Optical Express Ray-Ban Competition

I have a whole lot of love for my new Ray-Ban sunnies!

The lovely people at The Big Partnership put me in touch with Optical Express and I was lucky enough to be treated to a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers - perfection aren't they?! But this isn't just to make sure my eyes are kitted  out for the summer months it's also to let you know about a fabulous little competition that Optical Express are running... 

Check out the Optical Express Facebook page and you can enter their competition to win one of 10 pairs of Ray-Ban 2132 Wayfarers. How nice are they?! All you have to do is 'Like' and 'Comment' on their post, telling them what you're most looking forward to about summer - I'm thinking summer BBQs with Pimms, lazy days amongst the daises and sunbeams smiling on my face - and you could win eeee!! It finishes up on June 1st so don't miss out! 

But even if you aren't one of the lucky winners Optical Express sell the sunnies in store and online, with starting prices of £115 they come in a range of four colours, Havana, Black, Blue and Black Rubber. Plus for you lucky Glasgow lot Optical Express have a shop in the St Enoch centre, and for the rest of you lovely lot they also have stores all across the UK. On top of all that I've got a special 25% discount off all online purchase of designer sunglasses to share with you - ooooooh - just pop in the discount code oe25sun. Sorted! 

Now let's get back to the sunglasses...

The iconic wayfarer style has spawned many copies over the years, but nothing can beat the original with the Ray-Ban scrawl etched into each pair. They have been firmly placed in sunglasses history, being one of the most recognisable styles, meaning they just can't fail to make a statement. The brand is one that is made for summer months and you'll keep them forever, coming back to them every time the sun peeks around from those disappearing grey clouds - a classic summer fashion staple for whatever you've got planned. 

So how will I be wearing them in the summer months... 

First up they'll be perfect for days spent exploring new cities.

Denim shorts and a simple tee are a staple summer combination, but one that can be mixed up and made unique all the time. Add a colourful lip and a statement t-shirt and you've created a perfect summer daytime look. This is an ideal loose fitting t-shirt that's eye-catching at the same time and I just love it with a bright red lipstick. Plus when you add on Ray-Ban Wayfarers you're all set. There's something about Wayfarers and red lipstick that is so classic, it reminds me of Swifty for some reason, and that can never be a bad thing. Throw on some woven tan sandals and go and explore some tumbling, twisting foreign streets. I'm heading to Croatia this summer and plan to do just this - with some pretty special sunglasses to complete the look, as they sun will be shining a llllllllll day long, obvs.

Next let's go a bit dressier.... 

Can we just for a moment pretend we're in Paris and we have some dahling-do to attend, simply because we're just fabulous! One can dream. And what's better than a simple white summer dress to compliment tanned and glowing limbs. This is a slightly more dressy look, but Ray-Ban, being the luxurious brand they are, fit in wonderfully. I've added in my favourite summer colour, coral, that I just can't stop raving about! Coral pops are added with classic court shoes and a slogan clutch, perfection. These sunnies are Havana and I think they work really well here, being a bit softer. They perch on your nose as you drink chilled champagne and toast the last of the rays from some chic rooftop bar overlooking the Eiffel Tower.

Let's go to the beach...

This is a bright and bold summer outfit that's made for prancing about on beaches, dancing about to someone strumming on a guitar and singing at the top of your lungs as you splash about in the sea. It's for sipping mojitos under the sun and living of ice lollies for a day. I usually like clothes that work in all seasons, but this little playsuit is definitely only for making a summer statement. The bright flowers are attention-grabbing and you can take it up a notch with a huge, colourful statement necklace, to finish it off throw some flowers on your head, cos why the hell not. Put on a slick of bright pink on your lips as well, Rimmel Apocalips are amazing and stay put all day! No need for shoes as you dance through the sand, but what's a day at the beach without some sunnies. The Ray-Ban Wayfarers fit perfectly in the carefree world of summer dreams - can I go now please?
