These photos were taken the day after I got LASIK.  I had to wear sunglasses all the time, even indoors.  I had mega eye boogies from the drops I had to keep applying and because I couldn't rub my eyes.  I was tired; the previous night's sleep was a bit weird since I took such a long nap that day (you take a nap after LASIK to let the eyes heal) and had to wear eye shields.  My vision was great but still a bit hazy and the sunglasses didn't help.  My follow-up appointment was at 8am and I didn't want to be a schlub, but I felt like wearing pajamas.  This look is the next best thing.

My gold Ray-Ban aviators are the least dark which helped navigating around on a grey winter day.  I added gold jewelry to up the glam hoping the effect would be more diva and less random person in sunglasses indoors.  I'll be sure to provide a full recap of my LASIK experience once I've had all my checkups, but so far so good!

    You inspired me: I just bought a pair of faux leather leggings and they look great.

    You look great. Distinctly NOT schlub or pajama-like.
    I love everything you are wearing and want them all!

    Congrats on making the LASIK leap. I had PRK (the old version of the treatment) 10 years ago and it is the best thing I ever did.

    I’m digging both the top and those gorgeous looking pants! Wow! You “look” fabulous, excuse the pun, as if you didn’t have a care in the world walking in the cold. There is no way I could tell that you were dealing with the after effects of your Lasik surgery. You are still super photogenic!

    I myself am taking the day off getting last minute tasks done (blood work and chest x-ray) in preparation for my shoulder surgery in two and half weeks. I’ll have plenty of time to enjoy and comment on your daily posts.

      Thank you Sonia! And best to you with this surgery, I know you’re not looking forward to it but it will be so worth it! <3

    I love that top! I’ve added it to my wish list in the hope that it will go on sale. I could see myself pretty much living in it. 🙂 Congrats on the Lasik! I had crazy, rare, bad side effects (that were eventually resolved) and it was still the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I hope you love it!

    I liked the top thinking it was a sweater, when I realized it is a sweatshirt and so multi-functional I fell in love! Not in my current budget but now that I know such a thing exists I will be looking for one…

    I love that top! Also, have you talked about those pants elsewhere? I am still looking for leather-look leggings…
