Ok. So “adventures” is misleading. Unless non-stop grading and emails about upcoming papers, and increasingly sloppy lectures count as adventures. I thought not. Today is the eve of a glorious near-week break for Thanksgiving, followed by my final two teaching days of the term. I’ve got a ton to do in the next few weeks but the knowledge that I can do most of it in yoga pants or, even, my pjs with a certain naughty little dog curled up beside me makes all things possible. As well, this is the first year in nearly 10 that I’m not traveling over the holidays so I’ve got nearly 10 days between my grades being due and family arriving which seems like a blissful period of working, baking, and watching ridiculous holiday fare.
For the time being, I’ve been wearing pants. Or, more accurately, I did so a couple of weeks ago now. This last week has been unseasonably warm so leg-covering tubes of fabric seemed unconscionable.
|Blue cardigan: Gap
Black & white tie blouse: Old Navy
Jeggings: Old Navy
Gold flats: Nine West
Invisible, skinny patent black belt: Lane Bryant
This is one of my very favorite outfits from the last while. Unfortunately, it didn’t photograph well — all my poses are weird and the belt refused to be visible. This is what comes from trying to take outfits photos when I get home from class at 7:30 pm.
|Navy & white cardigan: Gap outlet
Chartreuse tank: Target
Brown ponte pants: NY & Co.
Blue suede flats: Jessica Simpson
Multi-strand silver necklace: Loft Outlet
I don’t have much to say about this. It was fine. I like this cardigan. I love the chartreuse-y-ness of this tank. But, basically, meh.
