It's June, and you know what that means? Weekends filled with music, food, and lots of people. The great thing about Chicago is that once June hits, there's always something to do on the weekends. The city hosts handfuls of summer festivals in surrounding neighborhoods that it's hard to keep track of them all. But you know that there's one near when the roads shuts down and there's just a sea of white tents, people, and the the lingering smell of burning charcoal.
Summer festivals has to be one of my favorite parts of the season. And because of that, it inspires me to really get into the festival mood when it comes to my accessories. Yeah I really love my oversized aviators and fancy sunglasses, but sometimes you really want to beach up the look and go with a more casual, retro style.
One of my favorite picks for this summer is a part of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring and Summer 2013 eyewear collection. He designed these rectangular style sunglasses especially for the beach and I just fell in love with the shape and style when I first came across them.
The simple rectangular shape fits comfortably on my face and it's lightweight construction makes it perfect for trips to the beach and summer grill outs with friends. I am in love with this beige/natural shading with the coral stripes on the sides. It gives it that simplicity with a fun pop of color, which is well suited for the season. The sunglasses have 100% UV protection, making it a staple for those hot summer days where the sun is just beaming on you.
I definitely am going to make great us of these during all of my summer music and food festivities.
