Mondays are typically very low-maintenance. Neither Christopher nor I teach, so we often spend the day working together from our dining room table, wearing sweatpants and drinking coffee while we read or grade. By 4:30 today, we were both starting to get cabin fever so we decided to finally get dressed and get some Thai food at the geriatric hour of 5:15. Jeans, a scarf, and a trench are pretty simple go-to pieces, but we had to hurry--pad thai just doesn't taste the same if you're don't get it in the 5 o'clock hour :)

Nice! I wish I had Thai right now. I'm also a bit jealous that you're not currently getting another foot of snow dumped on you.

So very simple but so very classic. I love how this look is giving me an almost 60s vibe-- I think it's the combo of the high knot, glasses and trench. And Thai food? OMG YUM. :)

The street you live on looks absolutely magical. Love the color of your scarf too, and the way you pull off those pants! I can't do a flare or straight leg to save my life!

If the boyfriend, and I get too stir crazy we will do just about anything to get out of the house.

Gah, you look so unbearably chic in that trench!

BiblioMOMia said...

5:15 is also known as the "parent hour." I can't remember the last time we got to eat at a normal time, like 7!

The trench is just lovely on you, especially with those fab glasses.

Eclectic Flair said...

You look super stylish and your legs look a mile long, love it!

Those trousers are fabulous on you, and paired with the trench you seem very Annie Hall!

kelsey said...

I love this outfit on you! My husband and I get off work at 4 p.m. so we always eat supper around 5. I love it! Then we get a snack around 8 or so, before we get in bed. Ha...we're so old.

Forever 21 has great clutches, don't they? One of my favorites is from there.

As a fellow nerd, I must say that I adore you and everything you do! Thank you so much for keeping this blog going. You are the kind of woman all girls should aspire to be like. Smart, witty, sensible, a woman with her own style, book list, and set of ideals. You inspire me to be a better person inside and out, and I thank you for it.

Paige said...

I think this is my favorite so far!
