My Love For Sunglasses

lorna burford LNA lace up sweater outfit

I know some of you might be thinking ‘why is she writing about sunglasses when it’s Christmas?’ and I can tell you, that’s because I’m always thinking about what new pair will be perfect for the coming Summer! I’m sure most of you know (if you’ve followed me for years) that I have quite a collection of sunglasses, ranging from high street brands to designers like Prada and Ray-Ban, with Ray-Ban being the brand that I own the most of (somewhere around 10 pairs!) and I can still never get enough!

I never used to like sunglasses all that much when I was younger as I couldn’t find ones that suited my face, but then I came across the aviator style and it was perfect, so much so that I own quite a few different colours in the aviator frame. I’ve since branched out and tried rounder lenses as well as angled cat eye styles and I adore them. I never knew how much I would like all these different sunglasses frames, which is why I have ended up with so many. I’ve put some of my favourite pairs in this blog post from previous outfit posts, so you can see how I wore them, plus I’ve included a wish list for Summer which you can see just below! I hope you like it!




I was recently introduced to Perfect Glasses so I’m excited to collaborate with them on this blog post. Not only do they stock a great selection of branded frames, they also have their own regular glasses as well, with great prices. The company has been going since 2009, and is one of the largest providers of prescription glasses online and sunglasses in UK. They have over 1000 frames to choose from, both affordable as well as premium brands. You can even choose to have prescription sunglasses, so if you are a glasses wearer, you don’t have to miss out on having branded pairs to block the sun out!

Since I’m not a glasses wearer though, I have my sunglasses wish list above! I’ve chosen 4 pairs that I think would be absolutely perfect for next year as I’m branching out even more. The tortoise Fendi frames are gorgeous and remind me of my TRIWA pair that I have, since I adore the round frames. I then love the nude, thick, plastic frames of the Oxydo sunglasses as I think they’re more quirky and make a statement, so I could see them looking great with some floral dresses. Third is some sparkly Marc Jacobs sunglasses with a cat eye shape to them which I think are incredibly unique, plus they’re feminine too which is something that lacks in my sunglasses collection. Then finally, the Illuminati pair of designer sunglasses is a little more out there for me, not something I would usually choose, but I love the black and gold rounded frame with the metal bars across the top. I’m not sure if they would suit me, but I can only try, right?

– So, out of the sunglasses I own myself, which pair do you like the most? And have any of you got any frames on your wish list as well for next Summer? Check out and let me know!

    Sunglasses are good for you. Not only do they guard your eyeballs from Massive Radiation, but they suggest that someone gorgeous is behind them. (Which in your case obviously is true.)

    I loved the Illuminati and the Fendi pairs, from your wish list, dear Lorna! But I loved all the colorful glasses you showed, purple, blue ones, red, wow! You look lovely, I did love the mirrored glasses! I am a glasses and contact lenses wearer, and I have many sunglasses pair bought in an impulse – but seldom wear them. It’s because when I put the glasses on, I feel I don’t see things well. πŸ™ But anyway, I go on loving sun glasses! Hope you have a nice week!

      Oh that’s why I think prescription sunglasses would be really good for you! Have you tried them? πŸ™‚

    You’re absolutely right about the need for sunglasses year-round Lorna! Winter sun can also be harsh, and I’m always prepared with my sunglasses when the sun comes out, to prevent the eye area from getting lines! Plus it’s really fun just to dress up with them and try out different frames! I love all the sunglasses you’ve shown from your extensive collection, especially the one with purple lenses! You look fabulous, and thanks for bringing Perfect Glasses to my attention!

    Lots of love Saba xx

    I think those lovely pink tinted ones have to be the winners. πŸ˜€

    Well if we get a lot of snow combined with low sun this winter you might need to wear sunglasses some days. πŸ˜‰

      Might do! Gotta stop that glare off the white snow! Ha ha!

    I prefer the second and the third pair of sunnies. The choice of a good pair of sunglasses is really important: it can either make or break someones appearance

      It can, it’s crazy isn’t it?!
