Eeps, sorry this is so late in the day! This morning I was Bad T.A., who had to wake up early to do the assigned reading before class. Luckily, this paid off and I had two terrific discussions about French Revolutionary literature (seriously, more exciting than it sounds!).

Because I was in a rush, I went with one of my go-to ensembles: this striped button-up (bought for $5) layered under a black dress, tights and boots. And these two pairs of tights really did the trick--I was warm and cozy even in the single digit degrees.

I really like your go-to outfit -- it's classic and looks so pulled-together. Love the pop of color the belt gives off too.
French Revolutionary lit actually does sound interesting to me -- I'm a history sponge.

I actually don't have a 'go to' outfit, but I'm thinking that it makes so much sense. I like that your outfit is v classic and versatile.

Perfect choice for a go-to outfit! It looks nice and put together and easy enough to change up the belts and tights for a different look.
