summer swapping

Shades: Ray Ban @ Sunglass Hut. ($230 for kit of 3 lenses – in store from June 1). Crochet dress: Vintage/Thrift.  DIY fringe necklace: Worn before here.  Boots: Sam Edelman (also online here). Bag: Anna Corinna in butterscotch (Different colours here and here). Fedora: ASOS. Nails: Topshop ‘Gone Fishing’
It’s official!   New York skipped Spring. We went from cold & rainy  to OMFG it’s hot (its 90 today apparently). Time to wear all the stuff  I’ve been itching to –  this little crochet number included.  The bloody thing has been sitting  in my wardrobe long enough.   I wore it with suede boots and a big leather bag bought years ago which I keep forgetting I have – anyone else forget and  ‘shop’ in their bedroom? The dress is short so I wear little cycling shorts under them.
I’m wearing the new Ray Ban aviators I told you about last week. The twist;  these have interchangeable lenses – each in a different colour.  Not life changing, but saves buying 3 pairs of glasses in different shades when you can get them all in one pair.   The blue gradient (so 70’s) and all black tints are my faves (seen above). 
ps. I think these boots are officially the summer version of the All Saints
