OOTD: Hello There, Summer

May 12, 2014

Woo! The spring semester has finally ended, and although it had some amazing moments and inspiring work from my students, I’m happy to be on the other side of it. Last year, I went straight from spring to teaching over the summer to 2 weeks later starting at a new school, and as a new teacher, I’m pretty excited for some time to reflect and revise my classes before I get back in there in July.

As my last act of the semester, I went in to box up my office in preparation of moving to a different room. I needed something casual, but since I was able to sleep in past 5am I was energetic enough to actually dry my hair and intentionally pick what I wore (you don’t even wanna know the state of my hair this past month). I’ve been saving up to move into my own place, so lately my clothing purchases have been restricted to more frugal places, so this outfit (besides the shoes) is all Old Navy.


I’ve been shopping a lot from Old Navy’s regular women’s Tall section. This works well for me with their soft fabric tops and soft fabric dresses, but this vest is on the small side (though that didn’t stop me from wearing it). I’m kinda in love with the style and length. I can see myself wearing it with maxis and dark denim skinny jeans. Unfortunately, the plus size section does not have this in green, but they do have it in khaki.


For some reason my hair looks half blonde and half brunette, but I promise you that it’s evenly blonde. I’ve been wanting to get back to a lighter color, and I’m kind of in an in-between state, but I’m enjoying it.

By the way, I know I do not blog as often as I used to, but I do update instagram a little more regularly–you can follow me here (and comment on instagram so I can see and follow you back!)

    Such a cute outfit! I like your hair light. It is a change and sometimes we need a change. Are you planning another trip to New York and the fashion industry? I really enjoy hearing about all your finds and folks you meet. Let us know more about your search for your own place. Now you will be fashioning something else besides your body.

      No trip to NYC this year, unfortunately! But I am moving to my new place in June so there will still be plenty of excitement 🙂

    Your eyebrows are so on point. I love them. And I love this outfit! I might have to pick up one of these vests for myself.

    Looking fab as always, and the colours go really well, I’d put some gladiator flats with this outfit xx
