I was not compensated for this post – I just really dig the brand.
I’m a big believer in giving to those in need. It’s something I don’t do nearly as often as I would like, but I do try. And when I can’t get out there and do it myself, I do what I can to support companies that do.
Warby Parker is one of those companies and I am SO excited to be able to share a beautiful collection that they are launching today with you. If you haven’t heard of Warby Parker, they’re the go-to brand for stylish prescription glasses and sunglasses online. And while I love their styles and am impatiently waiting to get my new prescription to snag a pair of sunglasses of my own, I really love that they do more than just sell glasses.
For every pair purchased, a pair of glasses goes to someone in need. I can’t imagine not having my glasses or contacts because I’m pretty much blind without them. It’s something I take for granted because having glasses is so readily available in the United States. It’s common to need them and not considered to be a privilege to be able to purchase them. Obviously that’s not true in many parts of the world so I really stand behind what Warby Parker does and, honestly, what you can do if you choose to purchase your glasses with them.
But today, Warby Parker got even better. They partnered up with Karlie Kloss for the new collection below and a portion of each sale will be donated to Edible Schoolyard NYC. Edible Schoolyard NYC provides kitchens and gardens to low-income public schools, giving students the tools to develop lifelong healthy habits. And this is in addition to the buy a pair, give a pair program that they always have.
I’m loving all of the new looks, but I’m pretty sure The Marple will be in my hands as soon as I get my new prescription. And even if you’re not looking for a new pair of sunglasses, definitely check out Warby Parker for your regular prescription glasses needs.
