week three of lecturing and it is becoming very clear that my outfits are stuck in grad student/TA mode. for my first lecture, i wore my loup charmant scallop dress and lucchese boots. last week was a denim etoile isabel marant dress and mocs.
granted, i tend to dress better when it's chillier, but in the midst of packing for next weekend's move, i realized that i had purged more things than i should have from my closet over the past 3 years. becoming a mama altered my relationship to my body and my work, and now i'm left with comfortable leggings, sweatshirts, and the occasional piece from the archives.
i think it's time to commit to a blazer, but i can't find anything i like. i tried on J.Crew's hacking jacket while in california and didn't like the fit on me. i wonder if anyone has tried on the annette jacket at Steven Alan? a little iffy on double-breasted jackets, and wool-cotton blend doesn't sounds quite right to me, yet it looks promising.
