When I was a kid I used to close my right eye and wonder why my left eye was so blurry. I mean, not blurry-blurry and it was never enough that I didn't pass (is that what you say?) my vision tests, BUT it was enough to make me play this "close one eye and look at everything around the room with my slightly unclear eye" game. Which I'm not gonna lie, was oddly entertaining for me.

It wasn't until about 5 years ago that I actually went to an optometrist and it turns out I have slight astigmatism in my left eye. I ended up with very low prescription glasses and my first week of trying them felt very weird, but also very CLEAR! I was honestly amazed how much clearer things looked. Glasses: they really help your eyes, who knew? Sadly, my glasses-wearing phase didn't last.

In the last couple years, though, I've noticed my eyes feeling more and more strained, especially working at my computer all day. I recently got a new pair of glasses from Eye Buy Direct to help. I was really excited that not only do they have my prescription but also "Eyezen" which protects and provides comfort from digital screens AND can help reduce eye strain and improve sleep! Totally needed. I got the Prism Tortoise Frames

Not only do they have eyeglasses, but they also have sunglasses, which you can get with or without a prescription. Do any of you wear glasses? If you DO (or even if you don't and you just want a new pair of sunglasses), Eye Buy Direct is offering 20% off your purchase with code "gold20." The code is good through March of 2017 AND I just saw that their Cyber Monday BOGO deal is still going on through 11/30, so it's a great time to snag a new pair. 

P.s. I'm writing this now with my super cool new glasses on and when I close my right eye, my left eye is like..way clear. Which is awesome and just what glasses are for—yay!

Happy Cyber Monday! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted to share an easy black & white look for fall. My closet is filled with white tops and I really love them for each and every season. This one by Sincerely Jules, unfortunately, sold out pretty quickly in white but is still available in black, which I love just as much. Black, white and grey tones are definitely my favorite "colors" and are so easy to mix and match. 

I also wanted to share a few more Cyber Monday sales if you're not shopped out just yet. My ASOS bag featured in this look is only $30 and you can get an additional 30% off with code THANKFUL30. My booties are also 52% off and under $50. I have them in black, too, and they're great for dressing up or down.

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! I wanted to take a minute to review some of my favorite Black Friday finds with you all. One of my favorite purchases from last year was this Halogen cashmere sweater and it's back on sale and a steal at $55. It comes in 15 colors and I'm wearing an xs. I also found this Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel in the color "tawny" on sale, which is so close to my almond one. This is my "goes-with-everything" bag and fits my Macbook Air perfectly. I linked my sunglasses on sale, too! 

Black Friday Sale Items: Topshop top. Current/Elliott jeans.

I almost never met a feminine top I didn't like. I looooove this one from Topshop (the color is a bit more pink in person) and it's another steal at $30. I'm wearing a US 2. 

Black Friday Sale Items: Sweater: Madewell. Jeans: Current/Elliott

Black Friday Sale Items: Sweater: Madewell. Jeans: Current/Elliott

This Madewell rolled turtleneck is maybe the softest I've ever worn. I love the neutral tone and how cozy it is. I'm actually wearing a medium because that's all they had in store, but I plan to order a small. I normally wear an xs, but I prefer the relaxed fit, so consider sizing up if you're the same. It's on sale for $52. I'm also obsessed with these Current/Elliott Stiletto jeans. I've never worn this brand, but they're SO comfy and I love the distress. I'm wearing my normal size. They run a little big through the waist (at least on me), but they fit so well otherwise, so I can deal or wear a belt. :)

Next purchase was this Forever21 faux suede jacket in olive—only $25, so I grabbed it in black too. (oops) It looks more like grey here, but it's definitely a soft olive and I really love it. I'm wearing a small. 

Black Friday Sale Item: Jacket: BlankNYC

Black Friday Sale Item: Jacket: BlankNYC

I actually bought this BlankNYC faux leather moto this past spring and it's now back in stock and on major sale—$51! It's one of my favorite brands for faux leather and I always wear an xs in their outerwear. I have this jacket in black too and love it, but I like the grey for a bit of a changeup and how it feels lighter for wear for every season. BlankNYC is also always my go-to for nights out.

Black Friday Sale Item: OTK Boots: Steve Madden.

Finally, I got TWO new pairs of boots. I didn't get a picture quite yet, but I grabbed this perfect pair of Franco Sarto block heel ankle boots with the cutest buckle detail. I love them a lot, but what I'm really, REALLY excited about is these Steve Madden over-the-knee boots. I have the hardest time ever finding tall boots that are fitted through the legs without any sort of bunching and gapping. I didn't want to spend $800 on the Stuart Weiztman Lowland, but I love these as a dupe. Sorry for the poor pic and showing them against black denim, but they're definitely the sleekest I've found and are a great price—just $96!

Oh and then I bought two Rebecca Minkoff bags from Shopbop that I've been needing and wanting—a crossbody in almond and one in mushroom. My go-to, goes-with-everything favorite styles!
