Today I will meet my students for the semester. I want to be sure to set myself apart from undergraduates without being too overdressed in comparison to my fellow TAs. The blazer, denim skirt, fun shoe combination seemed the perfect choice.
I have praised this old denim pencil skirt of mine many a times for its comfort, versatility, and chicness. I am now on the lookout for similar skirt to enter into the rotation and am looking forward to the slightly cooler weather when corduroy will be a more appropriate option.
I think the black blazer blazer gives this look a professional vibe while the fuchsia shoes hopefully signal to my students that I am the creative exciting TA. I loved wearing these shoes with lime green and purple
but think they really sing when paired with an all neutral ensemble.
I like the layers of black on black and think the varying textures give my monochromatic top-half some added visual interest and sophistication. A.
