The Look: Sunnies, Shoulders & Shells

summer playsuit style
 'Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea and breathe the wild air.'


Nothing can uplift your confidence like a new haircut and a killer pair of new sunnies. Today, I wear my new Firmoo* sunglasses with my shoulders on display and shells in my hair...

Sunglasses: Firmoo* (Get it here) MY FIRST 10 READERS THAT USE THE CODE 'rachelholliday2' will get a free pair of eyeglasses from this page

Playsuit: Ice
Handbag: DKNY Bryant Tote (Get it here)
Flats: Famous footwear (Exact shoes for $15 here!)
Earrings: Lovisa

When you live in the tropics, you can seriously never have too many pairs of sunglasses! Whether I'm on the beach, chasing waterfalls with the boyf or going for brunch, there is going to be a stylish pair literally plastered to my face.

Why? A: The look great. B: If I didn't, my squint-caused wrinkles would be as bad as an 80 year old ladies. 

I am always on the hunt for a new pair of shades to add to my ever-growing collection and Firmoo* have totally rocked my world with this bargain pair! Costing a mere $19, this quirky, mirrored pair look just as fabulous as a $400 pair and have received me waaaay more compliments than any of my designer pairs. The evidence is here (#MermaidVibes).

The marble-effect frame and slight cat eye shape make them such a fashion forward piece and I can honestly say that the glare reduction is great. Sun:0 Rach:1. And for $19 (the price of a movie ticket in Australia), I'd be as draft as Simon Cowell's trousers to complain!

If you wear prescription lenses: listen up! The good folks at Firmoo have 10 free pairs of glasses to giveaway to my readers. (Yes, not kidding.) Simply click here to choose your perfect pair and enter the code 'rachelholliday2' at the checkout.

To show off my new 'lob' haircut, I teamed my sunnies with my boho-print off-the-shoulder playsuit. I opted for nude accessories to let the print do the talking. I think this print would say something along the lines of 'scarfy gypsy chic.'

I added my favorite pair of bargain flats from Famous Footwear. One glance and you would seriously think that these lovely jubblies were Valentino Rockstuds, but, I'll let you in on a secret: they were only $40! If you don't live in Australia, don't fret! I've found another perfect Rockstud look-alike for only $15 here! This Topshop pair are a total stylish steal too!

And, with my bargain shoes and bargain sunnies in tow, I hit the beach and decided to adorn my new haircut with some shells. Rachel, just admit it to yourself, you will never be Ariel!
