An Outfit For Writing


I wore this last week to hang out in the library of my alma mater, the University of Alberta, and work on getting a draft of my book done. And, while I am finding transitioning my dissertation into a monograph to be a somewhat painful process, I am glad that I have had the ability to pour myself into it for 8-10 hours a day, almost 6 days a week for the past two months. Because I am now at the stage of drafting a proposal for publishers and am getting ready to start sending it out for consideration!

Anyways, I think this an appropriately scholarly look for an afternoon of writing, no?


jeans: Zara / blouse: Everly via ModCloth / loafers: Cooperative via Urban Outfitters / blazer: F21 / watch: Kenneth Cole
