Hi all! I’m back, States-side, after a lovely excursion to France and Germany. It was a packed 10 days, full of baguettes, nutella crepes, wine, schnitzel and giant beers. So, in other words, pretty awesome. I even managed to keep my spending to only-slightly excessive, going on a bit of scarf-buying binge. But now I’m back in the world of reality, made all too real by the stack of mid-terms I had waiting for me on my return.
When I was in Berlin, my sister was there, helping organize a conference for 3000+ urologists so I got to tag along to the banquet dinner. My sister kindly took my single outfit picture from the trip.

Ruffle-y top: Joe
Charcoal pencil skirt: Lane Bryant
Tights: Target, I believe
Gold Flats: Nine West
I wasn’t really expecting to go to this, so I had limited options for dressiness. However, it gave me a chance to wear my new pencil skirt which I hadn’t worn during my conference because it was so freezing in the conference room that I wore pants the whole time.

Multi-colored circle scarf: Vero Moda (part of my German haul)
Blue suede shoes, obscured by mini-FR blur: Jessica Simpson
This was my outfit for yesterday’s return to the classroom. There’s a lot going on with the scarf so I thought a neutral backdrop was probably necessary — and allowed the scarf to be the star. Be prepared for a number of similarly scarf-centric outfits from me in the next little while to showcase my purchases!
