what i wore this weekend // sunglasses edition

March 18, 2013

I’ve been meaning to do another outfit post for awhile. The problem is taking the photos, because I don’t have a tripod and my husband is, shall we say, less invested in getting a good picture than I am. However he IS a good sport, so I hope to keep these coming every now and then.

sunglasses outfit

shirt: Old Navy // pants: Banana Republic (old) // shoes: Teva // belt: old, who knows? // sunglasses: c/o Firmoo // necklace: heirloom from my grandmother

I wore this to church and all day Sunday. It was gorgeous and warm outside and I wanted to be comfortable but not overly casual. These t-shirts from Old Navy are one of my favorite things ever. I have them in several colors and wear them all the time. I plan on buying many more because they are so comfortable, fit well, and so far have held up to lots of washing. You can wear them on their own or use for layering. These pants are also one of my favorites because they are such a flattering fit and I feel light and happy when I wear them. The sandals are my go-to’s, are super comfortable and supportive, and I’m a fan of mixing casual with dressy so I decided they worked.


Now let’s talk about these sunglasses. I wore them a LOT over the weekend because I came down with some kind of eye infection. I am not sure if it is a type of pinkeye or not, but I had a ton of crust gluing my eyes shut in the morning, redness, itchiness, and pain. I decided to forgo mascara and just wore these indoors for half the time when I was in public.

Lately I have had a really hard time finding sunglasses that fit my head. My old ones were falling off (I think they got bent so they were too big) and my new ones hurt my head after awhile. Firmoo, an online optical store, let me choose a pair to try out and I picked these, which are actually tinted regular glasses with no prescription. They fit great and I’m a fan. A few things about the company if you’re interested in trying it out: they have a cool “virtual try-on” feature where you upload a photo, they’re super affordable because the glasses aren’t branded, and you can get your first pair free.

Anyway! I’m back at work now even though my eyes look a little scary. I’m planning to visit ye olde employee health clinic at some point today to get some drops or ointment without having to miss work for something so small. Have a great week, you.

    From Emily:

    Bobby is not as invested as I am when it comes to taking pictures either. That made me laugh. I can never find white pants that aren’t see through in the back and pocket area (my thighs and booty have got some mass though) I need to check out Banana Republic for some.

    From kapachino:

    These are kind of see-through. I can’t wear patterned underwear, and you can see the pockets but it’s not too bad and I just decided that I don’t care about that. :)

    From Nora:

    Just the other day I was talking to Knight about how we have hardly ANY photos from our first few months of marriage together and how i’d like to change that. He shrugged since he’s not a big picture person. It’s a little funny, really.

    I am a huge fan of tees that come in fun colors and are comfortable and white pants I love; people tease me if I wear them too early here, though, so I have to wait a few more months. (It’s still in the 30s at night right now! So much for spring!)

    From Mindy:

    I have those shoes: looove them! I feel the same way about sunglasses… the Ann Taylor Loft Outlet usually has some cute ones for a decent price–I need to go. :) And I too just got over an eye infection! Still using drops from the eye doc, but it cleared up as soon as I began using them. And I need new glasses, it turns out… but one thing at a time…
