Dressing it Down

IMG_7068

Admittedly, this outfit sort of screams autumn. Then again, the weather in San Francisco sort of feels like autumn all year round, so it makes sense to dress accordingly. Last week it dipped down into the low 50′s during the day and the entire city freaked out; this week it’s back in the 60′s and 70′s, and all is right with the world again.

Pairing this structured dress with the relaxed military jacket and boots strikes the perfect note for my generally casual office. The bright accessories added some contrast against the subdued colors.

Audi is a biotech professional in San Francisco, California. Her blog, Fashion for Nerds, was born out of the frustration of feeling as if science and fashion were doomed to be forever divided. Through her blog she discovered she wasn’t the only one who believes that style has its place even in a scientific workplace; over the years she has met countless other women who struggle to prevent their love of fashion from hindering their credibility as technical leaders. Now in her mid-forties, Audi particularly enjoys testing the boundaries of “age-appropriate” dressing and thinks most style rules were made to be broken. Another important influence on her style is the problem of chronic foot pain, an issue which is exacerbated by San Francisco’s hilly streets and one that she is resolved not to let defeat her obsession with great looking shoes.
