Update Your Summer Style with Maui Jim

One of the fastest and easiest ways to update your summer style is with a pair of great sunglasses. You can be wearing the trendiest and most put-together outfit, but if your sunnies are outdated the whole look falls flat.

I’m excited to be partnering with Maui Jim as a brand ambassador this year, and today I’m styling a summer outfit inspired by my new favorite pair of shades.

Right now, the trend in sunglasses is go big or go home. The Maui Jim Orchid with their oversized plastic tortoise frames and ultra thin bronze reflective lenses are the perfect mix of form and function to update your look and protect your eyes in comfort and style.

Mine are the Tortoise with Peacock. How fun are these??? I love the surprise of the peacock blue on the inside. (And they actually match the park bench I was sitting on, which I didn’t even notice until I started editing these pictures. Too funny.)

For such large sunglasses, these are incredibly lightweight. This is due to the Maui Jim SuperThin Glass technology that is 20% thinner and lighter than standard glass. It also provides the best optics available so my view through these lenses is crystal clear.

When I tried on my first pair of Maui Jims last summer, the first thing I noticed was how clear and brilliant everything looked through their lenses. They have several different lens options available, and each has its own unique set of benefits.

These are the HCL Bronze lenses. They provide a beautiful warm tint and are ideal for everyday use. As with all Maui Jim sunglasses, the lenses feature their PolarizedPlus2 technology to shield your eyes from glare and harmful UV rays. That makes these great driving sunglasses as well as the ones you want to bring along when you’re going to be outdoors in bright sunlight for extended periods of time.

One thing I really like about this particular style is the embedded rubber nose pad. I’ve never seen that on plastic frames. It really helps these sunglasses stay in place, plus it’s more comfortable than the plain plastic. It’s just another example of how Maui Jim goes out of their way to think of every detail to make the user experience as enjoyable as possible.

For today’s outfit, I’m wearing a chambray tie-waist top with my favorite distressed white skinnies. I love pairing chambray and white for summertime; it’s so crisp and fresh.

This is the type of outfit I like to wear when I’m going to a casual gathering or a cookout on days that aren’t super hot. I’d swap out the jeans for shorts on really hot days. The gold sandals and straw bottom tote compliment this summery look, and my sunnies keep the whole look modern and on trend.
