Dressing for field trips can be a bit chancy. Unpredictable rain, uncomfortable bus rides, air conditioning, sun, you never know. I would rather be warm than cold, so I paired a simple oxford, typical, with a pair of straight jeans. The winner in this outfit is the canvas backpack and espadrille loafers. These are so comfortable and practical.
I found these $10 v-necks stored in a fixture removed from the sale section. When I find a nice basic, I buy it in every color. I bought three of them and will wear them all year round. I’m glad I held off on the J.Crew merino tunic, because the sweaters are essentially the same piece.
I hesitated when I spotted a pair of army green Theory cropped trousers at Marshalls because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to wear them until the fall approached. I decided that it would be a nice way to add some spring pastels while still looking professional. So far, I’ve worn the pants with the a pale grey sweater, a lilac blouse, and peach/pink blouse. I LOVE the look of yellow against the army green. I added the tie neck blouse to add a girly touch and the blue bag for an unexpected color.
