Styling ICU Eyewear

While I wait for my blue readers by ICU Eyewear to arrive—which I won in their giveaway!—I thought I’d style them a little.

Now, Dear Reader, you know I am committed to jeans, maybe more than I should be, so there are no pants shown here because I can tell you that when the readers show up at my apartment and I put them on for the first time I will be wearing jeans, either dark blue or white.

But when I take my ICU Eyewear readers out for a night on the town, this is what will join them!

Zara blazer, blouse and necklace by J. Crew.

I love this necklace in summer.

Since it’s late August, I’m thinking navy blue linen shirt, white blazer, sparkly necklace, and butter LONDON polish in Queen Vic, a great color as we begin the transition to fall. The blue readers will fit right in, don’t you think?

Speaking of blue, I love this poster for the new movie Blue Jasmine. I can tell you I will be wearing the readers on my head a lot, just like Cate Blanchett is wearing her sunglasses in this photo.

I will wear the readers in my hair, like Cate wears her sunglasses!

(Completely unrelated side note, I saw this movie last week and Cate Blanchett will get an Oscar nod, and possibly a Best Actress Oscar, for her part in this film. She is that good.)

Another great set of readers from ICU Eyewear up for grabs. Tiger stripes go with everything!

The ICU Eyewear giveaway is still ongoing, through August 27, 2013. Vote on your favorite pair of readers (they have the Dr. Dean line for men and Wink for women) and find out instantly whether you won them! If not, you get a 40% off coupon for a pair of readers purchased from their website, good through October 1, 2013.

They are giving away 1,000 pairs so why not vote for your chance to win! Enter the giveaway here. One entry per email address. Good luck!

Thank you to ICU Eyewear for sponsoring this post.

Hi Joanne,

Yay! I'm excited for you, those glasses are so great, I loved that pair too! XO, Jill

You wear white so well! I love your planned neutrals to backlight the blue and pattern of the readers. I have, if not the same, then a super similar necklace. And your comment about jeans completely resonates with me. (:

Hi Aya! Are you addicted to denim too? I try to get away from it but it's always calling my name. I had stopped wearing that J. Crew necklace awhile ago and then forgot I owned it (how does this always happen to me?). It was such a nice surprise earlier this summer to find it in its box! I have to do an inventory of what I own. Maybe there will be all sort of lovely surprises waiting for me, ha ha! XO, Jill

That necklace is beautiful and I love the way you styled this outfit for the readers. I can't wait to get mine!
I actually really do want to get my hands on them like yesterday as I have misplaced my hideous ones.

Jill said...

Hi Adrienne, I am so with you, hope the readers show up soon! The ones I have have little scratches on the lenses so the new ones can't get here fast enough. XO, Jill

Congratulations on your glasses! They look fab!
And I LOVE your necklace! Wow! So pretty!
You wear jeans a lot? Welcome to the club, me too. My friends say I was born in them ;-)
Have a wonderful week :-) xo

Hi Happyface, yes to jeans! I have switched to lighter pants in cotton twill when it's hot, or sometimes a skirt, but one of my favorite moments in fall is realizing I can wear jeans again without feeling overheated. We are having a hot day here in NYC so I'm wearing white (and lightweight) capris! XO, Jill
