I'm currently searching to replace my current optical glasses (I HATE them, the were the worst purchase ever, just so many functional faults, but they look alright). Anyway, I am looking for the perfect glasses. I'm a bit stuck though because I want to find a pair that hold a balance between character, but not so much that all you see when you look at me is quirky glasses, they can't be too powerful. I mean, I would totally go for those kind of glasses if I only had to wear them when reading or something like that, but I wear mine constantly and I don't want to be defined by my glasses character, I don't want them to overshadow my face, or restrict outfit choices (I.E. if I bought bright coloured glasses that could clash with clothing). Right now I'm looking at dark plastic frames that are slightly quirky, but not hipster because I want my glasses to last through trends! I'm also am thinking about, yet to try, just simple glasses that actually are very minimal, possibly clear plastic or even metal frames... I don't know. It could be very difficult!! Yeah.. i'm getting deep here.
In other news in determining my own personal style, I threw a really chic, long (boyfriend) white blazer with black lapels over a hoodie with casual, sporty shorts on underneath, combined with red wedges... and I looked in the mirror and was like.... I think this outfit is me to a T. Really really relaxed (lazy) with one or two items that I frivolously put on in an attempt not to look too casual. I'm unapologetic in admitting that I'm lazy with dressing, but I get away with it most times because I'm good at disguising it. My secret is wearing a jacket, great shoes and earrings!
