Weekly Capsule 34.3: Schoolmarm/girlPosted: August 27, 2015 | |
This is what I wore for my first solo class this semester (I have been teaching several classes but always in conjunction with older professors; this is the first time I’m on my own). Considering I dress like a schoolmarm most of the time, it didn’t take me long to put this together. My only qualm is that it might look “schoolgirl” instead of schoolmarm with the white button-up and navy skirt, but then I saw this outfit featuring the exact same skirt, and I thought I’d be fine. The class went well (I showed a collection of Pixar short films, which I always do with every beginners’ class), everything was good.
Then, after class, I went to my sister’s place for lunch, and as I got into the elevator, a very nice old lady turned to me and asked “What grade are you in?”
I was tempted to tell her I was in high school, but my poker face is not good enough. So I told her I was in college instead. Which is not a lie. Technically.
