When I was younger, I thought wearing glasses was nerdy, and only wore them once in a great while. I usually wore contacts everyday, getting up early to spend time getting ready and putting them in.
As I’ve gotten older, glasses have basically become part of my face. I took a few years off from contacts, embracing the glasses life, and I don’t really mind it. I feel like they don’t have to be seen as something nerdy. They can help you express your personal style, while correcting vision.
I finally went to the eye doctor after a two year hiatus, and since they were all half off, I got two pairs of glasses that I really like — a clear pair for more neutral looks, and a purple pair for when I want to be more stylish.
