Rubik's Cube

Skirt, Modern Amusement. Sweater, Tommy Hilfiger. Blouse, Banana Republic. Tights, Hue. Flats, Browns.


Last year around the holidays, my sister and I were strolling through the food court of a mall when an Asian-Canadian guy approached us, looked at me and said: "You're a teacher, aren't you?" My sister instinctively rolled her eyes, but I was slow on the uptake and made the mistake of asking why. "I could just tell by the way you're dressed." You can imagine how the rest of the conversation went and no, I did not give him my number. What was I wearing, you ask? A merino wool L.B.D. with tights, a cardigan, and ballet flats. If that screams teacher, what does this skirt say about me? Rubik's Cube aficionado? Too obvious. That I'm a  colorimetry major? Not a very clever one, that's for sure. Aggressive scourer of the clearance rack at Holt Renfrew in January? You have puzzled me out, Food Court Guy.

I adore the skirt, it's something I would love to own myself. Your photos are gorgeous and I really enjoy your use of color and overall style- the black tights and cardigan with pops of bright colors are something I totally relate to in my own outfits.

Oh my goodness, my first day of teaching I had someone say almost the exact same thing to me, and I had no idea how to take that! For what it's worth, I looked at you in this outfit and thought, Stained-Glass-Window-Motifer. ;)

Btw I just found you through the 30-for-30 and just love your style/blog! So great to meet you :)
