If you're a grad student (or any sort of student) trying to figure out how to dress a bit more put-together, I've got just the outfit for you: a loose button-down shirt, boyfriend jeans, and wedged sandals. If any of my colleagues came up to me and asked for a no-fail outfit combination that makes me look like I know what I'm doing even though I'm a student and I really don't actually know what I'm doing, I'd show them a picture of this outfit. Grad students are basically the definition of "fake it 'til you make it!"
In all seriousness, this is a perfect outfit formula! It was made even better by the fact that it was warm enough to go out sans coat or jacket. :) Can you spot the cat hair on me? I swear I spent ten minutes de-hairing myself before I left for school, but this shirt kept attracting it so I didn't make it out unscathed. #catladylife
