Late summer layers


It may officially be fall as of two days ago, but the weather here has been decidedly August-like. I'm over it. By the end of September, I expect temps in the 70s to low 80s. Definitely not 90s. Nooo thank you. I keep telling myself not to complain too much because once snow comes around, I'll be dreaming about the nice weather! But seriously, I'm ready to break out my ankle boots. I actually wore my black ankle boots on Sunday, and when I pulled them out of the closet, they were covered in dust. I had to dust my boots, guys.

Anyway, I've been waiting for the perfect day to wear this outfit, but the days have either been too hot or nice but rainy. (I have a bad habit of waiting for the ideal day to wear certain outfits. Most of the time those days never come, and why not wear an amazing outfit when you want to feel amazing?!) I gave in even though the temp flirted with 90 degrees. It ended up not being a dumb decision because I didn't leave my office all day. (It's crunch time, you guys. I realized I had to change my data around so I spent all day yesterday fixing the code and getting everything to look right...only I'm not sure if it still looks right. Awesome. Make sure you really love what you're doing before you go to grad school, haha.)

I keep digressing from the outfit! I have too much going on to keep my train of thought on the same track. (Was that weird to say...?) Anyway, I'm happy that I finally found the white, collared, sleeveless shirt I've been searching for, and this was the first outfit I thought to wear with it. Grey, white, and black--such an easy and obvious color combination for this time of year!
