This week’s deluges mean that real summer is just around the corner. The weather is getting hotter, and for some of us, muggier, teasing us with the promise of gorgeous days that make you want to pack a bag for the beach, spread a picnic blanket at the park or take to the woods. That means it’s time to get your glasses in order; no more waiting around because summer is here!
You don’t just want to dust off your worn out old shades. You want your face to shine, and you want to really appreciate the beauty that the world come-alive has to offer. That’s what our glasses do, and this Frame Friday is dedicated to the frames and lenses that are perfect if you’re looking to spruce up your ensemble and make sure you don’t miss a chance to stop and see – as well as smell – those new roses.
Color is the name of the game, and these dynamic, functional frames give you just the right amount of style. A splash of color that you will be happy to wear to the office and important meetings, exciting frames that are still fun enough for a weekend, and comfort that will leave you happy with your new frames no matter what your doing – summer is the time to try and have it all, and these colorful glasses deliver.
It might not actually be time to head to the beach, but that shouldn’t stop you. You have just enough time to find the right pair of glasses and get your style up to speed with the warmth and fun of the season. If you want every-day glasses that look awesome, are appropriate for professional and casual occasions, and really hope to enjoy some summer sun at the beach, Frame Friday has got you covered this week.

May 18 is International Museum Day, making now the perfect time to head over to your local museum and brush up on your culture. And there’s no reason your glasses shouldn’t help you polish your look while you do, lending hip style and an air of refined intelligence. Throw on a pair of these sophisticated frames and you’ll find yourself agreeing that “Yes, that Manet is a thrilling study of the enthralling color and light present in nature.”
That’s the thing about great frames. They do more than transform your outward appearance; they can also change the way you see yourself and thus the way you think. As you stroll the galleries or walk your children through the exhibit on Medieval swords you might even discover that you are grateful for International Museum Day and the excuse to soak it in. Then you might enjoy further musings about how you ended up so cool. And worst of all, if you see yourself in your stylish new frames, you’ll probably have to agree with yourself that yes, you do look good.
After all, you can’t deny that with frames this good at flirting with the lines between established-cool, cutting edge, retro, and not trying too hard, you should feel as attractive as you look. There’s another advantage to wearing a new pair of hip glasses to the museum – you can see better to appreciate the exhibits more thoroughly.
Why not spend this year’s International Museum Day enjoying the culture and intellectual stimulation of a great museum while giving everyone else something nice to look at – you and your hip new glasses!

Mother’s Day has comes and gone, but this Frame Friday is about extending Mother’s Day weekend to Monday, because really, isn’t Mom worth it? Whether you’re thinking of your Mom or are a mother yourself, it’s time for something special. Our awesome frames are the perfect way to switch up your glasses and treat yourself with an infusion of fun, comfort, and dynamic style that you can put on every day. Don’t you deserve to see a new smile on your face in the mirror on the way out every morning?
Mother’s Day is about honoring mothers for the other 364 days of hard work and self sacrifice that they put in every year. When you thank a Mother, you should probably do something for them to make that thank you meaningful and help make their life easier. That’s absolutely what a better pair of frames does. When your Mom (or you) likes the way she looks in the only accessory that she wears every day, the rest getting ready and feeling good gets much easier.
The advantage of glasses you love might not be obvious, especially for hardworking Moms who are used to sacrificing. But it’s pretty simple; when you wear something every day, and on your face no less, it has an impact on how you look in the mirror and thus how you perceive yourself. So take the time to tell your Mom that she deserves glasses she feels good in and she’ll be grateful.
Choosing the right glasses and frames is a matter of personal taste. But with Zenni and the awesome choices you can find every Frame Friday, you know you’ll see something that suites your tastes. And if you’re still trying to find the right Mother’s Day gift for your Mom in glasses, maybe just casually leave this page open and see what she says. There’s no chance she won’t find something to love.

The better the weather, the less appealing Spring cleaning becomes. But one of the changes you won’t want to miss is updating your wardrobe. Coats, jackets, and warm pants get into the closet and all those skirts and shorts and sandals come out. As people get ready to shed their extra garments, it’s a great time for you to pick the perfect glasses for the season. Updating the most consistent piece of your wardrobe has never been easier than with these awesome new frames.
The thing about summer is that people are always ready for it before it comes. That means you’re testing your tank tops, trying out those floral tees and dresses, and doing everything you can to think like it’s already warm enough to soak up some sun. And when people doff their coats and pants, they may need a bit more fashion on their faces, just to balance things out. If color is your style, or you really want to add a bit of consistent structure, the right frames can make your glasses perfect for this task.
And don’t forget that Spring and Summer are a time for rebirth and renovation, so it’s the perfect occasion to update your eye wear right as May gets going. If you’re sticking with dark frames, a bit of extra design or color might be in order, or at least some dynamic frames that energize your face. And if not, you can always opt for minimalist frames that emphasize the natural beauty of your eyes.
No matter what new frames strike your fancy you can’t deny that a new pair of glasses can change anything. And while Spring cleaning isn’t the kind of revitalization that excites you, maybe a new fashion statement is.

It’s Arbor Day, the perfect time to hug a tree. Whether is your personal spirit guru (though rarely bespectacled, the man did have a dominant beard) or you have to look up the arbor, the last Friday in April tells us two things: Earth Day already happened, and we’re more than half way through Spring. There’s no better way to celebrate nature than by getting out there and experiencing it as it comes to life. And you’ll see, feel, and enjoy Mother Nature better with the right glasses. In the real world, those thousand-word pictures everybody’s talking about won’t have quite the same impact if you can’t see through old glasses nor bare to be seen in those frames.
Fortunately, we’ve got the right frames for you, you Earth-conscious, appropriately hip and thoughtful celebrator of Arbor day. Whether subtle style, essential comfort, effective functionality, or splashy color are your thing, you can find the right frames and lenses to enjoy nature’s soothing hues in the clear detail that was always meant to be. Not only does this mean you might more fully enjoy the brilliant colors of a bird you spot, you’re also less likely to crash into a low branch and be reminded of your “cityfied” side.
But be warned. These is no turning back once you put on the right pair of glasses. You’ll be spoiled forever, never again content to wear ill-fitting, ugly frames with old lenses that aren’t the right prescription. And if you take the time to celebrate Arbor day in your new glasses… Consider yourself ruined, forever doomed to remember the simple beauty of a natural scene seen through appropriate glasses. What a lesson to learn on Arbor Day.
