Ordering Glasses On

You guys have all seen me wearing glasses before because, well, I always wear them. Pretty much any time I leave the house I’ll have on either a pair of sunglasses or eyeglasses to help accessorize my outfits. Shopping for glasses online can be a bit of struggle and there are way too many websites with price that are honestly not worth it unless your shopping for designer pieces. That's why is where I go for all my glasses needs. 

They specialize in prescription eyeglasses, and have a endless amount of styles and options to choose from. I for one have always been under the assumption that prescription glasses are unstylish. I was almost proven correct after walking into my corner eyeglass store. The selection was small and seemed extremely outdated but those are not the same styles you’ll find at Glasses Shop.

Shopping from them is quite simple. Browse their website and find your favorite style. The product page has all of the dimensions listed plus you can upload a headshot and see exactly how the glasses will look on your face. This takes away all the nerviness that comes along with online shopping because you can try on the product without ever actually touching it. Once you’ve decided on a pair of glasses you can go ahead and choose a lens type. They have single vision, which has only one magnification throughout the entire lens and are best used for reading or computer work. Multifocal which corrects near sightedness and far sightedness and the fashion lens which is a clear lens for those who want the look of eyeglasses but don’t need a prescription lens. 

They also have a great selection of sunglasses and prescription sunglasses. I’ve chosen a few of my favorites down below. Make sure to take advantage of their Independence Day sale and use the code GS50 to get 50% off on your purchase of any frames.

Suit Separates For Warmer Days

Blazers of any kind are essential to me. Even in the summer heat there will be days when my stubborn style tells me that a blazer is a must. I like mixing things up with different patterns and colors especially in the summer when the fabrics get thinner an thinner, and I'm always on the look out for any eye catching blazers when shopping. I found this one and knew I had to have it. The color might not be the brightest or boldest but the texture is quiet stunning and it's a piece that matches with just about anything in my wardrobe. I think that blue of any shade works perfectly in the summer. You can see here that different shades all gel so well together making morning styling sessions super fast. I've been wearing a whole lot of blue lately and even have an all blue look coming soon so you can see the beauty of one simple color. Thanks as always for reading.

A Watch For Every Occasion [Lilienthal Berlin]

My watch collection has been growing over the past few months and I’ve discovered that every watch has it’s own purpose. Whether it be because of the color of the band or the complexity of the face itself every watch is unique and works best with a different style of clothing. This particular watch from Lilienthal Berlin was created with inspiration from the urban character of Berlin. If any of you have been to Berlin you would know that while being a beautiful modern city it has a certain amount of grunge and grit that is different from many other places. People do their own things and live by their own set of rules. They dress as they wish and live life to the fullest.

Making a watch for such a crowd may seems difficult but the creators at Lilienthal Berlin knew that simplicity is all that was needed to make a watch that is wearable for everyone. Because of the simplistic face and dials it’s one of very few that will work with whichever outfit you ask it to. I really put it to the test here going full formal and found it's the perfect timepiece for the job. But let’s be real here, most days you’re not wearing a tux or even a suit of any kind. Your style may be extremely casual or you might like a pop of color on your wrist and that’s exactly where the beauty of these watches are found. Every watch at Lilienthal Berlin is fully customizable not only with the band but also dial and case color resulting in a the piece that you’ll love and trust.

Distressed Bit Still Dressed

[Blazer] Iceberg [Jeans & Shoes] Zara [Shirt] Hockerty [Tie] Minimum

Apparently distressed jeans are becoming a favorite of mine. I find myself wearing them more and more especially on days off when I have nowhere important to go. I was originally turned off by distressed denim because of how most influencers wear them. It’s become the norm for guys to wear slim fit ripped jeans with a pair of Yeezys and a Tommy Hilfiger or Calvin Klein logo tee. It’s clean and looks fine but is in noway creative or original to ones-self. I will not criticize other influencers for how they dress but I want to show you other options and let you decide for yourself what direction you wish to go in when it comes to personal style. Here I’m doing my best to dress up these jeans as much as I can. I kept the blazer pretty casual and a knit tie also helps bring down the formality of a tie. I think going with a dress shoe or loafer would be too much so I wore my go to white kicks. If this isn’t a look for you I have a much more casual distressed denim look from last winter and I’m sure that there will be a few more looks coming very soon. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like it!
