Cat Eyes & Basket Bags ft. Sunglasses Giveaway

The Australian Summer is here and I am majorly crushing on two accessory trends: cat eye sunglasses and basket bags.

Today I take my LMNT Eyewear* cat eye sunglasses and team them with this Summer's must have accessory: the basket bag.

Psstttt... read on for a cheeky international Sunglasses giveaway.

There's something so elegantly Italian and timelessly stylish about cat eye sunglasses. They have a certain quality that makes them take any outfit and instantly make it a hundred times more chic.

My LMNT Kate Sunnies* have barely left my face since I received them and have since proved themselves to hide bags, mascara run-off, hangovers and smudged eyebrows (ain't nobody got time for that).

The slightly oversized frame and slight flick at the edge makes them flattering for many face shapes, including heart shape faces, longer faces and square faces. If what I'm saying is practically Dothraki for you, check on my piece on how to find the right sunglasses for your face shape.

The basket bag trend has been huge over the European Summer, so it's barely surprising that its set to be the must-have accessory for the Australian Summer too!

When paired together, cat eye sunglasses and a round rattan basket bag are like an Italian vacation in a nutshell, and I love it!

  8. While I could easily go on an Italian vacation right now, cat eye glasses never really suit me. I don´t know why, by every guide they should, but I just don´t feel comfortable wearing them.
