And now we pass, and just like glass...

If you've been around here awhile, you know I've more than my fair share of issues with my eyes. I've worn glasses since I was 6 and contacts since I was 13. When GlassesUSA.com contacted me to look around their site for prescription glasses, I didn't believe for a second it could be that easy. My eyesight is so horrendous, I didn't think I could actually buy glasses online. (I don't know why, I buy almost anything online...) But anyway, I started looking and surprisingly found a few pairs of glasses that caught my attention. Ok, so I can order glasses online, and they have a nice selection. I still didn't think it would work out.
My last pair of glasses cost over $800. Yeah. Seriously. So when GlassesUSA said they'd give me a $50 voucher, while I was appreciative, that's really a drop in the bucket towards what I usually pay. Even after having to add a $59 super lens package because of my prescription, the total was only $187.
$187. And I usually pay $800+. (To be fair, they do have a 110% lowest price guarantee, so...)
Yeah. Sold.
Ok, so on to the good stuff. The style I picked was by William Rast and I'm quite happy with them. I got them about a week a half after ordering and have been wearing them ever since.
They offer a Virtual Mirror feature on their site, which is pretty useful for buying glasses online.

Summer Lovin'

How is it July already? I don't know about the rest of you, but we're enjoying a pretty simple and relaxing summer so far. Here's hoping that continues. The above picture was taken during our week at Orange Beach in early June. Nothing better, am I right? Hopefully we'll be back in August.

As far as what I'm wearing lately, I've been living in either this Splendid shirt or the many other close replicas of it and either my dark denim shorts or white denim cut offs. 
Keeping it simple, my friends.

I caved a few months and bought this House of Harlow necklace I'd been wanting for, oh, years. It quickly became a staple.

 Other staples have included the Sam Edelman sandals I picked up at our new (and only) Nordstrom Rack. I'm assuming they were on super sale because they weren't all that easy to get on and off at first. It only took about 2 wears to break them in though, and wear them with practically everything.

The last summer staple would be the L'Oreal nail polishes I picked up in Royalty Reinvented, Not a Cloud in Sight and New Money (the clear is a top coat - decent, but no Seche Vite). They're all gorgeous! And as the picture and this post clearly are saying, I do ♥ summer :)
