DSC01918Every girl has that go-to pair of sunglasses she¬†grabs after a night of too little sleep (whether that is attributed to an all night study session or one too many glasses of wine is irrelevant ūüėČ ) Like good lighting and¬†Instagram filters, giant sunnies are always your friend on these mornings. Although, it didn’t really occur to me how¬†large and in charge¬†my favorite Tory Burch pair really are until I went to edit these photos, and an experience from earlier today dawned on me. I was wearing this very pair as I strolled into business class ready¬†to face¬†my¬†exam, when I ran into my professor in the hall. My¬†friendly (more like downright jovial, considering it was before 8am) “Good morning!” was met with an awkward dead pan¬†before¬†she finally said, “Oh hi. I didn’t recognize you with your…sunglasses on.” Now, I’m not sure exactly what was supposed to fill that beat between “your” and “sunglasses”, but after seeing¬†them¬†in the¬†images from today’s post, the phrases “massive, excessive, and paparazzi proof” all come to mind. My (very sweet) 70 year old professor may not agree with my accessory¬†choices, but I love these sunglasses¬†no matter what. (Confession: Mika actually chewed a chunk¬†off the ear piece last week and I still haven’t stopped wearing them!)

As for the rest of today’s ensemble, I’m pretty excited about the circumstances under which this¬†top and pair of¬†skinnies¬†became mine. As I’ve mentioned before, my sister works for Anthropologie and I happily reap the benefits of a family discount. I carry a¬†card that allows me to receive 25% off all regular price purchases and 40% off regular price and sale¬†items a few times per year.¬†Employee appreciation, as they call it, just passed and I was able to snag these puppies for a full 70% -SEVEN ZERO- off their original price tag. Too¬†fun! I’ve already based many different looks around both pieces, but thought I should feature the¬†extra bonus that I can wear them together in one outfit, as I did here.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week, I can’t believe it’s almost the weekend. I feel like such an old woman when I comment on how fast time flies, but it really is passing so. darn. quickly! Also, head over to¬†the Look What I got link up party I joined over at Penniless Socialite¬†as well as Simply Just Lovely to check out some other awesome bloggers. ūüôā
