The month of June provides great honeymoon weather throughout Europe. So it was a no-brainer when Andrew and I decided to take a whirlwind 5 day mini-moon road trip around Tuscany and Northern Italy!
I mysteriously broke my sunglasses about a month before our planned departure date. Okay, it actually wasn’t a big mystery because the sunglasses I bought were from a corner store in Portugal for €5. They had the words ‘Ray-Berri’ printed on the side … need I say more?!
I needed something that would last for a few weeks, and I definitely got what I paid for with those sunglasses.
Shortly thereafter, I was approached by AC Lens to see if I would review their sunglasses. I jumped at the opportunity, as I obviously needed new shades and because we were headed to Italy in the middle of summer – meaning lots of wine, cheese, and SUN.
Get to Know AC Lens
Who is AC Lens you may ask? They are one of the fastest growing optical suppliers in the world. They offer full-service, direct delivery on a range of sunglasses, contact lenses, eyeglasses, reading glasses, and eye care accessories.
They also provide an amazing return policy: up to 365 days from the date of purchase to return your items and free return shipping. A great return policy like that is nice to have when buying sunglasses online. Unless you already know the brand and shape that you want, it can be hard too choose the correct shades without trying them on first.
Selecting Stylish Sunglasses
I have to say I usually go for the over-sized, black, Jackie-o type look. This time around I wanted to try sunglasses that are a little more sporty.
After researching popular brands and styles, I stumbled across Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer. Upon further investigation, I found out that these sunglasses are constructed in a way that they fold up into a compact style, making them practical for travel and portable storage.
They sounded so handy for our upcoming mini-moon that I placed my ordered right away with AC Lens.

Wearing new sunglasses; somewhere on the road from Milan to Florence!
In my opinion, these fold up Ray-Ban’s are the best portable sunglasses for honeymoon travel or any vacation travel for that matter. Both pairs are super comfy and fit very well. They are especially handy for pool side wine tasting in the late afternoon Tuscan sun!
I also ordered Ralph by Ralph Lauren as pictured below. However, since I do have a larger sized head these particular sunglasses are a little too small for my face. No problem sending them back though, since AC Lens has such a fantastic return policy.
