But I did pull together one last "At the Lectern" Outfit before I retreated. It's a bit bolder than I've been going lately, what with the print-matching and all, but I thought the simple shapes kept it all under control. That's my JCrew French Chicks-printed silk shirt worn under a striped, cotton-knit lightweight blazer I picked up at the Nice Things shop in Bordeaux last summer. A J Crew No. 2 pencil skirt (I'm so annoyed! the hem is unravelling and I'm going to have to spend an hour stitching it back up -- that shouldn't happen at that price point!). And the Think! shoes I picked up secondhand at a great little local consignment shop.
You'll note I'm still wearing tights with this outfit, worn two weeks ago. Sadly, I would still have to do so today, were I to wear a skirt. But I'm hoping that soon, all the transitional wear can be shifted away, and my garb can match the garden's promise (it's definitely spring out there -- more flower photos coming soon). In which case, I'd really better book a pedi.
And you? What's up today? Does your work or play dictate what you're wearing? Anyone just let the closet organize your day for you? Wear what you want and let the activity follow? I wonder what I'd get up to if I did that. . . . Hmmmmmm. . . .
