Cheating The System


Sweater: Thrifted (Croft and Borrow)
Jeans: Thrifted (Levi's)
Sneakers: Converse
Glasses: Wallmart

Some days are low key and all you have on schedule is to stay in your room and do homework, and maybe run to the store for a bit just to buy flowers:) That was basically my weekend! I had loads of homework, studying, and projects to work on and with a weekend like that one has to get comfortable......and my by comfortable I mean over sized sweaters, thrifted jeans for when you run to the store, sneakers, and sweat pants when you are back home. The best part about low key weekends is NO MAKEUP! Yep, these are the first pictures I have posted on my blog where I wasn't wearing makeup, but that is kind of my premise for this post......cheating the system....how you ask???

Okay, so weekends are just about the only time I don't wear makeup and I will admit that it is quite refreshing to just be "all natural" and let your skin breath. Therefore, when I go out and run to the store I like to look slightly put together even though the weekend (Saturday) is when I really don't care, so here is my secret for cheating the system. First, you might be wondering "Do you wear glasses?" and my answer would be no:) However, I LOVE fake glasses and this pair always makes me feel extra hipster! Therefore, here is my secret. My view is for people who do wear glasses, most of them choose to wear contacts on a regular basis and only on low key and errand days do they forgo contacts and reach for their glasses instead. Thus, my rational is that when I choose not to wear makeup and dress comfortably it is my chance to grab a pair of glasses. Why? For some reason when I put on glasses on my low key days, when I really don't always care how I look but I want to appear slightly put together, for some reason in my mind the glasses take away from the fact that I am not wearing any makeup and well.....they just look cute! They have truly become my weekend accessory:) I guess this look is inspired by those who done the effortless look on low key days where they wear a comfortable pair of jeans, classic sweater or tshirt and sport their glasses proudly because they didn't feel like putting on contacts.....basically I am choosing to not to completely care what I look like, while at the same time cheating the system in reached for my fake glasses to complete my look instead!

Do you wear real glasses?
If you don't wear glasses have you ever tried fake glasses?
What do you think about glasses being used to cheat the system?

P.S. Don't forget to leave me your questions HERE for my Q&A coming in two weeks!!

  1. Sweet and comfy weekend outfit! :)
    As a girl who wears glasses all her waking hours day, I don't fully grasp the idea of fake glasses, but am glad that others think of what is a necessity for me as an accessory, because glasses can be cute! ;)
    Also, this is random, but I suddenly realized that you look like Rosamund Pike! Perhaps you've heard that?

  2. Okay, now you have me wanting to try fake glasses! And girl, you are so beautiful without makeup and I commend you for posting pics without any makeup!

    I love this look and you pull it off so effortlessly. For me, casual is jean shorts and a t-shirt, usually paired with a headband, pearl earrings, and keds.

    Can't wait for the Q&A!

  3. I loved reading this article, Madison because I can totally relate! I wear glasses but my eye site isn't that bad. I wear my glasses only when I'm driving at night. However when I don't feel like putting on make up I wear my glasses all day. I feel like my glasses are the way to brighten up my face and make me look more awake! Love your outfit too! I just bought some coral pink Converse, today...a white pair are on my list of things to get!

  4. I wear glasses and definitely embrace them as part of my personal style. lol I only wear contacts when need be (for rougher activities) but glasses are my preference. Those look cute on you. And you look beautiful with and without makeup!

  5. I have tried fake glasses before, and they are so interesting to wear. But I love your logic behind using them to look put together when you aren't wearing make-up. I don't wear make-up for most days of the week, unless I am going out. I honestly couldn't tell that much that you weren't wearing make-up in this post!

  6. You are so adorable! You're absolutely beautiful without makeup. : ) I love the idea of wearing fake glasses! I wear contacts, and every now and then I"ll wear a pair of fake glasses, just because some of my fake glasses are cuter than my real glasses haha!

  7. Lovely, cozy looking outfit. I'll forever adore oversized sweaters (and sweatshirts), too. They whisk me right back to my youth. :)

    Many hugs & happy start of March wishes,
