April 23, 2018 – Life Detected (OOTD #269)

This just in: evidence of life on the Notre Dame campus!

And no, I’m not referring to the students — we’re definitely pretty dead. Thankfully, there are only a few weeks of school left.

While it still gets pretty in the evenings, it’s not freezing anymore, which means the plants are finally coming to life — which if you’ve been following my recent fascination with plants, I am very excited about.

With this outfit, I also got to break out my bare legs for the first time in forever. It was like, sunny with a high of 75 — perfect skirt weather.

I think you can tell how happy I was about the weather just based on how my outfit was put together — the happier I am, it seems, the the more likely I am to put together a cool outfit.

And not to brag on myself, but I think this was a cool outfit. It’s a composition of some really cool pieces — architectural jacket, asymmetrical shirt, and structural skirt — so maybe I can’t take as much credit for the cool factor, but I still put them all together, which counts for something.

I’m a little disappointed the asymmetrical-ness of the shirt isn’t really evident in these shots, as it seems the jacket kind of covers up the hemline, which is shorter on one side than the other. Oh well. Here’s what the shirt looks like by itself — I guess you can use your imagination?

Speaking of this jacket, I got it from Yellowcake Shop, the boutique of Project Runway designer Valerie Mayen. I actually watched her season a long time ago, so getting to do this collaboration with her was really cool! For the promotion, I’m going to be doing a social media post soon featuring this jacket, so keep an eye out for that! There’s no giveaway attached, but there will be a promo code for Yellowcake Shop.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
