TGIF, Style Nation. This week has felt like an eon so it’s nice to see it’s tail end. Today actually ended the week on a high note. My classes went really well today and I had some good post-class conversations with my students that were interesting, not the usual demands for extensions. There’s something about a good class that is really invigorating — though, of course, a bad class is equivalently enervating–and this helped mitigate the disappointment of hearing some bad news about an article I had out.
One thing that made my day is that I got a number of compliments on today’s outfit.
Dress and silver beads: LOFT Outlet
Black shirt: Target
Black tights: Hue
Blue shoes: Joe
I was pretty happy with this — and, given how warm it’s getting here, this is probably one of the last days I can wear this dress to teach as it feels a little short without tights.
This is a sharp change in the weather from last week when I wore this:
Pants: NY & Co.
Striped shirt: Joe
Necklace: as above
Then, I desperately needed layers as it was super windy. Today, the tights were pretty warm. I finding a little difficult to dress with these sharp fluctuations in weather. Since it’s still February, I automatically head to my drawer with long sleeved tops and sweaters but once I get outside I’m often overdressed. Or I go for the short-sleeved tops which work midday but once the sun goes down, it’s pretty chilly. Now, these are obviously minor problems in all sorts of ways (and my apologies go to those of you who are still in winter’s grip) but I still find that it creates a kind of antagonism between my clothes and myself.
How do you prepare yourself for dressing in-between seasons? Any fun weekend plans?
