You know what's rather hard for me to do? Force myself to put together an ensemble involving a color other than black, grey, or navy at 7 am. And 7 am was, unfortunately, the hour at which I had to get dressed for an early-ass meeting with another faculty candidate.
Confession: I was flickr-ing (gaaaaawd, I should really update my Flickr page!) through Wardrobe Remix and ran across a fabulous citrus yellow & grey outfit, which I stored in my head as a Great Idea. And when I found this mustard yellow sweater for cheap, I had to grab it and immediately put it on with my grey skirt. Thanks for the inspiration, Amber in Norfolk.
(lighting not so great. argh.)
Mustard yellow deep-V sweater (from Forever 21: so cheap in many ways) over old black tank, baby blue Matt & Nat Jorja Fox bag with all my notebooks and such, black lizard MJ cuff watch, asphalt high-waisted American Apparel pencil skirt, black tights, black flat Born boots.
