I admit, I am vain. And as I age, I go around and around in my mind, saying- “Look your best, keep trying! “ Versus , “Just be- no one is examining you. Revel in that.” And how about-“ Leave those concerns for all the gorgeous young things.” Well, different days catch me in different moods. Today I am feeling a little exposed, I took a chance, I am wondering what people will think… I got new glasses.
They are lightweight and they are comfortable. They are well made and have all my required bells and whistles. They are practical in their way. They are also translucent lavender.
I hope they look good with my graying self while adding a touch of color and whimsy. Not too obvious but showing just the right amount of spunk. I want to be appropriate but not a wallflower.
Of course, I will be surprised at how few people notice my new glasses! Lending evidence to my #2 statement above. But I am happy to have a change, a bit of color, something new on me as I walk out the door.
