It took a while for me to convince myself that red-orange and red-violet really do “go” together, but this morning I put all my faith in the color wheel
and piled on an assortment of colors on my top half. Rather than tying the scarf around my neck or waist, I folded and pinned it to the edge of my cardigan to function as a bright, patterned border. To keep things looking a little more “office casual,” I added brown pointy toe pumps, always a sure bet for dressing up an otherwise laid back outfit.
Frankly, I find it difficult to keep a straight face around split complements
. They’re just so darn playful.
My husband and I are hitting the road tonight for a quick visit to our old college town. Since all my department professors are out of town for an annual conference, we’re taking advantage of a free Friday, a rare and beautiful thing. My next installment for academichic will be from the road!
