What I Wore: Woeful Saturday

I wanted to call this “Professorial Boho” because, in my head, all professors wear tweed, all the time. It just comes with the territory, doesn’t it? (Along with elbow patches, tortoiseshell rim glasses, and black turtlenecks. It is known.) But I am willing to concede that this might not, in fact, be the case aaaaalways and rather than confuse you, I changed the title. Which is really neither here nor there. Ahem.

This was not the outfit I had in mind when I started getting dressed, but I really liked how it turned out. I’m a big fan of the cut of this J. Crew Factory blazer, which manages to fit my chest without making me look like a rectangular box. That’s nice, isn’t it? Of course, I ended up being over-dressed for the occasion (a Saturday morning outing with the family, which quickly turned into a tragi-comedy of mishaps and minor meltdowns – so, only slightly more woeful than a regular Saturday chez nous), but as I always say: when the going gets tough, the tough dress up like they have somewhere better to go.

I swear that sweater looked clean when I picked it off the closet floor, and I don’t recall doing an impromptu army crawl through a dust pit that day. Hmmm …

3 Comments on Boho Tweed

  1. I like the entire outfit. Tweed is one of my favourite fabrics.. I’m a sucker for it in all its forms.

    Also, you call that dressed up? *eep*.. that’s how I dress all the time although as of late I can’t fit into anything that has been tailored, so I’ve been relegated to looser dresses and wrap dresses for the time being.

    • Well, it’s dressed up for my current SAHM life. It would be on the casual side for my office. I’m not sure if I’d even wear it to work …

  2. You look good! The blazer is really nice. There’s nothing like a nice blazer to tie an outfit together. I have a blazer that has elbow patches on it which is my “professorial” blazer. 🙂
