National Sunglasses Day

Hey Cuties,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Mine was full but it was good. Friday the kids had their own social activities so I enjoyed the silence at home. I also managed to finish up a DIY I’ve wanted to share with you for at least a month now. It isn’t that labor intensive; I’ve just not made time to do it. Saturday we attended a wedding and had a great time. Babe and I got all dressed up and color coordinated and stuff. Shout out to Mr. & Mrs. Pulos. Sunday I covered an event in the city {recap coming} then went to a cookout. Hello summer! This week is going to be a full one but it is going to be amazing, why? Because I’m black and real and magical and Jesse Williams told me so.

Today is National Sunglasses Day; did you even know that was a thing? I must admit I didn’t know it was a thing. I’m not surprise though because everything is a thing. I need to declare a nation #FatSnacks day since they are just handing out special days and such. Either way this is one I love although I didn’t know it existed. hahahaha. Maybe I should look at Some nice classic-contemporary polarised sunglasses given the occasion.

National Sunglasses Day

On my way to a wedding.

Sunglasses for me are a must have. Matter fact I was recognized by a Cutie at Saturday’s event because of my sunglasses. These particular sunnies as I sometimes call them have become my signature. They go hand and hand with my signature Ruby Woo red lip. In the picture above I was all kinds of cute in my Mother’s Day outfit I’ve been having a fit to wear. I knew I was saving it for the wedding but it seemed to take forever. I do have on my signature lip in the picture but I felt like these round wired sunglasses completed the look. I only spent five sweet bucks on them. SCORE!

Sunglasses at the Capitol.

I shared my trip to Capitol Hill with the IAB HERE. On that trip I wore these sunglasses. I love a big pair of sunglasses, especially because my face is so little. Moms ‘N Charge is all cute in her aviators.

Kia Optima 4 National Sunglasses Day

Sunglasses with my Man-Child

I’ve shared my addiction with my children. My son has about three pair of sunglasses; I’ve been buying them for him since he was a baby. Because babies and sunglasses are adorable. Now that he is getting older he is falling into his own style with my influence a bit. It is fun to see it all play out though. I mean he is learning from the best, his Dad and I are fly. This picture is from our Kia Optima Review HERE.

Managment Tips for the Busy Mom 3 National Sunglasses Day

Sunglasses with a cute dress

Because I have the addiction I don’t pay a lot for my muffler. The most I’ve ever spent on a pair is $20. Things happen; they get broken in the bottom of your purse. The lens gets scratched because you’ve dropped them. An arm falls off, if you have babies they will snatch them clean off in one swoop. If you have a toddler they like to play dress up with your favorite pair. As those toddlers become teens they like to “borrow” without asking. See, what I can’t do is lose my ish because something happened to my $300 designer glasses. If you do, that is cool. This is a judge free zone. I have plenty of vices, expensive sunglasses just aren’t one. This picture is from my Management Tips for the Busy Mom HERE.

Sunglasses with my girl.

Because I can show them better than I can tell them my girl is learning to style her sunglasses. She only has two pair and I still have to remind her to keep them on her face. Baby steps though, this picture was taken after her Shoe Tying Class.

MimiCuteLips 8 National Sunglasses Day

Sunglasses during a lunch stroll.

These are my signature bow glasses. How can you not feel amazing wearing these? I was strolling around DC on my lunch hour when I snapped this picture. I frequently go to lunch with two of my male co-workers and they hate the attention these sunglasses bring. I’m always stopped by men and women to dish on how cute they are. Yassss!

Whatever your style is say it with your face and protect your eyes. This is an old picture of Babe and I, we were hanging out at the Harbor in Baltimore.

Sunglasses and head wraps.

You can rock a very simple outfit and kick it up a notch by adding a fly pair of shades. I have the addiction… I was trying to grow out my hair and it wasn’t cute so I put a wrap on. I’ve since aborted THIS mission.

Sunglasses in Miami with the girls.

I have at least 20 pair of sunglasses, because cute. Like me they speak to my personality or a mood or a feeling I want to give. They say something without me even opening my mouth. YASSSSSSS! This picture is from my 36th birthday.

BRCA Testing 7

Sunglasses for the Cure with my Mom, Sister and Baby Girl.

These sunglasses are one of my favorite; they are trimmed in MimiCuteLips pink. I think I picked them up while in New York so years back. This picture is from the interview I did about the BRA-CA testing for breast cancer. Mommy is a survivor.

Sunglasses at Nikki Beach

I got these while in Miami last year. I think I only wore them twice before they became a casualty in my purse. The arm broke off and I was pissed. They were less than $20 but we needed more time together. Mirrored lenses are fun and you can use them as a mirror when needed. This picture is from a Miami Recap HERE.

Hike It Mama 4

Sunglasses on top of a mountain while hiking with childhood friends.

I mean plain round frames are cool but when you mix in a little swirl action on the arms they are even better. I know these are a designer dupe. I just can’t recall which one; but a look for much less either way. This picture is from my Hike it Mama Event I co-hosted last year.

This is not current, but I had just cut all of my hair off. I was feeling all cute and stuff so I put on some lipstick and a cute pair of sunglasses. I love the purple color, I’m a pink kind of gal but they totally work.

    I love my shades as well. My eyes are extremely sensitive to the sun so I can’t be without them. My vice is designer sunglasses. I wish it wasn’t. At least I know if we get strapped for cash I can sell them!

    • MimiCuteLips

      That is tough, I have a co-worker with the same issue and he shells out good coins for eye protection. I bet your stash is nice too, that is true. Hello, vintage.

  12. The Cubicle Chick

That same day she brought the 1rst “lost” pair to me so I am now the proud owner of 2 pairs of the same sunglasses lol. If anything your post has shown me I need to step out of my sunglasses box I’m in and buy some new ones lol.

  16. Eva

    I just laughed out loud at “I don’t pay a lot for my muffler.” You did pull that from your memory of the 80’s/90’s commercial, right? I have a lot of sunnies, but I don’t really wear them unless I must because I still wear prescription glasses, no contacts.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Eva, I totally did. I love when yall get my quotes. hahahahaha Girl you need some sunnies with your Rx in them.

  17. Stacie

    You always wear the best sunglasses! My face and head are too big for some styles, so I have to stick with cat eyes or regular ones.

  18. krysta

    I only knew it was sunglasses day because Snapchat told me! I love their fun filters. Great collection of sunglasses photos!

  19. Michele d

    I have many pairs that I love to rock while outdoors. Sunglasses are a must for me. Sun is to bright here in Florida.

  20. Joanna

    Love your style. I have maybe two pairs of sunglasses. One if prescription, so I try using them more than the other. It’s hard for me to find one that fits my face.

  21. Tia @ financiallyfitandfab

    You are so smart to not overspend on sunglasses! My favorite sunglasses are a pair of red Raybans. Luckily they were a gift but I was mortified when they got scratched!

  22. Candice

    Those bow glasses are fantabulous!! I wonder how they would look on my long face? This makes me wanna shop for sunglasses asap.

  23. Marielle Altenor

  28. Kara | Kay's Ways

    Love little man’s style! I’m still salty about some Gucci shades my oldest broke some years back now I’ve definitely began to take the more affordable approach myself. I’ve learned to place my good ones in really high places though lol.

  29. Bijee

    You always look so cute in your shades. that picture up at the tops is my absolute fav!

  30. Jay |

    Well, yes….you sure do have quite the collection. I use to have a lot more sunnies than what I do but I tossed them. The styles no longer suited me. I’m now in to mirrored ones. I will up my inventory soon.

  31. Sheena

    Okay, can we talk about the fabulous dress you wore to the wedding? OMG, it’s to die for! I only have two pair of sunnies, but I only wear one by Talbots. I got them at a conference and just love them.
