Making the most of the sun

When Mister Spex asked me to pick my favourite pair of sunglasses from their website, it really couldn't have come at a better time! I hope everyone here in the UK is enjoying the heatwave.

I was really excited to be asked to do a post with my favourite sunglasses pick for summer 2011 as some other great bloggers have also done this for the site!

I am totally obsessed with Ray Ban Wayfarers. I know they suit me like no other shape, and I love the general rock and roll air they give you. I'm always reminded of Cate Blanchett playing Bob Dylan in I'm Not There.

The moody rock and roll image people like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash have left Wayfarers makes them ideal for an English summer I would say! It may be gorgeous and warm at the moment but I'll bet you next weekend it will be freezing...but the sun will still be shining and so for practical reasons I'll be needing my sunglasses. Some how, Wayfarers still look cool when you're wearing a mac.

I'll be taking them off indoors though, needless to say.

So here are my favourites from the Ray Ban collection at Mister Spex
These are out of stock annoyingly, but they're my favourites!
There's always the classic black to go with my classic red- I am a lucky lady to own them and I take great care of them.

But I love the crazy print on these, very festival-style!

What are your favourite sunglasses? Do you go for throw-away trendy ones or have you got a pair that you cherish?

P.S. Thanks so much to everyone who wished me luck for my exam- it was today and I'm just waiting to find my results out, agggh!

Nice choice of sunnies! I am sporting some for the first time this year. I picked some that sat happily on my face, that and they were cheap. I'll only bust them within a few weeks!

Quite like the last pair, i never suit crazy styles but it doesn't stop me lusting after them! I think i need to buy a pair of these bad boys! Feel so left out, all my friends have them. I'm still rockin' my heart shaped topshop ones, they look so naff now! xxx

I love Ray Bans too, but don't have any :-( they had them on buy one get one free in the airport when I've just been on holiday and me and my friend both wanted a pair but couldn't really afford. I wish I had know just because I don't think we will get them that cheap anywhere else. o well maybe next time I go abroad xxx

Who doesn't love Ray Ban Wayfarers?? I have 4 pairs of them and wear them (almost) more than any other pair of sunglasses. They go with everything and add a cool rock and roll edge to any outfit.

Love the sunglasses! My favourite sunglasses are Rayban wayfarers too; I have a prescription pair, very sensible haha!

No matter how careful I try to be with sunglasses I always end up scratching them so I am definitely a 'cheaper end of the scale' sunnies buyer. I do love a pair of RayBans though! x
