Chateau History Nerd

I’m buried in conference paper writing over here at chateau history nerd but I did take a short break to hang out in the air conditioned basement of one of the campus libraries…and it actually got really cold down there, hence the leggings and cardigan. I'm pretty sure I finished writing my dissertation yesterday though...obviously there will be editing and revisions but I completed the last sentence of the conclusion and printed it and now have a 335 page document to begin editing.







dress: Target / necklace: F21 / cardigan: Gap / leggings: American Apparel / shoes: thrifted

Check out my feature on www.become.com, a great site that synthesizes online shopping and fashion info (among other things) and has named me one of the Best of the Web.

Oh my gosh congrats! It's so cool to have been here for some of the time during the writing process and to see all the work you've put in! Love the outfit, perfect for a chilly basement and exactly what I wish I was wearing in this ice-cold starbucks!

Haha, that is a lot of layers for summer. I've been dealing with the a/c - i can't bring myself to break out a cardigan, even one of my summer cardis (which is silly, since that is why they exist, but no. not doing it.)

Anyway, keep warm/stay cool!
Love those aviators!

Chic on the Cheap

You look great! Adore the cardigan and that necklace is fantastic .... on you!! thinking about your statement necklaces I went into Chico's yesterday and tried one on, thinking I could pull it off but I can't, maybe its my shape or something but they don't look nearly as nice as they do on your neck :)
Love the outfit.
