OCNJ Vacation with Maui Jim

As a part of my ambassadorship with Maui Jim, I received several of their most popular women’s sunglasses styles to try out over the course of the year, and I brought my two favorites with me to Ocean City, NJ for our beach vacation last month.

I’ve been wearing my Orchid frames a lot, but recently I’ve started incorporating these Coco Palms sunglasses into my outfits and I’m obsessed. These are the Tokyo Tortoise frames with the Maui Rose lenses.

I love how the chic cat-eye tortoise shell frames add a touch of glam to my everyday outfits. Large plastic frames have been trending for some time, but they can be tricky to wear. These are the perfect size and shape for a narrower face.

At the beach, I was hyper aware of how the PolarizedPlus2 lenses enhanced my view. Even on cloudy days, my sunglasses helped me see more clearly and removed any glare from the sun on the water so I could enjoy the view of the ocean and read books on my kindle with ease.

Like all Maui Jim sunglasses, these are incredibly lightweight and durable, and I find them extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

We didn’t have the best weather on this vacation, but we tried to make the best of it. The kids spent a lot of time hanging out at the boardwalk, and we enjoyed the decks at our beach house when it was too chilly to be by the water. We spent the evenings reading and playing games.

We pretty much had the beach to ourselves a couple of the mornings, and it was so peaceful and relaxing to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the sand and water without people chatting and kids squealing all around us. Those were my favorite moments of the entire trip.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. Sometimes it takes getting away from the daily grind to force myself to slow down and relax and enjoy the view, and my view is never better than with my Maui Jims!

  1. We were in OCNJ yesterday and there were TONS of people chatting and children squealing! Of course we didn’t get there until 10am, and it was CROWDED! But, the weather was perfect and we had a great day! Love your suit, very flattering!! And your hat is adorable! Thanks for this post.

  2. The sunglasses are very sharp looking. You look fabulous in that swimsuit! If I were in need of one, I would consider that brand. We love going to Cape San Blas, FL because it’s geared more towards adults. The beach is gorgeous no there’s not all of the commercial tourist traps, which keeps the quantity of kids and noise to a minimum.

    I’m waiting for the AC guy to come, to hopefully really fix our central air. The highs will be back in the 90’s starting tomorrow, some really need it to be up and running for the weekend.

    Happy Friday eve!

  3. There is nothing like a beach vacation to give you a fresh outlook. I’m so sorry y’all didn’t have the best weather, but evenings with the kids and their friends playing games will be memories forever. ❤️

      1. Thanks! I like Athleta really well. I’ll check them out for something similar. I’m in need of a new cover up!!

  4. Such great pictures. You look beautiful. I can’t imagine doing photos of myself in my swimsuit but if i looked like you, I would. 🙂 Love the post. The sunglasses look great on you too. 🙂

  5. Once you wear Maui Jim sunglasses you’ll never be happy with other brands. I’ve had three pairs, one pair got destroyed when my son’s dog ate them.

  6. Vacationing in Rehoboth, DE. Used your pack list for packing and it was really helpful!! The beach was packed today!!!
