13 June 2011 - Fac Meetings


  • Tank: J. Crew
  • Cardigan: Banana Republic
  • Necklace: South Moon Under
  • Shorts: BR Outlet
  • Shoes: BR

I wore this to our last day of faculty meetings on Friday, and now that those are done, my grades are in, and my comments are written, I’m not totally sure what to do with myself. Being a boarding school teacher is a funny life because you’re 24/7 for 9 months, and then when the kids leave, there is this big hole left behind. Not that I don’t have hundreds of hours of sleep to catch up on and hundreds of books I’d like to read this summer… and at least a dozen that I have to read… but I miss the students and I miss being in my classroom everyday. Talking to grown-ups all the time is not nearly as fun as talking to 14, 15 and 16 year olds. Especially when talking to grown-ups means faculty meetings and trustee retreats!

Bow detail Olive Banana Republic Flats

About the outfit, it’s pretty neutral: navy, mustard, putty, and my favorite olive studded flats. In summer (and fall, and winter, and spring) I especially like to wear bright colors, so this is a very subtle palette for me. Maybe I was thinking that I’d blend in to the surroundings at the faculty meeting? Either way, this outfit does get me thinking about our up coming Dress Your Best weeks (starting next Monday!) because it showcases something I’m very proud of: my muscular legs. Start thinking about what you’ll be showing off!

    I love this top! The color is so beautiful, and the fabric looks just perfect for summer! I wonder, will you be staying at the school during the summer months or heading to a special place until the fall?

  2. Congratulations on being finished for the year! I also had trouble transitioning between super busy and summer vacation when I was teaching high school, but I hope you can enjoy catching up on sleep, reading, and socializing with other adults!

      Ha! Yes, I forgot to mention that I DO enjoy socializing with other adults as long as it is in the context of a relaxing evening out or a summer excursion rather than endless meetings.

    Happy summer! I hope you have some good time to relax and rejuvenate for next year.

    Love the mustard colour with your hair (and am jealous of your legs!). I wonder if the shorts and top look a bit boxy without the grey top? Looks like two stacked squares to me, but it’s probably partly the pose and you can rock it anyway. :)

    I love this outfit on you. Nice length to the shorts, and its nice and simple.

  6. Rachel says:

    I really really like this outfit! Everything goes so well together. It’s really perfect casual chic. Have a great summer! Sounds like it’ll be a good break as well to catch up on some alone time and leisure activities :) People are very much creatures of habit I think so it feels really strange to be doing something so different even if you know it’s well-needed.
