I guess it’s all the Christmas trees around, but this time of year I want to wear forest green all the time. I dug around on my Pinterest board and found an outfit or two combining camel + green, so I decided to try to make that color palette work.
Aside from the fact that this outfit makes me blend in with my backyard (ha!), I do like this outfit. I have a skirt in a similar color to these pants, so I can see multiple iterations of this look in the coming weeks!
The more time I spend as a PhD student, the more “relaxed” my personal dress code becomes. I still try not to wear jeans except on Fridays, but other than that, I feel pretty free to wear whatever I want, particularly now that I don’t even seen research participants anymore (I finished collecting data a few months ago). Anyway, one of the side effects of these increasingly casual outfits is that I rarely wear any of my blazers. I actually really like my blazer collection, so I’m trying to make a more concerted effort to wear them regularly.
First up is my camel blazer. Given my preference for brown + black these days, my color palette of choice on this day was obvious. Next time I think I’ll try layering a Christmas-y plaid shirt underneath 🙂
Just about a year ago, I spotted this look and loved it but didn’t have the pieces to re-create it. I kind of forgot about it for a while (as is typical for the outfits I save on Pinterest…) until this fall when J.Crew Factory featured this skirt a few months ago. I waited patiently for a good sale and bought it.
Obviously, for the first wear I had to re-create the aforementioned look. I was just wearing it to a casual dinner with family, so skipped the necklace and clutch. I really like the way it turned out! I have a few more ideas for how to wear this skirt, so be prepared to see it again in the future. How would you wear a buffalo plaid skirt?
I actually thrifted this vest quite some time ago, but I haven’t worn it because I didn’t really know how to wear it. You would think it would be relatively easy to style, given its neutral color…but I just couldn’t find the right pieces in my closet. I recently acquired both this ivory blouse and the tan mule booties that happen to match the vest perfectly, so I seized the opportunity to try out the combination.
It’s pretty simple, but I really like the look. It was perfect for a day of grocery shopping (amongst crazy pre-Thanksgiving crowds!) and cooking. But now I need more inspiration…how would you wear a shearling vest?
