Fresh Picks to Follow – Summer Ready?

Are you ready for summer? I know that I am.  So yesterday was the official first day of summer, but I’m not able to see or feel the difference.  I’ve been summer ready for a few months now since I live in Florida.  I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid I always used to look forward to the first day of summer.  Growing up in Jersey it was just one of those things that I looked forwarded to each year.  My summers were never filled with exotic vacations anywhere, but my sisters and I had the best time hanging out with our neighbors on the block or with family in Brooklyn, NY.  One of the many reasons that I looked forward to summer is that I got to buy a couple new summer outfits each year. I remember my mom dressing my sisters and I up in some sort of nautical themed outfits and over the years it has stuck with me.   Each summer I always end up finding at least one piece of clothing or accessory that reminds me of summer at sea.  For this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, here are my top 10 nautical pieces to get me ready for summerDo you buy any specific outfits or pieces or accessories to get you ready for the summer? Let me know in the comments.

Fresh Picks to Follow – Summer Sunnies

It’s been raining cats and dogs here in Florida lately, so I haven’t had the need for sunglasses for about a week.  But we all know that this is only temporary.  Since I’ve moved back to Florida, I’ve owned several pairs of sunglasses to get me through each year. I have a couple pairs of designer sunglasses (bought on a deep discount) that I don’t wear all the time, because I’m afraid that I’ll either lose them or break them.  And I definitely don’t run in them.  For my run days, I grab a pair of my cheap glasses or wear a sun visor instead. 

I’ve always thought about investing in a really nice pair of designer sunglasses, but then I think to myself is it really worth the price? I recently read an article that suggested that they are not.  For starters, did you know that most sunglasses are made by the same company?  One company, Italian manufacturer Luxottica, makes some all of the top brands like Burberry, Chanel, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch and Donna Karan.  Luxottica is one of the biggest consumer companies that many consumers have never heard of before.  Another thing that I learned is that in many cases, the same company is also selling you the glasses. Luxottica also owns LensCrafters, Pearle Vision and Sunglass Hut. Who knew right?  Check out this article here for more information about sunglasses.

Anyways, for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, here are my top 10 sunnies that I’ve been eyeing lately.  It’s a mix of high-end designer brands and low end designer knock offs.  Do any of you have a pair of sunnies that you can’t live without?  What’s your favorite pair? Do you splurge or try to save money when it comes to sunglasses?  Let me know in the comments.
