Fashion blogger Stephanie of FAIIINT wearing Maui Jim Kolohe Sunglasses FAIIINT Maui Jim Kolohe sunglasses on pink flowers

The weather makes such a huge difference to my mood, finally we’re getting some proper sunshine & I feel so much brighter and like I just want to get stuff done. Plus, I don’t think theres any better feeling than the first time in the year you can step outside in just a tank top after a long winter of being bundled up under a million layers. Of course I’m hiding out in the shade here though, I’m so pale at the moment that I actually glow when the sunlight hits me & I think I’d blind you all if I tried to take a photo in direct sunlight!

These ‘Kolohe’ sunglasses from Maui Jim arrived just in time for the nice weather & I’ve been enjoying the super lightweight shape of them compared to my usual heavier wayfarer or cat eye styles. They pride themselves on having some of the best lenses out there, and after trying them out I’m totally sold. I usually find myself squinting a little even through my darkest lenses, as my eyes are quite sensitive, but not with these. Everything looks so sharp and bright through them too. The best way I can describe it is they make everywhere look like a travel brouchure, all deep blues, golds & highly saturated bold colours, you can see a little comparison here to see what I mean. I’m still getting used to the more rounded shape of these, as I usually go for squared or angular styles, but I’ve been wearing them non stop since they arrived & so expect to see a lot more of them over the summer!

    I’m glad to hear the weather is improving! A friend of mine is visiting from the UK and said coming to Sydney when it’s almost winter has put a lot of things in perspective… LOL. LOVE the new sunglasses – these seem like such a different style for you but they look great :)

    Maui Jim was my “go-to” brand when I was sailing around the Caribbean – they’re unbeatable! You look way cool.

    They really suit you Steph – I love the colourful background to these photos too! Our weather is so unpredictable at the moment, I don’t know whether to take out sunglasses or an umbrella! xxx
