The turning point in my wardrobe dilemma, was realising how frequent slaps to the face from passing leaves in the wind didn't necessarily mean a lack of opportunity to express personal style. In fact if anything, it presents an opportunity! Cold temperatures provide the perfect reason to layer, layer and then layer some more, knee-length scarves are unlikely to raise eyebrows and oversized retro sunglasses become entirely reasonable. I mean, it's either that or risk squinting intensely in the wind to the point of scaring passers-by...

Thanks to Sunglasses Shop, those passing leaves in the wind are no longer a threat and even better, I've been reminded of how important it is to protect our eyes at any time of the year. Not only do sunglasses prevent exposure to UV rays that can damage the corneas, they also provide protection to the delicate skin around the eyes, which helps prevent premature wrinkles. I'm absolutely in love with these Ray-Ban Jackie Ohh shades (inspired by those worn by Jackie Onassis), as they completely cut out the glare with their UV400 lenses and are undoubtedly the largest frames I've ever dared to wear. So, it's totally okay if you're wearing your designated 'outdoors' jeans that look as though they've given up on life (oops), because all eyes will be on the stylish sunnies balanced on your nose. Great!
