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.

The blue jacket is a vintage 1980’s Jasper Conran
