Every cloud...

So, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining and my silver lining is the fab pair of sunglasses you see here. I've recently had an appointment at the optician's and have been advised to wear UV sunglasses every day even when it's overcast. I have Drusen of the optic nerve which affects both eyes and means the vision can deteriorate over time. A healthy diet with lots of leafy green veg is recommended and protecting the eyes from UV light is vital. I've bought a couple of pairs of fab UV sunglasses and will have to put up with strange looks as I am seen round and about the island wearing shades no matter the weather. I have to say thank-you to Jade Dalby, my very sweet beautician in Truro, who recommended I look at the website for Quay Australia sunglasses. When I told her I was going off to Boots to find some sunglasses, she responded that a fashion blogger needs something much less standard and far more fabulous! Thanks must go also, to Matt and the guys at Afina hair salon in Truro who gave me a last minute haircut and pamper just before I flew off to Scotland a few hours later. Great cut and schmooze, boys!

And a final mention must be for these outrageously gorgeous rose gold brogues, the only pair in TK Maxx of any size which just happened to fit me. Talk about a Cinderella moment!

  1. Love this outfit Anna. The blue trim around the satchel is so very cute, and the gold brogues ... Wow! x

    1. Thank you Bo. How lucky was I to find these wonderful brogues? Oh the joy of shoes!

  2. I love the combination of the two windowpane patterns...and of course Metalic brogues....<3
    The rings add a great touch too.


    1. Thanks again Samantha. As you can see I'm a fan of a bit of sparkle and put that together with a pair of shoes I'm in heaven! xxx

  3. I am sorry to hear about your eye complications. But the flip side will be the ever growing collection of sunnies you'll be able to create. There are so many bloggers out there that we don't even know what their eyes look like--take for example Atlantic-Pacific... I am always so shocked when I actually see her eyes.

    Anna, this outfit is incredible! I love it. It's such a fun paradox. I've been wanting to try something like this out; you've done it expertly. You are a pro pattern player aren't you!!

    Score on the brogues too!

    Thank you for linking up to Style Story Link Up.

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

    1. Thanks Ann. Dressing up should be fun, and I do love playing around with patterns and sparkle, especially in shoes. Am still pretty much a blogging novice compared to the likes of you so I do have a lot to learn. For instance must go and find out about Atlantic-Pacific!
      Lovely to have your feedback.
