Library card catalog tee + tote for casual work combo

I always find it an interesting challenge to dress for campus professional development days. I’m not teaching, so I feel I can go more casual, but I’m also around colleagues, so I don’t want to go too casual.

So all that thinking led to the outfit below. It does veer more toward the casual end of the spectrum (the tee + tote bag + slip-on sneakers), but the two items that still keep it in the professional realm for me are the ankle pants (instead of jeans) and the cardigan. And I kept it fun with my bright pink lipstick 😉

I also feel motivated to wear library-themed clothing or accessories on campus professional development days, so I can help visually represent the library to other colleagues around the campus. (Not that I ever really need an excuse, hah! 😉 )

Luckily, I have accumulated several library-themed options in my closet, but the ones I chose for this outfit were my “NEVER FORGET” card catalog tee and my library card tote bag.

I’ve been wanting to take pics in front of this wall for awhile — the colors are so fun with the brightly colored bubbles and the fish-scale type siding. The colors in my outfit and in my shoes include many of the colors of the wall, which made me happy. ♥
