Shirt: the one I wearΒ all the timeΒ from a local boutique, Cardigan: Gap, Pants: Banana Republic, Shoes: Reflections, Belt: Forever 21, Glasses: Converse, Braided Bracelet: c/o Jessica N. Designs, Wrap Bracelet: c/o Lee La La

It turns out I have astigmatism.
Not a stigmatism.
And yes, it took me 27 years to learn the difference.
So I got me some fancy schmancy glasses.
And now I’mΒ trying to get used to them.
Holla if you wear glasses!

I’m linking this outfit up to The Pleated Poppy and Real Momma, Real Style.

  6. I love them!! They are so cute!!

  7. I’ve been an all-day glasses wearer since 6th grade! Astigmatism hangs out in my eyes like it’s cool.

  8. A glass wearer here too, since I was an iddy biddy girl. Am blind in my left eye and have a bad seeing right eye so really need them. Sometimes I wear a (yes one lol) contact lens too, just for fun. These look very good on you. I can’t wear a dark frame, makes my face washed out so wear either rimless or a light colored one πŸ™‚

  9. Hmmm…I have no idea what the difference is. You look awfully cute in glasses though.

  12. I have worn glasses since middle school and LOVE them. I also have Astigmatism. A few years ago, I tried contacts and people did not recognize me at work. It was pretty funny! You look great, Love the frames!

  13. Holla, I just got similar Ray Bans for being far-sighted. (not the opposite of near-sighted ) and I love them!! And yours, you look super cute!

  14. i, too, used to think it was ‘a stigmatism’. haha
    i think the glasses are adorable. i used to have two-toned, cat-eye glasses about 10-12 years ago (during the Lisa Loeb era). I totally loved them. I love yours as well. Rock’em girl!

  15. You look so cute in your glasses!

  16. They look awesome on you! Oh and I have no idea the difference either. xoxo

  17. I have an astigmatism as well. I just switched from glasses to contacts and with the astigmatism, it was a pain to find contacts that worked! Your glasses look adorable on you!

  18. After 7 years of wearing glasses and 17 years of wearing contacts… my eyes have revolted and I have been instructed to wear glasses once again. So, naturally, I bought a fancy new pair! You look great in yours. πŸ™‚

  19. I found out last year that I have an astigmatism too… glasses are cute, though…luckily! πŸ™‚

  20. I don’t wear glasses, but those look good on you! My daughter is going through a phase where she wants to wear glasses because some of the cool kids in her class has them! πŸ™‚

  21. Lindsay Lee says:

    You look HOT in glasses….just sayin πŸ™‚ LOVE YOU GIRL!

  22. I have astigmatism in one eye, and my fiance in both.

    I need new glasses because the ones I wear (only at night) are all jacked up, lol.

    You look super cute πŸ˜€

  23. I wear contacts usually, but I am wearing my glasses right now! Yours are absolutely adorable!!

  24. I have Astigmatism too, and some fun glasses πŸ™‚

  25. I absolutely LOVE the glasses. I’ve always been a fan of dark frames!

  26. You look totally cute!

    I got my first pair of glasses when I was 12, and I still get excited every time I get to pick out new frames. πŸ™‚

  27. holla! you look cute though πŸ™‚ love the shoes

  28. Yay! I wear them too! I love the frames you got…I’ve been thinking about getting me some like that…

  29. I started wearing glasses when I was 7 years old!!! Hated it way back then, but I’ve kind of grown in to them. πŸ™‚

  30. Leigh Anne says:

    I’ve got astigmatism too πŸ™‚ Finally committed to the glasses in college when I couldn’t see the chalkboard to take notes and didn’t wanna fail!! haha! Once I put my glasses on, I couldn’t believe what I wasn’t seeing! I had no idea my apartment was so dusty or my floor so dirty…..gross! With the glasses on, I could see it all so clearly. Now, I’m 33 and have worn glasses every since. A few years ago I heard about saving $$ by ordering glasses online…..what?? I wanted some cute ones and didn’t wanna spend a bunch of money at the optical shop so I tried it. Been doing it every since! Have ordered at least 10 pairs. The advantage for me is that because they are cheap – I can have many pairs to match my many moods or outfits….yay for a fashion statement! I took the plunge after reading this blog:
    I’ve ordered from and both several times with no troubles πŸ™‚
    Your glasses are super cute, BTW – keep rockin’ ’em for all of us glasses girls!

  31. HOLLA!!!! πŸ™‚ You look adorable in glasses and I love your outfit. You are so cute Ashley!

  32. I’m right there with you on the astigmatism/ a stigmatism thing. I also have one. I love your glasses! Big plastic frames are the best!

  33. Holla! I’ve worn glasses since the 2nd grade. Yours look great on you!

  34. I also have astigmatism! And I also thought it was called a stigmatism! Yay for being ignorant about eye health care thingy!

    Cute glasses by the way! Love them. πŸ™‚

  35. You look great with those glasses!

    Holla, although I don’t wear mine much anymore. I was 5 and wore glasses everyday, all the time for 13 years and fixed my near sighted-ness and lazy eye. My first glasses were so thick, they were like coke bottle bottoms!

  36. Holla! I have glasses too but hardly ever wear them. The last time I did, it was for church so I could see what we were singing, and I got one of the worst headaches ever! Something’s not right. I’m pretty sure that shouldn’t happen.

  37. Holla, Me too on the astigmatism!

  38. holla from another glasses (contacts) wearer! you look ADORABLE btw!! πŸ™‚

  39. I have been wearing glasses since I was about 5 and have a severe astigmatism. Mine is so bad that even weighted contacts would not stay put so I am a glasses wearer. My best advice: Buy a pair of prescription sunglasses that you really love, especially if you suffer from migraines. Once you get a great pair, you will see your migraines and carsick episodes drop and you will never want to be outdoors without them. I lost my Ralph Lauren sunglasses in the lake this year and have been depressed about it since…


  40. HOOOOOLLLLLLLAAAAAAA! Those glasses are cute chica!

  41. Super cute! You’re lucky that glasses look nice on you. I’ve worn glasses since I was 9, so getting them at 27 isn’t all that bad, hey? And it just so happens that there are a billion cute frames out there now… it’s just a whole new world of accessories! πŸ™‚

  42. Since having my babies my eyes just now went bad! I have to rock glasses at night especially white driving and some days I even feel like I could use them more.. ugh! Yours are darn cute. I might have to look into something like that.

  43. super cute outfit! I have astigmatism too and I love my glasses but they always give me a headache so I just squint my way through like lol

  44. i have an astigmatism as well! the glasses are super cute, you’ll sport them just fine πŸ™‚

  45. Yep, glasses AND contacts here! I have an astigmatism too… πŸ™ Your glasses look great!!!

  46. Cute glasses! I wear them too. I can’t wear contacts anymore (chronic dry eyes and steroid drops freak me out) so I got a cute pair and finally learned to wear them daily. Not so bad πŸ™‚ Now if I could just afford a couple more pairs, I’d love to swap them out.

  47. You always look so adorable! And I love your new glasses too!

    I have an astigmatism in one eye – the last time I went to get my eyes checked they gave me contacts specifically for astigmatism, and it’s bigger than normal contacts – kinda weird to get used to. (Although I’m more likely to wear my glasses than my contacts – they’re just easier)

  48. Love your style!

  49. Veronica Carpenter says:

    HOLLA! I recently found out I have an astigmatism too πŸ™‚ I got some cutey glasses but they drive me crazy because the frames are a little narrow and I can see them all the time…. I want to get a new pair with a little bigger frames, but alas can’t spend the moolah….I am sorry to say I don’t wear my glasses nearly as much as I should!!! I LOVE your pair! LOVE LOVE LOVE….not to mention everything you’re wearing!

  50. The glasses look awesome! and the green and white braided bracelet that you’re wearing….is awesome! I luv it!

  51. You look great in those glasses! Wish I could pull off great frames like that! And as an optometrist’s wife, I feel it is my duty to confuse you more about astigmatism! Technically you have astigmatism, not “an” astigmatism πŸ™‚ It’s like saying you have an asthma. Sounds so awkward without “an” I know…I still mess it up. Ok, my duty is done! (you can ignore this comment and leave it as is, I just feel better now).

    • so here’s the funny thing…I actually wrote it that way the first time and then I went back and was like “neh, that doesn’t look right”–and I went and changed it, lol! so funny! thanks for the heads up πŸ™‚ xoxo, ashley

  52. Who ever said that “guys don’t make passes at girls that where glasses”? psshaw! Girl, you look adorable! I have an astigmatism, too AND get this! One eye is near sighted and the other is far sighted!
    K, here is MY deal! I get a new pair of glasses when I have my yearly eye exam and then, because I’m a girl, I order different colored frames and lenses online, to wear with different outfits! Seriously, you just fill out the online form with your prescription. (Call your optometrist and ask for your paper prescription. Make sure you ask for your PD.) Here are a few sites I’ve used: Goggles4u Eyeglasses, EyeBuyDirect) Just Google “buying eyeglasses online”. They often send out emails for BOGO offers. It’s a fun way to dress up your cute tops with matching specs! ~ jo

  53. um, that was supposed to say, “girls that WEAR glasses”!

  54. I have astigmatism, too. haha and I wear glasses.

  55. Ooh… I do, I do! And for the same reason… I have like a half of a point prescription in one eye, and none in the other… but I have an astigmatism that causes major migraines and focus issues if I go glasses-less … I first got them in middle school, then (unsuccessfully) tried contacts, then quit wearing them altogether… I survived through college, but when I started working a “real” job in front of a computer screen, alas, I had to go back to the four-eyed life. πŸ™‚

  56. whats your astigmatism prescription?

  57. Wonderful web site. Plenty of useful information here.
    I am sending it to several pals ans additionally sharing in delicious.
    And of course, thank you to your effort!

    i ordered bifocal from
    they are great too when you see the delivery time because most often zenni and others take too much time.
