Halogen petite ponte skirt, Nordstrom Rack, gift
embellished tank, Macy's
JJ Basics cardigan, passed down
I've been having fun getting dressed lately - maybe it's because I feel so much more relaxed with nothing to do but enjoy winter break. Evidence: I wore my houndstooth skirt for the first time to get dinner with sis and a cousin last week. Since it's the holidays, I added a sparkly tank, pearl accessories, and red cardigan - but knotted the tank at the hip so it looks laid-back vs. stuffy.
Random news: I've realized that telling people that I'm studying library sciences is a conversation closer. The average person just has no conception of what librarians really do (and no, I don't take classes in Advanced Shushing and Reshelving). At the most, I get a blank but pleasant look and an "Oh, that's nice." I need to think up a 10-second soundbite that makes my future profession accessible and interesting without sounding pedantic or snooty.
