Springy


This is the last outfit from before the trip, when it suddenly got really warm and sunny in SF. This outfit felt springy while still giving me enough skin coverage for the chilly temps that tend to set in at dusk. Because my feet have a hard time with peep toe shoes, I added some little half socks to keep my toes from being chafed.

If you only look at the detail shot, this outfit looks pretty glam with all the sequins and sparkly jewelry. But notice how the addition of leggings and flats brings the outfit down a couple notches in terms of dressiness. If I swapped out the leggings for black nylons and the flats for pumps, I'd have a perfectly good outfit for going out.

Top: Forever 21
Cardigan: Anthropologie
Belt: Red Dress Shoppe
Skirt: Noa Noa
Leggings: Foot Traffic
Bracelet: Betsey Johnson
Shoes: Bobbi Blu

tulle and sequins should always be worn in the field of science!! i feel like engineers would be more creative if they wore interesting clothes..

I'm sorry, but it'd be an awesome outfit if it wasn't for the half-socks...

I'd done a search this morning for "Conference wear" and this skirt appeared in one of your outfits - how coincidental you posted an outfit with it this afternoon! If it wasn't for you telling me they were half socks, I would have assumed they were part of the shoes!
