Back To Basics

DARLINGS!!  Happy Monday!!  I must admit, even though I work for myself. freelance, and go to grad school full-time, which means I don’t work the regualr 9-5, I still hate to see the weekend go.  However, this Monday I am geeked because it’s the first day of school, which means my niece and nephew go back to school and I get to work in silence during the day! Now tomorrow I might not feel as excited because I start school, lol.  

For a last hooray before school started, I took my niece and nephew to the movies on Friday.  I wasn’t in the mood for being even slightly fancy, so I took it back to the basics in jeans, a white tee, and eyeglasses :-).  I don’t know the last time I left my house in eyeglasses, lol, probably this post, as I’ve grown to love my contacts so much this year!

The lovely folks over at Firmoo sent me a new pair eyeglasses earlier this month, and I am very much smitten with them!  I don’t wear glasses often these days, even at home, but since getting them in the mail, I have been trying to remember to take my contacts out more :-).  If you are in the market for a new pair of glasses, I would recommend them, as they have really cute options at affordable prices, and even offers a free pair of glasses to new customers!

The rectangular shape and tortoise of these glasses are so different from my previous pair; it’s fun to switch it up a bit!  I think I will try to wear them out more often, especially on not so sunny days, as I love wearing my sunglasses while looking into the sun :-).

T-shirt: Hanes (from the boy’s department); Jeans:  Gap; Shoes: Steve Madden; Eyeglasses:  Firmoo; Necklace (worn as bracelet): Nakate

As much as I love my vintage pieces, print mixing, bold colors, and sequins, I am a jeans and white tee girl at my core.  One truly can never go wrong with jeans, a tee, and a good shoe (I know many will disagree, but that’s my theory)!!

I’m pretty silly (or maybe goofy is the better word, lol), though I don’t show it often, so I thought I’d throw this one in for laughs, lol.  What do you wear when you want to get back to the basics?
