Boho Bookworm

October 19, 2014

This time of the year brings to mind a cozy sweater, a mug of hot coffee, a fireplace, and a good book.  The perfect addition to that scenario?  The Bookworm reading glasses from (shown here in marbled brown)!

The round frames are so on point right now!  

As an English teacher, I need reliable chic reading glasses to tackle all those books and essays.  I’m loving all the fashion forward choices at!

And I can’t resist an oversized chunky knit sweater … or fringe. 
Who can resist fringe?!

Outfit Details:
Sweater – Free People
Jeans – Old Navy Flirt Skinnies
Booties – Vince Camuto (DSWS)
Earrings – Nordstrom Rack
Glasses –  Bookworm (
Hope you get to spend some time soon cuddled up with a good book!

Thanks so much for stopping by, my sweet fabulous dolls!

    For years I tried to not wear glasses and finally got laser eye surgery in 2003. It was great until I found out about 2 years ago that I needed glasses and wear them all the time. I have 4 different styles I change out frequently. I never would have guessed I would actually enjoy wearing them now. Oh and I love the round frames your wearing.

      I enjoy wearing them now too, as a fashion statement! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

    It takes a gorgeous woman to wear glasses as well as you do, and they do look fabulous. So great to have a new outlook, isn't it? Very cool, that lovely fringy sweater. Hope you enjoy you snuggle and a good long read. I'm trying to blast through "Death Come to Pemberly" before Masterpiece Mystery this coming Sunday night … pacing so I'll enjoy it but not get spoilers when I watch the BBC treatment!
