People, today was a pretty beautiful day. The high got up to 42 degrees, practically balmy by recent New England standards. I even considered going for a run outdoors this morning! Of course, that plan was nipped in the bud upon remembering my walk yesterday through my usual cold-weather running trail, to find it liberally dotted with lagoons. Yeah, I went to the gym. Anyway, because today was a nice day and we're supposed to be hit with yet another snowstorm tomorrow, I decided to overdress for my dentist:
After enjoying my long grey socks last week, I decided to pair them with bright, contrasting stockings. I always like pairing my bright yellow tights with a red dress; I had thought it would be too silly to wear a dress to my cavity-filling, but you know? Why not? Why shouldn't I dress cute? I really think that being forced to wear a dress/skirt every working day last year kind of froze my mind into thinking that my dresses should be worn only to "professional events." But I need to remember that in the summer you won't find me in a pair of pants, and before this particular job, I used to wear dresses out all the time. So there you have it. Return to my old self. Woo-hoo!
And now for something completely different:
This morning, I got an e-mail saying that my Warby Parker Home Try-On order had shipped. Yay! Something even cooler was in that e-mail. Remember how I chose my four frames for this? Well, since you're entitled to try on five frames at home, Warby Parker put an extra frame in my order that - based on the ones I had chosen - kind of went with the general vibe. Enter the Zaggs in Tennessee Whiskey:
Cute, huh? I obviously love the tortoiseshell/crystal look, as I ordered two frames in that style. I didn't choose these because the lenses are not as deep as the other ones - my favorite pair of glasses, which were tortoiseshell, were kind of this shape, which I loved. However, I've gotten used to a deeper frame for my eye, so ... who knows, though? Maybe these'll be the surprise winning contenders! Either way, I can't wait to get my hands on these frames!
