No regrets, do you know what that means

// Sunglasses: Dorothy Perkins // Playsuit: H&M // T-shirt: New Look //

Under normal circumstances, I'd probably shy away from glasses like this. Beautiful as they are, their aquamarine pop best suits the braver soul, and while I've always loved cat-eye frames, I'd no doubt plump for a safe, and retrospectively dull colour.

Send them beautifully wrapped in the post however, and I'm sure to give them a go.


I won these in Vicki's giveaway as I mentioned in my latest weekly roundup and my heart fluttered excitedly as soon as I saw them.

And then? Then I realised just how retro this style was, how difficult they'd be to pull off, and how, defeated, I'd probably end up keeping them safely tucked inside my sunglasses drawer [the result of a dangerous shade habit...I'm almost ashamed...almost].

Well stuff that.

I might not be ready to brave to wide-brimmed hat here just yet, but a pair of perfectly retro, wonderfully summery shades? Why not.

Now just to find the perfect classic convertible...

Danni they look awesome! And i'm exactly the same with both sunglasses and any form of headband/headscarf. They look pretty, I buy, I wear them in the safety of my flat, and then they get hidden away.
