luxury and pampering in chic Reykjavik. Oversized sunglasses like these are perfect for keeping me stylish on and off the glacier!

2. Orlando

Recommended Shades: SW Padded Sport Style #1889

Travel Sunglasses

Beth of The Vacation GalsOver the past couple of years, my husband and I have been really getting into destination road races. I can’t think of anything better than combining fitness with travel. Orlando is one of my favorite destinations since it brings out the kid in me. I’m hoping to run a Disney World race in the near future (post baby, as I’m due any day)! However, the one thing I’ve learned is that it’s important to have eye protection, especially in a sunny destination such as Orlando. I was excited to see that Sunglasses Warehouse offers sport options, specifically this padded sport style. Not only does it come in a selection of colors (pink and silver for me, please), but the EVA foam padded lenses makes for a snug but comfortable fit.

3. Panama City Beach

Recommended Shades: SW Retro Style #1275

Travel Sunglasses

Christy of Ordinary TravelerThis weekend, I’m headed to PCB, Florida for the first time. Based on the photos of Shell Island and the crystal-clear water, I’m pretty sure I’ll fall in love with this destination. I would choose these red retro style sunglasses for this trip because they would look great in photos with the blue water in the background.

4. Riviera Maya

Recommended Shades: SW Oversized Style 1702

Travel Sunglasses

Corinne of Have Baby Will TravelThese oversized sunglasses were “the perfect fit” for our recent vacation to Riviera Maya, in Mexico. Riviera Maya is one of our favorite spots for a family vacation, since it’s a perfect mix of beach and culture — plus, the fabulous and kid-friendly Mexican food is a bonus. I like these celebrity-inspired frames because on a beach vacation with my family, it’s one of the few ways I feel I can add a pinch of glamour to my look. I’m usually spending my days in a sandy swimsuit and cover-up, with my hair a beachy mess, so these somewhat glamorous shades make me feel like I mean to look that way!

5. Waikiki

Recommended Shades: SW Bi-Focal Style #55440

Travel Sunglasses

Kara of The Vacation GalsI love the look of these slightly oversized tortoiseshell frames for vacationing in one of my favorite tropical spots in the world: Hawaii. I’m not getting any younger(!), and I’m finding myself squinting more and more when I’m looking at my phone or restaurant menus. With these bi-focal shades, I can read in comfort on a chaise lounge at the beach, and I’ll be able to better read small print on my phone’s map app as I’m sightseeing on Kauai or shopping in the streets Waikiki.

6. Maui

Recommended Shades: SW Polarized Retro Style #540432

Travel Sunglasses

Jennifer of The Vacation GalsMaui in Hawaii is the place I cannot WAIT to show off my retro tortoise frames. I’ll be staying on Wailea Beach. On this stretch of Maui, Hawaiian sea turtles love sitting in the sun and soaking up those warm golden rays as much as all of the island’s human visitors do. The sunglasses will protect my eyes, and who knows? Maybe the tortoiseshell pattern will confuse those large, lazy, sun basking turtles into thinking I’m one of their land-based cousins.

7. Scandinavia

Recommended Shades: SW Aviator Style #490

Travel Sunglasses

Marie of EuroTrip TipsI gotta admit that I’m a big fan of Northern Europe (Germany, Scandinavia, UK, etc.) — I like the efficiency, the architecture, and even the weather! I would narrow down my favorite place to Scandinavia, a mix of Swedish chic, Norwegian outdoors, and Danish city vibes. Forward-thinking, outstandingly beautiful, incredibly stylish (and not to mention historic Vikings and delicious food) … that’s Scandinavia for me!

8. Boracay

Recommended Shades: SW Mirrored Retro Style #1645

Travel Sunglasses

Brendan of Bren On The RoadBoracay in The Philippines, because it’s a busy tropical island with a charming, laidback vibe. I’d recommend rocking a pair of white wayfarers — perfect for looking stylish on the most gorgeous white sand beach in the world.

9. Bwindi National Park, Uganda

Recommended Shades: SW Retro Aviator Style #1904

Travel Sunglasses

Brendan of Bren On The Road: Visit Bwindi National Park in Uganda; it’s home to incredible mountain gorillas, and you’ll find yourself standing only a few footsteps away from them. Arm yourself with a vintage pair of aviators for this one — you’ll look and feel like one of those classic safari rangers. Plus, those gorillas won’t see the fear in your eyes when they stare straight at you!

10. Sossusvlei

Recommended Shades: SW Polarized Retro Style #540432

Travel Sunglasses

Brendan of Brendan’s AdventuresGet yourself to Sossusvlei, Namibia. I’ve been to deserts on four different continents, and the red sands of these dunes are by far the most majestic. Be sure to pack yourself a pair of polarized sunnies to truly bring out the red of the earth and the blue of the sky. Personally, I’d rock these polarized retro shades, as they’ll keep your eyes protected, keep the colors popping, and have you looking suave all the while.

11. Antarctica

Recommended Shades: SW Padded Sport Style #4230

Travel Sunglasses

Nellie of WildJunketAntarctica is definitely the top travel destination for me as there’s nowhere else quite like it in the world. Here at the southernmost tip of the world, icebergs stand taller than skyscrapers, glaciers run for miles, and whales, seals, and penguins roam freely. When the midnight sun is out, protect your eyes with a pair of athletic sunglasses like these – sometimes the snow sparkles and dazzles so much it can blind you!

So, which destination is next on your bucket list? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter, and share pics of your trip with @SunglassWarehouse on Instagram!

Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Holiday Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists.

Meet Sarah, the blogger behind Raving Fashionista who loves to play dress up. With a strong sense of personal style and a confident personality, Sarah wants to change the way you look at your closet. Keep scrolling down to read our interview with her and find out how to snag her stylish shades!

Raving Fashionista Interview

Sarah looking cool in our #490s

What sunglass style personality do you most identify with and why? (Read up on all the personalities here.) 

Sarah: Probably Indie Artist — my style definitely has a boho influence to it.

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Sarah: Well, a great pair of sunglasses seems like an obvious choice but come on, they’d be necessary!

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Sarah: This is tough! There are so many people who’s brains I would love to pick over a burger and fries. I love a good laugh so I think Mindy Kaling would be a delight to have lunch with. Chelsea Handler would be another good choice. She seems like someone who you could carry on a serious conversation with about world issues, engage in a heated debate, or laugh until your sides hurt all in the same meal — plus she’s also from New Jersey so there’s a certain camaraderie there.

Raving Fashionista Interview

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received?

Sarah: Don’t take fashion too seriously, break all the rules, and if you feel good in it, you’ll look good in it.

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Sarah: I could spend hours online “window shopping” on Asos. Their selection seems never-ending. They have countless brands featured, and the prices range from the crazy affordable to wish list-worthy. I’ll head there to find a dress for an event and suddenly it’s four hours later and I’ve spiraled down a rabbit hole of midi skirts and cute shoes!

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite SunglassWarehouse.com shades?

Sarah: I’m a sucker for an aviator style, (like this pair!), but I’m also really into round styles lately and SunglassWarehouse.com has so many of those to pick from!

Thank you to Sarah for getting to know us a little better! We love your fun, girly style!

Meet Mary-Katherine, the blonde beauty behind Gold-Hatted Lover, where she writes about style, adventures with her husband, and her beloved baseball team. Check out our interview with her below and find out why we can’t get enough of her fashion-forward style!

Gold-Hatted Lover

Mary-Katherine in our #2266s

What sunglass style personality do you most identify with and why? (Read up on all the personalities here.)

Mary-Katherine: The sunglass style personality I identify with the most is Trendsetter. I feel that sunglasses are another accessory that can really complete an outfit. Sometimes, I will try on multiple pairs of sunnies and find that my outfit looks different depending which pair I choose. I love that my sunglasses have that much power!

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Mary-Katherine: This answer changes all the time because I would honestly love to meet with so many people since everyone always has something unique to share. But right now I would say Julia Engel, the blogger behind Gal Meets Glam. She is a huge inspiration and my fashion idol, plus she just seems so darling!

Gold-Hatted Lover

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Mary-Katherine: Well, since it is an island I would have to say a swimsuit!  My favorite is a one-piece from Zinke that has a deep ruffled front and criss-cross back and makes me feel like a Baywatch babe!

What is your current Internet addiction?

Mary-Katherine: I’m always finding new blogs that I love!

If you had a personal theme song, what would it be?

Mary-Katherine: I love music so much that this would be a constantly changing answer! But right now I would say “Back to You” by Bryan Adams. The song reminds me of my husband when we first started dating. I made him a mixed CD and he said this was his favorite song on it!

Thanks to Mary-Katherine for taking the time to answer our questions! We love your chic, classic style :)

Holiday DIYs

‘Tis the season for crafting! You’re not the only one adding more pins to that DIY board as the holidays approach. We challenged our favorite bloggers to create some fun, easy DIYs with nothing but a box of crazy-festive crafting supplies. Check out what they came up with and try them out on your own!

Just because we’re heading full steam ahead into winter right now doesn’t mean it’s quite time to ditch those sunnies. Although it might seem like sunny days are few and far between, sunglasses still come in handy this time of year, especially when it’s snowing (which causes glare)! To help you jazz up some shades for this holiday season, Emily & Jessica of Bespoke Bride created three unique (and super easy!) DIYs. Read on for their instructions and photos!

Holiday Sunglasses DIY by Bespoke Bride

1. Santa’s Sunglasses

Santa's Sunglasses DIY

All you need for this DIY is a hot glue gun and a mini Santa hat (check your local craft store!). Simply glue the hat onto the corner of your sunglasses to create this festive look! Craving these cute polka dot shades? Snag your own pair to DIY here!

2. Stars In Your Eyes

Stars In Your Eyes DIY

This is another very simple DIY. All you need is a hot glue gun and a pack of star confetti. Glue the stars along the top brow of your sunglasses for a great way to add glitz and glam to your look! Try it out with these cat eyes, pictured above.

3. Boho Glam

Boho Holiday Sunglasses DIY

If hot glue isn’t your thing, how about using paint and a Sharpie to decorate your shades? First, paint the arms of your sunglasses in a color of your choosing (we chose green!). Then, take a Sharpie and create this boho pattern on either side. If you love to doodle, this is an easy, fabulous way to personalize your shades. Try it out with these retro-inspired sunnies.

Bespoke Bride DIY

Happy Holidays!

Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Fall Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists.

Introducing Kristen of the fashion/music/beauty blog Style Wax Poetic. Inspired by the idea that fashion can be just as artistic as music or poetry, Kristen creates looks that channel her trendy-girl style. Read on for more about why we love Kristen and to find out which SW shades she can’t get enough of!

Style Wax Poetic

Kristen looking chic in our #490s

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with and why?

Kristen: Trendsetter! I love anything outside the box.

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Kristen: A maxi dress!

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Kristen: Trying a trend that just doesn’t work for you. If everyone has done it, it already looks like you’re following the crowd, and certain trends work better for some people than they do for others. Stick with what works for you and be confident!

Style Wax Poetic

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

Kristen: I usually go my own way, but I think the best advice I’ve had is visual cues from some of my blogger babes and pictures of stylish people who take risks with their looks. I know the “girl” I want to be and I quite often shift my style to reflect that!

What’s your current Internet addiction? 

Kristen: Discovering new blogs and seeing what my peers are up to — the latest I’m loving are Chapter Friday, The Stylemma, and I always love Happily Grey.

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite Sunglass Warehouse shades?

Kristen: I love mirrored shades aright now – these aviators are perfect!

Thank you to Kristen for taking the time to answer our questions and giving us a behind-the-scenes look at your stylish adventures!

7. John Lennon

Channel Kim Kardashian this Halloween in leather leggings, black stilettos, and paparazzi-shielding shades. Complete the costume and earn major swag if you can recruit a Kanye and baby North West to join you for the night. Best of luck.
