Back To School with JCPenney Optical

Pookah went Back to School shopping with @JCPenneyOptical! #JCPOptical #ad


Back to school shopping is a long never-ending process. I’m convinced it’s not just a weekend, but a month long journey to get every single thing needed to have a great school year. We finally got all of our school supplies together, but there was one thing left on my list:


Pookah started wearing glasses earlier this year and let me just say that that pair of glasses met it’s end…..little boy style ( meaning…I don’t know what happened to them, all I know is that he can’t wear them anymore.)


Pookah was ok with the demise of his glasses because..they weren’t cool. He is one of the few who wears them in his class and even though Daddy wears glasses….It’s ALL ABOUT BEING COOL.

So when it was time to go back to school shopping for glasses, I decided to go with him, and get a pair too. I remember not feeling cool because I wore glasses too.  It  had been three years since my last pair and well….for some reason, Pookah thinks his Mommy is cool. 🙂

I knew we needed great looking glasses at a great price, so we headed on over to JCPenney Optical.  I was so surprised to find great fashion eyewear at great prices for BOTH of us.

I loved how they let him pick his own glasses while directing him towards ones that would be best for him.

In the end, Pookah chose the cutest pair from Converse.

Pookah got the cutest little case that he carries attached to his book bag so we don’t have to worry about this pair reaching an unfortunate end. And we are IN LOVE with our new glasses!

Oh my goodness! He is so stinking cute!! Your son looks like he will be knocking down the doors "school ready" this year. I had no idea JCP offered this for back to school. That just added to my already growing list of why I love JCP. Please keep me updated on how well he takes care of them.

My back to school should include glasses because I'm the one in need now. I need to get my boys' eyes checked as well. I know they get screenings at the drs office but I'm sure it wouldn't help to have a professional screening.

He looks great with his new Converse glasses! It's funny because my daughter doesn't need glasses but wants glasses because she thinks it looks cool. I didn't know JcPenny had an optical section, so this was really good to know. Sharing on my twitter and pinterest!

Cute! You both look great. Glad it was a positive experience for him. I remember being young and I hated wearing glasses! JC Penny has such good prices for everything.
