Sponsored post: Springtime sun!

Today it's rather dreary and rainy and miserable around these parts, so I thought I'd brighten things up for me (and anyone else in the area) with a few highlights from Warby Parker's spring lines!

Piper frames from the Spectrum Sun line.

I first stumbled upon Warby Parker when I was shopping around for glasses last year. The company seemed a little too good to be true; I mean, they send you up to five pairs of glasses for free to try on, and you just send back what you don't want (and pay for what you keep, obvs). And with their super-affordable prices, I thought there had to be a catch. So I went to my regular eye doctor and paid an arm and a leg for a pair from him. Imagine my annoyance when I did some more research and realized just how sweet the company really is! Suffice to say, I know where I'm getting my next pair of glasses.

So when Warby Parker contacted me about a feature post on their eyeglasses and sunglasses, I was obviously pretty excited. (Sidenote/disclaimer: I was not paid or perked in any way for this post; I'm just excited to feature a brand that I like and am looking forward to trying personally.)

WP has three new lines to tout: the Spring 2014 collection has eight new shapes and six colors; the Spectrum Sun collection has nine pairs of new sunnies; and the Architecture for Humanity line features two new frames — when you buy either one, a portion of the proceeds goes to that organization AND a pair of glasses is donated to a person in need.

So, without further ado, here are my faves. I only wish I had a budget big enough to buy them all ;)

Reilly frames from the Spring 2014 collection.

Marcel, Spring 2014.

Finch, Spring 2014.

Fowler sunnies from the Architecture for Humanity line.

Aslin, Architecture for Humanity.

What do you think? Do you have any faves from these lines that I didn't mention here? Are you in the market for a new pair of shades now that sunshine is on its way, or are you sticking with tried-and-true faves from last year?
