High Street Spring Sunnies


It's rare that I'll ever find a style of sunglasses that completely suit me. It's difficult to pin down, but apparently I just have a bit of a weird shaped... face? I've strangely ended up with a tiny face, meaning glasses like aviators are a complete no-no (this pains me no end, they look so cool). The one pair of sunglasses that suit me are my dad's 20 year old Ray Ban Wayfarer II's which, to tell you straight, are worth more than my life. 

The hunt was on for a cheap pair of high street sunnies that wouldn't break my bank (or my heart) if I dropped them/sat on them/inadvertently flung them off of the top of my head. Although the cheapest option, I can never trust buying sunglasses online as I just can't get a good grip on how big or small they'll be on my face, or whether they'll make me look like a bug-eyed mess. Low and behold, my local Topshop had the answer to my prayers.

Topshop - £16.00

I ended up trying on every single pair of shades that Topshop had to offer before I came across these - because naturally, they were the pair I tried on last. Admittedly, they weren't the cheapest in the world at £16.00, however good old student discount brought them down to £14.40, which I could bring myself to part with. 

They're a gorgeous peachy colour with a similar coloured lens - something I never thought I'd go for! They fit my face like a dream, they're a unique, quirky shape and I love them to pieces. 


They also came with a free transparent case and matching cleaning cloth, from which you could choose purple, orange, or yellow. The orange and yellow were bright neon, and kind of clashed with the peachy glasses, so me being forever picky went with the purple. 

All this time I thought I'd be stuck wearing the same Wayfarer style of sunnies for the rest of my life, but branching out on the hunt for something new really payed off. I feel so much better knowing I have a little pair of knock-around glasses to cart around with me when I don't want to risk taking out the Ray Bans.

I can't seem to find this exact pair on the Topshop website, so head into store if you want to hunt them down!
