pink, unabated

 tank, Gap
skirt, Target
earrings, gift

      Something about having shorter hair makes me reach for my bolder earrings. I had originally planned to wear a necklace instead, but at the last minute decided on statement earrings.  

        I bought this tank for $2.08 in July - I had a $10 rewards that was about to expire. The armholes are a little low and big, so I added a sports bra in lieu of a camisole. I can't wait for it to cool down at work ...  some of my students' families generously donated fans, but even with all the fans going full blast, on a hot day it just means we have a lot of warm steamy air circulating. It can be challenging to put together a heat-ready but professional outfit! I did give in last Wednesday and wear Bermuda shorts with a tee, with a necklace thrown on to make it look a little fancier.
     What are your plans for the weekend? I have the usual lesson planning to do and piles of student papers to look through. However, I am looking forward to a few naps, a glass of wine or two, and some quality time with a novel. I  also hope to hunt down the September Vogue issue!


  1. that is a very nice outfit! pink looks good on you! also, i love those earrings! very nice!

  2. Your hair looks really nice this length. And the outfit is cute. The earrings are special. I'm looking forward to relaxing this weekend.

  3. Thanks, Ally! I like this length so much, I am planning to get it cut again in October, which is unprecedented.

  4. Thanks, Mark. Polka dots and pink are a new favorite combo.

  5. Pink and polka dots is always a favourite combination of mine

  6. I totally use the sports bra trick to layer under tops and dresses! Really works well in warm climates -- although now I use the trick all through the year! :)

  7. Jen - the sports bra idea was such a revelation - no more sticky, sweaty camisoles! We have been getting record-breaking heat here, so my sports bras have been indispensable.

  8. Thanks, Tia! I've realized that I like polka dots with just about everything. :)
