Sunny side up

Light wash denim jacket - Primark
Pink retro sunglasses - c/o Sunglasses shop
Floral silky tee - Primark
Black flowing maxi skirt - c/o New Look
Black and gold suedette pointed pumps -  Asos via Leather Lane market

I was contacted by the Sunglasses Shop to see if I wanted to road test a new pair of sunnies. Despite the fact we haven't been seeing very much sun I said yes please! As with my glasses in the last post I went for a retro feel. I love the light tint of the glasses but it was just a shame that they didn't come in a case - only a plastic bag. But I do have plenty of cases knocking around I can always use. The Sunglasses Shop not only sells designer sunglasses but also have plenty of cheap sunglasses to choose from. My pair were a bargain £20. Next on my list is a pair of Ray-Ban Sunglasses so I better start saving my pennies!

I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad think that an Asos seconds stall have appeared at Leather Lane Market selling shoes. At £5 each it's very hard to resist! I treated myself to this pair and a beautiful pair of pinky red high heels. I feel it's the start of a downward spiral.
