Man, this fall seems to be slowing us right down here at In Professorial Fashion. Postings, on my part, have been few and far between because I leave tomorrow for a conference trip to France, followed by a couple of days in Berlin, visiting my youngest sister who’s there organizing a conference for urologists. Leaving for a somewhat extended break, mid-semester, is one of the perks of the way my teaching schedule works out this term. However, unsurprisingly, it means that I need to get on top of both conference things, and things related to my absence (pre-trip grading, arranging guest lecturers and mid-terms, etc…).
Nonetheless, I have managed to take a couple of outfit pictures in the last week or so that have gone unblogged.
|Coral tank: Addition-Elle
Chartreuse tank: Target
Brown skirt: Gap
Brown suede flats: Joe
70s style, macrame necklace: RW&Co., ages ago
I posted a version of this outfit over the summer with shorts (or at least I think I did; I can’t seem to find the post however…), rather than the skirt, but I love the combination of coral and chartreuse. And with that much color up-top, the rest really needs to be neutral. I don’t think I’ve blogged this necklace before, which is crazy as it’s one of my favorites. I’ll try to wear it again soon and actually take a detail shot. I’m teaching until 7 pm this term and it’s really hard to take more than a couple of basic shots when I get home.

Purple tank: Target
Olive pencil skirt: Lane Bryant
Faux-snakeskin flats: Old Navy
Silver necklace that never photographs true to color: LOFT Outlet
This skirt purchase was inspired by Jessica over at Surely Sonsy
. She’s been rocking some awesome pencil skirts, reminding me how fantastic and versatile they can be. This one’s a ponte knit so it’s really comfy. I also bought it in charcoal grey so expect to see some version of that soon.
|Bright blue cardi & black tee: Gap
Brown pencil skirt: NY & Co.
Gold flats: Nine West
Silver pendant: H&M
As you can see with these last two outfits, I’m totally trying to make cooler weather happen here. With very little success. Nonetheless, this bright blue cardi is totally a workhorse for me, unexpectedly. I love how it jazzes it up an otherwise fairly unexciting combo.
I’ll try to take some outfit photos in exotic European locales but I make no promises. Hope you all have a good week or so!
