_1280442 After failing the DMV eye exam, being lectured by my eye doctor, and several awkward experiences at Panera (their menu is so small). I have decided  it’s time for a change. Guys, I’m going to try to start wearing my glasses. I can pretty much promise you I won’t be wearing them on the blog all the time, but in the name of safety, I will definitely wear them when driving :)


Pastel is not a typical go to for me. Though I love the colors, I consider myself more of an ‘earth tones’ type of girl, ya know? This week was pretty tough for me, I made several rounds to my typical spots to no avail. Finally, I decided to peruse my actual closet, where I found this dress I bought last year from Plato’s Closet.

    This colour actually suits you very well. I am LOVING that frame!
    I was diagnosed with myopia when I was in first grade, I never really wore specs, kind of “rebelled” against it, but once I did start wearing them in 10th, it was like I was viewing the world in HD!

    You look like you were born with those glasses on. I didn’t realize that you DIDN’T wear glasses – that’s how well they suit you. I’ve had prescription glasses since the 2nd grade but hardly ever wear them :/

    You look great 😉

  21. That dress is so pretty, I really love the mint color on you – great find at Plato’s Closet. And those glasses are awesome!

    Btw, I love the way you styled your kitchen!

  22. Sara Strauss March 20, 2014

    Mint is a pretty color on you! You should wear pastels more! Sorry you failed your eye exam, but you look amazing in those glasses!

  23. Laura March 20, 2014

    That dress is so lovely and your glasses are AWESOME. They look so great on you!

    I didn’t start wearing my glasses regularly until I went to college and I realized that I had not a chance in those lecture classes. Now, I can’t function without them. It becomes a part of your face. I wish SEE had a store up here on the lake! Yours are really cute.

  25. 1. You’re totally rockin’ those glasses & 2. that dress is amazing on you!
