I thought this was a cute, comfy outfit when I walked out the door this morning. The top is part of my "shop my closet" efforts (I have not one but two pink skirts. It's true) and the skirt is equally stretchy and comfy. However, when I got to school, I noticed that shirt is, um, a little clingy on top. And that the skirt makes me look wide. Luckily, the cardigan is very long and loose, and well I pull it over my body, these unfortunate consequences of head to toe (or knee) jersey get mostly fixed.
It's always a struggle for me to want to dress like myself (which is youthful and casual) without killing any attempts to be professorial. But I don't want to dress professorially most of the time, because I find that boring and I did not pick this field to be constrained in my dress. While this is casual, a few students asked me for directions and asked about another professor's office hours, so maybe this outfit works. Good enough for a sunny day in April.
