One for One: TOMS Sunglasses

It's quite possible that I'm TOMS' biggest fan (the accessories brand, not the boyfriend, although he's pretty cool too). I love, love, love both their products and their ethics; knowing that I'm helping to make a difference in the world when buying things for myself or the kids is a great feeling. Thanks to their brilliant one for one initiative, over 70 million pairs of shoes have been given out to those who need them over the last ten years, and they have worked with some really incredible charities too, launching special limited edition collections in support of Wildaid Panda and Every Mother Counts, amongst others.

I only recently discovered that their giving extends beyond shoes and charitable donations; their One for One also applies with bags (TOMS will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need with every bag purchase) and for every pair of eyewear purchased TOMS will help give sight to a person in need, be that in the form of prescription glasses, sight saving surgeries to treat cataracts and trachoma, or medical treatment for infections or traumas.

Ruth wears: Blythe sunglasses in shiny gold (currently only available 
in the States, but on sale in the UK in silver here) - £129.99
I'm wearing: Harlan sunglasses in matte champagne (currently only available 
in the States but on sale in the UK in tortoiseshell - here) - £129.99
Both c/o TOMS 

There's no denying I have a sunglasses addiction and I am always investing in new pairs, so it was only a matter of time before a pair of TOMS would be winging their way to me. I'm head over heels for my new Harlans, and wore them constantly at Camp Bestival last weekend. When choosing them I realised that the majority of my current collection have dark frames and lenses so opted for a lighter pair. I'm also obsessing over Ruth's seventies style oversized Blythes and trying to persuade her to lend them to me!

Which are your favourites out of the two?
