Ruffle Me Up



Blouse: Ann Taylor

I picked up this purple tank with ruffle detail last year while I was living in DC and it quickly became a wardrobe staple – I love that I can dress it up with tailored pants and heels or dress it down with jeans. And it’s pure cotton so it’s really lightweight and fantastically comfortable in the hotter months.

Also, in totally unrelated news, I found out this weekend that an article I wrote called ‘Not Having God Before his Eyes’: Bestiality in Early Modern England" is being published!!!! I first got the idea for this project back in 2007 and decided to pursue it even though it has nothing at all to do with my dissertation or what I actually work on but because I wanted to see if, as a scholar, I was capable of independently researching something, developing a coherent argument, and writing it up in under 40 pages. I finished the article itself in 2009 and sent it to a couple of journals and after a year's worth of revisions and back and forth with one of them, my article has been accepted for publication. More excited I could not be!
