Floral Week: Brown & Coral Sheer Top

Shirt: LOFT, thrifted

Shoes: Kohls? (I've had them since high school...)


This school year, I have been working as a graduate assistant (GA) in my department doing research with one of the faculty members.  Most of the other GAs that work in the office wear jeans and tees every day to work, but I'm one of those people that is much more productive when I am put together and a bit more dressed up.  When I walked into the office wearing this outfit, one of my fellow GAs said to me, "Dang, Brynn, you always look so cute and nice when you come to work.  I feel so sloppy standing next to you in my jeans and sweatshirt!"  I laughed, thanked her, and explained that I do much better work when I'm dressed a bit nicer...but not to be fooled, because as soon as I get home, I'm in leggings and a sweatshirt.  I know I'm not the only one out there like this!

I can't decide if I really like today's outfit, or if I'm completely ambivalent about it.  I feel like theoretically, it works - the colors go together, I've got slim pants on with a blousier top, it's not overly accessorized...but somehow, it still kind of feels off.  Maybe it's because it feels kind of "mature" for me?  I don't know.
