Hi All! I’m nearly two weeks into the term and, after a term off of teaching, I am ex. haust. ed. With the start of term business and the return to department service, the last two weeks have been super busy. This will all settle itself down shortly, no doubt, but getting back into the swing of things has me crashing with Portlandia marathons when I get home.
One thing that’s unexpectedly taken some adjustment is getting back into the professorial sartorial game. After eight months of dressing super casually, I’ve found that my sense of appropriate dressing needs some recalibration. Or, at the very least, demands a ludicrous amount of thought each morning. Something I super appreciate at 6 am.
This was my first day of classes outfit. In retrospect, I would have worn a necklace. Though, actually, since these photos are a re-creation 10 days after the fact, I may well have done so and just forgotten.
This blazer is my new favorite thing though. Well, along with its solid grey twin. They fit super well and look far more expensive than they were. So, score.
Again, clearly I need to re-learn how to accessorize. Anyhow, I had planned to wear purple tights to introduce some color to the outfit but my purple tights are control tops and since I had a 9 hour day ahead of me, that seemed like a recipe for a stress headache. So these Hue workhouses were called up from the minors.
How are you managing the doldrums that is the end of January?
