Have a great weekend, everyone!
Dress: Old Navy
Button-down: BR outlet
On the other hand, I had to trade these shoes for flipflops just to walk to and from my car, so these shoes are definitely not coming overseas where I will be taking public transportation everywhere. I just don't think I can give them up. They make me so happy!
Tank top: TJMaxx

I think they might need to be a hair shorter. What do you all think?

Now I need you to tell me, honestly, does the blue on blue work for you? Would you wear a bright color with its neutral equivalent?
Shirt: Banana Republic, thrifted

Purple tank top: Costco
Skirt: street vendor in Bangkok
Sandals: Nine West outlet

I usually go conservative on the first day (in my clothes, anyway...)
Party in the back.
I wanted the silhouette of a skinny belt, but I'm still not brave enough to mix brown and black, so I ended up with my black belt lower on my hips. Time to go hunting for a skinny black belt!
Capris: GAP, shortened by me

Eyelet + blue and white stripes + silver = very summery.
These sandals are pretty but they keep giving me blisters, even after several wears. Sad.
Only a few more days with this group of students, then back to my usual ESL group. I enjoyed these students but I dislike teaching test prep, so I'm looking forward to the switch.
Sandals: Chinese Laundry via TJMaxx (yes I see the theme here)
Bracelet: street vendor in Hong Kong

As a sample, here's last Friday's teaching outfit:
Come on, pressure fronts! Do your thing!

I was glad to find this button-down in the back of my closet. It was perfect for a blessedly cool, windy day of teaching.
Shirt: The Limited via TJMaxx Tank: ancient
Skirt: Banana Republic

Wearing shorts is always a bit iffy for me, as they often make me feel self-conscious. But taking inspiration from academichic and What Would A Nerd Wear, I added an embellished white top and a belt.
Top: Calvin Klein Jeans via Costco

So here's to you, floral skirt! Thanks for all the good times.

Even better, it's sleeveless AND teaching-appropriate! This humidity is making me nuts. I am sweating all over the place. It is gross. 'Nuff said.
Top: Sears, ancient

I inherited this awesome top from my sister. It is super soft and a pretty teal, and the loose, flowy cut is perfect on hot days. Plus it has sexy cut-out shoulders. Thanks Kiddo!
I feel like I'm in a rut. I think it's partially the heat, which restricts layering, and partially that most of my clothes, including all of my skirts, are neutral colors. All of my color is in my tops, scarves, and shoes. Bah. I don't want to spend any more money on clothes - I want to get creative with the stuff I own. Ok, that's the project for next week.

A light breezy outfit for a sunny day. I love my eyelet skirt in the summertime.

For me, denim skirt + bright cotton top + neutral sweater + neutral shoes is a go-to when I'm rushed or sleepy. It's nothing especially creative but at least I felt pretty and presentable enough for teaching and meetings.
I think the kitty approves.
