47







Proenza Schouler top (similar), Karen Walker skirt, 'Ally-Jean' sunglasses c/o AM Eyewear, Gorjana bracelet, ASOS belt (similar)


Essentials. I'd say it's pretty undeniable that sunglasses are an essential piece in anyone's wardrobe. While they may get a bit more face-time in the summer, they are just as necessary in the winter months to protect our eyes from the sun.

The lovely folks over at AM Eyewear were kind enough to send me a pair of sunglasses from their latest collection, Riviera Rebellion. Not only are they designed by hand, but they are crafted by hand in a process that can take up to 14 hours, using Mazzachelli acetate - a material that molds to the face and allows for a bespoke fit. This kind of commitment to quality is something that I both admire and appreciate, as it is an indication of a well-made product.

I tend to favor classic shapes and cuts in interesting prints above all else, and these sunglasses in tortoise shell fit the bill perfectly. With my European adventure a month or so off, it's good to know that I can tick off the sunglasses box on my packing list.

  2. I like the combination of the skirt and the thin belt. It reminds me of a belted Carven dress I saw recently. The sunglasses are so cute with the subtle tortoise shell design, I really like them!

  11. Those sunnies are great! I need new ones and always look at the tortoise shell but end up going for the safe (boring!) option of black. And that skirt looks so comfy yet stylish xx
