“Teacher, you look so sophisticated today,” was one (slightly backhanded) compliment this outfit inspired.
I scored this gorgeous cashmere sweater during a J. Crew sale bonanza. I love how the oxblood on the back cheats into the front: SUPER slimming. And these are the sister pants to these black ones. The outfit seemed a little basic, so I threw on some ridiculous chandelier earrings to jazz it up (you can’t see them through my hair, so I included a closeup). These earrings work because they have a bit of a tarnish to them, making them gel with the vintage professor vibe the clothes give off. And the dark silver kind of “matches” the grey of the pants, so although they’re still a quirky pairing, they aren’t completely random.
The elbow patches are a little high because this is an XXS. You heard me! That was the only size they had left, and it SHOCKINGLY fit everywhere else.
