My daughter spends a lot of time on the water. And as a long-time competitive rower, she knows firsthand how crucial a good hat and a proper pair of sunglasses are to protect against the punishing rays of the sun. Of course, she is a teenager, so that hat and sunglasses have to be incredibly cute, too!
Recently, we discovered the Retro Bamboo Wayfarer Sunglasses, pictured. She loves them because they have that vintage Wayfarer look made glamourous by another water-lover, John F. Kennedy.
These sunglasses are so stylish! The wood temple is made of bamboo, which gives them a cool, hipster vibe. And, the green frame adds a pop of color and personality (plus, she always knows which glasses are hers when her teammates dump their belongings in piles between races).
They are also incredibly lightweight. If you’ve ever worn glasses that were heavy, or pinched at the nose, you know what a headache they can be (literally!). Wearing these, even all day, is effortless.
Most importantly, they provide 100% UV protection, as well as anti-UVA anti-UVB. With the incredible amount of sun reflection off the water at practices, at races, and even just waiting around in between, this protection is essential.
They even come with a cute case and a cleaning cloth, both absolute necessities.
I thought that these glasses were well priced at $36.00. But, with Amazon Prime, you can score a pair for only $13.99. Plus, Susan Said… WHAT?! readers can receive an additional 10% off the purchase price! Simply use the coupon code: ZTONW624
So, what are you waiting for? Here comes the sun!
