Today's outfit is inspired by Anne, Ann Underfunded Humanity, and KBean, because they rock the docs in a B.A. way. I don't have Dr. Martens, but instead a pair of M.I.A. combat boots that I wore all around New Orleans last spring during a big conference (not during the presentations, but during all the running around town we did before/after the serious stuff). Combat boots and skirts/dresses/shorts over tights is one of my favorite looks. Tough and feminine. Like salty and sweet.
This thrifted Land's End jersey shirt dress should get a lot of wear, but I found it's shape a little awkward to navigate. I hope to get some wear out of it (maybe as a layering piece) a couple time during this upcoming month.
Please excuse my eye puffiness. My colleagues and I had a very salty "Last day of teaching" meal last night. This is why I don't eat out too much. Today, I need to work for a few hours on my PTWE (project that won't end), jog, then run into school by 3:30 for our last meeting of the semester. Oh, and pick up 27 lbs of winter share vegetables at our CSA. I can taste those Brussels sprouts already.
