Well, after a series of posts that nicely fell into little mini-themes, I’ve lost some momentum in that direction. Unless, “things I’ve bought recently” counts as a theme. Which I suppose it sort of does. Anyhow, this is/ has been a relatively busy week, full of meetings and such things. Like conference acceptances that mean delightful upcoming travel destinations. And the birth of adorably teensy nieces. Also my birthday.
I wore this sucker yesterday for my birthday. It’s a lovely sweatshirt material so it’s like wearing pajamas. The tights and boots were slightly overkill for the weather here; we’re tentatively making steps towards fall so it’s somewhat chilly in the morning when I leave my house (50F/ 10C) but then gets quite a bit hotter by the time I leave work (80F/ 27F). This makes it a giant pain to dress for the weather and since I love fall clothes, I’m unapologetically just declaring it time to wear boots.
Also, this dress requires tights when I teach as there’s quite a bit of side leg on display without them. I wore this out after work for drinks with the local key players at the fancy steakhouse. I took the tights off then because, at that point, I was awfully warm. And figured that the martinis with goat cheese stuffed olives I planned on consuming wouldn’t help matters.
This I wore on Monday for a day that begun with some writing in a coffee shop and then transitioned into the first of the week’s meetings. The jeans, like the previous dress, are both new. After a bunch of months where it’s been way too hot to contemplate sheathing my legs in fabric tubes, I’ve been wearing these pretty constantly since snagging them last week.
How are the rest of you enjoying the beginning of October?
