Little Miss Sunshine

This summer was a bit of a turning point for me. I finally understood what people see in sunglasses (metaphorically..).

I always had several pairs of sunnies at any given time but I never cared for them much. I also rarely had them with me which is why they never got much wear.

This year, I made a conscious note to myself to ensure that a pair of sunnies is always available in my bag. I ended up using the glasses times more than I would ever expect! Dublin is a much sunnier place than I thought ;)

I also bought a few pairs in styles that I wouldn't previously go for and realised what an amazing accessory I've been missing out on!

Since I finally 'get' the sunglasses and get enough use out of them, I started considering a purchase of a proper pair. I always thought designer sunnies are a complete waste of money but I may need to revisit that opinion...

Here're a few pairs in 4 different styles that I'm currently considering, any thoughts?

Aviator style:

Jimmy Choo at Optical Express

Thick frame:
Illesteva at Net-a-porter


Cat eye:

Bvlgari at Optical Express


Marc Jacobs at Asos


  1. ooooh the pink ones are my favorites!

    You can never go wrong with the cat eye sunglasses, they're fab :)

    Santenne of Crystallized Elements.

    gahhh, the net-a-porter ones are so fab but I wont get their money's worth before I inevitably sit on them :(

  4. Ah, sunglasses, the cheeriest accessory ever - you only ever feel better in sunglasses, never worse! And even here in overcast Ireland, sunglasses are still big fashion players. My vote goes to RayBan Aviators for everyday wear (so light yet so durable - mine, weirdly, have lasted years) and black cats' eyes for a slightly more chic, dramatic look. Enjoy the fun of your new discovery! Edie
