Spectacular Specs and Passion For Fashion LINKUP!

 Happy Friday folks!! Lately i've been giving my peepers a break from constant contact lens wearing. I always shy away from glasses but when MyOptique asked if i would like to try a pair of designer glasses from London Retro i literally took two days to decide..all their frames are soooo good! Exactly my style, retro, funky and fun. I could have easily picked 7 pairs  one different for each day, ha!
I picked this classic black frame as i wanted a pair i could wear to work and look smart and go with everything, and for me, they do exactly that! So pleased!
MyOptique were also super kind and put my (blind as a bat) prescription in for me too.


 This outfit is kind of a mixture of a lot of my favourite pieces. Orla Kiely Scarf, an easy denim shirt dress and my seychelles mustard heels. Simple but effective i find!


 The Lovely Sara sent me one of beautiful handmade bracelets, each silver disc has the names of my children (Mia, Talyn & Neo). It is the loveliest bracelet and is such a lovely wearable piece. (it would also make such a lovely present for any mamas you know!!) Sara is super sweet too, she takes the time to find out exactly what design and colours and sizes you would like to make sure its extra perfect, its been so lovely working with her.Take a look at her wonderful Etsy shop Naki Design and her Facebook page here. This is such a special piece for me, i have long wanted something with my childrens names on and it really is even nicer in real life, im afraid my photos dont do it justice!


 Dress: c/o Uniqlo
Shoes: Seychelles
Scarf: Orla Kiely for Uniqlo
Bracelet: c/o Naki Design

    3. Oh super fun are you! Many, I mean A LOT many people spell my name all sorts of funny ways, yet most bloggers are so conscientious of spelling it correctly because I think we are all a bit OCD about our typing, anyway. Sooooo, I do appreciate you making the effort to correct that bit of an error {the type of an error that friends make} and fixed it. So COOL of you! and ...Thank you for linking up, too.

  22. Those glasses were a great choice! It is so hard for me to give my contact wearin' eyes a break, I never like any of my glasses. Beautiful scarf. I really need to try some in my wardrobe.
