This outfit is my ode to Fall and the gorgeously unique color palette that it inspires. As we move ever closer to winter (my second favorite season) I am reveling in these last few glorious weeks of autumn.

sweater: H&M / scarf: TJ Maxx / skirt: Target / boots: Thom Browne / necklace: the Met / t-shirt: Gap / purse: Target / watch: La Mer

It's Tuesday today and that means I am two days away from that big presentation (a 50 minute lecture/talk about my dissertation followed by 40 minutes of questions from a room full of people that I fully expect to be highly insightful and perhaps critical of my work). I don't really get nervous about stuff like this - I mean I regularly present my work at conferences and deal with speaking in front of classrooms full of students every week - but I am getting pretty scared about this. I'm also thinking a lot, a lot, about what I'm going to wear.

I am of the theory that you cannot go wrong with camel. Love that sweater.

3. Boots
4. Polka dot tights

Public speaking is one of my greatest fears so presenting my dissertation would terrify me! You look beautiful-I love the leopard print and I think I have the same polka dotted hosiery!

Marie a la Mode said...

The Queen of leopard print strikes again! ; ) I love all your leopard printed clothes and LOVE your scarf and cardigan. You will do fine with your presentation! Breathe and wear something comfortable but professional. Break a leg!

This is the perfect Fall outfit. The pattern tights and the beautiful scarf are the greatest special touches. You look beautiful.

Bonnie said...

I have a skirt exactly like this, but the hem fell out while I was at work, and I had to tape it back up for the rest of the day. Damn.

You're presenting because you're the expert and you're more insightful than them. And whatever you wear, you're going to look fab.

I'm a huge fan of this outfit, and you know me, smitten with the accessories. Leopard paired with polka dot tights? Sign me up!

Unknown said...

Aww, I'm sure you will do well with your presentation. I'm hoping for the absolute best for you.

I love this look, I wish I could find polka dot tights in my size, wah. You look warm and stylish, I love the use of colors.

Good luck!
