I haven’t blogged in a while, and I miss it. Maybe you have too?
Maybe you wonder what’s up with What Professors Wear? Well, let me tell you.
Here’s my first day of school outfit:
I wore a white and black striped cotton blazer (from The Gap) with a black and white striped cotton shirt underneath and some black jeans (not shown here, but the brand is D. Jeans, and they’re skinny jeggings) with my black Bean Boots. Felt great. Also wore my mandated mask, and decided to pose with Jane Austen, who wears her mask too. You’ll see my Austen pin on my jacket because I taught Austen on day one of the semester. Yes I did. Juvenilia!
Day two of in-person teaching looked like this:
Not sure what this aesthetic is: I came up with “Lazy Maine-ah wearing pink fleece tights and dragon scales necklace.” Yeah? Fitting for teaching my monsters class.
I had to compare this with the pic from last year:
Last year I was going for the Coraline look.
This year–no Gaiman cosplaying. Just me. I dunno. I feel like I look younger this year–which is weird but interesting.
Day four: I forgot to take a picture! Oops! I wore my Bean hunting boots with Gortex lining, some dark blue Michael Kors jeans; a navy, lavender, and light blue striped pullover sweater similar in style to the yellow one shown above (cowl neck and front pocket pouch); and some clip-on earrings. I don’t often wear earrings, but I felt it yesterday.
I’ve also been teaching on Zoom on the days I don’t teach on campus. I haven’t taken any pictures, but I have learned some lessons: I need to wear short-sleeved shirts when I teach on Zoom. I get super hot at my home office.
How about you? What have you been wearing? Anything new?
