Fall Fashion Week: Getting Oriented

(Head on over to Emery's blog to join in!)

I know this is Fall Fashion Week, but the past few days have been warm, muggy, and quite summer-like. And we in the PNW haven't been complaining as our summer was little lackluster.

Never fear though, the temperature is supposed to be cool and accompanied by rain.  That's what fall means here.

Saturday was half full of orientation for school.  We were having our cohort picture taken, so I wanted to look nice, but I also biked to campus to avoid football game traffic, so it had to be bike appropriate.  I should add that I biked longer today than I have in the past decade combined.

And thanks to the summer weather, I was a sweaty mess.  I actually walked my bike up one hill on the way there to keep from being a complete disaster.

And with that long and convoluted intro, here's the actual outfit.  (More to come on grad school later, when I have caught my breath and gotten through the second day of orientation.)

Oh, and to plantmyappletree, who commented about my hair...thanks!  I claim the curl as my own (and love it!), but the color is sadly not natural. :)


Outfit Details:
top: Old Navy, belt: unknown
skirt and shoes: Gap, watch: Fossil, 
earrings: from Costa Rica (not really pictured)

Isn't the lighting in our apartment lovely?!

  11. I love and hate biking. I love that it's exercise, and good for the environment, but hate that you get sweaty and messy while doing it! Though I've never worn something quite as adorable as you... I'm usually just dressed in sweats. You look great!
