I wore this outfit to a small symposium where I presented a poster on my research. It’s a pretty casual event, but I wanted to get just a bit dressed up because it’s fun for me and I felt like I should as a presenter. I even wore some eye shadow (though I think eyeliner would have been a good idea…I wish I could put it on easily!). I’ve been dying to style this tulle skirt, but I hesitate wearing it with black tights/shoes. It was warm enough to not have to wear tights, and I got to wear my nude heels! Win-win.



I understand why most fashion bloggers wear or hold their bags without anything inside of them. I filled my satchel to the brim because I left after the photos were taken, and it was definitely a little too heavy to comfortably “model” it. I purchased this satchel to mainly use for academic events like symposiums and conferences. I don’t like hauling a backpack around (even though lots of people do!). The satchel makes me feel more grown up.

  1. Do you know if the shoes you’re wearing are still available? I’ve been looking for a pair of nude heels and those are super cute! Love the rest of the outfit too 🙂
