I wore a:
Can you tell I work at Gap? Most days I don't feel too Gapped out but this outfit would plead otherwise. The belt was my favorite part of the outfit- it's 2 skinny belts bound together. The skirt actually came with a sash made of the same material but it made the skirt look even more poofy, which wasn't something I wanted. Even though the skirt is from Gap's summer line, it looks more like an autumn item. I'm excited to wear it with tights, boots and cardigans in the fall.
All I did today was go to class and run a few errands. Being in grad school makes me want to dress a little more professionally than I have been, so this outfit was perfect. It still kept me cool in the ninety-degree weather but also didn't make me feel underdressed. I'm one of the youngest people in my program, so looking more "mature" is a goal. Not old, mind you, just a little less young.
I have a hard time wearing some pale, neutral colors on top but because the skirt had a small pattern and the shoes were bright, it made up for the oatmeal color. I love these shoes and despite their strange color, they go with almost everything.
I should go ahead and apologize for the terrible picture. Moving to a new town all by yourself makes a self-timer your new bff.
