My Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

I tried on these sunglasses one day last week, and I thought they were fabulous. I just thought maybe they were too fabulous, like I would look ridiculous. So I didn’t get them.

The very next day, I was studying at Starbucks, and this old lady walked in. She had to be at least 75, probably older. She weighed about negative 50 pounds; her handbag was bigger than she was. It was 80 degrees, and she was wearing long black pants, a yellow sweater, a floral silk scarf, and…these sunglasses.

Well, that was it. Obviously I had to go back and get the sunglasses. Yes, a 75-year-old woman is definitely my role model. Why wouldn’t she be…especially considering my idea of a fun Saturday night is watching Downton Abbey with my cat and a big glass of wine.

P.S. I submitted this post to IFB’s Project #96, which just happened to use the same song reference I did 🙂

  1. Nothing wrong with that kind of Saturday at all! I love the bright skirt and your polka dot bag! My style inspirations are Iris Apfel and most of the Golden Girls, so don’t feel bad.

  2. Hello! It is really nice to read your own considerations about your aesthetic points of view 😉 Oh, loved your sunglasses!

    • I’m almost 33 and I’m only cool with incorporating small touches of neon. Mostly because I remember being head-to-toe clad in neon when I was a kid, so I feel too weird to attempt that again. 😀

  3. You are always so funny – your posts always put a smile on my face. This look is fun and so are those glasses!

  4. I have that same shirt on my blog today but I love your outfit more!! And I’m SO jealous you have that bag and that skirt, I’ve been wanting both!
