Sunnies and Selfies

Sunglasses and travel go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Rain or shine, I never leave the house without one. What if the sun comes out after the rain and I didn’t bring a pair with me? Needless to say it is one of my travel essentials. I knew I wear sunglasses too much when family and friends put a pair on every time they imitate me. Do people even know what my eye color is anymore?

So I went through my photos and concluded that I wear sunnies in at least eighty-five percent of them. Since I have hundreds of photos and have narcissistic tendencies, I narrowed it down to selfies. Who says only Kim Kardashian has the right to love herself?

Sunglasses can make or break an outfit and a selfie. It can also protect your eyes from the sun apparently. So choose your sunnies carefully.

Here are my top favorite travel sunglasses selfies:
