geek chic

{J. Crew striped top, Levi's button up, edc denim, penny loafers from Alloy, asos laptop case, Bonlook glasses}

Somedays I don't really want to dress up, I want to throw on jeans, a loose fitting top and call it a day! But I can't really do that in my line of work- so I jazz up "low-key" as much as I can on those days. Really it's all about the extra's anyway, an outfit isn't automatically spectacular- it's the way you present the whole package!  So even though today's outfit was very low maintenance, I still felt very much on it, with my smartie alter ego in tow.

  9. Heck yeah! You look adorable. My version of this is a flowy tunic over jeans, which a male friend once said to me that he didn't "get". I just said sometimes a girl needs a break!
