What I wore to freshman orientation

I just want to reiterate my thanks to those of you who contacted me with kind congratulations about my defense! I think I'm still processing that this chapter of my life is finished. I don't want to get too comfortable because I need to stay on pace to submit a book proposal this fall.

Anyway, I mentioned a backlog of outfits and the above is one of them. During the summer, faculty representatives on my campus attend orientation events for incoming students so that students and parents can begin to make connections with the campus community. On this particular day, I was there to represent the major and offer advice regarding the curriculum and a first semester schedule.

I met some lovely students that I hope to have in my classes this school year! And I wore a button front, cotton Anthropologie dress that allowed me to stay cool as I ran from building to building and  easily pump in between meetings.

Kors watch

MBMJ Mouse flats

I know I keep saying this but I swear I am posting the giveaway tomorrow. It is ready to go. I just have been dotting i's and crossing t's and running a million errands to wrap up my doctorate.
