what I wore :: week in review
This week I did a test-drive of outfit posts on Instagram and people seemed into it. So here are the outfits I work this week.
Monday: taught in the morning and worked in the afternoon, so I went for something comfy and classic. I work these heels when I taught, but I usually leave them at school so I didn’t wear them in these shots.
Dress: Jason Wu for Target
Rings: Modcloth, World Market
Bag: made by me!
Shoes: Old Navy
Tuesday: my day off of the week, so I went comfy. Didn’t bother to iron out any wrinkles, because hey! Day off!
Top: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Ring: Forever 21
Wednesday: another teaching day, so I went with a go-to skirt and blouse. We over air-condition here in Texas, so I had a cardigan ready.
Top: Old Navy
Cardigan: Forever 21
Rings: Modcloth, Forever 21
Thursday: I gave a guest lecture in a film music class, so I just wanted a fun outfit. So! Polka dots and colored tights! I wore black heels, not these fun ones, but the black heels live in my “emergency heel drawer” in my office.
Dress: Forever 21
Tights: We Love Colors
Friday: another teaching day, and I felt like wearing my hair up, so I did a bit of a librarian look. The shoes really make this outfit (but let’s face it, those shoes make every outfit).
Hair: The Beauty Department’s “fun bun”
Hey look, proof that I can wear nice things. I can dress myself up but can I take myself anywhere? (Nope.)
Lesson one: have an emergency heel drawer, and lots of comfy flats in different colors that work with different outfits. Makes commuting to/from the office much more comfortable!
Lesson two: flat irons make GREAT irons for collars and ties. (Though by the end of the day the ties in Friday’s top crept back.)
Maybe someday I’ll have a nice camera and can take nice outfit shots. For now, iPhone it is.
