Living in the Sunshine State, protecting my eyes from the sun is top priority for me. I’ve been religiously wearing sunglasses as long as I can remember. You can’t be out in the Florida sun very long before you reach for a pair!
In the past I’ve just grabbed an inexpensive pair from Target or Walmart (I’m bad about losing them or throwing them in my purse where they get ruined), but we are about to live on the water, so I knew I needed to get serious about proper eye wear.
My friends at Sunglass World in Destin listened to my concerns and wants and helped me select the perfect pair of polarized sunglasses.
These gorgeous polarized Costa Aransas in Shiny Ocean Tort. I’m in love!
I just adore the large acetate lenses and the hint of blue and green in the classic square frames. I’ve come to realize that my face needs big frames.
So what’s the deal with polarized sunglasses anyway? Polarized glass eliminates glare and helps reduce eye fatigue, stress on the eyes, and headaches from squinting. It’s certainly great around the water (for fishing and boating), but it’s great for every day driving, too. Ever stared into oncoming traffic only to be blinded by the glare from cars? Polarized glasses will help! Try on a pair and you will definitely notice a difference.
I wore my new Costas all over Key West- fishing, by the pool, riding bikes, and even just lounging on the beach. They are super light-weight and comfy and made the bright tropical colors pop without straining my eyes.
If you are local to Destin or will be visiting the area, check out Sunglass World in Destin Commons. They have a huge selection of Costas, Maui Jim’s and more and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They even let you try on sunglasses outside so you can truly see the difference between lens colors. And of course they’ll happily adjust your frames to get the perfect fit.
