Take One, Pass It on: Day 25

DSC_0055So, are you sick of seeing me in navy blue yet? Yes, I’m wearing it again today, but at least this time I’m pairing it with a different color: olive green. I’m a big fan of the navy/olive combination, even if I don’t seem to wear it all that often.

DSC_0048This cardigan is a new-ish item in my closet, and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. The particular shade of green has a bit more yellow/brown undertones than I would prefer, but I think I can make it work. Hopefully it doesn’t remind you too much of baby poop (or is that just me?). Regardless, I was very glad to have this cardigan today as I sat through a dissertation defense (not mine, obviously) and a few meetings–the air conditioning was downright frigid. #summerinthesouth

DSC_1474It’s getting to be that time of the year when I struggle with the balance between staying cool in the heat with remaining somewhat professional. Although I could probably get away with wearing shorts on days when I don’t have meetings or participant visits, on this particular day, I had a meeting with the principal investigator and co-investigator of the research study I’m working on. Translation: shorts would not be a good idea.

DSC_1481So, I opted to go with a skirt. Honestly, this skirt is a little shorter than I would like, but the thought of a pencil skirt on a 89-degree day sounded pretty torturous. Clearly, the breezy, albeit slightly revealing skirt won.



Pearls + paisley = a winning combination.
