Changing My Look



Wrap: Old Navy | Belt: Charlotte Russe | Jeans: Motherhood Maternity | Boots: Zara | Glasses: Thrifted

An interesting fact you may not have known about me is that I have one near-sighted eye and one far-sighted eye.ย  Hence, no need to wear glasses, prescription ones that is, since my eyes can balance each other out.ย  I hear I’m one in a million.ย  Or at least that’s what my mama told me.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  But to be honest, I always thought it would be cool to be able to alternate between contacts and glasses to switch up your look.ย  In high school, I went through a phase where I bought colored contacts; green, blue, and grey pairs to be exact.ย  And I switched out my eye color every day, although I tended to lean towards the grey color for some reason.ย  Except the contacts were never really fitted for my eyes because every time I wore those contacts I would see the colored ring which made me feel like I was in a constant buzzed state and I’d mistake strangers for my friends and vice versa.ย  But I thought they looked good on me, so I wore them nonetheless.

But anyhow, for this outfit, I decided to switch it up and wear my non prescription glasses that I thrifted awhile ago.ย  Does it make me look smarter?ย  Because that’s the look I was going for.

    Lookin’ good! I love that sweater!

    I don’t wear glasses, but I once wore a pair back in high school as part of an April Fools joke. I didn’t think I actually fooled anyone until I mentioned one day, many months later, that I didn’t need glasses, and one of my friends said “yes you do!” I hadn’t worn them since that day, so it was pretty funny.

    I really need to see an eye doctor and get my prescription so I can buy some cute new glasses!

    Awwwwwww I like the glasses look! I have the worst eyes… Well, that’s not true. I can see. Just have a pretty strong prescription. Today I came in late to class and sat in the back. Bad idea, squinted pretty much the whole class to be able to see the board! Be grateful for your eyesight!!!

    Well since you are already smart, they make you look genius I guess. But you do look cute in them.

    I wear glasses because I’m blind (almost) and can’t wear contacts while staring at computers all day. I always wanted to wear color contacts in high school, but now that I can do what I want, I don’t care anymore.

    Aww you look so CUTE! You should link your cute self (and your thrifted glasses) up to my {Thrifted Thursdays}. New one will be posted tomorrow (thursday—obviously). ๐Ÿ™‚

    i love the wrap! and i’ve always wanted to have hazel or violet contacts – maybe one day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. December 7, 2011 / 10:07 pm

    The lines of the wrap perfectly compliment your belly! It’s actually pretty neat.

  12. December 7, 2011 / 10:16 pm

    Why are you so cute pregnant? I look like a sluggard. I literally wear flip flops or house shoes every day and you can’t look too dressed up with either of those ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope that for my next pregnancy I don’t sweet to unusual proportions!

  13. December 7, 2011 / 10:39 pm

    Cute! I love the wrap! You are the most adorable pregnant woman ever.

  14. December 7, 2011 / 10:48 pm

    You look so cute in glasses! All through out high school I wished I had purple contacts. I haven’t found a pair of glasses that I love yet, but I wish I could change up my look with glasses sometimes.

  15. December 7, 2011 / 10:55 pm

    I have one nearsighted and one farsighted eye, too! I was never allowed to have colored contacts though– you were lucky!

  16. December 7, 2011 / 10:58 pm

    You’re darling! I love the whole outfit..I have a pair of faux frames that I like to whip out every now and then and feel smart haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. December 7, 2011 / 11:50 pm

    too cute! A very lovely outfit

  18. December 8, 2011 / 12:30 am

    Hmm, no, I never wore colored contacts for fun, or even to see with. Although now I wear readers for the computer. But I have to say, I LOVE you in glasses!!! You are even cuter than normal, IF POSSIBLE!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    I wear glasses because I am blind. . . but I love wearing them, yes, they make people look smarter and my husband likes them on me more than without ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried contacts, but never the colored ones. . .

  21. December 8, 2011 / 7:21 am

    You wear glasses well! I’ve thought about getting glasses just for fun, as i’m always putting on my mom’s and sister’s whenever I see them. I never thought I’d like the look on me but the right pair can really be fun. I like a square frame, like you’re wearing!

  22. December 8, 2011 / 7:36 am

    wow that’s pretty cool fact about yourself Sandy! looks like you can have your baby anyyyy min now hehe

    I was so dorky in middle school, I was absolutely horrified when I found out I needed glasses. My sister, however, with 20/20 vision bought nonprescription glasses at Claire’s because she thought they were cool. Good times!

    P.S. You are too cute!

  28. December 8, 2011 / 2:42 pm

    Love the glasses! My son recently stepped on mine, so they’re pretty crooked now. I’m thankful for my contacts while I wait for a new pair.:)

    My eyes are the same way! Had no idea we were so unusual. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do wear a pair of totally rockin’ purple glasses when I have to read a lot. Since I’m a librarian, it goes with the whole “sexy librarian” thing. LOL

  31. December 9, 2011 / 10:52 am

    Im near sighted in on eye and far sighted in the other too!! Hah!!! It has been so long since I’ve commented and just wanted to say how excited I am for you and your husband and the little one on its way!
