Tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses (prescription), c/o Firmoo.
Stop the press because I finally have sunglasses that I can SEE in. You know it is: girl wears glasses, girl leaves the house once in a while only to be double-blinded by the bright lightforce that is the sun. It ain't good and it's squint city.

I've been a glasses girl since I was 15. And back then, prescription sunglasses were just your glasses - but tinted. They weren't style led or anything of the sort and I've struggled in summer ever since, much to everyone's amusement. You might have heard of Firmoo floating around the blogging world, and when they offered me a pair to try out, I was really excited to find a pair in the rounded shape that I so coveted this season.

---

For me, my main concern was the prescription. My eyes are absolutely terrible so it's pretty key to make sure the prescription is right as I drive and am in and out of buildings all day. These were spot on and I find them SO handy to wear. My weekend was spent at Brighton Pride, so they were ideal for lazing out at the festival and beach in. The style is absolutely perfect too - a tortoiseshell frame with (sadly) super darkened lens for eye health and all. Firmoo actually have a First Pair Free programme which is great if you're in a similar situation to me, just head here to get started.

All in all, I finally feel like I've unlocked a life achievement! Level up for Mish!
