So, on Monday, we had D-Med’s thoughts on J.Crew cashmere, complete with photos of arm warmers. Today, you have pictures of me, bare legged. We like to cover all the bases here at IPF.
Down here at IPF South, we’re basically out of our 6 week winter (or what passes for such here) and are moving rapidly into the warm spring. This means each day covers a wide spectrum of temperatures, with occasional torrential downpours. Not helping matters, the various temperatures in university buildings vary widely so while my office is often on the cool side, the classroom I teach in is often boiling. Layers have thus been a godsend.
In addition to constantly changeable weather, the approaching spring is making me desperately want color in my wardrobe options. I’ve long been admiring various blogger’s colorful pencil skirts but have been unwilling to shell out the money for one. Once again, Target comes to the rescue where I bought not 1 but 3 pencil skirts in veritable rainbow of colors. They only had 3 colors; believe me, if there had been more options I probably would have bought them!
Can you spot the mini-FR in this picture? Even though this picture was taken later in the evening, its colors are definitely bright! This may well be one of my favorite all-time outfits. As a bonus, it gave me a chance to wear this yellow top which I got last fall at the outlets but have had trouble wearing. This is, in part, because it’s made of rayon so just looking at it causes it to wrinkle; therefore, it really needs to be under something. It’s also got a rounded neck, rather than my preferred v-neck, so it helps to pair it with this v-necked workhorse of a cardigan.
Here’s the same skirt in a periwinkle blue (I also got a teal one but I haven’t worn it yet). Both skirts are made out of my favorite ponte knit fabric so they’re super comfortable. Combine that with this super soft, drape-y cardigan I bought with A-Dubs, and a cotton tank, and this is totally office pajamas. Plus I even got my seemingly required pop of coral here in my nails!
How’s everyone managing the end of February? As excited about March and the subsequent arrival of Spring Break as I am?
