After dancing the night away the previous day, I was feeling fairly exhausted going to the last two panels of the conference so I wanted to wear something bright and fun; unfortunately, most of my bright clothes were dirty and I ended up wear a fairly pale outfit.
I’ve worn this red pencil skirt from Pseudio many times in the last couple years (such as dancing downtown last night). I bought it in an effort to class up my style — I had been wearing a red, jersey mini-skirt from H&M during my MA. When I started my PhD and started TA’ing more I wanted a similar red skirt in a more professional length, so I pick up this red pencil skirt. It has held up really well!
When I was planning my outfits for Congress in 2013 my mom offered to buy me a “fancy” tank top to pair with my patterned pants (which I’m sure I’ll wear sometime very soon in my capsule) since the weather was expected to be very hot in Victoria. I have this Reitmans tank top in both black and cream. Although it has ruffles which I don’t normally do because hello boobs!, I really love its fit and weight (it is not quite sheer so it is professional). It hasn’t held up as well as my Pseudio skirt and I can only wear it under blazers or cardigans because of the discolouration, so I topped it off with my cream Vero Moda blazer.
I bought this scarf from Aslidesign on Etsy when I first rescued my pug Momo (there are so many more accessories/ items with pug print in comparison with my other pup Mal’s breed: papillon). I had not had a chance to try it out yet — but it is a lovely light-weight, infinity scarf. I miss my boys so much!
I paired this outfit with my daisy studs and some Bite creme lipstick — super simple! The outfit worked well for a day of leisurely strolling about the National Art Gallery — the Colville exhibit was fantastic and my pug scarf went well, thematically, with Colville’s love of animals, especially dogs!
Has anyone else tried prints with domestic animals? Do you feel like it comes off as too precious? Too much like a crazy, dog lady?
