What I wore for a local librarian conference | Glasses tee

Even though I’m officially done with work for the academic year, I still have a few more work outfits to showcase on the blog…

I wore this outfit for a one-day librarian regional conference, a more casual conference. (And the Pacific Northwest is more sartorially casual in general.) I’ve collected quite a number of librarian-themed tees — or at least, novelty theme tees that relate well to librarians, like this eyeglasses tee, which was a big hit at the conference! And OF COURSE my colorblock tote bag fit the color scheme.

And it was a bit rainy on the day, so I wore my red cotton jacket again. The red of the jacket really pops! Another day for a pop of red!

So nice I wore it twice | Red jeans + grey tee

I’ve worn this outfit TWICE:  the first time to host a librarians’ book club last month (before we started packing up the house) and the second time more recently to meet up with a librarian colleague for lunch (which is when we took these pics). This due date tee seemed just right for both occasions!😉

Pattern-mixing alert! I paired my striped canvas flats with my due date tee, and I added my Little Women tote bag for the lunch date. I figured a book-themed tote was the perfect finishing touch!

Tex | Conference casual

The reason behind this post title, “Tex,” is immediately apparent:

I wore this outfit for a day of traveling to a state library conference in Bend, Oregon, a day that ended with an association get-together at a local bar and restaurant. So OF COURSE I had to something library-themed. If you’re a longtime reader, then you’ll know I have more than one library-themed item of clothing; for today, that turned out to be my library due date-stamped tee.

So how did this backdrop come about? Before setting off for the conference, I was dropping off Sam, and I spied this shady spot marked “Tex.” Thank goodness we take most of our photos now with my camera phone, so we can take advantage of these unexpected opportunities! And it’s so perfect since I grew up in Texas! (I know you’re smiling now, Mom!😀 )

Casual cat tee + grey jeans

Last week was spring break, so I thought a casual outfit would be appropriate to highlight on the blog! I didn’t actually put this outfit together with the idea of taking pics, but as we were running errands, we decided to take the opportunity to snap some photos — since the sun was out, and that’s a rarity these days!😉

I like to wear my cat tee (from the 2012 Jason Wu for Target boutique collection) with red, because of the red bow around the cat graphic, and this time was no exception. This cotton jacket was the perfect layer for this sunshine-y day that still had a bit of chill in the air.

We took pics by Martin Luther King Jr. School in Northeast Portland, which began as the Highland School, erected in 1926. The school is now a Mandarin Immersion School, from kindergarten through 8th grade!

Mixing mint with grey + black

One quick note that the poll is still open to vote for your favorite outfit of mine from October!

My husband, Sam, sometimes likes to be involved with my daily outfit choices. He has NEVER wanted to actually choose an outfit for me — too much pressure, he says — but he quite likes it when I give him a range of options to choose from.

Like today, I knew I wanted to pair a t-shirt with my black pencil skirt. I presented Sam with three options (my bow blouse, my purple P&P tee, or my glasses-print tee), and he immediately chose my glasses-print tee. I then asked him what color skinny belt to choose (pink, mint, or grey), and he chose the mint option.

The end result, all put together:

And YES, another outfit with these awesome grey booties. Obviously I’m IN LOVE. I knew I wanted to try them out with my light grey tights for a different kind of look. The end result is a little edgy — at least, edgy for me. I also piled on silver bracelets, including the “Librarian” bangle that my mother-in-law gifted me for my birthday.

The pic below is an outtake of when I adjusted my bracelets for the closeup, seen above. I smiled at how artistically splayed my fingers looked in the outtake.😉

The backdrop is an interesting wall along a nearby neighborhood side street. I love the round shapes and concrete textures, so I thought it would make for a neutral yet also eye-catching backdrop for photos. The grey tones of the logs also tie in with my grey tights and ankle boots!:)
