Thursday, my students were taking their midterm. Since I didn’t have to actually teach class I took the opportunity to dress up rather than down. I know sometimes when I am in the audience observing their speeches, or running a review game that I might dress a little more casually– but I try not to have too many causal days in a row. After all, I am still the authority figure and even if I am letting up a bit on some things now that we are halfway through the semester I don’t want my class thinking that they can take advantage of me.
Also, oddly enough, sometimes it is easier and quicker to pull out a dressier outfit, rather than a casual one. Think about it. A dress and some heels is simple compared to a pair of khaki’s, camisole, blouse, casual shoes, etc. So, I wore a sleeveless zebra stripe printed shell, a 3/4 sleeve black cardigan, a black pencil skirt, and my black pointy-toed pumps. I acessorized with a silver and shell necklace, a silver bracelet watch, a silver Pandora charm bracelet, and a hair-tie/bracelet.
The weather has been so nice and gorgeous I don’t mind wearing skirts and dresses! Do you find that the weather has a big effect on what you wear?
