Glasses Nerd

Smart Is Sexy

I love accessorizing with  and handbags, but I never thought of glasses as an accessory. That's because up until now I never had the correct prescription, but after getting these Derek Lam glasses, I became a huge glasses nerd.

I usually wear contacts, they're just easier and more comfortable. Wearing glasses always looked so costume-y to me, like I was dressing up as a hipster for Halloween, which I'm not. I thought with a look like this, I definitely wouldn't be confused for a poser. And they make me look smart, which I am :)))

I've written about this outfit before, it's from Missguided, which has sent me a dirty skirt and a top that wasn't sewn properly. I don't want to recommend it, but if you're really interested, it can be found here.

I like matching two-pieces, and lace overlay things. Together, this makes a perfect contradictory match to the 'glasses nerd' look.

The blue is great, but I also love this white Brigitte Bailey dress. This Rachel Zoe dress in black is longer, while still remaining sheer. This Adrianna Papell dress is a more conservative version. And this light blue color is perfect for the summer.

I love the lace details on this Rickie Freeman gown. It's a lot fancier, and probably not right for a glasses nerd, but it's worth checking out.

The leather jacket is another great accessory that works with this outfit.

While the minimalist sandal was popular for a long time, I feel like I'm seeing a lot of shoes with more straps, like these from Tamara Mellon. Right after shooting this I got some vintage Dior sandals, which would look better here. I think t-strap sandals are the main thing to get for the warmer months.

Of course my favourite bag is this Chanel, similar found here. I will try to mix it up, but this glasses nerd is not easy to change!

For jewelry, I went with gold. Last time I wore this outfit, I wore silver, and I'm happy to see that gold complements this look as well.

And of course, my glasses in tortoise from Coastal, and here's another pair in all black.





I hope you're all having an easy hump day, and have a great rest of your week!
