First Day of classes!

Yesterday was the first day of classes for me this fall.  This semester I have almost all students I have had before, which is nice.  In one class, out of 27 students, 26 I have taught before.  In my other class, out of 18, I have taught 14 before.  And out of the four I haven't taught before, one is my new masters student, and another is my academic advisee, so I at least know those students.  Despite all the repeat students, I had a moment of "what will I wear on the first day?" last week, so I headed to a Goodwill (one I have never visited before).  I scored big time, including the skirt I wore for the first day of classes.
The skirt is very ME, and was only $3.79 at Goodwill.  The belt and cashmere sweater are also Goodwill finds, but ones I have owned for a while.  I debated between a jacket or cardigan (our building is freezing),  and decided since most of the students know me I could go more casual with a cardigan.  I then debated between my yellow cardigan or this pale green one.....obviously the green won out!

Gorgeous outfit - good choice! You and my friend S both find such wonderful things at Goodwill/ second-hand shops.

You find some really good deals at Goodwill !
It's almost unbelievable....
I like this look, would have loved it even more if the shirt was tucked and you still wore the belt :)
