Outfit: Juxtaposition

One of the best parts about working in academia is the summer. It’s a misnomer, however, that teachers and professors “don’t work” during the summer. We work, it is just a different kind of work. I work from Italy and when I get home, I work in my pajamas from home. Unfortunately, the summer is coming to an end and in just two weeks I have to start putting on real clothes, heading to work every morning, and teaching. None of which can be done in your pjs (sadly). But that’s ok, I have discovered the next best thing – J.Crew’s Turner pant. All the comfort of pajamas with all the style of J.Crew (and I didn’t even have to hem them)!

Zara blazer (similar) // Madewell tee // J.Crew Turner pant // C. Wonder leopard pumps (similar) // Tory Burch bag (similar)

I paired mine with a t-shirt and blazer because I love the juxtaposition of slouchy and structured, which is exactly what these pants are! Plus the elastic waistband is very forgiving, remember I just returned from 3 months in the land of pasta. I have a lot of working out ahead of me lol.

Have you tried the Turner pant?

PS – this weekend is very exciting, it’s the weekend my best friend finally returns from her 10-month research grant in Barbados!
