I loved reading all your comments yesterday about what goes into a first-day-with-new-students outfit. (Plus it was fun to hear that Jill and Natalya have the same dress!). Spoozyliciouzz (who always looks fantastic) was right on the mark--for the first time in a new classroom, you want your outfit to be blank enough to keep them guessing. Even though this is my fourth year teaching, I still get the first day jitters!
This skirt has always been a little bit too big (see here or here or here), so I finally dragged myself to the tailor and for a mere $6, got it taken in to fit just perfectly.
Today's outfit feels very back-to-school, even though I spent the day mostly off campus doing my own research. I just finished my PhD coursework in the spring, so I'm starting a new stage of lots of solitary research and reading. So far it's wonderful, but I hope I can keep up the snazzy outfits during the days I'm holed up in my study reading :)
