Weekly Capsule 34.3: Schoolmarm/girl

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.

    I don’t think you dress like a school marm! You dress cute and everything you wear is super flattering. Congrats on your first solo class. Can’t wait to hear more about it.

    I think that you look great Salazar. Very professional as any professor should look when they are teaching. Glad to hear again that your first solo class went well. I knew that you would be okay. Hope to hear more about your teaching adventures in the near future.
    And by the way, I love your reply to that lady. Nice way to smooth it over without actually lying. 🙂

  4. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Great look!
