When I was in the 4th grade, I remembering wanting glasses so badly. They're accessories! For your face. A friend of mine received a purple-framed pair at the start of the school year, and I thought they were just beautiful. Oh, how that lavender hue would surely compliment the bold laser background of a school portrait! But alas, just as my teeth were too straight for the braces I also coveted at the time, my eyesight was sharp and my own prescription rx eluded me (what is it with kids and wanting braces and glasses?).

Despite not needing a prescription, my glasses obsession has continued in the form of a rather substantial sunglasses collection. So I was delighted when Bonlook offered to send me a couple of pairs to style up! Instead of picking out two pairs for myself, I thought it would be fun to do a style post with Chris, who actually requires a prescription. Not surprisingly, to me at least, when it came to picking out our glasses we chose the same pair. Despite having vastly different takes on style and fashion, Chris and I have a tendency to like the same things and are occasionally (accidentally) known to dress very similarly - especially on the weekends.

While my personal take on style tends to be highly emotional and can vary from day to day, Chris is steadfast in the things he likes. Like me, he appreciates vintage, but his focus is more on the classics. Those timeless items a man needs in his wardrobe: good denim and a wool jacket, solid boots, leather gloves.

Today, Bonlook is offering one lucky winner a pair of glasses or sunglasses of their own!

That is kind of adorable, how you guys like the same stuff and ended up liking the same frames! It's actually very interesting to see the same frame as spectacles AND as sunnies, so that was pretty cool!

Yes to everything about this outfit! Julie you are seriously the queen at layering, you make it just look so amazing and effortless. I'm really loving the denim and lace combo. And Chris looks pretty darn awesome in his outfit as well. You two just too freaking adorable.

Chris looks great, but his expression is a little bit "sad Etsy boyfriend"...

You guys make the glasses look swell.

I definitely have noticed that it varies a lot on different posts. it's great you don't confine yourself to a specific asthetic. but of course Chris can't go wrong w/ this classic look either. you two are so stylish! and i love the purple tights w/ this look, great jumper & nice specs you both. i also always wanted glasses but still dont need them.
