Shorts and Sunglasses

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely week!

Here was me today. The Current/Elliott shorts are one of my favourite purchases of late. I have shared these with you before and every weekend I give them an eye.

They are nicely baggy and distressed so I love pairing them with more tailored "done" pieces. I am not sure if it really goes but it feels very "me" :)



Shorts: Current/Elliott (Forever 21 has really good copies of these and the material is not a million miles away either!)
Shirt: Zara
Blazer: Topshop
Sunglasses: Prada Baroque
Shoes: Tory Burch
Bag: Celine

Now the sunglasses. Yes I was wearing them indoors for a small portion of time....and then I realised and blushed at the thought of how stupid I must have looked. Still, they are rather special.

These aren't new to the market. I remember The Blonde Salad featuring this Baroque style maybe 18 months ago and I found them interesting but also very, very weird. It definitely wasn't love at first sight.

Cut to about 4 months ago and I finally saw them in real life in Dubai and they looked pretty fabulous. Then lots of my favourite bloggers, including Tali, started featuring them. I got swept away and made a mental note to at least try them on.

Yes, there is something fantastical about them in a Willy Wonka kind of way but they are also sunglasses that seem to suit any face shape out there. They are big, round but also slightly angular, making the frame universally flattering and the curve detail on the arm is actually spectacular.




They come in a few shades now and I think mine is called tea. (The code, for anyone interested is SPR27N 55 22 KAL-1Z1 135 2N).

Now can someone please stop me going near any more sunglasses!

Many thanks

  2. Bahhhh LOVE those sunglasses! I've seen them in ads but only from the side. I love how they look from the front.

    I've also been into pairing baggy with tailored lately. Helps to feel a little more polished with that edgy/rebel feel ;)

    Hope you had a great Friday, have a fabulous weekend! Hopefully it's sunny in Dubai--it's raining and cold in Seattle :( booooo!

  3. They really do suit you but doubt they would do me any favours! Love your outfit...everytime you feature that Celine bag it fuels my lust a little bit more and forces me to contribute to the 'Celine Bag Fund'!

  14. Another amazing outfit! Your skin looks incredibly sun-kissed, and the crisp white shirt certainly doesn't hurt!
    May I obnoxiously request a faux-tanning post? Maybe a quick review of your fav products? (though, as i type this, i think i remember reading a post of yours when you said that the tan was from your time back home! if so, kudos on you for making that bad boy last this long!)

  15. May be an obvious question, but are those flats comfortable? I've seen them at shoe stores, but never tried them on. Do they give you any blisters or anything? :)

  45. I feel in love with these sunglasses months ago when I saw them at Nordstrom's. My luck I found the black ones at Neiman Marcus outlet under retail price so I had to buy it and it's in perfect condition but now I'm rethinking it, it might be too big and I'm debating if I should keep, return or sell? I don't know what to do.
