I woke up and put on dark purple tights, a bright pink skirt, a bright green cardigan, white tee, and floral scarf. Cardigans are so librarian, love them.
Oh, wait. Those look like new glasses don't they? Well, here's the thing. I have horrible eyesight. I'm pretty blind without a prescription. The last few years I've gone to an optometrist for glasses, they keep on reminding me how bad my prescription is when I start looking at frames: "You're going to need thicker frames than that."
So I picked up this brown tortoise pair via Ralph Lauren, and was set. Slightly geeky, but not wholly unstylish (these days). I went to the optometrist last Friday and the doctor informed me that if I kept wearing my contacts as long as I do, with as much computer staring as I do at work, then my eyes were going to explode (that may be hyperbole, but he did use the word EXPLODE). He said I should be wearing glasses at least three days out of the week.
Luckily, I had this pair!
However, when I picked them up today I realized that not even the super thinned out lenses I paid extra for really fit in these medium-frame glasses. They stick out a smidge, but that's hardly noticeable. I'm pretty sure I'll be one of those grandmas with two-inch thick glasses who's always squinting (get ready, Jesse!).
Speaking of, Jesse also got me a nerdy pair of Kirk Originals glasses that I absolutely adore. They're yellow tortoise shell...
And come with a surprise on the left side!!! -
I saw them and immediately thought about how stoked my 7th-grade self would have been. PRETTY STOKED! Yes, it's all glitterized - on one side. The other side is completely normal. Do love.
I can't wait to switch these pairs around during the week. I also have a black pair (boring!) but I'm pretty sure I'll continue wearing these perfectly librarian-esque frames with my increasingly coloriffic outfits. I have to say, I'm pretty satisfied with my latest sartorial choices! And I should be, right??
Anybody else wear glasses? Particularly thicker-framed ones? Fave brands? Apparently my blindness is an excuse to invest in this particular accessory...!
