Look for Less | Ray-Ban Orange Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses

I’m obsessed with sunglasses. They are useful all year long in Southern California but since we moved to San Diego I’ve noticed that they are essential even December. I love Ray-Bans but the price point is usually over 150 bucks a piece. I don’t mind spending that much on sunglasses every once and awhile but I jump at the chance to find a nice pair at a significantly lower price.

Ray-Ban mirrored sunglasses come a variety of different colors and I’ve confessed my love for the blue mirrored version in the past but I haven’t seen an affordable alternative in any of the other colors. Until now! Nordstrom’s has a very similar pair of sunglasses for $40 vs. $170. Yeah!!
