One thing about the 6 item challenge is that if you air dry your clothes, you will inevitably have days where you can't wear anything. Yesterday was a big domestic labor day, so today has be heavy on the academic labor.
The past two days have been blissfully cool and un-summer like in Brooklyn. Right now it's 73 degrees, sunny and breezy. I hope the first day of school is like this. Today, since I really need to finish at least one syllabus today, I am dressed like it's a teaching day, from my 6 items. I probably won't wear this on the first day (I like black on the first day, to set a somber/serious/NYC tone), but maybe for one of the nicer days in October, after I've established some rapport with students?
A couple non-fashiony things:
For the Cannucks: the Guardian thinks weed may cause economic downfall for our neighbors to the north.
A NYTimes "Modern Love" piece about the vagaries of couples in academia.
If you're a blogger and interested in helping out an awesome academic who studies the politics of fashion blogging, send me an email and I'll pass your information to a wonderful researcher.
My sleepy adult cat really really wanted to be in this picture. She got up as soon as I set up the camera, off the futon, and just sat right in front of the camera. After I took the camera down, she ran back to the futon.
