There’s nothing easier in the first two weeks of classes than a dress. As I get used to being back on a fall routine, I do appreciate the ease of one piece dressing. Almost as much as I appreciate that my classes this fall are ones I’ve taught numerous times before and that one class is smart, super chatty, and already laughing at my HILARIOUS jokes, making the back-to-school transition reasonably seamless.
Note: in these pictures, I am not wearing white pantyhose. You’ll see what I mean.
I wore this dress for my second day of classes last week (the first day outfit is coming soon, horribly out of order). This dress is an old favorite, so it seemed a natural choice for a day where we moved beyond basic syllabus material and into the course proper.
Excuse the weird pose here, but I wanted to show a little bit more shoe detail. An aim which failed because the wedge of my shoe is pretty much the color of my hardwood floors.
This dress I wore yesterday after picking it up over the weekend. And, reader, I’m in love. It has pockets! It has stripes! It’s made of ponte material so it’s comfortable! It’s flattering! All things that emphatically put it into the win category for me. To the extent that I’m considering picking it up in another color.
Weirdly enough for me, though, is that both these dresses are full-on neutrals. And as a hardcore member of Team Color, this feels strange. Not to worry, though. I’ve got a technicolor outfit planned for tomorrow’s class.
Did everyone have a good Labor Day weekend?
