Ahhhh, sunglasses–a mom’s best friend. They are a relatively inexpensive accessory that covers our tired eyes when we don’t have five minutes to put on our concealer. To find out what styles are a must-have for the upcoming summer, Breezy Mama walked into Hobie Sports–a surf shop that is oh-so-much-more. Carrying everything from TOMS Shoes to exquisite jewelry to the most adorable housewares, it’s a perfect place to stop in for a gift. Hobie Store Manager, Courtney Bucho, who gets to see all the latest styles, gave us her picks for summer.
