As I said last week, I had to sit in on the screenwriting thesis committee, so this is what I wore. At our school, the thesis defense is just a formality – the thesis is a script, which is judged by its own merits and not by how well the student defends it – but the students can still be quite nervous, so we try to keep it light and not too nerve-racking for them. Which is why I wore something simple, so it’d look like just another day in the classroom… if the classroom is actually a conference room and there are 5 teachers instead of one. Yeah, I don’t blame the students for being nervous.
This is outfit #1 of my interpretations of this week’s SIA, inspired by the botanic illustration of a Memorial Day Poppy – I was so inspired that I actually put together two different outfits for SIA! It wasn’t my intention; I already had an outfit lined up, but by a stroke of luck, I found this floral-printed tee, and its colors and graphic prints are so perfect that I had to build another outfit around it. I finished the outfit with these green pants (naturally) and strappy black sandals to echo the black-and-white butterfly in the illustration.
Outfit #2 would be posted on Wednesday, so stay tuned! And don’t forget to check Jen’s blog for other interpretations of this illustration.
My outfits are still relatively jewelry-free, but during my trip to Germany, I picked up this really cute silver pendant on sale and decided to start wearing it every day. I like the idea of having a “signature” piece of jewelry that you always wear – my mom has this delicate gold horse-shoe pendant that she always wears as far back as I can remember, so when I see that shape I always think of her – but I’m terrible about wearing jewelry, so I’m hoping that this can help me get into the habit.
Of course, a cow may not be as classic as a horse-shoe, but it’s more “me” 🙂
