Prof as Student, What I Wore
I have been a writing fool, lately, but little of it has made its way toward this blog space. So may I fob you off with another photo or two? These are from a recent What I Wore capture, and perhaps you can tell they were grabbed on the run by a husband pressed into service at the last moment. So I can't even complain that he failed to fit the shoes (plain black Repettos, albeit with a slight heel). Nor that he only managed to capture slightly goofy facial expressions (or, possibly, that those were the only kind I managed to make while thinking how I would manage to catch the 7:55 ferry off the island).
The outfit is a transitional version of my summer uniform, which has been the white v-neck T (Gap) and jeans (this wide-legged pair is Michael Kors, finally hemmed for flats so that I could wear them more often). The close-toed Repettos made this slightly more work-worthy than my Birks, and I think the (tissue-thin Club Monaco) cashmere cardi adds a bit of polish. Accessorized with my wear-all-the-time Karen Chopik heart pendant and the lovely silk (hand-rolled-hemmed) scarf I won from Hostess worn as a belt. The silk in the scarf is so heavily lustrous that I was in some danger of being distracted by fingering it, but the Moodle course I took was so fast-paced that I didn't dare. In fact, I felt comfortable yet professionally dressed enough that I didn't think any more about clothes all morning -- and sometimes, really, that's the goal.
Now back to writing fool in other places . . . .what are you up to?
