This is what I wore to a recently held welcome back reception that my department was hosting for returning faculty and students. I love the whole shorts and boots look and the coral blazer just adds a great visual twist.

boots: Thom Browne / shorts: H&M / tank: Target / blazer: F21 / ring: House of Harlow

Also, Rodarte anyone? This collection reminded me of Van Gogh … and that’s never a bad thing in my book.

Shut the front door! I love this outfit, the blazer is probably the best thing that I've ever seen. I'm a sucker for a colored blazer.

I love the coral jacket. It just adds the perfect amount of color.

Do you think it's okay to eat meat (products such as milk) from animals that are being treated well? I'd love to know your opinion!
