Risk and the classroom
Inspired by D-Med's awesome first day of class ensemble yesterday, I wanted to float this by the readers. I am not teaching today (or until Monday), but while it's still "transitioning" weather outside, could this (or something similar) work in a classroom? The jeans give it a casual vibe, but the jacket, from my "interview suit" (which I dislike, as suits are just not my thing), formals (yep, using it as a verb) it up a notch). Or maybe it's too early for this kind of laid back wardrobe choice?
I'm working from home today, (the blazer will get ditched if Buster decides to use me a sa climbing pole, which begins around 10 AM), although we'd hoped it would be nice enough for the beach today. Maybe tomorrow. Other than that, we don't have many plans. I got some reviews for a different paper back yesterday, and while they were positive, they wanted significant changes. But one of the reviewers seemed agitated at my claims, which first annoyed me, but then Blokey and I had a good laugh. Sometimes, there's just no pleasing some people.
I guess there's this fashion thing going on somewhere in Manhattan. I guess some bloggers are having their own events? That's cool and I'll read some bloggers (but not many) talk about this. I have nerdy research, writing, and class prep to do. The nice thing about being very geeky in NYC is that I generally don't care if I'm missing much. My manuscript is more pressing than, as Jezebel calls it, "rich men wanting to make money."
Are you interested in fashion week? Do you like reading blogger's coverage of it?
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
