I Hate Tuesdays

This was sort of a sloppy, running errands kind of outfit from a week or so ago before it started to get ungodly muggy on the East Coast. As much as I really, really want the weather to cool off, I will miss this much greenery on campus.



shorts: H&M / vest: H&M / top: Target / shoes: Gap

Today is, of course, Tuesday (aka, the day I have to be on campus for 11 hours running from place to place) and so my mind is wandering to happier things (although I'd be lying is I said I wasn't looking forward to leading my students in an hour long discussion of the rhetoric/reality of Spartan hegemony in the ancient Greek world). After seeing all the sparkly fashions at the recent Emmys, I am obsessed anew with Elie Tahari. Here’s the Spring 2012 collection …

You consider this outift 'sloppy'? Girl, you should see what I wear to the store.

I think this is pretty fab!

Isn't that just weird? I love the cold and can't wait until fall or winter, but I love greenery and trees and flowers. But why can't I have BOTH? PISH.

You are the queen (or empress, take your pick) of the shorts and tights combo. You make it look like it's so effortless!

You can decide that today sucks and give up on it. That's what I've already done.

Tuesdays, yeah, I'm not too fond of them myself. I can imagine with such a hectic day why they would not be your favorite, best of luck this particular Tuesday.

Love your outfit, I wish I could rock the short and tights combination but I'm too chubby right now. Pretty building you are posing in front of as well.

(I'm typing over my cat since he is laying right by the keyboard so I apologize for any errors haha)

Love the collection especially the sparkly gold and the blues, very gorgeous.

Alexa said...

Oooh all of that gold would make me smile as well. Hope that it's not too hectic today!

Yea I think it's ok to have products from animals who are being treated well but it's often hard to tell. I stopped the veganism (bc of my bday, I went on a trip and wanted to have 'fun' but instead I got a lot of stomach pain! I didn't have meat but I did have dairy, eggs and fish. The dairy was the heaviest to handle) The bf gave me a vegan cookbook and when I got home I wanted to try out recipes so bad that I've kinda unconsciously been eating vegan for the past couple of days! Strictly veganism forever is so hard so I'm trying to find a good balance now! Anyway. Too bad you don't have access to a good farmers market :( Things like that and nature shops help a lot. Only it's so frigging expensive.

I love the second dress and your outfit looks so relaxed but not sloppy at all!

that black dress with the front zipper is SO sleek, and that floaty grey one is gorgeous.

Elle Sees said...

I need some flowy pieces today instead of hot weather.

Kristin said...

Tuesdays are no better than Mondays IMO and that gold skirt is delish!

Chelsea Lane said...

OMG ... metallic skirts are to die for! That white shirt (one picture before last) is insane.
Your outfit looks so cool, nothing sloppy about it, its actually very nice.
PS: Hair looks great, I was about to cut mine today but I am not that brave ....yet.

Gold dresses are so pretty. They remind me of the Academy Awards.

Your University campus is beautiful although your Tuesday sounds hectic (I hope Wednesdays are a bit of a breather!) I love this outfit- simple and chic!

this free bird said...

Wow. It is incredibly green there.

Um, can we discus the denim look with the flowy vest/jacket and gold sequiny belt?? As in can we discuss HTH I'm going to get it into my closet?? DREAM!
