You guys. As I write this, the sun is shining. I absolutely underappreciated the sun growing up in Florida. It's kind of like how my house was always filled with soda and candy... we had so much of it that it wasn't a big deal. Friends would come over and be in candy heaven, but my sister and I could not care less about it. That's exactly what it was like for the sun. We had so much of it. An absolute overabundance of sun apparently underwhelms you overtime. It's really not until it's dark all the time that you seriously begin to appreciate.
I've been super thankful for the extra hour of sunlight in the evenings. Today is the first day of spring and the days are just getting longer. I am a-okay with that. The only problem is that the sun has been hiding quite a bit here in Manhattan. Snow and rain and plain ole gray skies had me feeling super blue. I think it was definitely contributing to my homesicknesses.
Miraculously, the sun came out. I'm talking BRIGHT BLUE skies.
Here comes the sun! ☀ “@katespadeny: @collegeprepster it's like a miracle”

Even Kate Spade agreed.
Anyway, now that it's officially spring and now that there is officially sunlight when I leave the office every evening... It's time to pick up a new pair of sunglasses. In the pictures I took for the Jack Rogers giveaway, I realized that I'm not really feeling those sunnies anymore.
It's not that I don't love them (they're actually one of my most favorite birthday presents that I've ever received), I'm just kind of looking for something new!!!
We are definitely a "Ray-Ban Family." Seriously, you should see the drawer in our house filled with the most ridiculous number of Ray-Ban glasses... every. single. style. you can imagine. My mom and dad never got rid of any of their sunnies so we have a wonderful collection. They're relics.
Case in point. These are sitting in a drawer somewhere. Seriously.
I know, I know. My mom and my sister are kind of the cutest things in the world. Eep!
Ray-Ban Aviators | These glasses were a staple for years. I can't even remember getting them, but I seriously wore them for years and years.
Ray-Ban Clubmasters | Well these were fun little glasses. I wore them on and off for a while, but they're kind of not my style.
And the Wayfarers. Oh, I do love them.
Anyway... which pair should I make my new frames?
