On a summer work day that included multiple meetings, I wore a basic go-to outfit formula that I utilize time and again when I happen to be working in summer quarter: a nicer tee with wide-legged trousers and strappy sandals. The trousers give it the necessary work-appropriate edge, while the tee is casual and comfy, and the sandals allow for air flow in the heat.
Above and below are closeups of my accessories, including my pewter wedge sandals (which have a rubber sole, so they’re particularly useful while walking across campus) and my earrings below. I debated amongst several earring choices, but I went with these “tiki-style” bead earrings that my paternal grandmother made decades ago, to add a bit of fun and whimsy to my ensemble. (Note: We took photos of this outfit before I got my new purse that replaced this tote bag.)
And of course, my “NEVER FORGET” library card catalog tee adds its own whimsy! It also reinforces my role as librarian in whatever campus meeting I’m involved in, and helps get across my sense of humor to anyone who might not know me yet. 😉 (Yes, I really do think all about all these details when I get dressed for the day.)
