Thursday felt like the last day of summer vacation......so I broke out jeans (folded up to be capris) a summer floral camp shirt and my new yellow cashmere cardigan.
Friday we had a faculty meeting and department orientation for the new grad students. So I decided to dress up a bit.
The jacket is new to me. I found it recently at the Salvation Army for $3.49. It is Coldwater Creek. I have had that skirt for a while now, I got it at a consignment store when I lived in Canada. Just a plain yellow Target tee underneath the jacket. In the afternoon I went to the Starbuck's on campus for a cold drink, and a woman (clearly a parent moving in her child) said to me "You must work at the University. You are the only person I have seen today that isn't a sweaty mess in shorts from moving boxes. You look so composed and put together." Got to love freshmen parents.
