Nothing like a busy week or two to provide blog fodder, right? I have three, that’s right THREE (and it’s actually three plus one variation), outfits for you today — and a bunch still waiting to be blogged. With Halloween, a friend’s birthday, another friend’s band playing, and the usual social shenanigans, I’ve got a number of bloggable casual outfits for y’all.
To start things off, here’s what I wore to teach on Halloween and, later, out for drinks & cupcakes to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Note that I’m emphatically not a costume person — as both A-Dubs and D-Med who have spent many a Halloween with me know — but that my students thought I was in costume anyhow. I’ll take guesses as to what you think they thought I was (I don’t know what they thought though as I was too busy spluttering out that I wasn’t in costume).
Anyhow, a good time was had by all. Apart from our usual server, who we did our best to get fired by being so hilarious that we kept distracting him from his other tables.
This next outfit is from the next evening out. You’ll note that over the next series of photos temperatures were dropping as my legs require more and more covering up.
I don’t have much to say about this — apart from the fact that I love that it is FINALLY tights weather here (a love that I’m sure won’t be shared by many of you who have had this weather for a while already and have far more of it to look forward to than I do). Also, the jean jacket fits better than that first picture makes it seem.
Lastly, here is the outfit I wore the third night out for the performance of a band that two of my friends are in. And on this night even tights wouldn’t cut it as leg covers.
I wore this same outfit with some alterations earlier in the work for a day split between a coffee shop, working, and campus, attending meetings. Variations of this outfit are turning into a bit of a uniform for non-teaching campus days.
Are you a stick-in-the-mud about Halloween like me? Or did you dress up?
