Not to talk about the weather again, but in case you somehow haven't heard, the Midwest has been hit with yet another cold front. According to my weather savvy friend, we're supposed to get wind chills as low as -40 and -60 between today and tomorrow. I don't think it would surprise anyone if I said that I've never imagined, let alone experienced, anything that cold in my life. As of when I'm writing this (it's 12:05 a.m. on Monday), my campus is probably the only one in the state of Illinois that has yet to cancel classes. Both the high school and community college in our town have closed their doors, yet my university still claims to be holding classes. I'm hoping that by the time this post publishes and you're reading this, I'll still be in bed because my school will have closed. Fingers crossed.
I'm telling you all of this because it's very likely that there will be very few outfit posts from me this week. I'll still be posting other things (especially since I'm hoping to have free time with no classes), but standing out in below zero temperatures to take photos is just not something my weak west coast blood can handle. Fortunately, I still have this outfit from Sunday to hold you over. While it wasn't all that cold yesterday (since living in the Midwest has taught me that 48 degrees is not cold), it still got dark early, and Mary convinced me that we could get away with taking pictures inside the classroom behind our office. I was a little bit skeptical at first, but I'm happy with the result. I don't know why I haven't learned to trust Mary when it comes to photography. She obviously knows best.
This outfit is pretty typical of me, but I wanted to figure out a new way to wear this fruit print dress. It's probably one of my most worn pieces, but it's somehow only made it onto the blog once. It's a problem.
Assuming I don't have class, I'll be job searching, catching up on blogs, and braving the cold for a few seconds to head over to my friend's apartment for some movies. If you're also confined to indoors today, what are you up to?
