I am finally over my jet lag, but I found out my wisdom tooth is infected, which isn’t making me feel too great… Got some meds and hopefully I’ll be back to 100% soon! I am also back at work, and slowly easing back into the daily routine, it has been a struggle getting back into it after relaxing and being out of the country!
I have my committee meeting next week (after fourth year we meet with our dissertation committee to update them on our progress and future plans/timeline to graduation), and this is an outfit that I am planning on wearing! It is a rather casual meeting, but I still want to look presentable, so I opted for simple solid colors that definitely make a pop!
Everything that I am wearing I bought while I was abroad (with the exception of the shoes)! I fell in love with Zara and Mango stores, found throughout Europe, and the prices are really affordable compared to their counterpart stores here in the USA! I had a previous pair of jeans from Zara that were super comfortable, so of course I tried on a few pairs and ended up buying this pair, dark stretchy jeggings from Zara! I also loved Zara’s blazers! They had a few styles on sale, and I almost bought a white blazer (so close!) but decided against it because I don’t have the best luck with not spilling on white things… I ended up finding this even more flattering yellow blazer that was more expensive but definitely worth it! It is made of quality material and I fell in love with the cut!
The shirt underneath is a simple black tank from Forever21, paired with heeled booties from Express. I saw this purse while shopping at Zara, it looks like leather and is reversible, red on the inside, with a small zip up pouch inside to keep all your belongings safe. I really like it because it is big enough to fit my stuff while not needing to be too big, and it is jus so stylish! And once I get tired of the black I can wear it red! My jewelry was bought in Barcelona, I loved it! I went to a small boutique store and found these earrings and statement necklace! And lastly, these big cat eye sunglasses were only 20 euro from Mango! I had been on the lookout for cat eye sunglasses for a while now, and these are great quality for their price! They block out the sun well!

My hair has gotten so long, by the way, now looking at the photos! I am thinking of getting it cut soon (short, like up to my shoulders for something new), but I kind of want to do something fun with it before, like dying it a fun ombre? dark blue? What would you think? Should I cut it or leave it? Short or just a trim? Ombre or highlights?
Wish me luck with my committee meeting next week! I will likely have an idea of my timeline to graduation and the rest of the work I will be doing the rest of my time in my PhD! And then getting some career advice!
