Buying Glasses - Why is it so Hard?!

Well, it is that time again.  And by that time I mean time to upgrade my glasses.  Getting new glasses always fills me full of excitement panic.  It fills me full of panic.  I don't know what it is about having to decide on glasses but it makes me so nervous - you have to commit to that accessory (that you will likely wear every single day) for a whole two years!  Plus they are super expensive.  I usually get my glasses somewhere cheap (because I am generally a little cheap).  But this year I decided it was time to upgrade and get myself some big girl glasses that I hopefully will like for a long time, so that I don't have to go through this agonising decision process again.  As a nursing student/soon-to-be nurse, contacts just aren't happening for a 12 hour shift - so I wear my glasses all the time.

My new specs should be arriving next week (be prepared for selfies when they do) but in the mean time, these are the top five glasses I'm loving right now:

1.  Tortoiseshell is my absolute favorite glasses style at this moment.  Definitely what I will be going with this time around.  There is just something so classy about it, plus it is neutral and goes with everything.

2.  Two tone is a cool way to mix it up.  Also, this lady looks so amazing in glasses.  I think she is a specific glasses model because I have seen her in a ton of glasses adds on Pinterest.

3. I feel silly wearing a true cat eye, but I absolutely love the style.  Especially these Tom Ford ones:


4. Blue frames.  No explanation, I just like blue frames.  These Tory Burch ones are amazing:

5. Rose Gold... Ah rose gold, it makes me so sad that I can't wear you (I feel like I am the only person in the world whose skin tone clashes with rose gold)...


Do you wear glasses?  Any favorite styles that you've been seeing a lot of lately?  I would love to hear!

  1. I stretch one pair of glasses for as long as I can! I'll probably have to get a new pair this summer, though!

    1. They're hard to commit to when you know you will want to keep them for a long time! But maybe other people aren't quite as indecisive as I am on the glasses front. Haha
