works cited: anthro shirt (gift from my little sister several years back); skirt c/o ruche; target wedges
A lot of schools are starting this week, and mine is no exception. Even though I relocated to DC, I was lucky enough to get offered an online course (thank you, staffing shortage) along with my fellowship for the fall, so yesterday was my first day of teaching. Teaching online is a very different format than my other first days, but I still had to get dressed in order to feel prepared and confident enough to tackle the intimidating virtual classroom programs. Later, Christopher told me that his career counselor encouraged him to put on his suit even for phone interviews; evidently being dressed for the situation really helps you get in the right mindset, even if nobody at the other end can see your high heels or tie. Happy first day/week of teaching to all you other students and teachers out there! Hope it is a good one and nobody throws up on their shoes like I always feel like doing on the first day :)
P.S. I've gotten a couple questions about this skirt--it runs small, if you're thinking of getting it. I ordered a size up for a perfect fit.
