Eyes for Coastal | FASHION

Every few months, it comes back around: my West Coast craving. It's a special nagging-tugging-kinda-feeling that pulls at my heart until I give in and pay Miss California a visit...she's honestly quite high maintenance. :) The coast has become my special getaway for unplugging and unwinding. So for those wondering, no...I'm not "always there," and no, I don't live there, and no...I don't have a second home there...but how fabulous would that be?? Leave me to dream (and plan my next trip).

Speaking of the coast...I cannot tell you how many comments I've gotten on my new eyewear--not only on Instagram but even more so in person--that I'm SO excited to share where in the world I got my new frames. Please enter: Coastal.

My MO with glasses has been to make investments, because I take really good care of them and wear them for a long time. Back in 2009, I purchased a pair of black thick-rimmed Chanels. Thick rims were about to hit it big and I was on the cusp of the trend...they were nearly impossible to find! (Can you imagine that?!) At the time, I wasn't sure if they were too trendy for such an expensive purchase, but 7 years later, they're still going strong.

In early 2015, I took another plunge with my statement Tom Ford frames. I literally get compliments on them everywhere I go...without fail. They're so unique, trendy and classic...all at the same time.

Needless to say, I'm hesitant about throwing a new pair into my regular rotation, since they've quickly become my #1 accessory. However, Coastal brought their A-game with fabulous brands and unique options with affordable prices (contact lenses too). They even knocked the ball out of the park with these adorable RAEN prescription sunglasses...a luxury for us glass-wearing folk.

(The gold aviators have been my daily go-to...definitely make a note: aviators frames everywhere for fall!)
