Almost there, Style Nation. I’ve got 4 remixes left after today. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to branching out of these 30 pieces. That said, I’ve also been surprised by how little I’ve been dying to wear my other stuff. I’ll have my final thoughts on this whole experience later on but they can probably be summed up by saying that it’s given me a helpful sense of sartorial focus.
That said, this week’s sprint to the finish line got side-tracked by grading and an oncoming cold. I had big plans to wear real clothes yesterday but I just never got there.
Here’s the other recent outfits:
Striped shirt: Joe
Cargos and slippers: Old Navy
May I present to you a Christmas ham shaped like the mini-FR? He wanted to be in the picture and then, as we waited for the flash, a squirrel had the temerity to scamper across my porch. All of a sudden, blogging seemed like the stupidest thing ever. This is my desperate attempt to hang on to him. Also, you get to see my slippers. Exciting, no? I took this picture later in the day and I forgot to put shoes back on.
Sweater and skirt (it’s the reverse of the blue one): Gap
Tights: Hue — you can’t see it, but they’ve got a chevron pattern.
Necklace: Anthro, super sale. Seriously. I paid $10. It’s original price was $60, which I would NEVER have paid.
I wore this for my last day of teaching. The necklace is pretty glorious. Made even more so by the deal I got on it. I’m heading into Austin this weekend to do some Christmas shopping and I’m hoping to score some similar deals. But back to my last day of classes, not much to say other than that both my students and I were fried. I’ve made a couple of serious, but relatively minor, mistakes recently that made me particularly happy to see the end of the term — with the home that I can get my crap together for next term.
Dress as skirt: Old Navy
Navy tights: Hue
Gold flats: Nine West
Gold flats: Nine West
This is today’s outfit. And while it looks relatively dressy, it was/ is actually super comfortable. God bless you, cotton jersey. One thing that I’m continually surprised by is how comfortable these tights are. I only took them off when I got home so that the mini-FR wouldn’t snag them. Otherwise, I totally would have kept them on. This, to me, is astonishing.
How are you guys handling the onslaught of the cold weather? It’s even cold here (and, by cold, I mean the 50s/10s — though it was in the 80s/20s just days ago).
I’m heading back to do some more grading, but am going to give myself a dancing movie marathon after dinner to keep my spirits up. On the ticket? Center Stage and Dirty Dancing. Other suggestions?
