Spring Semester 2012–GO!

Today was my first day of Spring Semester 2012.  I am teaching 2 sections of Effective Speaking.  One on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11-12:15 and the other on Fridays from 11-1:50.  I will admit, that I get really excited for the first day of class and have trouble sleeping.  To me, it represents a blank slate and a world of possibilities.  I always have high hopes for the semester in the first few weeks.

Today, I needed an outfit that would convey authority and personality.  This outfit is tried and true, see here.  That can be viewed as both a positive and a negative.  This outfit is very safe– there is minimal accessorizing going on.  But, I need to give them something safe in order to start to get to know me.  As the semester goes on, I will take more liberties with my outfits.  But, dressing for the occasion is an important concept.

Black and white dress: Target. Purple cardigan: Gift from mother-in-law. Black skinny belt: Unknown. Brown watch: Wal-Mart. Purple cluster earrings: Wal-Mart. Black pointy-toed pumps: Shoe Carnival.

It was quite warm out today for a Winter day in the NE.  I heard it got up to about 50 degrees or so.  None-the-less, it was rainy and windy this morning.  Here I am bundled up and ready to tromp through puddles on my way to campus!

Black coat: Target. Purple scarf: Wal-Mart. Brown purse: (thrifted.) Black Messenger bag: New York. Black rain boots: Old Navy. Sunglasses: Target.


I can’t wait for Thursday– I already have a few outfits in mind!  Stop by to see what I wear the next time I teach and my second “first day” of the Spring Semester 2012.

    You did the right wearing your Rubber Boots, they save your Tights getting splashed and keep your feet dry and you look quite dishy.
