My stylish journey through academia—equal parts fashion, travel, and higher education!

Best way to start the day!

Afternoon in #LakeComo on our way back to #Florence

I’ve got to be honest, I didn’t expect #switzerland to be so perfectly manicured and beautiful, and for me to like it so much! There were so many destinations I put in front of it, but now I can’t wait to return and explore the rest! (at Bern City)
Exploring beautiful #bern today! Fun Bern facts 1) Einstein came up with E=MC squared here, 2) #Toblerone was invented (and is still manufactured) here, and 3) Swiss cheese (aka ementhal cheese) comes from here too! Also it’s the capital of #Switzerland!

Anonymous said: I see you have a gorgeous fluted skirt in red, yellow and navy. Might I ask where I can buy it myself? Sorry, you just make it look so fabulous! X

Thank you and your question is so perfectly timed! I just finished a blog post for Monday featuring this skirt! You can find it here (but it won’t be live until Monday at midnight) - http://historyinhighheels.blogspot.com/2014/07/outfit-skirting-issue.html

The skirt is from J.Crew (naturally) and they are constantly releasing it in new colors (which means the old colors go on sale). I scoop up  a new color every time they go on sale. It really is the perfect skirt!

It runs true to size and fits like a dream!

Probably the coolest thing I have ever done! #flying #florenceforfun #switzerland (at Twin Paragliding)

Went #paragliding off the side of a mountain in the #Swiss #Alps this morning. Scary but fun. One word, #breathtaking!
