Today, I'm delighted to welcome my boyfriend, Chris, to the blog to share his fall uniform! He is also a grad student and in the same field as me--atmospheric sciences. He recently defended his Master's thesis and will be starting Ph.D. research soon.
This is weird--I'm normally the one behind the camera, so I'm not really sure how this all works. I guess I should start by explaining my outfits. In the fall/winter I tend to wear the same type of stuff, the only difference being whether I pull out the windbreaker or coat. Both outfits are pretty simple; the first is my go-to: pants and a sweater. I have quite a few pairs of pants in different colors and styles, but my preference lately has been skinny/slim. Personally, I like the fitted look and I can't really stand baggy clothing anymore. The same goes for sweaters. I have quite a few in different colors and they all seem to go well with something in my wardrobe. There are a few sweaters in my closet that are accidentally oversized, but I've embraced them and actually kind of like the look. The second outfit is a shirt and jeans--I use the term shirt to encompass a wide range of possibilities (work shirts, button ups, flannel, etc.). The one pictured is one of my favorites and it has elbow patches, something I was a skeptic of for the longest time. I also wear shirts with regular pants, but I particularly like this combination. It's kind of casual, but also a little professional (or not, perhaps I'm delusional). This wash of jeans would actually not be my first pick, but I ended up finding it in the sale section and liking it. I get all of my jeans at American Eagle...they have a size and fit that works perfectly for me, so I've always stuck with it. The beanie was a sale pick up at American Eagle as well. It's reversible and I wear it most days in the fall and winter--it tends to go with everything. I hope this wasn't too boring for whoever is reading--I definitely had fun taking the blog out for a spin!
