This is from a couple of fridays ago. We have a new director in my directorate, and on that day he went round to meet the policy division we share an office with. Since I was basically the only researcher in that day, he introduced himself to me too and we chatted briefly. After speaking about my work for a bit, the policy guy who was showing the director round, who by virtue of faux jarvis cocker glasses, colourful socks and cardigans on a Friday fancies himself as the epitome of stylish menswear, helpfully added ‘Franca wears a lot of colourful tights’. The director looked bemused, paused for what felt like an eternity, and said ‘and they match your scarf’. Indeed.

dress – charity shop
scarf – swap
shoes – hush puppies

    Hopefully you managed to keep a straight face through the "fashion recap"

    I hope he said something helpful about you as a researcher rather than reducing you to a sentence about outstanding things that you wear! You do not know how much faux jarvis cocker glasses annoy me! What a great print!

    Indeed, indeed! How funny and odd.

    And that is a fanTAStic scarf.

    I love the shade of blue of your tight and the touch of colour of the scarf. They make the whole outfit really lively, Franca.

    Ha! I dread to think what my 'sartorial summary' would be. Far less interesting than yours, no doubt! You and your tights are so getting a mention on #FBFF this Friday!

    That made me laugh. Indeed. πŸ™‚ I love these tights and that scarf is a fantastic accessory for this outfit! You look beautiful.

    Such a gorgeous scarf and I love how your tights pick up the colour.
    Sounds like Jarvis is very observant πŸ˜€ Colourful indeed πŸ™‚

    So funny! It's true, too.
    This is the exact sort of colorful outfit I'd like to wear- mostly neutrals, but with colorful touches. I'm watching and learning.

    They DO MATCH your skirt AND YOU look fabulous.
    That scarf is just perfect.

    HAHAHA, well how precious to be noticed like that. I like your hushies and scarf! I've recently thrifted a beautiful bright scarf and I'm going to pass it on to a good friend of mine….lucky gal really, because I REALLY like it!

    Love those tights!

    The weird thing was he said this AFTER I'd already talked about my work! He
    did say something about work too, but the tights thing was just so random!

    It's the Disqus programme, the only way you can do replies in blogger. It's
    highly temperamental though, so consider it properly before installing! I
    did a post on its pros and cons here:
