I was very excited when Warby Parker invited me to put together a post for their #seesummerbetter campaign, and highlight how I’d wear Warby Parker sunglasses this summer. I’ve been considering investing in a new pair of sunglasses for quite some time, and I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to look into Warby Parker’s Home Try-On Program. I picked out five pairs online, and Warby Parker sent them to me for five days so that I could try them on from the convenience of my own home.
This summer I’ve been really trying to make the most of my time in SoCal by making multiple trips to the beach and hanging out at my favorite local spots. For that reason, I picked out styles that fit in with my casual summer style. My sisters and I made another trip to Dana Point this weekend, and it was the perfect opportunity to try on all five Warby Parker sunglasses I picked out.

On our way to the beach, we stopped by Crank and Grind, an awesome coffee shop that also doubles as a bike shop. It’s very convenient because it’s just off the Pacific Coast Highway on the way to Strand Beach. I don’t ride bikes myself, but I’ve found a nice mix of cyclists and people there just to enjoy a good cup of coffee every time I’ve visited.

I’m so glad that I’ve been making going to the beach a priority this summer. It’s an activity that I’ve grown to love more now that I’m much older because it’s a relaxing and inexpensive way to spend the weekend. I decided to try on the “Piper” sunglasses in jet black while I was at the beach because I thought the cat eye style of these shades looked perfect with my retro-inspired bathing suit.

On our way back home from the beach, my sisters and I stopped in the Los Rios Historic District in San Juan Capistrano, so that we could grab coffee at Hidden House Coffee. We spent a few minutes in the street’s Monarch Sanctuary on our way to the coffee shop in order to photograph the last few pairs of sunglasses. We had a very nice man approaches and give us suggestions for different shots while we were there, and that somehow made me feel less self-conscious about taking photos in public.

The great thing about Warby Parker’s Home Try-On Program is that you have the opportunity to try on a variety of styles before you select which one to purchase. I decided to try on the “Reilly” Sunglasses even though I didn’t think they were my style, and I’m really glad I did because I love how much the pattern stands out in person.

I had so much fun trying on different styles of sunglasses and love them all so much I still don’t know know which one I’d pick. I’d love it if you’d help me decide by letting me know which one is your favorite. Also, if you’re thinking of using Warby Parker’s Home Try-On Program and/or buying a pair of their sunglasses, tag your pictures with #seesummerbetter on social media so that other people can know what you’re up to this summer and how you’re rocking your own pair of sunglasses!


P.S. You might have noticed that the quality of pictures on the blog is so much clearer. That’s because I’ve switched to uploading my photos on Flickr instead of uploading them straight to Blogger, which was making my photos seem grainy. I thought I’d spread the word in case any of you also use Blogger and are having similar issues.
