Library-themed outfit for a library-themed presentation

Another day, another opportunity to wear library-themed clothing! I wore this outfit on a day that I gave a library-themed presentation, so I had to represent. 😉

Also, a quick note that today is the last day of spring quarter and academic year for my college. But I will be working during summer quarter, so you will be seeing more casual work outfits throughout the summer.

I am wearing FOUR different library-themed items, but the outfit as a while doesn’t come off as gimmicky — at least not to me. And it gave me so much joy to know about all the library-themed details I added to this outfit (even if no one else noticed), including:

  • library due date stamp tee
  • book-print skirt
  • library card tote bag
  • “Library Lovers” pin

My denim jacket served as my outerwear, but I also wanted to show how the outfit looked without the jacket. You can see better how I incorporated grey tones throughout the outfit, with the softer grey in the tee, a darker grey in the patent leather skinny belt, and pewter in the flats.

Work casual | Orange scarf + denim peep-toes

I was able to get in one last photo op with cherry blossoms! And I do believe this is the first time this year that y’all get a peek at my toes via my peep-toe wedges. 😉

I broke up all the colorblocking in this outfit with this orange print scarf. And yes, my toenail polish matches my cardigan. Hi, I’m Jen, and I love to color-coordinate. 😉

My library card tote bag was a last-minute addition as I was gathering up my stuff in the morning. I like that it adds a pop of (unexpected) color… but is it too much? A different purse or tote would definitely change the vibe of this outfit. Your thoughts?

Pride tee + cherry blossom trees

Today, I wanted to be both colorful and comfortable, for a day of meetings with faculty and administrators. And I’ve joined a “Safe Zone II” training program this spring — additional training for how to be an LGBTQ ally — so I wanted to wear my heart on my tee, so to speak. ♥

And springtime here in the PNW means off-and-on rain, as well as off-and-on sunshine. Because OF COURSE the sun came out *just* as we were about to take photos, after it had been overcast ALL DAY.

It’s still chilly up here in the PNW, so leggings and tall boots do not look out of place (yet). And cherry blossom season is my favoritest part of springtime, so we took these photos out by a blossoming clump of trees after work. ♥♥♥

Y’all have seen this clutch before — it’s a little bag I carry with me throughout the day, as I’m always on the go in and around the library, as seen in my most recent “day in the life” post — and I brought it out for these pics because I thought it added an extra pop of fun and pattern into the outfit. And it’s what people see when I’m walking across campus, so it’s true to life. Students and colleagues alike frequently comment on this clutch and ask me where I got it! 😀 (It’s from Out of Print, one of my favorite clothing sites!)

Dusty rose jeans + cowboy boots

When it’s fall, I always want to bring out my “Ferdy the Fox” sweater. And it paired very nicely with my dusty rose skinny jeans {still available online!} and cowboy boots.

You can take the girl out of Texas, but you just can’t take Texas out of the girl, eh?… 😉 Gotta admit, these cowboy boots are soooooo comfortable, and they fit LIKE A GLOVE. You can read all about how I came by these cowboy boots here in this post, thanks to my friend Christina.

And yes, this tote bag that I won last spring (at the local fashion show I walked in!) is my favorite bag this fall season.

Remixing a striped dress with rain boots

A quick note that the poll is about to close for you to vote for your favorite outfit from last month — thanks in advance for voting!

Today’s outfit was inspired by two things:  (a) the rainy weather, and (b) wanting to remix this striped dress, which you’ve seen before here and here.

Bonus pattern-mixing provided by my Pride & Prejudice-print scarf (a recent birthday gift from my friend Stephanie). The scarf was a last-minute addition — it was chilly in the morning! — but I thought it paired nicely with my navy-and-berry striped dress. My navy boot socks also provided a bit more texture to the overall outfit.

I also wore my new put-a-bird-on-it resin earrings, which you also saw earlier this week! And the pink stripe on the back of my rain boots tied in with the berry color of my dress… yes, the details in this outfit made me smile inside all day. 😀
