Poorly timed OOTD

My outfit photo timing has been off lately. I wind up either missing (the ever decreasing) daylight hours entirely or being met with uncooperative rainy weather. I've been such a scatterbrain lately and also misplaced my camera for a week. During this time I took pics but with a timer app on my iPhone. This means that already cruddy indoor pics turned out even blurrier! But I am not sure that I will repeat this outfit during this semester so I may as well document it using what I have.

Tired OOTD

I look so tired in this picture. My on campus days have been so harried lately that it's a miracle I ever remember to take a photo. And to indulge a retake or two is just not realistic. Besides, this is an accurate representation of how I looked because I was so tired. Between conference prep, my usual work responsibilities, Covey, parenting, and life I am so tired. But I still enjoy sharing my diary of outfits so you get to see this photo of my tired face and well-worn (aka tired, recycled, remixed, old but loved, etc.) dress.

To my fellow academics: Isn't October supposed to be easier than September?? I'm getting crushed for some reason.

One Burberry dress, (barely) two ways OOTD

I wore this Burberry Brit dress to an outdoor wedding (below) and then the following week I wore it to campus (above). It felt a little fancy to wear on a regular teaching day but I was running late and needed to just pick something and go.  This worked.

I didn't change much about how I wore it on either occasion, save for the shoes and the necklace. I suppose I could stand to get more creative and maybe I will with time. This dress is still new and novel so when I reach for it, it alone feels like "enough."

My broad love for dresses stems from their ease of use. Put on a dress and boom, you have an outfit. Maybe that outfit won't move mountains but I'm not trying to move mountains with my outfits. I just want to be able to get my work done and feel confident doing so.
