As the weather on this side of the world cools significantly, the other side is bracing for warmth, sun and sand. And though I adore the cold, those grey skies and rainy days, when pops of blue constantly invade ones feed you can't help but yearn for a little sunshine. Even if you seemingly despise that obnoxious radiating ball of fire. I don't know about you guys but right now it seems like everyone is travelling overseas; and by overseas I mean Europe. And I don't just refer to bloggers, famous Internet kids and Instagramers. I'm talking about your neighbours, friends and family. They're all over there right now and you? Yes, you? Stuck over here wallowing in envy. Perusing their happy snaps of enjoying the warmth and gelato and revelling with dashing Europeans all while combating and navigating those treacherous cobblestone lined streets; a stilettos enemy number one.

If there's one thing I enjoy doing on a rainy day it is to sit by an open fire with a Dostoyevsky resting on my lap as I become overly immersed by notifications of others. Distracted with painted scenes of beach shenanigans, hotdog legs bathed by sunlight and sand and hand holding rainbow ice cream shots with remarkable works of architecture blending dully into the background. My imagination left to run wild with various concocted schemes. And over the weekend I did just that, only one thing remained constant and that was a divine romper I spotted on ASOS last Friday. A plunging neckline, black in colour and a skort bottom. Were there not a more magical combination for travel? Slight practicality, comfort and effortless style combined. It is one of those rare pieces you come across and think, heck yes I'll take that to St Barts! And to Paris and Barcelona too. Oh and that Guadi walking trail you've spent most of your youth mapping out. All playfulness aside I do believe this is one hell of a knock out piece, be it used for travel or brunch with your friends. What do you think? Is your imagination creating all kinds of crazy right now too?

Hasn't the humble eyeglass progressed over the years? From being seen as a, albeit necessary, nerdy faux pas (thanks to Hollywood for their stereotypical portrayals during the 80's and 90's) to a trendy must have accessory. They've truly risen the ranks over the years. The essential piece for optimal vision, no longer frowned upon by the masses but now coveted, even by those whose eyes need not assistance. People today regardless of need or desire sport them with a confident pride, flaunting both prescribed and unprescribed frames like they're in possession of that new Chloe shoulder bag. I myself have been known to don a pair of thick rimmed hipster frames here and there. Sometimes I wonder if those with a genuine need for spectacles frown upon those of us who gasconade with our outrageous faux lenses. Have the roles reversed? Do the once considered "nerds" now poke fun at us hipsters? Regardless of opinion I'll continue to strut my unprescribed pair with poise. One thing that does annoy me is trying to find a quality pair. One that actually lasts longer than a few days of general wear and tear. And I think I found a place. Eyeglass Discounter are a dependable and reliable family business dedicated to providing you with highly effective service. Quality discounter glasses at competitive prices. And with designs ranging from the classically simplistic to quirky, sartorial style pieces there is something for everyone, no matter how good or bad your eyesight may be.
