Pink-y glasses

For the past few years, I've found great glasses from Lookmatic, the online eyewear shop. Usually I choose black or brown colors, but when they recently launched a collection of white, black and pink glasses, I was inspired to try something brighter. In the end, the New Yorker in me couldn't help choosing black glasses—but these had a fun splash of pink.

Would you wear colorful glasses? Or do you stick with neutrals?
P.S. My trusty tortoise pair.

(Photos by my new friend Laure Joliet during lunch. Lookmatic is one of my beloved sponsors. Toby's Michigan T-shirt is from The Mitten State)

After 10+ years of ugly granny wire-rims, I finally splurged and got new glasses. They're dark red Ray Bans, and I absolutely love them!

I'm actually looking for some new glasses! These are really cool; I'm heading to their website now! Love 'em! And I'm pretty adventurous, so I would definitely try experimenting with some different colors.

The glasses are cute but Toby's t-shirt is even better!! I too am from MI but now call somewhere else (ATL) home...but my little guys (18 month old Leo) would look sweet in MI tee. Could you share the details?

Thanks!

Rebecca Alexis said...

LOVE this. I guess you can say another win for Lookmatic because I wear glasses and am always looking for a new pair. Those ones look so fresh and pretty on you. xo

Selina Johnson said...

Aah I love Toby's t-shirt! I read your blog from the snowy northern U.P.! :) Where is it from?

Gabriella said...

Darker glasses with a tint of a contrasting color can add nice warmth and dimension, I think...I have Paul Smith glasses that have a subtle purple shade on the insides. I love 'em!

anniematic said...

Cute!! I love the pink hue on you. Personally, I'm a Warby Parker devotee - they have a rad tortoiseshell pair that I keep thinking about buying...

Sarah Kyle said...

oh i love that splash of pink

Erin said...

Super cute!!

mary @ BG JOURNALS said...

i generally stick to neutrals: in clothes, interiors, and spectacles...color me boring. i'm working on splashes of color though, getting there slowly. most importantly, toby is just precious!

Chloe Moon said...

I definitely love the splash of pink on your specs!! They are very cute on Toby!! =)

I wore a pair like that when I was a child! But they were soft grey instead of black :)

50th person that loves his shirt. I've got Michigan roots too.

Barbara said...

I wore brown or tortoiseshell for years, but this past year I ended up buying a pair in a burgundy shade. They look fabulous on my face and have ended up being my go-to pair.

Julianna Marie said...

I always buy coloured glasses, black is just too bold for my face. Right now I have red frames, but I'm getting a deep plum purple pair soon. And I actually found a pair of black frames that look good, so I'm getting those too :)

Anne said...

Gonna switch it up and admire Toby's boat shoes. So cute!

Kate Uhry said...

Im JUST like you, always err on the side of safe, but I have a pair of Ralph Lauren sunglasses that are tortoise, with pink on the inside, just like those. love them!

Leslie said...

I don't wear glasses, but I sometimes wish I wore readers just for the style! I think the Jones style is my favorite on the Lookmatic site.

I wish you could get those glasses in Canada!

fancyfunction said...

I love the black plastics with a touch of pink! I used to shy away from dark-colored glasses, but now I really like them.

Amber Andrews said...

I think I'd choose something somewhat neutral with a splash of fun, like you did with the black and splash of pink glasses. Only because I'd need to wear them everyday, but those pink ones sure do make me weak!

Mra said...

I have thick black frames with orange down half combo and I love them - they brighten me up a bit :)

Oh man, just stop! Toby is tooooo cute! I love the photo of him in your glasses (which I also love)! Your blog has been a daily read for me since way before you left Glamour. Always a great little break! xx

It looks like you learned how to blow-dry your hair professionally! Please teach us.

I just LOVE Toby's t-shirt! Love that you celebrate and are passing on your Michigan roots. (I'm especially excited the Upper Peninsula is included on his t-shirt! We get left out sometimes and it's nice to be remembered :))

Rebeka said...

Those glasses look really great on you!! I love the little hint of pink, too.

Blue Warby Parkers are the glasses for me! http://www.warbyparker.com/women/optical/quincy-brushed-opal-f

Hugs and I love your glasses!

CLP said...

I have black glasses sort of similar which are black on the front and green on the back. I always go for the same shape and black or dark brown so I recently ordered a pair of orange glasses from Fetch eyewear. I am excited for the change but also kind of scared I will never wear them.

moseyblog said...

They look great on you! And Toby! :)
I've been tempted to try all pink glasses lately but still not sure...

dizzy_izzy said...

I just bought a pair of Ray Bans and I regret it after seeing yours! Too cute!

Amie said...

Those are way cute on you! Great pick!

Very nice :)
I 'd love to have more interesting glasses but I have a very small face so I'm always limited by choice. There's usually black or tortoiseshell and not much else. Last time I did manage to find a dark blue pair that fit and it's been so nice to wear something a little more colorful - although they're so dark they're almost black!
My 6 year old daughter also wears glasses and she always has something in a bright color which is pretty cute. She has a few different pairs so she can switch it up whenever she wants :)

Laura said...

Oh my, that photo of Toby wearing your glasses is the sweetest!

Alice said...

Those glasses are lovely! I don't wear glasses, which I'm pretty happy about- having tried on lots of friends' glasses, I am yet to find a pair which suit my face.

Siany said...

They look good on you! for me is the other way around, I've always have a colorful glasses in my life: olive green, brown, turquoise, so this new year I bought myself a black one, with a huge frame and really love it.

rcb.shops said...

I wear a gorgeous pair of deep purple glasses from Anne et Valentin and just put new lenses in my husband's old pair of lime green Theos. Gotta punch it up!

Amy Powell said...

LOVE the pop of pink! perfect.

bri said...

i would wear those glasses and i have (more than) prefect vision! they're so cute! ps i love toby's shoes. i can't wait till my mini can fit in his little sperrys :)

essentjewels said...

The glasses are striking, I have a pair of Coach in burgundy... Cute t-shirt on Toby, I am from the mitten state!

Hannah Joy said...

Love Toby's tee and your new pink glasses!

I've been very happy with my blue Warby Parker's. I have blue eyes and the color comes across as a neutral, but it's a little more flattering for me!

I love your outfit! Where is your dress from?

Erin Williams said...

After reading about them here on your blog, I ordered a pair of lookmatics when I got a new/stronger prescription. I was dubious about ordering online without actually trying them on (virtual try-on aside) but I LOVE them. I get so many compliments and wearing my glasses is finally part of my "look", not just a tragic necessity. And so cheap!

Anyway, to summarize: excellent sponsor :)

Lisa said...

I'm looking for a new pair of glasses for when I start grad school this fall. Yours are cute!

Also, the Mitten State shirts are ADORABLE. Gonna buy a shirt for my boyfriend.

Dani Ambrose said...

I love this post. I wore black or brown glasses for ever. Then I found a fun pair of red glasses that I couldn't resist. I still love them and am coming up on needing a new pair. I am not sure what I will get this time but I am hoping to find something with some color. Some one actually told me that my red glasses are like my signature. I had never thought of it that way. It make me like them even more.

Nina Leung said...

I used to only do neutrals, but just last year I got green glasses. I got them from warby parker. They sent 5 pairs for me to try, and the green looked best. When choosing the 5, I choose a lot of different ones and was glad I did.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I am totally coveting the same pair. Love the peekaboo pink! I currently wear tortoiseshell frames but would really like something more colorful. They look great on you and adorbs on Toby!

Catherine Masi said...

These are beautiful glasses! And, good god, that Toby. I would just smoosh kisses all over that child's awesome cheeks. You know, in a non-creepy-from-a total-stranger kind of way :)

Danielle said...

I've been wearing red glasses for years - almost literally the same pair. Years ago I had them in metal and then they were reissued in plastic and I bought them again to replace the tortoiseshell glasses I had been wearing at the time.

The glasses are from Lafont, the French line. As a New Yorker in finance, I wear way too much black and gray to wearing wear colored glasses.

I have green and purple ombre glasses right now because they make the green in my hazel eyes stand out a little more, but I've been wanting to switch to black glasses for 3 or 4 years now. I've changed since I bought the last pair, and God, what an expensive change it is. But I love the pink behind the black, I think it's a very subtle pop of color and I wouldn't be opposed to trying some with purple inside! xx

I literally just got a new pair of glasses this past week and they're matte blue! So different from my usual black or tortoiseshell choices that I've been picking since high school. Go colored glasses!

PS Toby is adorable trying them on!

Lisa Johnson said...

When I first heard about Lookmatic on your blog, I decided to try them. Since they were so affordable and you offered a 20% discount, I decided to try something new and got red.

Love them!

Eliza Jane said...

I've been wearing glasses for almost 20 years, and I've had so much fun along the way. My very first pair, when I was 13, were cat's-eyed, red plaid. Since then I've had tortoise shell, thin black wire, thick cobalt blue, and everything in between. They are the funnest accessory ever. I just wish I had enough money to own multiple pairs!

Gracie said...

I prefer your other ones, they're lovely on you
