trends that make you go hmm... attitude glasses

Need to work on being a little more subtle with my camera remote... but look at the focus on my face!
{ What I Wore: Urban Outfitters blazer & glasses // Ann Taylor shell & wedges // J.Crew shorts // ModCloth necklace }
Get the Look:
white blazer {save // splurge} + white shorts (now on sale) + leopard shell + gold heels + attitude glasses
Nashville is certainly a hotspot for hipsters. This comes with many good things: wonderful indie music, yummy coffee shops, independent thinking, sustainable living, recycling initiatives... and attitude glasses. Yes, not everyone you see wearing glasses in Nashville needs them, some people rock sweet frames just for that extra bit of flair. 
My girlfriend Jess rocks some sweet attitude glasses, and I decided to finally try out this quirky hipster trend. I definitely felt like I was undercover or something... which was pretty fun, but I'm not sure I would want to have to explain to every person that I only wear glasses for fun... not for need.
 Thoughts?
Would you rock some "attitude" glasses?
Or are you a long time glasses wearer that is enjoying the resurgence of trendy frames?

  3. I've always wanted glasses but am too much of a wuss to try fake ones!  I love your white blazer!

  4. You look so cute in the glasses! Most of the time I wear contacts, but I do have glasses which you'll probably never see me in! I love the hipster glasses on other people, but I think I'm too preppy for them :)

  7. I love the overall white look! It's so clean and crisp - perfect for summer. And the glasses are a really dun touch.  I think they are a fun accessory whether you need them or not.

  8. LOVE these glasses on you!!!! I need glasses and have been wearing plastic frames (smaller ones) for a while. But, yes I am game for attitude glasses-I just bought some Warby Parker big black frames. Such a fun look...my mom called them nerdy and I was like...THANK YOU! ;)

  9. You have got some SASS in these photos, love it! Haha, and I'm dying at the camera remote, I would never have even noticed until you pointed it out. But I love the behind the back remote, you've got skills! Love this outfit and love these glasses on you!

  11. I think I'm still saying hmm...not sure about the glasses. However, I love the outfit and these pictures are darling because you are rocking that quirky attitude! Also, I love that you included the urban dictionary link to the definition of "hipster" - made me laugh!

  12. Haha I love your commentary on the hipsters in Nashville, so true!! I have been dying to try out some big fake glasses for a while now. I'm still shy about it, too many people know I don't actually wear glasses! I'd probably start smaller and work my way up. But you are rockin' it! Love them with the red lips, so classy!

  14. You are cracking me up! I'm just about legally blind so optionally wearing glasses isn't really an option, but I did just get a new prescription pair and definitely picked out some attitude frames. :)  Hope you're having a great week!

  17. Look achieved! I love the concept of Warby Parker... Might have to try it out myself! xx

  18. I love all the cute frame options out right now. Just like in 3rd grade when I wanted braces, glasses are something I want but don't need... Some things never change! xx

  20. Awesome glasses! I read your sisters blog and you  look just like Etta in the first picture!

  21. I'm lucky enough to be able to take advantage of this trend legitimately (that's what I tell myself anyway) - because I actually need prescription glasses! I'm totally loving glasses actually being cool at last :)

  22. Aw, that is so cute. I think Etta definitely looks like a baby me, but at the same time is a clone of grown-up Sarah. I guess Sarah and I have started to look more alike in our 20s! Both of my nieces are dolls, thanks for visiting my site :) xx

  26. I love that glasses are trendy since I actually need them!  This look is just so darn cool.  I love the glasses paired with the white jacket and shorts.  And your top just pops.  So cool.

  27. Love this look. The pop of red lips looks great and I actually think you pull the glassess off really well!
