… wear stripes. It’s my third striped shirt in one week. Hey, what can I say? They go with everything. My mom got this shirt for me at our version of WalMart because it was dirt cheap, which also means that the quality is not the best, but it’s OK on cooler, dryer days (by that I mean it’s in the lower 90s and the humidity is under 70%) and it’ll work well for layering in the fall.

I was assigned as the secretary for the thesis committee at school today. I’ve never been a part of any thesis committee except on the other side of it (back in grad school we called it “the firing squad”), so I stumbled a bit at what to do. I did ask my boss, twice, but she was never very specific. That’s the problem with me though – I tend to micro-manage, so I have to have very specific details on my job, otherwise I’d flounder. Well, I have to remember to not be afraid and ask for specifics next time.
Anyway, I skipped the “Shoe” challenge of the We Love Target link-up because I have no shoes from Target. Not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that two of my local Targets are right next to Payless… (Actually I did buy my first pair of flats from Target but they went to Goodwill when I moved.) So here’s my “favorite score” from Target – this blouse. One that I can wear now anyway. My absolutely favorite Target score is my mustard cardigan, which, again, no. Not in Hanoi in late May.

Today I’m joining the We Love Target link-up with Whitney from Along the Lines of Style and Heidi from Literate & Stylish. I do miss Target, almost as much as I miss thrifting, so I’m kind of surprised to realize that I actually don’t have that much Target stuff. Mostly cardigans and tights, which I don’t even want to think about in this 90+ weather. Luckily I do have a few summery tops from Target. In the end I went with this T-shirt, even though it’s technically thrifted, because I wanted to wear these shorts and it’s the only one that goes with them.
By the way, these shorts that are nearly as old as me, can you believe it? My sister used to wear them in middle school, and then I wore them in middle school. They need to be let out quite a bit in the waist, but they’re still as good as new. Well, except for the wrinkles. I honestly did not realize how wrinkled they were until I looked at the photos. My apologies.
Top: Target (thrifted), Short: old, Loafers & Belt: thrifted

Another not-so-great outfit, but I don’t have to go into the office today, and honestly, it’s getting so hot here I don’t even feel like trying anymore. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going back to reading Sandman.

Oh man, I did not realize how pale my legs are until I looked at these photos. It’s not the first time I went barelegged this spring, but it’s not as noticeable because I always try to take pictures out in the sun instead of in the shades. My apologies. I’d totally understand if you react like this.
