The glare

When it comes to eyewear, I'm in it for the look.

I realize there are actual benefits to a good pair of sunglasses, like protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays and in the case of these Hobie Polarized lenses, reducing the glare off reflective surfaces such as water and making it easier to see when you are say, perhaps out kayaking.

Now, these are not my kayaks. However I'm hoping I can borrow one, and when that happens I will have sunglasses that will help me see better, and look really cute too.

  4. Oh the color and stripe mix looks soo good--
    We have a race here every year that it's done in kayak or cayuco as we call them here - and it's from one ocean to the other (Atlantic to Pacific) . I know people who have been one it and always admire their strong arms... i would probably pass out at so much work.

  13. Oh, those are so cute! And eye protection is totally in these days, wink wink. I adore your hair up in a bun like that, Lyddie! And look at you being and stripey and nautical next to those colorful kayaks. :)

  19. Hi Lyddie,

    Love the look - am hunting a striped dress for myself for our upcoming summer.

    Another plus of wearing sunnies is that helps to reduce wrinkles around your eyes - wish I'd know that when I was younger.

  29. I really like the kayaks and this outfit. In fact, I think you need to be in an L.L. Bean catalog because you could be selling the beachy kayaky lifestyle thing right now!

  32. I'm exactly the same with sunglasses - I know how important all of the UV protection and anti-glare is, but since I can hardly see to start with, it all seems a little less important than if the pair in question is cute. And these definitely are, especially paired with your double stripe outfit!
