WI'mW-ing: Pattern, and new specs

Sorry for the bad/blurry photos today.

I rarely wear pattern, but I'm inextricably drawn to paisley-type designs. I'm happy to have this familiar silhouette on, and I'm liking my hair today, and the injection of color isn't hurting, either. High happiness here.

The magenta is just a tad too bright for me to wear comfortably some days, but I feel like I've been stuck in medium blue for so many days (apparently all my looser tops are that color) that I'm happy to wear something different.

New specs, too. I ditched the former new eyeglasses because we couldn't get them to fit right and I couldn't get comfortable with the visual heaviness on my face. I like these better, already more comfortable seeing them on my face. The "turquoise/aqua" (per the manufacturer) read as mint when I wore a top that color, but it matched perfectly with an aqua top the next day.

(ETA: And here you can see my specs from the last year.)

Any thoughts, comments, suggestions?

    You look gorgeous! Love the top & your hair, both framing your face so well. :D The new glasses are great too.

    Thanks, everyone! I do love a v-neck. I'm really enjoying these glasses, too.

    The glasses are great!  You've always been really good at picking out frames.  I'm a sucker for a good paisley print too, and this one is really nice :)

    Heh, Amy: DH usually picks out my frames. Sometimes I veto his more out-there choices, but that's about it. Probably has something to do with the fact that without my actual glasses on I can't see all that well?

    Haha - I guess I'm not surprised that he picks out your frames (and that some of his choices are way out there)  :)
