Product Review: REKS Optics

REKS Optics

Good morning, loves! It’s almost the weekend and the weather is beginning to heat up, both on the west coast and the east coast. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you my absolute favorite brand of sunglasses: REKS Optics.

REKS Optics has everything that you could want in a pair of sunglasses! They are completely customizable, so you can design a pair that fits your unique style. How cool is that?! Here are some of your options…

Frame: SeafarerRoundAviatorWrap AroundSport, and Sling-Blade. I prefer the round frames, but it all depends on the shape of your face and your style.

Lenses: Solux (lightweight and shatter resistant), Lumolux (polarized to resist glare), and Chromalux  (darker in sun, lighter in shade). I love the lumolux lenses because they are polarized.

Colors for Shades and Lenses: There are multiple colors available. I prefer to match my frames with my lenses, but you can mix and match depending on the style.

And best of all, REKS Optics are UNBREAKABLE!! Yes, I just typed that. These sunglasses bend, but don’t break! Which is absolutely amazing. These durable, yet stylish, sunglasses are perfect for when I teach, travel, or just for everyday use. I can say this with confidence because when Alejandro and I moved to California, I simply threw these sunnies in the front pocket of my suitcase…AND THEY WERE FINE! And we all know how the airport can treat our luggage.

Finally, REKS Optics are also affordable, with prices ranging from $30-$60! What more could you ask for?

What to Wear: Day Date at the Beach

Hey, loves! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and that your week is off to a great start. I was super excited for this past weekend because my boyfriend and I planned a day trip to Santa Barbara! We woke up early, cooked breakfast together, and then packed a picnic for us and our fur baby.

Since the weather was only in the seventies yesterday, I wanted to share with you my beach OOTD! For summer the typical beach look is a cute bathing suit and a fun cover up. But what do you wear when you’re just there to walk along the beach, browse the shops, and munch on delicious seafood? I chose to wear a crop top, comfortable shorts, and a lite weight sweater for our day date. For these California “June gloom” days, it’s important to layer. State Street (one of the main shopping areas in Santa Barbara) can get pretty warm because you’re walking in the sun. But drive ten minutes to the coast and it will get windy real fast. And of course, you can never go wrong with a pair of white Keds. Trust me, if you’re heading to a beach town like Santa Barbara, you do not want to wear sandals. There are so many cute shops, and delicious places to eat, you’ll lose track of time while walking around (like I did), and your feet will be sore from all the exploring. Remember, the goal is to be cute but comfortable.

How do you like to dress for a day date at the beach?

WHAT I WORE: Pom Pom Fedora Hat

With summer just around the corner, I have been on the lookout for new clothes and accessories. With our move from Boston to California, I found that most of my clothing was for colder weather. And with all my new Cali friends telling me how hot The Valley can get, I have been wanting to revamp my wardrobe with some summer necessities. With that being said, I could not have been happier to from this pom pom fedora hat from ILYMIX! I love the detailing of the playful pom poms and the metallic tinsel on this hat. It makes this accessory unique, while still maintaining the ability to match with various outfits.

WHAT I WORE

Tonight my boyfriend and I had a date night at a local Mexican restaurant. I chose to stick to the color pallet of my new hat, and build an outfit from there. I decided to embrace the California look by wearing shorts, a tank, and a long thin sweater. If there’s one thing I have learned about living in The Valley, it’s that it is hot during the day and cold at night. I wore my new hat with shorts from Express, one of my favorite purses from The Paper Store, and a tank top and sweater from a thrift store. I don’t know about you, but I love mixing the old with the new!

ELEVATING MY LOOK

Since I was wearing high rise jean shorts, I used a hair elastic to tie a knot in my tank top. This simple styling turned my loose-fitting tank top into a crop top. As always, I love to add some bohemian flare to my outfit by accessorizing. I chose to wear gold jewelry since there is gold tinsel on my pom pom hat.
