Sunglasses: summer trend 2018

I don’t know about you, but I cannot do without a pair of sunglasses in my bag, to be used as soon as possible. And, like clothes, I like to change glasses too.

Fashion Not Only Twenty

We are close to summer and, in addition to the jeans, the white shirt, the pencil skirt we had put in the wardrobe for spring (What to have in the closet for  spring), there are garments that are essential for summer.

Pajama style: what combinations
