Rainbow Beams

The sun has clearly changed its angle lately; here it was so bright that it created little rainbow beams right across my photos. Lovely for sitting in the window seat and enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, lousy for taking pictures. I hope this doesn't mean I'm going to have to find a new photo spot for the winter months, but it may come to that if it stays sunny.

This outfit was all about comfort; no tights or thin elastic waistbands squeezing my middle, no tugging or readjustment to be done during the day, and no pinching or rubbing on my feet. Since the solid black top and solid teal skirt isn't the most exciting combination, I brought in some additional pattern and color with the scarf and socks.

The socks also helped to tie the shoes in with the rest of the outfit, since they contain both beige and black. The shoes are mostly brown, so I was afraid that they might not make sense with the black top and belt if I didn't have something to help with the transition. The other thing I've thought of doing with these shoes is changing the laces out for black ones so that I can wear them with pretty much anything.

Scarf: Promod
Shirt: H&M
Belt: Red Dress Shoppe
Bracelet: Amrita Singh, via Gilt
Skirt: LA Made
Socks: Sock Dreams
Shoes: Fly London

I have to tell you that I stumbled upon your blog because there was a raging feminist academic debate about fashion in higher ed and through a series of interesting debates and links it brought me to you. (Your site was used as an example of how someone can be smart AND stylish)
Anyway, I've been reading with amazement for a few months now and I just thought I should let you know how much I just adore your blog.
You make fashion something worth considering. Thank you for your fantastic outfits, the time you take to photograph, post and write about them.
I also think those harnesses and leather accessories are amazing and I'm hoping someone near&dear to me gets all my xmas hints.

Giulia: That's so funny -- I guess I've never imagined myself as someone who'd be held up as a feminist example. But then again, I don't really worry too much (or at all) about trying to justify my love of fashion in the technical/academic environment I work in. I just do my thing, and I figure people will realize through working with me that there's plenty of substance behind the funky clothes. Honestly I think a lot of people just worry too much about their image.

Anyway, thank you so much for your comment, and I'm glad you're finding the discussions here useful!
