Warby Parker + The Blonde Mule


Last week I was contacted by Warby Parker to help launch their new Concentric Collection. Other companies have asked me to do this in the past, but I've never said yes. When Warby Parker reached out and asked me to help, I gleefully accepted! I LOVE Warby Parker. Buying glasses is expensive, yo, but Warby Parker glasses start at $95, which includes prescription lenses. And for every pair sold, they distribute a pair to someone in need. You can read more about my experiences with Warby Parker here and here.

Now, on to their new Concentric Collection. This collection introduces three new styles:  Benchley, Murphy and Everly. They're also introducing a new color:  Whistler Grey. I'm in the market for new glasses and am really feeling the Murphy in Crystal with Hazelnut (above). I like the idea of these clear frames against pale, pink hair, not that I have pink hair anymore, but hey, a girl can dream.

I'm also into the new Whistler Grey with Fjord Blue color combo. Maybe in either Everly or Benchley. I'm over tortoise and feel like these grey-blue frames will compliment the head-to-toe black I tend to wear all winter. They'll also go well with the matte red lipstick I'll be sporting until spring thaw.

I currently wear Warby Parker Ainsworth in Walnut Tortoise, but a lot of people have these big, round glasses and I'd like something that no one else has yet. Plus, when you lose a lot of weight, your face gets smaller and I'm interested in seeing what a different style and shape would look like on me now.

Let's talk about prescription sunglasses. I'm into them. I bought my first pair two years ago and am honestly astounded that I didn't crash my car on a daily basis before wearing them. The pair I currently own is Warby Parker Winston in Revolver Black, but I'd like to upgrade to a new pair, especially since I cracked mine during a bike race this summer.

It was a blast teaming up with Warby Parker to help launch this collection. It's hard to get excited about fashion when you're facing months of being bundled up in coats and scarves, but new glasses I can 100% get behind. Now I just have to decide which pair(s) I want for myself. Are you there, Santa? It's me, Kim.

Warby Parker asked me to help launch this collection, but this is not a sponsored post. They did not compensate me in any way. As a long-time customer of theirs, I was thrilled to be asked to do this. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are solely representative of yours truly.

Warby Parker Concentric Collection available December 9 online and in stores; starting at $145.
