navy stripes + coral ruffles

Now that my summer is coming to an end, I feel the need to wear all of my summer clothes in these last few days. Although it will continue to be plenty hot for another month or so around here, shorts and sleeveless tops aren’t necessarily the most appropriate for either attending class or conducting research. So that’s why you’ll see me wearing a lot of my “fun” clothes for the next couple of days!


This outfit is pretty girly for me–a flouncy skirt and ruffles?!–but I felt that this blouse needed to get at least one wear this summer. Maybe a navy pencil skirt would have been a better choice for the sake of balance?
