The sun is coming out and that could only mean one thing: SUNNIES! Sunglasses are one key fashion piece that can set your outfit apart from the rest of the crowd. Not only are they a statement maker, but they are also a functional accessory piece. A lot of sunglasses are starting to resemble retro frames and lens shapes. For example, these Supreme sunglasses have the retro oval shape similar to wayfarers and feature clip-on lenses. These sunnies come in four different colors including the brown marble effect, black, and red. This is their first release of sunglasses for the brand. 

Along with the retro frame trend, round shaped glasses are also making a big comeback. These glasses by Juicy Couture highlight the timelessness and classic style these sunnies bring. Although these are not as bright in color, having key timeless pieces such as these frames are always key to have in your collection of sunnies.

My name is Geraldine Nicdao, a UC Santa Cruz '14 Banana Slug Alum. From day one, I was born and raised a U.S. Navy Brat and spent most of my life growing up in Japan. A few things that I absolutely love are steak, fashion, and travel. I am always striving to go beyond the cookie cutter and constantly defying everybody's expectations. One of my biggest accomplishments to date, would be finishing the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco 2013. Not many know this, but I also was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and so I've had my fair challenges balancing the life of a college student and the obstacles of health. My philosophy is: "work hard and play harder" because I believe that self care is important which includes rewarding yourself for the hard work that you do- "treat yo' self!". Looking at my Instagram will give you a bit of an insight to my fun and busy bee life. One of my current projects includes the #BangingBootyProject which is a document of my goals, efforts, and strides on my own health and fitness journey. Over the next few years, I am planning to pursue a second degree in Communications and PR/Marketing.
