Sometimes it’s a specs day

Sometimes it's a specs day. .
If you wear contact lenses it's good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.
.
I've worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night. 
I felt 'less than' in my specs- not confident, not sexy - not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours. 
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing-  not an embarrassing encumbrance.

Difficult to know what to wear when the weather changes from hot and muggy to cold and rain and you’re sitting outside the restaurant for dinner

The way forward seems to be mixing Summer and Winter wardrobes.

Chanel-style cotton rib dress from Zara (Summer 2018) with vintage leather jacket. .
Photo seems to be slightly out of focus. Think the photographer may have had one drink too many
