[ Warning ] There is a lot of my face in this post.
I have a love/hate relationship with picking out glasses. On one hand, it’s always fun to select a dozen frames, try them all on, and narrow it down. But I constantly feel like my optician would reaaally rather I just made a decision already. Warby Parker is revolutionizing this process though, with their new Home Try-On Program.
Here’s the lowdown: Pick out five frames from their website you think you might be interested in, they arrive in your mailbox promptly after, and then you have five days to make a decision! Try them on as many times as you want, snap some Instagrams and share with your friends to get their opinions. When you’re done, send ‘em on back. No joke, this program is completely free (to everyone in the US– not just blogger folk I promise!). There isn’t even a shipping cost. It’s pretty darn great.
What’d I try on? I was personally on the hunt for some tortoise frames and fun sunglasses!
Clearly, I can’t pull any of these off. But no penalty! Warby Parker takes them all back– you’re not required to purchase any.
And you guys know how I feel about fashion for good: Warby Parker, like TOMS, does Buy a Pair, Give a Pair. For every pair of glasses purchased, a pair will be given to someone in need. So I do hope you order at least one out of your box :-)
One of my favorite things about Boston is that you are never more than an hour away from a beach. We put up with some pretty gross + unbearable winters here, but it’s worth it when summer hits and you can hop on [literally] a subway to sand. This is my favorite sort of New England beach look: a nautical two-piece, lightweight maxi dress, and a wide-brimmed sun hat. And of course sunscreen– I signed the sun savvy pledge long ago and hope you will too!
