Guest Post: Ethical Sunglasses Roundup, Cameron Bruns

Stylish Ethical Sunglasses

Since Tom’s launched their “one-for-one” eyewear line, ethical shades have been all the rage. Now it’s easier than ever for do-gooders to look as chic as Jackie O. Whether you’re ready to splurge, or just need to grab a backup pair of sunglasses, there is an eco-savvy and socially responsible option to fit your needs. Here are my favorite 5:


TOM’S Sandela in Tortoise, White, and Light Blue. $119. One-For-One. [For every pair purchased, Tom’s donates a pair of prescription glasses, eye surgery, or medical treatment to someone in need]


The Hollywood by Humps… Clear with mirrored lenses. $29.69. One-For-One [For every pair purchased, a pair of prescription glasses is donated to someone in need]


112 by Eco Optics in gold. $160. Made with 95% recycled materials.


Canby by Schwood. Handcrafted in the U.S. by sustainably harvested wood. $135. Schwood also makes a line of sunglasses from old skateboards!


Love Thy Neighbor by Westward\\Leaning. Black with inlayed chaquira beads. $275. For every pair purchased, a donation is made to Love Thy Neighbor Mexico, a nonprofit whose mission is to educate Americans about violence in Mexico caused by the U.S.’s demand for illicit drugs.

Heat Wave

In honor of the start of summer, I thought I would post some of my favorite beach pics. It has been so HOT on Nantucket and its not even July!

I need to stock up on my sunnies - good thing Knockaround is sponsoring the Summer Soiree this year!

Jack Rogers x Quadrille

Hello summer staple!

I usually stick to the classics when it comes to Jack Rogers - but after seeing the adorable offerings from the Quadrille collection... my summer Jacks are going to be a lot more colorful.

Want more Quadrille? I am not the only one obsessed with their fabrics. Check out this blog post by one of my favorites - Kelly Market.

Nantucket Wedding

Apologies to my readers... I have not been posting as frequently as I would have liked to! With the move back to Nantucket, I took a hiatus from blogging and spent more time away from my computer, which is never a bad thing! That said, I have taken on a new adventure as a style writer on Nantucket. Check out my new post on the Nantucket blACKbook - Holly Finigan and I have a lot of great things in the works - so stay tuned!

Here are some pictures from my latest column - "What to Wear to... a Nantucket Wedding," styled by Diane Firsten.

Would love to know what everyone thinks! Let me know if you want to see more of these types of posts on my blog.

Naughty & Nice

I can't help it. Day 3 of my Blue Print Cleanse and I have food on the brain. I love juicing, but I miss chewing!

Here's a little "taste" of what's on my mind right now:



Here's a warning for whoever gets between me and my venti iced coffee at Starbucks tomorrow morning...
