One thing you cannot have too many of, over the summer, is sunglasses. I have lots and try to limit myself every year to buy just one new pair. I have sunglasses that I have had from when I was a teenager to ones I brought specifically for my honeymoon (and haven’t used since).

I thought I would show you my favs and let you know the best places to buy on trend shades…

My favourite shape is the cat eye. I think is never goes out of style, it makes a statement and looks so on trend. These black sunglasses with the gold edging I brought for my honeymoon 3 years ago and haven’t worn them since. They are too precious and I worry the kids will sit on them, they will get scratched or I might loose them in the sea or something. I brought them from ASOS. Their sunglasses are so affordable and really last. 

Best Tip – is always buy a sunglasses case – they are £1 from Primark. Stock up and always store your shades in them. The one thing I hate is scratched sunglasses – especially when I am driving. Also, they are great distractions for kids.

One of my favourite shops to buy sunglasses from is Monki. These chunky mocca coloured ones are from there and I wear them every year. They are fun and quirky and they are so stable and chunky they will not easily break or get damaged. 

I think you should always have a silly pair of glasses – just something that you can wear with a simple outfit like a white dress, denim cut ouffs or maybe a plain boho top. Nothing says boho then heart shaped sunglasses. £3 from Primark and I wear them every summer. 

Lastly, the ones I have worn a lot recently, on the school run, while shopping etc – the over the top cat eye from ASOS. They cost me £12 and were my new purchase this year. Great with hair up, hair down and really do go with everything. You cannot go wrong with leopard print. 

Enjoy your shopping. 

Much Love
