wordless Wednesday . . . 'first glasses'

Greetings all,
My littlest girl picked up her reading glasses on the weekend.  
 She's smiling now, my darling quirky one, wearing them at school to read & at home to sew.
I'm so proud she's coping so beautifully with being the only child in the family to need glasses.  She even wore her Converse sneakers to match her new cool frames.  For Wordless Wednesdays, check out Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love.  Love Posie

I love them!
I love her choice of frame and her quirkiness - i love seeing what she is wearing! Our Miss 10 is now used to wearing glasses, and thinks of them as an accessory - yay!XX

She looks fabulous! Love the funky colours and styles available for kids now. How cool that they match her sneakers:)

This is my darling 10 year old too. I'm so surprised at her lovely attitude, her friends are amazingly supportive & it's such a low script, she might not need them in a year's time. Her HUGE blue eyes just suited those frames, she's one impressive girl. Love Posie

Very cool that she has sneakers to match! :)

I had glasses at around that age and only ended up needing them for a few years.

Even if she does need them long term - glasses are so much nicer these days, they're a fashion accessory. :D

So cool, love the colour!

Gosh - I remember when I got glasses for the first time. I was in Year 4 and I hated wearing them SO much. My teacher always used to catch me out for not having them on. Mine were nowhere near as groovy as your daughter's! When I got to about 20, I loved wearing glasses and felt very strange the day I decided to get laser surgery and consequently never need them again! x

Oh how cool she looks - and grown up too! love the colour! Her frames are way cooler than mine - I might have to go looking to see what is available and improve mine - bit jealous!

Wow, how stylish are those glasses. I need a new pair myself - very tempting, but perhaps they wouldn't look so hot on a geriatric.

Calico Child said...

They really suit her, she looks gorgeous! My Mum could never understand it, but I always wished I wore glasses as a kid..

Maxabella said...

She looks super cool (but I'm a 40 year old woman, so don't tell her I just said that! Tellh er I said "she's not going out in THOSE is she!?!?"). x
