Sunshine! It's been so nice seeing a bit more of that great big ball in the sky. And it's meant I've been able to put my new sunnies to good use. I won these Ray-Ban beauties through a Sunglasses Shop giveaway over on the fabulous blog - Burkatron. They arrived a couple of weeks ago just as I was beginning a week off work. Talk about perfect timing! Not only are this pair super bright in colour they also have a nice velvet finish, meaning the feel as good as they look. Since I wear the same pair of glasses pretty much everyday, sunglasses allow me to mix things up and be a bit more outlandish with my eyewear. This pair certainly fit that bill.

Since the sun was out, I decided to go for a full on tropical outfit to match my bright shades. Any excuse to get my Hawaiian shirt out. I paired said shirt with a simple blue skirt and light blazer but then added more bright shades with my accessories. I've had these Luna on the Moon hair slides for quite some time but hadn't found a way to wear them. After experimenting with some milkmaid braids I found the answer - just pop them in anywhere! Who doesn't love a bit of pom-pom to top off an outfit.

In another act of perfect timing, I found the best backdrop to use for photographing this colourful outfit. The day before Spex Pistols had been sharing photos online of some new graffiti art going up by the shop. The finished result was this Amazing Spectacles sign in big bold comic type. I love finding new artistic graffiti and it provides great backdrops for outfit photos (see here and here). Plus it adds interest and vibrancy to an area, without being too permanent. More of this sort of thing please!

Being in such close proximity to Spex Pistols it would have been rude not to pop in. I hadn't been in since the shop had it's refurb and it is looking mighty fine. There's now a mezzanine space which houses a neat little lensing lab and allows much more room downstairs for loads more glasses. The only thing is that more glasses means more choice. While looking around I found several beautiful pairs and feel head over heels for one set in particular. Seems that my sunglasses prize will ultimately lead me to spend more money on glasses. Ooops!
