End of the semester!

The last few weeks of the semester have been so crazy busy that updating this blog has been the last thing on my mind.  But I have managed to take some pictures during these crazy weeks.  I don't know the dates on them, nor do I have the time to write much about each one.  But at least I am posting something!  :)

I wore this to an awards luncheon last of my students nominated me for a teaching award!  :)  I was one of 7 faculty members recognized, but I was the only 1st year faculty, and the only faculty in the sciences!  The top is from the Talbots outlet last fall.  The green jackets is from Goodwill (of course).

This top was a $3.79 Goodwill purchase, but is originally Old Navy.

Nothing new in this outfit, just remixing some items from my closet.

The wrap top is 3/4 sleeve and is Forever 21 via Goodwill ($3.79)....the rest of the items I have had for ages.
The grey pants are from White House Black Market and were purchased with a holiday giftcard in January 2009.  The wrap top is Gap via Goodwill.  I know I sound like a broken record, but have I mentioned how totally awesome Goodwill is here?

I wore this casual jeans and pink and white striped blazer when I took my students on a field trip to the local tv station.

This dress is one of my "no thoughts" outfit, and thus represents a day where I just wanted to throw on one piece of clothing, keeping it sweet, simple, and professional.

This time of year is all about banquets.  I wore this Monday, when I needed to be in my office working during the day, but had a dinner banquet with one of my undergraduate students at 6pm on campus.  I took off the cardigan and I was good to go.

This outfit got a lot of discussion due to the black flower.  My male colleagues and male students like to spend an awful lot of time discussing my love of florals.  Whatever, I like it!  The skirt is Ann Taylor Loft, and I found it at the Salvation Army for $2.99.

This dress I got on clearance at Ann  Taylor Loft last Fall (I think under $15).  The cardigan is Ann Taylor via Goodwill ($3.79).  This is the same dress that JoAnn of Sidewalk Chalk wore this as dress #2 of the Dress Project.  I have always worn the dress wit ha lavender cardigan, as that is the first color I see with it, but Jo Ann's styling helped me to see the other colors in this dress.  Of course, I still wore my purple shoes with it!  Added the belt after taking the bottom picture, desiring a little bit more waist definition.  I love that this dress has pockets!

Finally, this is what I am actually wearing today!  The top is Ann Taylor, bought on clearance in the summer of 2008.  The capris are NY&Co vis Goodwill ($3.79).

YAAAYYYY! You're back! Man, I was worried I scared you off! I love the first and last outfits best. You think I maybe have a thing for green? Also, that dress with the detailing around the neckline that you wore to the banquet is very lovely.

Many, many congratulations on being nominated for a teaching award! That's fantastic!

You have worn some great outfits during the end of semester madness. I love the blue patterned dress especially!
