When Bri announced that the theme for this month's Third Thursday Threads was blush, two pieces immediately came to mind: hi-side split sweater and sleeveless blazer. Since I had worn the sweater more recently than the blazer, I chose the blazer.
I actually wore this outfit two times before it made its way to the blog. The first time, a colleague asked me to potentially sub for his classes, as a bug was making its way through his family, and he wasn't sure whether it was going to keep him home or not. Essentially that meant I need an outfit that could double duty for a full day of studying/research as well as potentially teaching. The second time, I had returns to make, and just felt like wearing this outfit again. That day, a sales associate told me that she loved my outfit and said I look so put together. I was flattered but also slightly amused, as it's just stretchy pants, a long sleeve tee, and flats. I guess that's what Stacy and Clinton meant by "completer piece".
