We’re pretty much right smack bang in the middle of summer here in Australia (shout-out to our fellow Southern Hemispherians too) and still have plenty of warm weather and sunny days left ahead of us to get our eyewear in check. There’s also pretty much never a bad time to buy sunnies in Australia so here are 7 pairs of sunglasses that we have our eye on right now…
