My freshman year of high school I got my first pair of glasses. They were a black rectangular shape and they oh-so ever nicely accentuated my braces. HELLO brace-face and four-eyes. Growing up I always wanted glasses – my dad wore them, my mom had reading glasses, and I thought I would look more mature. By the time I actually needed them though, I wasn’t too fond of the idea. In one class, a boy even called me “that one girl with glasses” because that was apparently easier than learning the six letters in my name.
And while my relationship with my glasses got off on a rocky start, I now love them! I normally don’t photograph my blog outfits in glasses, but I do wear them while working on the computer, or if I need to see something far away. I don’t wear contacts and have instead opted for integrating fun pairs of glasses into my wardrobe. I have so many friends who hate their glasses; either they’re an old pair that they wear at night once their contacts are out, or they’re so outdated or falling apart that they don’t want to wear them in public. I, on the other hand own over 10 pairs ranging in colors, shapes and sizes to match whatever I feel like wearing that day!
I recently teamed up with Optically, an online eyewear company that sells glasses online and Rx sunglasses at an outstanding price, to pick out my favorite pairs of glasses! I chose a pink frame that I thought was fun for summer, and then a retro oversized frame to switch up my current day-to-day pair. I’m also sharing over 20 of my other favorite women’s glasses from the site. Whether you wear your glasses on a regular basis, or just need to give your contacts a break, get a fun pair to brighten up your day! xo
