Friday Finds: Karen Walker Sunglasses

It seems like the older we get, the more important it becomes to take care of ourselves and our vision should definitely be at the top of the list. I not only want a pair of sunglasses that are stylish and on trend, but I also want a pair that will give me the most protection from the sun. Since most of us cannot splurge on every pair of sunglasses (and we all need options when it comes to sunglasses), I have found a few "look for less" options for this summer. This post will feature a few of the most popular Karen Walker Sunnies! However, I would recommend checking out the UV protection that each pair offers before purchasing them if you want the best for your eyes.

Karen Walker Sunglasses for Less
Karen Walker Number One Shades vs.  Amazon Wayfarer Shades
 Karen Walker Harvest Shades vs. Amazon Rounded Shades
Karen Walker Anywhere Shades vs. Amazon Bold Circle Shades
Karen Walker Anytime Crazy Tortoise Shades  vs. Anthropologie Ava Tortie Shades   

If you have been on Instagram lately, you have probably seen the Karen Walker Anytime Crazy Tortoise look-alikes from Anthropologie a few times. I finally gave in and ordered them, however, they are on back-order until the third week of June. Although, I am thinking they will be worth waiting for! I splurged earlier this year on a new pair of polarized Ray Bans that I have been getting a lot of wear out of so unless I find a pair I cannot live without, I will stick to look for less options for the rest of the season. It also allows me to spend more on other items like clothing which is a win in my opinion!

What do you think of the looks for less above?
Will you splurge or save on these?

P.S. Today is the last day to enter the My Happy Place Shop Giveaway!

P.P.S I am very honored to be featured as one of Friday's Five, go check it out!

  1. I have such a difficult time spending more than $40 on sunnies because I break them or lose them so often! Thanks for the great choices! I will be checking these out! I LOVE your blog! Susan

  3. Love these looks for less! The moment I leave my place, sunnies are on my face. I cannot survive without them...I blame my incredibly sensitive eyes and their ability to double as cute headbands. However, the summer I went through 5 pairs (breaking, getting lost, etc.) has scarred me for the time being and now I am reluctant to spend more then $15 on them, hence my adoration of your picks!!

  15. Great picks! I really like the last pair (the save pair!). I am so rough on my sunglasses that I refuse to spend more than $20 on a pair.

  17. Thank you, Lauren! I'm still waiting for the last pair to arrive, I am hoping that they look cute on after waiting a month to get them! I try to make a point to be super careful with mine, but even then they still get scratched sometimes :(

  18. I love Karen Walker sunglasses but just have a hard time spending so much on a pair of sunglasses. Most of the time I forget to even take them with me when I head out. I happen to see the Anthro ones on Instagram last week and went and ordered them. You aren't the only one (im)patiently waiting until the ship! They are exactly what I've been looking for in a KW alternative. Great job finding those bargain picks.

  19. I love KW sunnies too, but don't own any for the same reason! I received an email this morning that the Anthro ones have shipped, so excited!! I just hope that they will look cute on after waiting over a month to get them. Thanks!
