What I Wore: The Celine Sunglasses


celine sunglassesHello there, first outfit post of 2017! It's been a bloody long time since I've shared one of these, hasn't it? I definitely want to create more fashion content this year as I find it really fun (plus I LOVE looking at how other people style stuff). Today's outfit post though is rather special as it features my first ever pair of designer sunnies. I know, I know, right!? I've never even owned a pair of Ray-Bans before! Truth is, I'm clumsy and quite often away with the fairies so I end up sitting on them or dropping them or breaking them in some other inelegant way - which is fine if they're £4 from Primark, but not so great if they cost a small fortune right?!

I wasn't convinced until these Celine beauts arrived a couple of weeks ago, but I was in love almost instantly. The quality is better, the lenses actually block the glare (which is, y'know, the official purpose of sunglasses...) and they just look so great on.

In fact, I'd go as far as to say that they're the accessory that elevates pretty much every single outfit - whether it's adding a bit of chic to a grungy leather jacket, or making that weekend trainer and jeans combo look a little bit cooler. I want to wear them every single day (and I haven't stopped wishing that the UK weather would brighten up and make that less weird...).

What do you think? Are you all about the high street or would you rather invest in a decent pair of sunnies?
