are those chili peppers? (they're leaves)

Today I think I pulled off a good Sophi-in-a-Nutshell outfit!


sweater top: thrifted, $4 -- skirt: thrifted, $5 -- shoes: BC Footwear, $40




I like that sweater top a lot because it's really ugly but also really awesome.

I absolutely LOVE those shoes, but they're kind of hard to wear with most things. It's been easier since I converted my skinnies into ankle-length jeans, but they're a little funky with most outfits. It's a shame, too, because they're so cute! I was eying them on ModCloth for months, but they were too expensive at $89. One day I was at Nordstrom Rack and saw them for $40 (still a splurge for me!) and snatched them up.


And... excitingly, for me anyway, one of my academic heroines complimented me on them! I love female professors who are brilliant, poised, and powerful while stil maintaining a sense of femininity and style. This professor is the head of the African and African American Studies department and I took a very big required freshman class with her last year. She also had a high-up undergrad admin position for a few years, too. We have a weird tendency to walk by each other at least once a month (I go to a big school, so that's pretty impressive), and when I walked past her today she said, "Cute shoes!" and it made me soooo happy.
