It's funny to me how much noteworthy architecture pops up on in my outfit posts. I started this blog as an outlet for some of my non-professional interests, and yet my academic background just keeps popping up in the background. Given the kind of sightseeing we do, it shouldn't be altogether surprising - today it was the Bauhaus Archive, the Nordic Embassy complex, and, seen here, Mies' Neue Nationalgalerie - but I still think it's a little funny that my ostensible 'fashion blog' posts could also serve as flashcards for a course on modern architecture.

Another lovely outfit! Emily, I absolutely love your blog! It's so unique and I love how effortlessly chic you look in every single photo. So inspiring. I love you as a source for weekend outfit ideas. I love this necklace and the relaxed fit and color of your skirt. The two pieces really contrast each other well!

Like I always say: good architecture only makes ones outfits that much chicer.

I love your architecture references! They (and your travel stories) make your blog so unique and much more interesting than just outfit posts (even though I love the outfits).

Oh yes, agree with Theresa--the architecture/backgrounds totally make the posts!

I think it's hard to keep our professional interests out of our lives completely. I am completely obsessed with listening to NPR's On the Media lately while I do housechores (since I'm a hausfrau now), and I didn't know why until my husband said, "Duh, it's a podcast about media and information and LIBRARIANSHIP. And you are a librarian." Oh, yeah, right. (At least I don't listen to This Week In Computer Hardware like my husband. Blerg.)

I feel the same way about my general academic life, too.  I try not to intellectualize fashion or write like I would when I'm working, but I swear, some of the time it just creeeeeeps its way back in.  I, for one, love the architecture in these posts.

Also love this color combo!  You are the queen of various and interesting pinks.  You should get a banner that says that.  Or at least a t-shirt.

I always love your backdrops - i think you have the most interesting backdrops out of all the blogs i read! By the way, i'm still loving that gorgeous skirt :)

I just stumbled across your blog.  Love it!  My husband and I were in Berlin at the start of the summer and I posed in front of the Mies building (and the Bauhaus archiv) as well.  If you haven't already explored it, I am sure that you'll love the trendy Hakesescher Markt neighborhood.  There's a great Moroccan restaurant called Kasbah and a beautiful little jewelry designer (who's name I've forgotten - eek) just a few storefronts down from a pretty hip (and also delish) Vietnamese noodle place named Monsieur Vuong.   Enjoy!

Digging this whole look, specially the tulip skirt!

I love how much wear you're getting out of this skirt.  I really liked it as a dress, but it looks so much more chic as a skirt.  Great vision and styling on your part!
