Sunny Side Up!

We have been having the most amazing, sunny and warm weather in Belgium the past two weeks. I pulled out all my favorite sundresses and skirts and gave my legs that last bit of sunshine before the tights season arrives. While sunshine is fun, and I want to spend whole days outside soaking it up as much as I can, it’s also a bit annoying. You see, I don’t own any sunglasses. And I’m afraid that if I don’t get myself a pair soon, those squint-wrinkles around my eyes will stay there forever. Time to hit and hunt down some sunnies!

“The Bigger The Better” is not my motto when it comes to sunglasses. I personally prefer light, thinner frames in white, grey or tortoise. These four pairs above are my top picks from the Sunglasses selection, with the Persol one beeing my absolute favorite! 
Like most bloggers, I have a secret love for Ray-Ban. As for most, their Original Wayfarer is high up on my wishlist! As a redhead with pale skin I was thinking I’d go with a tortoise frame, but then I saw the wide selection of Wayfarers SmartBuyGlasses has and I found these to be really fun too!

I wear my prescription glasses about 90% of the time. So I couldn’t leave looking at SmartBuyGlasses’ selection of Eyeglasses too. Immediatly, I got drown to the Ray Ban Wayfarer again, but I also looked around a bit more and found these four pairs that I really liked!

I have been wanting a pair of what I call “secretary frames” for along time. They look so chique and sophisticated and would be a great match for my small collection of LBDs. Not to mention they would be perfect to sport on my internship, which will be an office job after all. D&G has a lot of models that fit my “secretary” label, but so do Prada and Guess!

Colour! Colour! Colour! While I always stay on the safe side when it comes to my glasses choosing only tortoise or black frames, my mom encouraged me to try something colourfull. The first pair by Boss Orange is definitely somthing I would go for, it’s red and has that typical nerd look that frames my face beautifully. Where the Boss is loud and has a trendy nerd look, The Armani frame has subtle colours and a sporty vibe. I’m diggin’ it
Oh boy, these are a lot of choices and I can only afford one pair of sunnies! Can you help me pick? Which one is your favorite? Should I go for colour or stay in the safety zone? Help!

  • the 3rd is the most beautiful for me

  • Oei je hebt geen zonnebril?! Amai dat lijkt me idd wel niet zo handig! Sinds ik lenzen heb zijn mijn ogen extra gevoelig en kan ik echt niet meer fietsen ofzo zonder zonnebril wanneer buiten de zon schijnt! Ik heb zelf zo'n fake Ray-Ban pilotenbril 🙂 Ik vond hem erg fijn, omdat hij ook erg dun en fijn is (ik heb het ook niet zo voor dikke zware brillen), maar helaas is hij kapot sinds vorige week (ben erop gaan zitten…). Dusja, nu ben ik ook wel op zoek naar een nieuwe zonnebril! Wss ga ik deze keer voor een echte RayBan pilotenbril gaan 🙂 Veel succes met kiezen haha! ♥

  • Some great sunglasses you've picked out there. If you're ever after any more please try

    We carry
    Alexander McQueen and Bottega Veneta sunglasses as well as many other brands.

    We also ship world wide!

  • I really love those emporio armani glasses as prescription. They're tame on the outside and wild on the inside.


  • First of all, did somebody undergo a blog redesign? I can't help but not that your blog looks different!

    I'm a redhead too and I think I can help you with this one – stay safe with the color choices. I too have wanted to do color but everytime I have, I've always gone back to safe browns and blacks. Good luck hunting!

  • Great post 🙂

  • i have to wear sunglasses…my eyes get super sensitive otherwise

  • Thanks for these recommendations…I really need to grab a pair of those nerdy specs!!


  • i love the idea of colored glasses – i always love when i meet people with stunning frames. my friend has red ones that are amazing on her. and sunnies – i stick with the same silhouette in different colors

  • like the first four most!!

  • love sunnies. They are such a must when you're in the sun…not just for fashion! =D

  • Ooh I love choosing sunglasses! Let us know what you choose :). I'm a glasses wearer too & I can't leave home without my prescription sunglasses (which, as I have the blogger-love for Rayban, are Wayfarers)! <3

  • Hello I'm new here. I love your blog and I'm following you on gfc.

  • I want to find some great sunglasses for myself, honestly. I have some semi-okay cheap-o ones, but I need real ones. Are you gonna flaunt whichever pair you choose? (:

  • I think you should defiantly go for color! I bought a bright red frame and every time I wear it I get an instant confidence boost!

  • I have RayBan Wayfarers and am sooo pleased with them. As for the colour – I rather stay in the safe zone so I have a black pair of sunnies, but they're red on the inside so they're something special – that's why I love Wayfarers!

  • I am always a huge fan of Wayfarers. They are classic.

  • You need to get some sunnies soon lady! I don't leave the house without a pair… and usually they are $10 cheapies from Target (because I am forgetful), but I recently WON an expensive pair in a blogger giveaway, and they are very amazing… amazing enough for me to never want to leave them! Happy sunglass hunting… and that sunny weather sounds great!
