Style: Glasses Girl

Today's a day of many firsts. I'm pretty sure today is the first time you've seen me with glasses, and it's also the first time you've seen an outfit post on the blog.

Oofda. Lots of changes, and it's only Wednesday.

Let's start with the facts. The reason I've been wearing my glasses nonstop since Sunday morning? I have a Lasik consultation today, and the consultation requires 4-5 days sans contacts. So here I am, wearing glasses in public. I usually only wear my glasses when I'm getting ready for bed, or when I'm feeling under the weather, so glasses nonstop (or almost nonstop - there's no way to do yoga in glasses) has been a huge change for me. It's making me cross my fingers tighter and tighter that my Lasik dreams come true!

The second fact - this is my first ever outfit post on Twentyapolis. It seems a little crazy that for nearly two years I've been posting content that doesn't include outfit posts. Part of me wants to commend myself on finding things to post about other than what I'm wearing, but the other part of me wants to shake myself for not doing outfit posts sooner!

Yesterday was chilly in Minneapolis, and I definitely did not spring out of bed when my alarm went off at 6:15 a.m. Because I didn't wake up feeling like a million bucks, I wore my new Gap sweater in hopes it would help. Buying this sweater was actually a huge gamble - I didn't try it on before I purchased it, which is one of my very strong fashion don'ts. Luckily, it fit like a glove and I loved the look of the sweater with black cigarette pants and a jeweled necklace. And because it felt like such a quintessential fall day, I had to break out the Minnetonka Moccasins. I've had that pair for five years and they're still in good shape. Great purchase in my opinion, gems. Lastly, I had to pair it with my favorite new purse. That Phillip Lim just gets me, you know?

And with that, I'm off to work. Have a lovely Wednesday.

  1. How did I not know you wear glasses? I NEVER wear mine either, and I don't have contacts so that's why I'm always squinting :) Love your post, I say more outfit posts!
