Summer safari OOTD

Anthro top
Lauren Moffatt skirt (via Gabriel Brothers)
J. Crew cardigan
Chloé flats

I look so dour in these photos. I don't know why. I didn't have a bad day or anything. It has dawned on me that the summer months are passing swiftly. But this doesn't upset me beyond the usual, "omg there was so much more I needed to get done" panic that seems to be a constant in the life of an academic. Though we are approaching the final weeks of summer, I comfort myself with the fact that my favorite season is around the corner! I noticed that I look sort of racoonish in these dour pics, which is a good lesson to either remove my sunglasses if I'm going to be outside or make more of an effort with make up. Anyway, I took a photo of my bracelets.


I'm not throwing a proper arm party but the proliferation of bloggers sporting arm parties has influenced me just enough. I wore this outfit to the Strip District and to get some lunch. I know it seems crazy in this weather to have a cardigan (no matter how short-sleeved) but I promise that too many restaurants keep things just frigid enough to need one.

I love the mix of prints!  I hear you on cardi's I keep getting cold anytime we go somewhere to eat or the movies!

 Regardless of how you look, the more important thing is how you feel. Having said that, I love that skirt! It's so cute and the color is great. Also, where did you get those fun bracelets!!

One more thing, I am fairly new to this blog, but I'm really enjoying it! Also, I just learned that you are from Steel City. I actually went to school in Pittsburgh...many members of the Strip District. Any favorite spots there???

It's so true that academics rarely have a dull moment.  I just turned in grades on Sunday morning and then will have a few anxiety free days before it is time to start building autumn classes on a new version of our Courseware.

Arm party!!  I love that cardigan- hoped to catch it on the last sale but they never restocked in my size...
Also loving the print of that top with the soft pattern on the skirt!

Oh, I love the bracelets! I've not jumped fully on board the bracelet bandwagon yet - they kinda get in the way when picking up and carrying small children. =P But the day will come that I'm not picking up and carrying small children. And then... ^_-

I love that top (how did I miss it?!) and combined, the outfit is a fantastic look. And...arm party!  I love it, and will use it (with props to you, of course).

Cheers,
