If you squint really hard, you can almost see fall coming around the corner.

Be prepared to welcome it in with clear sight thanks to a pair of new specs from Warby Parker, opening tomorrow on South Congress Ave. The sleek new digs, decked out with framed locally-dyed indigo bandanas (pictured) and designed with the spirit of a classic library in mind, features elements like leather seating, custom illustrated maps that spotlight places to sit and read in the neighborhood, and stacked book shelves to salute the literary-inclined - the WP name is a combination of characters from the writings of Jack Kerouac. Stop in to shop the brand's chic specs suited for both the vision vexed and those in the market for seriously cool sunnies, all starting at $95 across the board, including prescription. 

Seeing's greetings.
