Mirrored sunnies are clearly having a moment, and as someone with a bit of a sunglasses addiction I could not turn down the opportunity to try a pair when Nectar invited me to take a look at their bold, bright line.

Nectar's sunglasses are comfortable, durable, and offer "insane amounts of style", while being priced attainably at $25. They are a brand that believes in living your best life, loving what you do, and seeking out greater challenges.

That is exactly the kind of mindset I need to have right now, and while it takes more than sunglasses alone to get there, I need to remember that everything I look at is reflected back in them, so I ought to keep my head pointed in the right direction.

  6. YES, loving everything about this outfit!! Super cute graphic tee and that skirt is amazing. I love the mix of metallics.

  7. Mirrored sunglasses definitely are having a moment - I feel like I'm missing out by not having a pair! (And because I keep thinking of all the fun photography things that could be done with the reflections in them.) Definitely time to get on that. And on getting another ampersand tee, because this one is adorable! (Which means I could totally justify owning two, ha ha.)

  8. This is so chic! I love all the touches of gold!

  18. Mirrored sunglasses is definitely having a moment for a while. Last year I was on hunt for mirrored Ray Ben aviator sunglasses, but they was sold out so quickly I didn't had even a chance. They're effortlessly stylish and looks amazing in photos (here's talking fblogger).
    Your & Tee is so lovely.

  26. You look gorgeous and once again this has a nautical vibe. Loving the skirt, tee, bag and bracelets. And I want a pair of mirrored sunglasses. They are back in style - everything eventually comes back.
