Eighteen

So today I am sporting a new accessory.  Alright, it's not new to me, but I have never worn my glasses on my blog before.  See, I have horrible vision.  Not "sorta blurry" or "I need glasses when I drive" bad, but if I didn't have them I would most certainly drive off a cliff (because there are so many here in Indiana) or walk into a wall.  I've been sporting contacts since I was in 7th grade, and I like it that way.  Wearing my glasses is reserved to days when I have itchy eyes or days like today when I slept in my contacts making them unbearable.  Growing up, I remember hearing "Men don't make passes at girls that wear glasses."  Well, since I've already landed a man, I guess I am free to break them out.
Top: Mossimo
Skirt: Merona
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Belt: Limited, gifted from my sista
Glasses: Coach
Necklace: passed down from my mom

that skirt is such a great color! I really like the way you've been styling it over the past remix. I'm totally on the lookout now for an awesome yellow skirt like Kinsey's :)

I just started following you recently and your style is just great! I've come to look forward to your posts :)

I think your glasses look cute!

You look so cute in glasses! My vision is terrible as well, and I never wear my glasses....
As far as the pencil skirt goes, I would LOVE to know how many of these babies you have, because you look fantastic in them, and it does seem like you have an awful lot, but then again you are a great remixer....

Love your skirt! It's so eye-catching! I, too, have been wearing glasses since I was 13. I can't even see the lines on my palms if I extended my hand in front of me...

I agree with everyone else here...that skirt is adorable! I think I saw that one at Target and apparently I should have tried it on. I haven't worn my glasses on my blog yet, but I think about it every now and again. Maybe I should get that done soon!

I never take pics in my glasses because they're not half as cute as yours. And that yellow skirt is divine. Love the way you styled it!

That skirt! That belt! I think I'm in love. I'm also mad jealous of the bare legs. Michigan is definitely not playing that game.

Whoever said that "men don't make passes at girls that wear glasses" should be punched in the face, because that's just dumb. That's really dumb. All you have to do is look in the mirror to see that you're hot shit with them on.

exoh,
Elizabeth

I love, love, love that skirt. It's so bright and sunshiney! And I got my contacts in 7th grade too...except I several years before that refusing to wear my glasses, which is probably how my eyesight got so bad in the first place! :)

It is so funny you wore your glasses during this post. I actually bought a new pair yesterday! I wear glasses everyday but never take pictures in them so your post hit home :o)

The glasses phrase is just something us girls with 20/20 made up because we're jealous of the additional accessory you get.
