My campus office is small and windowless, and my current computer runs Windows 97 (Arts faculties are sooooo well funded, right now). Nonetheless, it’s the only place I can get down to work these days. So I’ve been trying to go to campus for at least two hours a day.
The catch – because there’s always a catch – is that a number of my former students (who might be my students, again, next term) are taking courses right down the hall. I thus feel a leeeetle pressure to keep things sort of business casual. This is today’s effort.
I enjoy how this recently-acquired top creates a flower garland around my shoulders and neck. I think this means I don’t need a necklace.
(I don’t need a necklace, right?)
With this post, I welcome trouser jeans back into my wardrobe. My last ones got dated (too low slung) and worn at the heels (remember when all jeans had to be too long for our legs?). But these I found at the grocery store last week, and they seem good so far. . .
Also, I read somewhere reputable that wide-legged trousers should be worn with substantial shoes, not the pointy-toe pumps I’ve favoured to date. As it’s too cold for wedges today, I pressed these mannish foot-hugs into service, assuming that the flower garland would draw the eye up. It totally draws the eye up. . . . , right?
