I don’t think you all have seen me so dressed down since the Physics of Motherhood week I did during winter break last year.
In fact, this outfit looks suspiciously like this one, right down to the Doctor Who-themed graphic tee. We have come a long way, baby, for me to deliberately and willingly wear such a stripped down ensemble in public. And to work, even. I must be channeling my inner Debbie @ Fashion Fairy Dust who does understated casual in a glam and professional way. I hope my attempt does her justice.
Debbie notwithstanding, this look was consciously inspired by Caitlin’s T-shirt Remix challenge. Now, I don’t think I’ve made this tee look particularly amazing, per se, but then again, it’s a Doctor Who tee. Bonus points for it being a punny Doctor Who tee. ‘Nuff said, right?
If you must have some sort of style validation of amazing, however, how about giving me props for the super shiny silver loafers that elevate the outfit from bland to bling? And how’s about some brand name cachet by my sporting a Rodarte cardi? Finally, for the DIY set, whaddaya think of that skirt which was originally this but, in the magical hands of my in-house tailor, has found a new lease on life? (I suppose I could’ve left it a dress and just worn stuff over it, but skirts are more versatile, yeah?)
It’s T minus 3 days and counting. Can you blame me for transitional dressing?
(Oh, and also: long tee over short skirt!)
