I second A-Dubs’ jubilation on the end of term. I submitted my last set of grades for the term yesterday — though now the trick is to rein in my sense that I’m on vacation, until I actually leave on Tuesday — so things are pretty awesome here. Classes ended last week so this week has meant a bunch of end of term meetings as I transition out of professional wear, into sweatpants. I chose — inadvertently — to wear variations on a “grey & black stripes with blue accents” theme.
So I wore this today to work at a coffee shop and then to meet other assistant professors from my department for lunch to discuss mentorship. Also, I’m wearing jeggings. I know. I’m surprised too. But, ohmigod, are they the most comfortable things ever. I love them. I’m never wearing anything else (this may be an untruth).
Also, this blazer continues to be a workhorse. I’m honestly a little surprised by how much wear I get out of a striped blazer. Perhaps the fact that it is ludicrously flattering helps somewhat. I mean, seriously.
This, I wore to give an exam earlier this week. I figured it was one last chance to dress up for my students. The exam was at 8 in the morning so I couldn’t wear what I wanted (my pajamas, back in bed), so I might as well dress up. Also, the mini-FR is super into smelling my skirt here for unknown reasons.
I suspect this is it from me until the new year so I hope everyone enjoys the next few weeks!
