We’re in countdown to Spring Break mode here at IPF South. One week left to go and then a sweet, sweet break from teaching. This, of course, doesn’t mean a week off full stop as I have a pesky conference paper to write and ongoing revisions on my book. Plus, and this will particularly please A-Dubs, I’m dogsitting for a colleague most of the week so it’ll be a dog jamboree here. The mini-FR is beyond excited for all the bossing around he’ll get to do.
This week, my department is also hosting the first of two candidates for department head. This means a lot of long days filled with official socializing and serious talking with other colleagues. While this is all in the service of a larger good, it’s a bit exhausting at this point in the term (To be clear, it’s even more exhausting for the candidates!). This isn’t helped by the cloud of humid weather that has settled on us here, making the thought of putting fabric on one’s body an off-putting idea.
Nonetheless, I have perservered:
Jacket and Coral faux-wrap tank: Addition-Elle
Skirt: NY & Co.
Brown tights: Hue
Gold flats: Nine West
Necklace: LOFT Outlet
The mini-FR: Not actually hovering on some sort of non-Euclidean plane
I wore this last week before the humidity, trying to get in a final wear of this blazer before it really starts to heat up here. Between that outfit and today’s, I’m thinking I need to get another pair of neutral-ish flats. I love my colorful shoes but sometimes you need a neutral, and these gold ones are really my only option.
Striped turtleneck: Target
Gold flats: Nine West
Silver cuff: F21
Inspired by SFE’s experiments with outdoor photography, I moved my photo session outside today (neighbors’ prying eyes, be damned — though I suspect most of them were at work. Ah, the glories of my non-traditional work schedule). Like SFE, I’m converted. And I think this will be even better on a sunny day, rather than today’s cloudy gloominess. I’m also pretty sure I’ve worn some version of this outfit on the blog before but I can’t be bothered today to check. Anyway, this is an outfit that I find supremely comfortable so why labor under the illusion that I never wear the same pairing more than once?
Any good neutral flats you can point me in the direction of? (I hereby enable your online shoe shopping, Style Nation. You’re welcome)
