The semester is over and all the grades have been submitted. I am officially on vacation, which is fantastic. What usually happens then though is that I put a lot less effort into my wardrobe since I am at home, doing errands, spring-cleaning the house (speak: purging), some research, some prep work for my 7 week online summer class (which starts in July) and for fall, etc.

A lot of clothes I always "save" for my teaching only and therefore they get very little wear during those warmer months. Thus my resolution to make an effort to continue using my wardrobe more creatively even in the months without much of a real-life "audience", to rotate my clothes more and to bring out also the more neglected items.

#1: What I wore to the Commencement and reception on Saturday (a week ago). I bought this flowy blouse at Gap back in March and had not worn it yet. I got lucky: I saw it on clearance for $30.00, but spotted a stain on one upper sleeve. I asked and they gave it to me at 50% off, however I wouldn't be able to return it. The stain came out without a problem.
#2: for Aida (these are the nude micro-weave Vera Wang tights I had mentioned in your post).
#3: Stompy leg outfit par excellence! I get it, the picture speaks volumes and I promise that I won't wear this again in this composition. Worn to an Indian restaurant (my daughter's choice for her 14th birthday).
#4-9: Errands (some on foot, some on bike, many in car) and one meeting. Oh, I nearly forgot: I also went to two movie matinées, I needed to catch two foreign films before they disappeared for good: "Potiche," a light-hearted comedy with Catherine Deneuve and "Of Gods and Men/Des hommes et des dieux," an absolutely brilliant film.
#6: my new Fossil flats, love them.
#9: The first time this year that I went out in short sleeves, without jacket/cardigan. It was finally warm enough!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!
