I have a meeting today; the “University Management Team Meeting” which means it’s the hundreds of people with titles at or above Director on campus. That meant two things: First, that I needed to look passingly decent, and second that I was going to have to hoof it to the far side of campus. Those two considerations resulted in today’s outfit, which I smirkingly call Raisin Bran.
Both the pants and the cardigan are in a color that Coldwater Creek calls Raisin. The light wasn’t cooperating, but the color is a deep red/purple/burgundy color that walks the line between that and brown. I LOVE the color; it’s warm and rich but not overly assertive. And MASSIVELY on sale if you like the styles.
- Raisin Cardigan – Coldwater Creek
- Raisin Ponte Trousers – Coldwater Creek
- Raisin bracelet – Coldwater Creek (no longer on site)
- Raisin necklace – Coldwater Creek (no longer on site)
- Snake-print shell – Calvin Klein bought at Marshall’s
- Josef Seibel black shoes
I know; the shoes are boring. But they are also comfortable and practical for walking to the other side of campus, which was really the priority here.
Next week I will get Thursday Threads going again. It fell to the wayside for the holidays, but that is fixable!
