Winkwood Sunglasses Giveaway + Style With a Smile Link Up

Winkwood Sunglasses bolongaro-trevor-dress

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s the last day of February so Spring really is upon us now, which means (hopefully) lots more sunshine. To welcome the new season I’m running a fabulous giveaway for a pair of Winkwood sunglasses.

Winkwood is a Melbourne brand that designs beautiful and unusual shades. The sunglasses are made using a number of different materials that are resistant to standard wear and tear, maintain colours for longer, and they float in water. They are very light and so comfortable to wear. All of the lenses are tested to reflect or filter out 99% of UVA and UVB light. They also come in a beautiful wooden case. It was so difficult to choose a design to review because they are all so striking, but eventually I opted for Autumn Tale.

In a sea of big designer name sunglasses it’s both refreshing and gratifying to wear something no-one else is.

I’m rarely without a pair of sunglasses because my eyes are very sensitive to bright light, and over the years I’ve built up a nice little collection. As well as the classic styles I also love unusual eyewear, but often that means compromising on comfort. Not so with these Winkwood shades; they are the most comfortable pair I own. I took them on holiday to the UAE last week and I almost forgot I was wearing them they are so light! Dubai looked even more splendid viewed through these mirrored lenses. In a sea of big designer name sunglasses it’s both refreshing and gratifying to wear something no-one else is.

Even though it wasn’t really the weather for short sleeves I wanted to wear this dress because it goes so well with the sunglasses.

We took these photos before I went on holiday and it was very cold…you can probably tell from the goose bumps on my arms! Even though it wasn’t really the weather for short sleeves I wanted to wear this dress because it goes so well with the sunglasses. I’ve had it years but have only worn it once. I don’t usually wear above the knee skirts or dresses without tights so it probably wasn’t the most sensible purchase but the print hooked me. Finally, I got around to buying tights in colours other than black and brown (why did it it take me so long?) so I can finally get some wear out it.

I chose a pair of navy ankle boots for a leg-lengthening effect and an orange bag to pick up on the orange in the dress. A pink bag would work equally well…maybe I’ll try that next time!

So if you fancy a new pair of shades you really must enter this Winkwood sunglasses giveaway! Don’t worry if you don’t win because you can bag a 30% discount with the code STYLESPLASH.
Good luck, happy shopping…and of course don’t forget to link up your outfit posts 🙂

    Great dress and it goes so well with the sunglasses and your colouring. You’re very brave to attempt photos outside with short sleeves! Respect.

      Thanks Gail! My husband kept telling me not to look so cold, but you can’t make goose bumps disappear at will!

    You were so right about the shades and the dress! Beautiful colours, but I think above the knee length looks just good on you!

    • March 7, 2017 / 1:28 pm

      Thank you Nancy! My legs are not quite “Summer ready” yet (in other words pasty and needing a wax!) so they’ll have to stay hidden under tights for a while longer 😉

  7. February 28, 2017 / 5:15 pm

    You look lovely and those sunglasses are sensational. I’m also almost always with a pair of sunglasses and have my own little collection of them. I like the unique style of yours and I will definitely take a look at this brand.

      Thanks Rena! I really love these sunglasses, they are so comfortable. I’d been wanting some mirrored sunnies for ages and these are perfect!

    I’m terrible at picking things but love the style sunnies you’re wearing! Since I’ve embraced my natural curl and grown out my bob, I’m experimenting with different shades.
