School doesn’t officially start until next week, but I’ve already been teaching for two weeks now at an amateur film making workshop. Since the students are of all ages (the oldest I’ve had is middle-aged, the youngest is 15) and the atmosphere is much more relaxed than a usual class with college-aged students, I tend to dress much more casually than I normally do – like this, for example. And yet, despite that, I’ve never been mistaken for a student like I have at school. Weird, right?

Also, I’m very proud that this week I managed to mix and match just 6 items. I know I’ve promised not to pay too much attention to the numbers anymore, but I’d like to keep the number of items in a weekly capsule under 8 if I can. Anyway, here are my looks this week:
This outfit is like something I would wear a year and a half ago, while I was transitioning between a vintage-inspired style to my current, simpler style. Even all the pieces – except for the brooch – are old favorites. This was from last week, when I had to teach a kind of “test class” in front of the school board to prepare for my solo classes next semester, so I wanted to wear something I’d feel comfortable in. It was nerve-racking enough having to teach in front of the school board; I didn’t want to have to worry about my clothes too.
