ootd no. 5

I cuff all my pants. These are supposedly “ankle length” trousers, but alas, my 5’2″ frame requires the constant cuffing of all things. I’ve just accepted it and try to make it work for me, style-wise. This oversized chambray top is my new favorite thing for the transition into a Texas fall (ignore the post-work wrinkles). The cooler weather is making me miss my breezy bob and bangs though.

As fall teases its way through Texas, I am still pairing my long-sleeved tees with sandals. Stripes + joggers are a laidback combination that I tend toward around midweek — it might too casual for some workplaces, but not mine (luckily).

I am a sucker for an art deco or art nouveau print. It’s, admittedly, a slightly strange predilection and one not necessary equipped for maintaining the modern-day wardrobe. But, naturally, I snagged this fabulously patterned blouse as soon as I saw it on sale. And it happened to match my favorite trousers. Although, to be honest, the outfit itself turned out to be a little too match-matchy for me.

I have a comfort zone when it comes to dressing myself for work, and this outfit is solidly in it. Looking at it now, I do wish I accessorized a bit more — I suspect this dress would look cuter when accentuated with a long necklace. I usually accessorize with colored tights or, when it’s cooler, scarves. Jewelry tends to be an afterthought, or a not-thought.

Well, I managed a moderately impressive 8-week hiatus before I regretted my decision to stop posting outfits online. (Related: I have come to terms with the fact that I might have a problem.) Don’t expect much writing here, just pictures of my everyday outfits, if you’re into that.

These jeans were a recent Loft purchase after my students teased me about having “Friday jeans.” And they’re right, I have one pair of jeans. My bag was an educator subscription gift from The New Yorker and I love it more than any other purse I’ve ever had.
