Anouk Aimée wearing sunglasses in the film La Dolce Vita

As I mentioned in 14 Ways To Celebrate National Italian American Heritage Month, Italians wear sunglasses no matter what the season. At this time of year, the sun is at a low angle in the sky and can be blinding, especially when driving.

Keep your eye on the prize by wearing a stylish pair of shades.

Your #DolceVita action for this week: Wear Sunglasses

Express your inner la dolce vita while protecting your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays. Side effects include glamour, mystery, and an undeniable cool factor.

You can also use sunglasses to cover up tired eyes or when you don’t have time to put on mascara. I take glamorous walks in the park with sunglasses, lipstick and a pretty scarf. No one needs to know I just rolled out of bed. They make me feel like an Italian film star.

Show me your sunglasses by posting a photo on Facebook. Use hashtag #DolceVita so I’m sure to see it.
