Today's Outfit

Ok guys, I admit it. I'm addicted to my glasses. Which is a very bad thing, because my prescription is only -1.75, which means that I shouldn't wear them all of the time because my eyesight isn't very poor and wearing eyeglasses too often would speed up the degenerative process (or so my optometrist says). I like to wear them during work, because they help me see the customers' faces from a few aisles down. But then I don't really have to wear them any other time. I just can't quite take them off my face, except when I'm at home.

Anyways, I did get a couple of positive responses to my very casual outfit the other day, so here is today's outfit, also quite casual. I'm hoping the weather will get warmer! It's back to cold weather now. It's been dreary for so long!

I really like how you have draped the scarf around your neck - so effortless.
The unseasonal weather trend must be a global thing. We have had a very mild Winter in Australia so far - at least where I am.

You have no idea how much I pouted when I was little because both my sisters got glasses and I did not. I am still slightly jealous, which is ridiculous because my eye sight is nearly perfect.

The vest definitely adds an interesting element to a casual outfit. I struggle to believe what your optometrist said about the glasses--I'm no proffessional, but I think 1.75 is high enough to wear the glasses all the time and I don't think that would speed up the degenerative process. Maybe you should ask another optometrist.

The Collector: This pretty much proves my point that effortlessness is very calculated. I actually pay careful attention to the way I wrap my scarves. Oh dear. The cat is out of the bag now :P

Amelia: Thanks for that. I'll consider asking another optometrist.

I used to be at around -1.25 or -1.75 but when I forgot to wear my glasses my vision became worse :( and now I'm at like -4.00 and -3.25 haha. Oh man, anyways lovely outfit!

Gorgeous vest! And I can see why you wouldn't want to take those glasses off, they're perfectly geeky.

I really like your vest and if I looked that great with glasses on I don't think I'd wanna take them off either.

Nothing wrong with being addicted to 20/20 vision....

Hello! I follow your blog from Spain everyday and I think your outfits are comfortable and stylish. I comment today because I have the same feeling with my glasses. I only need them for long distance and when the daylight is decreasing (bizarre!) but I love wearing them althoug probably I´m forcing my eyes to be slaves of them for the rest of my days. But with the fantastic designs that we can choose nowadays, who cares?
congratulations for your blog.

yes i'm pretty much hooked on those glasses. i'm secretly hoping that mine would break soon (i accidentally sat on them just a while ago!) so that i may set foot on my great spectacle hunt. darling vest by the way!

Lovely, lovely vest. I'm the other way around about glasses, I'm meant to wear them all the time (but I'm don't...)

I am envious of your ability to wear brown. Something, for some reason, I simply cannot do. Another wonderful outfit <3

i really like the way you've wrapped the scarf. why not get a pair of glasses with a "clear" lenses?

sabrina, if it makes you feel any better, today i pinned(!) my scarf so that it would stay in place!!

I like the casual look and the way it seems to be inspired by menswear. Only you're very feminine looking, so it works.
