Five Glasses, Five Work Outfits

Summer 2019, I went on a cruise with my family and returned to port with broken glasses (remember that?). Summer 2020, I develop an obsession with Eye Buy Direct (this is not sponsored, by the way) and end up buying more glasses.

Now I spend my mornings choosing between five different pairs of prescription glasses to wear for the day.

Last week, I decided to wear each pair for a different day of work and documented the outfit I wore to accompany the glasses.

**Don’t mind the wrinkled clothes. To be honest, I haven’t ironed anything in quarantine.

TUESDAY: 6-10 AM

Black prescription glasses with blue light filtering from Eye Buy Direct

Blue collared shirt provided by work, pants are bell bottoms from Belk’s (not sure of the brand)

WEDNESDAY: 8 AM – 12 PM

Geometric prescription glasses from Eye Buy Direct (I believe they’re called “Octave”)

FRIDAY: 4:45-9:30 PM

SUNDAY: 4-8 PM

These are examples of the work outfits I conjure up to match my varying pairs of prescription glasses.

Which one did you like the most? Or, which of the above shifts would you not like to work (keeping in mind I work as a cashier at a hardware store)?

Be you. Be true.
