Today’s post features not one, but two outfits. Neither of which I’m wearing today. One outfit I wore yesterday, and the other I intended to wear today. However, I felt like crap when I woke up this morning so I cancelled both class and this outfit. After sleeping all morning, I’m feeling significantly better. Enough that I played dress-up for the blog. I intend to wear this outfit more or less as is for Friday, my next teaching day. Today (and, let’s be honest, probably tomorrow too) I’m wearing the perennially fashionable pajama-like ensemble.
I wasn’t initially going to post yesterday’s outfit. Mostly because I wasn’t happy with the pictures, which I feel are stumpifying but today I’m ok with them. I really liked the outfit. It’s not a silhouette or palette that I typically wear so it was fun to try it out. More importantly, it was comfortable–if slightly warm for the weather here which is cooler but not really that cool–and a good outfit for having to be on campus briefly but not teaching.
Tunic: Old Navy (remixed)
Jeans: Old Navy
Gold flats: Nine West
Today’s (err, Friday’s…) outfit is still somewhat a work in progress. I’m not happy with the shoe choice but am feeling a little stumped (Note the thematic connection across paragraphs. Clearly I am an astonishingly good writer) about what to wear instead. My inclination is to go for color but I’m worried that might look a bit clownish. What I need are Rad’s awesome yellow flats.
Top: Target (part of my back-to-school stripe buying extravaganza)
Skirt: Old Navy
Black patent flats: Target
Brooch: Grandma J
Also, I’m not typically a brooch wearer but I want a bit of brightness in the outfit and, inspired by Sheila’s leaf-brooch from her grandmother, I brought out this brooch I inherited from my grandma. It’s one of the few pieces she brought to Canada from Norway when they immigrated so it’s pretty special. And also fantastically Art-Deco-ish.
Anyone else really ready for September to be over? And yet simultaneously terrified that it’s nearly October?
