Sun's Out.. FUN's Out?! + Giveaway

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed, however, are mine and that of The Caro Diaries. 

Forget sun's out, guns out.. it's all about the fun this summer! Especially with the newest addition to my summer fun collection.

I'm a big sunglasses girl. It's actually the first thing I gravitate towards in any store, and I'm obsessed with sunglasses. I tried on these darling Tom Ford shades months ago, left the store without them, and haven't found them since - and trust me, I've been looking online and in every sunglasses store that I see. I'm also kinda maybe totally obsessed with Ray-Ban, and love my boyfriend wayfarers - they're oversized and perfect! (PS. this is totes not a Ray-Ban sponsored post, but hey there RB if you wanna hit me up, you know where to find me!)

So now that it's summer and my sunglasses reside on my face 24/7, I thought it would be the perfect time to add a pair of croakies to my life. Yes, croakies, aka sunglass straps. So when Gobi Straps reached out to work with me, it was perfect timing and I was super excited to review one of their products.


Gobi was actually born out of a time of struggle - a time where we had to choose between our eyes and our beers. You see, the makers of Gobi decided one fateful summer day on the beach that they wanted to run and play free without their sunglasses falling off, and enjoy a beer (or two or eight) at the same time. What do we do, they must have shouted - or that's how I'm imagining it in my head. Alas, Gobi was born and so the combination of a sunglass strap and a bottle opener came to life, and we have been happy ever since.


I'm a very simple girl. All I want are functioning sunglass straps, but bonus points if they're cute, and Gobi takes the cake! They have chevron, and gingham and plaid, oh my! They even have a seersucker sunglass strap collection, which I without a doubt indulged in, and just in time for the 4th, a patriotic collection: yes, you're seeing right - american flag sunglass straps.. amazing, isn't it? (or so I assume, I'm not American soooo.. #awks)

They sent me a pair from the seersucker collection to review, try out and keep all for myself - and this thing isn't going anywhere because I'm obsessed with it! I'll preface it and say if your sunglasses are a little thicker, put a pencil or pen in the croakie holes for 5 minutes, and it'll stretch out a little bit more to give some room to allow them in easily. As you can see in my photos, I didn't figure that out until after I took them - but I'm teaching you, and that's all that counts!

Actually, just kidding. The only thing that counts is the fact that these are all under $20.. yes, $20! I've spent $20 on a lot less, I'll tell ya that!


So, thanks to Gobi, I'm giving a lucky reader their very own pair, just in time for the summer fun! Head over to Gobi Straps and choose one out right now, because the odds are very much in your favor! 

Good luck! The giveaway runs until next Thursday 26th at 11:59pm!
