Sheesh. I haven’t worn tights in FOREVER. I default to leggings mostly, since they’re warmer, and seem much less high-maintenance, but this was pretty easy, actually, and wouldn’t have worked with leggings. The dress would get stuck, and then ride up, and the leggings get bunched…
I wore this to …wait for it… Target, the bank, and Whole Foods. Yes, that was my day yesterday. Honestly, for most of the day I was working at home in a pair of SoLow pants, an Everlane men’s t-shirt, Splendid cowl-neck thermal top & uggs, but you don’t want to see a picture of THAT. I promise.
And I know you know by now if you’ve been paying attention, that I have “home” clothes and “public” clothes, and never the two shall mix. I’m not that girl who can just run errands in her yoga pants, or whatever. I work at home in whatever I put on to take Dagny out in the morning until I go to Pure Barre, and then I work more in whatever I wore to Pure Barre until I take a shower and actually get dressed. I run errands or whatever during the early afternoon, come home by at least 3:30 so I can take a picture of my outfit, then change clothes by 4 to feed Dagny and take her out for a long walk or run depending on the day. And then I hang around at home in whatever I wore first thing in the morning.
That’s it, the amazing, fabulous life of a full-time blogger. I don’t know what those full-time bloggers are doing who get all dressed up every day. Something glamorous I guess.
But I really wanted to talk about wearing glasses. I’m conflicted. Although not really, because I can actually SEE now, with my new progressive lenses. REALLY see. I forgot how much I was compromising wearing contacts, but I always have seen better in glasses. But I have a hard time wearing them for Pure Barre and running/walking outside. Admittedly, I haven’t worn them for Pure Barre yet, but the one thing I always hated about wearing glasses was getting sweaty and having them fall down on my nose all the time. THAT, I cannot abide. Man…summer is going to be tough!
And, glasses give me a totally different look. One that I like, definitely, but it’s “a look” for sure; a little harder? more “intellectual”? If I can do it this year, perhaps I’ll get the Eli crystal frames also (modeled here), just to switch them out every once in a while, I really liked those, and they were a slightly softer look, more artsy.
I did go back to Warby Parker and ordered sunglasses – single-vision this time, no need for progressives in those. I got the Raglan in black, so when they arrive, I’ll be able to wear my glasses more often. As it is now, I don’t wear them much when it’s sunny, because I have a hard time driving without sunglasses.
Oh, and I bought some lens wipes at Target that I use on them every morning that seems to help the smudging issue quite a bit. I have to wipe them down with a microfiber cloth frequently during the day though. And, every time I’m in the area of the showroom, I get them adjusted a little…they do fall down on my nose more often than I’d like. But, overall, I’m really happy with them.
Anyway, you glasses-wearing ladies, how do you adjust to wearing glasses full-time? Any tricks? Do you have multiple pairs?
