Nothing fancy today; I have to hike across campus for a 1pm meeting, so comfort was the name of the game. This is the ONLY top I have that has even a little of the color of the shoes I ordered last week in it, and since those seemed very comfortable and like good candidates for today’s walk, this shirt won.

Top: Tommy Hilfiger, couple of seasons old
SIDE NOTE ON THE TOP: The fabric on this top is lovely and soft, but I still waffle on the topic of anything that reads as horizontal stripes. This isn’t as flattering as I might like.

Glasses: (Progressive Bifocals *sigh*) Jessica McClintock JMC013 in Amethyst
