Winter Warmth

Chilly weather means the return of my thrifted wool skirt originally from J Crew. This red number is the perfect fall piece and works great in the office. And a recent Zara purchase (I’m nuts for the little faux leather shoulder bits) is the ideal top to pair with it.

In unrelated news, I was recently informed that an article I submitted for publication consideration has been accepted! The article is based on a chapter of my dissertation and I've been working on it since last December so I am pretty pleased that it will be published.

Preparations for my January teaching gig are also in full swing - I've written upwards of 7 lectures so far (33 need to be written in total but I feel really good about having made a start of it so early).

skirt: thrifted, Savers (originally from J Crew) / top: Zara / necklace: F21 / shoes: Target / tights: We Love Colors
