The graduate student/post-doc section of my conference wrapped up today and tonight we start the hardcore tenured academics part which lasts until Friday, so I took a quick break to snap today's simple (but hopefully interesting) science outfit. It's still nice and sunny outside so I teamed a rough-cut Opening Ceremony t-shirt with ancient Gap denim shorts I deliberately shrank in the wash last week because I've lost so much weight recently. In terms of footwear I opted for my black Converse tennis shoes, and slipped up on some trainer socks as I CAN'T STAND BARE FEET IN SHOES. To complete this 'I don't give a damn I'm just a California layabout' look I let my hair dry naturally into beachy waves, helped along with a touch of Bumble & Bumble texture cream. OK, that last part was a lie. I really let my hair dry naturally because I, err, brought the wrong kind of adapter for my travel hair-dryer! Curls all week then...
Since there are still two hours of glorious sunshine left until din-dins, I'm off to lie in the grass with an iPad full of scientific papers!
