So Comes Snow After Fire

I always forget how bright things can get in the winter; especially when the ground is covered in a blanket of pure snow. Wearing my glasses instead of sunglasses was not a well thought-out plan, but somedays I just can't be bothered with contacts. I actually need to start purchasing more eyeglasses so I can change them as frequently as I change my shoes...or so I can at least have more than one pair!

Outfit details:
plaid shirtdress from Japan
ASOS navy pleated dress
secondhand belt
Target tights
Thank You Mart socks
UO boots
Deux Lux purse
Buxom Lip Stick in Barcelona

  3. You look great with those glasses! Maybe you should wear them more often just to change things up a bit. I like the colors of your outfit, and that plaid shirt adds a excitement to it all! Funny gif, too. It looks like you're flying!

  4. Wow, those boots must be water tight! I don't have stylish boots I'm willing to walk around in snow. I only have ugly Ugg-like Timberlands.

    It makes me sad.

  5. I feel the same way about my glasses - I want to be able to switch them out at whim and have multiple colors and styles. Lately I have been wanting a pair of prescription sunglasses but I think my vision may be to poor for such a luxury (at least in the pair I really want). Too bad poor eyesight isn't a cheaper ailment, no?

  6. I love pictures taken in the snow. These are really fun.
    I know what you mean about glasses. I only have one pair of slightly hipster-ish glasses. I like them but they sort of only provide one look.

  11. Crazy flying gif!

    And it's simple, but I love the top (or dress I guess) under the other dress. Sometimes those buttoned-up looks are just so clean..

  15. Haha, I love the gif of you :D I think I'm in need of some new glasses too, but yours look nice!

  16. This reminds me so much of your old outfit posts, circa 2009, which I love dearly. It's the mixing of the pieces, patterns, layering, & colours that do it for me. Wine & khaki, only you can do it girl.

  17. Love the plaid shirt peeking out from the dress, your tights + socks combo.

  18. This outfit is so great and beautifully school uniform-ish. I know exactly what you mean about the glasses, loads of pairs to go with everything would be great! Right now, if I can't get my contacts in, I feel like I have to dress a certain way- I find them quite stifling stylistically. But then again if I had a cat's eye pair as well this problem wouldn't be so bad!

  20. Do you know about Zenni Optical? They sell lots of glasses (frames and lenses) for suuuuper cheap. Like sometimes $8! My friend has a bunch of pairs and loves them. http://www.zennioptical.com/

  23. Hi Rebecca, i'm a new follower. Saw your blog through littlest polly. Your pictures make me miss the snow. The jumping one reminds me of a film by one of my favorite animators Norman McLaren - Neighbors.

    Thanks for posting!

    Love Elia

  29. I have about 12 pairs of glasses (to match every outfit). My dream was realized when I found you could purchase glasses online for 1/10 of what you would pay otherwise. I have always used goggles4u.com and it has been a dream come true. green glasses with my green tights? yes please!

  30. you're flying in the gif!! :)

    can't believe you were posting at a sunny beach a few weeks ago!!

  31. You look great in your glasses! They have so many advantages, I don't need them but I sometimes wish I did, in fact I'm fairly certain that my lucky pair of plain glass ones helped my pass an exam.

  33. I came to comment to tell you about a website I get glasses from but someone beat me to it! I have I think 6 pairs of glasses from zennioptical.com and I really like them. They've recently changed their website and I haven't checked it out yet, but I would definitely recommend them. All of them I've purchased have been $8 and they are pretty good quality. Better than some I've gotten at the eye doctor before. You should definitely check it out!

  34. Can you actually use the boot pockets? If so, those boots win at life. I could hide so many little things in those pockets!

  35. Those tights and socks--too cute.

  36. I really like how you brought all the colors together!
