I am obsessed with my new sunglasses, and it’s definitely the time of year for them (when the rainstorms Hong Kong is prone to let up). This pair was very kindly sent to me by SmartBuyGlasses, in exchange for including them in this post. I chose the Ray Ban Denim Wayfarers, as I’ve always wanted but never had a pair of Ray Bans, and these were a little more unusual than lots of other sunglasses. Their website also has a huge range of eyewear from various other brands to choose from, and they are based here in Hong Kong, so my delivery time was fast. I didn’t actually realise that these had denim material covering them, as from the photos I assumed it was a pattern on plastic, so I was surprised to see the fabric, but I still really like it. My only complaint is that the frames are a little wide for my head on one side, so I have to hook them well behind my ear.
The rest of this outfit is all pretty new too as a matter of fact; I didn’t do a big summer shop, since i’m budgeting, but I refreshed a few items. All my old shorts were getting a bit worn out, so I picked up some new pairs from H&M. I like to have at least one black or grey pair, such as these, that can be dressed up smarter, but still keeps you cool in summer. This top has been in my wardrobe for months, as I got it in last year’s sales through the winter, so it’s only hot enough to wear it now. I really like the pattern, and the floaty back is especially nice when I get sweaty in the humidity here. The sandals were also new, as I only had flip flops and I wanted something a little bit smarter. These will match anything in my wardrobe, and are good for both day and night (an we also appreciate that I painted my toes for the first time in forever for this post?).
