Fashion Friday, Week 1

Let me preface this with this statement: I just like fashion; fashion should be fun. Ever since I was little, I’ve always loved clothes. The semester has begun, and I think I’m going to attempt the challenge of a “no repeat” semester. Now, this doesn’t mean you can’t wear the same thing, it just means…

A Little Fashion Friday

Next week, it’s back to campus, and back to being a little more professionally dressed than wearing leggings and jeans every day. It’s been a comfortable month, but I am always excited to see my students’ faces and be back in the classroom with them–and to have a reason to wear some of my new…

FROCKTOBER – WEEK 4 And Some Words of Wisdom to Be Kind to Yourself

As FROCKTOBER comes to a close this week, I’m hoping 3 things come from it: 1-That I helped raise some money and awareness for ovarian cancer research; 2-That my Instagram photos–as stressful as they were for me to pick outfits and to take sometimes–didn’t bore you too much, and, 3-That you take away that you…

FROCKTOBER Fashion- Week 3 Recap

For the better part of this week, I was sick with a bad head cold, and yet, I made it to all of my classes and meetings. I don’t like to disappoint my students and will show up unless I have a fever or have flu-like symptoms. That’s my game plan. It was a busy…

FROCKTOBER Week 2 for Ovarian Cancer

I’ve been hit with a pretty miserable cold this week, but I powered through, so I didn’t get to post last week’s outfits on Sunday. I’m coming out of the illness now–the change of season always gets to me–and I’m sharing what I wore for Week 2 of Frocktober. Thank you to those of you…

Week One Recap: FROCKTOBER 2018

WELCOME TO FROCKTOBER FOR OVARIAN CANCER This month is all about fashion–but it’s also to raise money and heighten awareness of Ovarian Cancer. As my beloved colleague and friend, Chris Noya, fights her battle, I will do my part to make this month meaningful. I’m looking forward to the challenge of posting 31 outfits in…

Welcome To #FROCKTOBER: What It’s All About

​​ ​​​ ​ Today is the first day of #FROCKTOBER. FROCKTOBER | Day 1 “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson This month is all…

Friday Fashion: The Commitment to Add More Color to My Wardrobe

*** Writers wear black. Lots of it. It’s kind of funny, actually, that as a lot, we’ve sort of taken this color and decided to claim it as our own. I’m not sure how this got started, perhaps because as a group we’re sort of identified as a deep-thinking with a dark side. But I…

Fashion & Fiction: Why I NEED Some Bumble Bee Tights. Now.

I open my closet. It’s a sea of black clothing. Black pants. Black tops. Black skirts. Black dresses. Even black jeans. I wonder what in the hell I’m doing wearing black all the time. I know I’m a writer, and writers love to wear black, but this is getting absurd. I have to fight to…

Wednesday Wardrobe – The Floral Maxi Dress

I’m getting spring fever, you guys. I want to wear pretty things that feel like summertime. I’m ready to be in flip flops, flouncy dresses, big hats, and sunglasses. So today, I’m featuring a dress from Express that I got at a consignment store–in perfect condition. There’s a lot to be said for quality consignment…

The Petite Professor -Wednesday Wardrobe

I think we are all yearning for spring at this point. Although Maryland is technically below the Mason-Dixon line, I can tell you having lived here my entire life, that spring really doesn’t get going until late April, if we’re lucky. So in this neck of the woods, we are still wearing warmer clothes, though…
