Sunglass Hut Shades of You, Milea Resort, W BangkokIf anyone ever asked me for an accessory that I just can’t live without in my life it would without a doubt be my sunglasses, or my many pairs to be more accurate. My partner takes it that step further and wears his shades even on overcast days – yep, he’s that person. Sunglasses are the perfect substitutes when you want to look like you’ve put effort into your look but really you haven’t. I often find myself cheating on my morning make up routine and swapping my shades for my cosmetics bag and quite frankly my skin thanks me for it, especially in the summer.

Summer is without a doubt my favorite season and it’s even better for us Aussies because it happens during Christmas and New Years, followed shortly by Australia Day. The days are longer and taking evening strolls along the coast with my man and two adopted kids (they’re whippets – I don’t actually have kids) is something I look forward to all week. Sunglass Hut Shades of You, Magali Pascal, BaliEven during these casual strolls, having the perfect pair of shades is important and I know people have asked me to show case my collection but there are just too many.

Instead I’ve curated the perfect collection of shades this summer courtesy of Sunglass Hut and showcasing #ShadesOfYou. I tend to opt for shades that are wearable with almost every outfit you wear from casual to more formal. You may have seen these bad boys stapled to my face this season (check them out here) because they go with everything. Rayban definitely has the sunglass category covered for affordable, wearable and stylish and Sunglass Hut is the place to go for a playground of options. Funnily enough my first job straight out of high school was with Sunglass Hut and I used my first pay (and then some) on new shades and invested in Raybans. 

Sunglass Hut, Ray Ban, Shades of YouI’ve also chosen to update my collection with a fashion piece and thought this pair of Miu Miu’s was a perfect addition for the more farshun appropriate moments. Hello Fashion Week! They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I beg to differ – sunglasses are. 

What are your favorite shades for the season?

    I absolutely love sunglasses for the summer. The ones you are wearing are adorable! You are making me miss warmer weather since it’s winter in NYC right now.

  • Im a big fan of the circular ray bans! They are so cute and go with it all

    I am in love with my Christian Dior’s but I am a Ray Ban fan too, honestly, I am like you, cannot live without my sunglasses 🙂 All of the ones you have chosen are so cute. I love your post, you look beautiful in that glorious sunshine !

  • Sunglasses have definitely been growing on me since last year! I would love to expand my collection! My first real pair of sunglasses are Raybans Wayfarers and I love them so much! I used to be wary of circle shades or frames in general cause I don’t think it fits my face well…and it reminds me of HP LOL but I think that I should learn to step out of my comfort zone. SO I will definitely look into experimenting with different shapes and sizes for the new year!

  • This brand has an amazing selection of sunglasses! and they look so good with each of the bathing suits you are wearing in the photos 🙂 I actually have so many pairs from zeroUV – they are affordable and have every kind of style imaginable. Another thing I like about them is they are based in my hometown of Huntington Beach 🙂

  • Diana Horsfall

    I definitely need more glasses. I use glasses too, when lazy to wear make up, totally know what you are talking about. This shades look pretty cool! Miu Miu one is my favorite too.

  • Christine

    I too cannot live without sunglasses. I just how they change up your look and you can totally create a different image depending on the shades you choose. What a fun collection you curated for Sunglasses Hut. I love purchasing from them and they have the best sunglasses cleaners too! Xoxo, Christine

  • I’ve got those Miu Miu’s and I love them so much! They’re always in my travel bag! I’m a big Ray-Ban fan too, but I’m gonna try some of their different frames this summer! I’ve got them lined up, so I’m gonna try new things, maybe the round ones! This is a great collection, too many options to pick just one favourite!

  • Deddeh Howard

    I agree with you, summer is my favorite too. Funny story is, I always lose my sunglasses lol.. love your shots beautiful.

  • I’ve recently developed an obsession with sunglasses. They make any outfit look chic!!! I love your picks


  • I agree with you that sunnies are great to “up” your outfit game because it helps to hide the imperfections on our face especially during lazy days where I don’t event wear makeup. I’ve been wearing sunnies for my overseas trip cuz I’m going without makeup all the time and it helps to make my photo editing process faster too *LOL
    I haven’t found my favourite shades this season yet cuz my face is small and I need to find petite frames to suit me. Will update you when I find one 😉

  • Such cool shades, love them. But my go-to are always multi-colored ones, haha. And of course Ray Ban has some of the best!

  • Sunglasses are my weakness! Even with a drawer full of sunnies, I still can’t resist a fab pair if I see one! Love your pair of Ray Bans. They’re such classics that will never go out of style. I’m an oversized sunnies kind of gal and those Dolce & Gabbana’s on your list of picks have definitely caught my eye!

    xo, Jo


    You literally have the BEST sunglasses, you must have a huge collection

  • I love your sunglasses collection and the new ones you’ve added are stunning! They suit your cute outfits and that beautiful weather you’re enjoying!

  • Linh Dao

    First of, love the title! Secondly your pictures are always so amazing and vibrant! I love the shades! So beautiful babe! You are rocking it!


  • Sofia N

    I couldn’t live without them either. Watch out so that your SO doesn’t start wearing them inside, maybe he will end up wearing them at his wedding as well. My best friends husband did that haha. He did take them off when they were up by the priest though but put them on as they walked down the aisle.

  • We are so alike! I have an almost unhealthy obsession with sunglasses. I always have my prescription Tory Burch pair with me, and I have about thirty more pairs that I trade in and out depending on my outfit. However, I do opt for cheaper styles, primarily because I tend to either lose or damage them really easily. The couple of higher end pairs I keep in their case 24/7, even when they’re traveling in my purse. I love the choices you linked! So many gorgeous shades – so little in my wallet haha!

    Anything mirrored has been on my radar, no matter what shape of size. They look amazing on everyone and come in such vibrant colors. I love these you picked!


  • Marcy Yu

    If you walk to my closet the biggest collection I have are sunglasses and bags hahaha LOVE sunglasses.

  • You’re the perfect sunglass muse with all your sunny and beachy photos! Can your images BE anymore beautiful? (In Chandler’s voice haha)

  • The Blonde Diary Channel

    I can’t live without sunglasses too!! I am obsessed with Linda Farrow. And btw you look stunning on all pics!


  • Haha!!! I am totally guilty of throwing on sunnies instead of putting on my face on lazy days where I still want to look half decent. You look incredible babe! Loving all your sunglass picks 🙂 xo, sharon


  • I never used to bother with sunglasses because I couldn’t seem to find ones that fit my face shape but now that I have my favourites, I never leave the house without them!! You look amazing! I love that second pair of Ray-Bans!


  • I love sunglasses but for some time, I had such a hard time finding the brand that would be the best fit for my tiny face. And who’s the winner: Rayban!!!
    the round ones to be exact. I got a pair which is mirrored and I kinda want to buy the same style in all the colours haha
    I love the ones you’re wearing especially the last one, I’m going to try that style and see if it’s a winner hehe

    Bisous, Josie


    Hello dear!!!
    I have a collection of sunglasses :))
    I buy sunglasses not bags lol. But I promised myself to don’t buy more .
    Now I have 3 preferites. Celine, Dior and Miu-Miu.
    I have also raybans. With rayban you never can go wrong it’s true.
    Awesome pics as always. Love see your happiness!!!

  • You look so fabulous! I’m obsessed with sunglasses, I wear them all the time even on not so sunny days 😉 xx

  • Thomas Falkenstedt

    I agree! Shades are good for everything, even on cloudier days. You can hide behind them and it makes you look mysterious. You got to have the right shades for them though like you do in these pics! I need to invest in some good one’s as I’ve got tired of my Guccis!


  • maggie

    I always see your sporting the coolest shades! I wish I had a good sunglass face. Lol. I have to literally try out every single pair before making a decision. Ray Bans unfortunately never look good on me and it’s so depressing!

    Maggie S.

  • You look FAB in all these shades babe! I love throwing them on too when I don’t want to wear makeup in the Summer hehe!x- Mitra


  • Tandya

    My favorite accessories are sunglasses as well! Your photos look amazing! Like your partner, I’m “that girl.” Truth be told I wear my sunnies in the shade as well! Thanks for sharing! Xo

  • Sunglasses are my fave accessory too- I love how they just finish every look off perfectly. Both of these pairs are so wonderful on you- I really like the hectagonal shape of the second pair

  • EverestSays

    I love sunglasses and also the huge range of sunglasses that sunglasses hut carries!
    You carry off all kinda shapes so well!

  • Amanda Smith

    Ray-bans are definitely my go to too. Every time I buy any other pair I always end up back with my favorites and I’m all for swapping my makeup bag for shades too! Love all of these shots!

  • Atsuna Matsui

    Sunnies make a great statement accessory to any outfit for sure. Likewise, my boyfriend practically always rocks his sunglasses as well any season of the year. I use to think sunglasses didn’t look good on me since I have pretty prominent cheekbones, but I’ve learned to find the right shape that suits my face shape. I think we all need to just discover what sunglasses frames suits our face shape.


  • Nadia

    Girl, I literally cannot wait to summer!! Once Christmas & NYE have passed, I am like “roll on summertime!!” 😀
    By the way, we never get a proper hot summer here in the UK but at least it’s sunny. Which means I can wear my favourite sunnies 🙂
    LOVE your photos & kudos to your partner for wearing his sunglasses on a cloudy day as well. He must really love his eyewear 😀
    xox Nadia

  • Camille Lenore Nichelini

    Of course my favorite of the sunnies are the ones that are sold out!!! 🙁

  • Your vacation photos are so colorful and beautiful!! Love your sunnies so much!! Also that palm trees swimsuit is simply stunning!!

  • Ravayna Coe

    I’m loving all these shades, and especially the gorgeous palm print swimsuit on you! And I’m a sunnie collector too- I have so many pairs!

  • These are cool shades! Ray-ban sunnies are lurve 🙂

    Xo, Shaine

  • Love your selections of shades! You look great in every pair. I have a fun pair of floral Dolce & Gabbanas that I like to wear on sunny beach vacations. I often wear my Fendi’s but I totally need more!


  • Loving all of these sunnies so much! They all look so fab on you and love how they can go from casual to glam! Ray-bans are always my fave!

  • jacqueline

    You know I seriously need to invest in a new pair of sunnies! My last pair I actually bought at Sunglass Hut and it looks like I’ll be needing to go again for those Ray Bans. They’re amazing!!!

  • Kayla

    You are making me totally miss summer right now! lol And I agree, I tend to swap out my makeup bag for sunnies too! I love the Miu Miu pair you picked out the best, so chic!

  • You wear the best swimsuit ever and that’s pink sunnies is so stunning. And which fashion week are you going? I don’t really have any favourote sunnies as I always lose them. I have lost a chanel and raybans couple of times. 🙁 also me too! I love summer having been grownup in a tropical country!

    Have a great wek Helen!


  • Vanessa Troset
