It was actually warm enough last week to go without tights! That made me overly happy. I love dresses and skirts and will wear them over pants and shorts any day. I wore this to work one day last week–it’s funny, most people in my lab wear jeans and t-shirts and sneakers, and whenever I walk in my friend Linda says how “elegant” I look! It’s nice to hear. Although I don’t think this body-hugging high waisted skirt is exactly elegant, but I’ll take it. I got it last year on sale at the american apparel outlet, and while I hate buying things from there because they usually scream “I’m from american apparel and I look like a hipster,” I couldn’t resist this light purple denim pencil skirt. Paired with a simple black sweater and flats, and this awesome wooden beaded necklace I found in my mom’s jewelry drawer a few months ago, it made for a great sunny day outfit.
