Hello, and welcome once again to chemistry lab land. Look, sometimes I gotta go where the photographer is, right? And when the photographer is my husband that usually means the chemistry lab.

I actually wore this outfit to my Thursday night graduate school class that I’m taking for fun. I needed to wear blue because it was spirit week at the university where I work and our school’s colors are royal blue and red and the university president asked us to wear blue. So, here I am.

But! I wanted to wear my new animal print wedges ASAP! You may recall my hunt for a pair of Lucky Brand leopard print wedge booties. Alas, I never found those in my size (it’s an 8, by the way) and I was tired of waiting for them to show up on ebay. Then I found these TOMS by chance and they were on sale with free shipping from Nordstrom. Um, okay. I’ll try them. Admittedly, they don’t have quite the same pop as the print on the Lucky Brand ones but they sure are comfy! So, I think they’ll do.

Oh, the other reason I paired this blouse with the tan accents is because of this:

The Milkmaid, by Johannes Vermeer

That is the current Style Imitating Art choice. I thought the camel color of my blazer with the blue of the shirt did a decent job of calling out the top two colors of the milkmaid’s dress.
