Greetings and happy hump day! Since technically I shared two summer outfits yesterday, today I’m taking a break from 21 Days of Summer Fashion to share a Father’s Day gift idea from Maui Jim.
When it came to choosing a father for my kids, I hit the jackpot. Not that Paul’s parenting skills were at the forefront of my mind when we were dating, but I knew instinctively that he would be an awesome dad when the time came.
You see, he’s the fun parent. He keeps things light when I’m moody, entertains the kids when they’re bored, and comes up with fun things to do together as a family; but he also makes sure the kids know who is in charge.
He’s not the type to try to avoid the “dirty work” either. When the kids were younger, he was always willing change a diaper or get up with a sick child during the night, and he took on most of the taxi duties as they got older. He was also the primary driver’s ed instructor . . . but maybe that’s because I was the co-pilot when our son took out the garage door. #ooops
In addition to all of that, he can fix practically anything. It’s been a wild ride at times, but there’s no one I’d rather be on this parenting journey with than him.
Father’s Day is just a few weeks away, and along with that, we will be celebrating a new parenting milestone — our oldest child is graduating from high school! It’s definitely a big deal and deserving of an extra special celebration.
I’m sure many of you also have husbands and fathers you want to honor this Father’s Day, and being that it’s the beginning of summer, a new pair of shades makes a great Father’s Day gift.
These polarized sunglasses have rectangular silhouette with metal and rubber arms that are comfortable and flattering, and I particularly love the blue mirrored lenses. They have the same amazing color enhancement and clarity as all other Maui Jim lenses, but they give any pair of frames an instant cool vibe.
These frames also come in gloss black and tortoise, but we chose the Stormy Grey, which I really like on Paul. They have a slightly matte finish, and several shades of grey create a subtle pattern for interest.
Another new style we like is the Barrier Reef Polarized Wrap Sunglasses. Paul finds this wrap style particularly comfortable, and he also likes the neutral grey lenses because they feature the highest available light reduction for a view with the richest colors and sharpest contrast.
I also really like the frames on these — the black with silver and grey goes great with his hair color.
As with all Maui Jim sunglasses, they’re ultra lightweight for supreme comfort, and both pairs have Maui Jim’s SuperThin Glass and PolarizedPlus2 lenses, which provide a crisp, clear view whether you’re driving to work or taking in a scenic view.
If you’re looking for a special gift for one of the men in your life this summer, take a look at all of Maui Jim’s newest arrivals. You can filter your results by frame, lens, color, and gender to find the perfect pair.
