Clever Girl

Leather and leopard…what’s not to love? This is a dress that I've layered a loose fitting t-shirt over in order to wear as a skirt. Aren't I a clever one?

In other news, I got my teaching assistant assignment for this coming fall (I start teaching my own junior seminar in January)…Introduction to Ancient Greek History. Now I know a little something about Classical history, I’ve even TAed such a class before while I was earning my MA…of course that was like 8 years ago, but not that much. So it’s going to be a trip. A fun one though.

Nice, leather jackets are great! ^^

Isabel said...

congrats on the new teaching job!

Miss B said...

I agree it's a great combo, but what I really love are the knee high socks and flats. I've been too chicken to try such a thing but I like that they are the same color. It makes it different but safe!
Ancient Greek History...sounds fun!

Emma said...

Perfect combo! I Really Love that dress!

I do love the abundance of leopard in your closet, and this dress is a nice one, a bit more abstract.

Love this edgy look! And dresses that can be converted to skirts are absolutely the best. So much more versatile.

Good luck with your teaching project, looking very nice here, but you know I adore leopard. Purple and leopard is simply amazing as I love the shade and the print...will we ever get tired of the animal theme? i don't think soooooo ;)

Sounds like an exciting and fun 'trip' that you are about to get in .... Good for you :)

great look.

Luxembourg said...

This is definitely a topic that closes to me so I’m happy that you wrote about it. I’m also happy that you did the subject some justice. Not only do you know a great deal about it, you know how to present in a way that people will want to read more. I’m so happy to know someone like you exists on the web

I like that the leopard print is black and grey. It is a nice twist.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i like your quizzical face and that cute jacket. maybe by teaching your students ancient greek it will remind you of everything you learned 8 years ago! :)

Marie a la Mode said...

I love the jacket! It's a classic wardrobe staple you'll keep forever. (I love clothing like that!)

Claire said...

love the leopard and leather. i actually attempted to wear leather shorts the other day and got really sweaty so i had to change immediately. but you look great. and you are definitely clever...and not only for your clothes!

thank you so much for the comment :)
we'll follow your blog.. is ver cute :)

Pamela said...

What a spot on quizzical face. I must practice my own in the mirror now. Excuse me ...

Alex said...

that jacket fits you perfectly, and I do commend thee on your clever layering to make a dress a skirt. also, I'm wearing (what I believe to be) the same Target flats as you are in these pictures, ah little coincidences make my freaking day! also, how fun you get to TA for such an interesting class! that sounds like a class students might actually want to attend, unlike what I might have TA'd for (uhh, organic chemistry, ick) but I dodged that bullet and didn't end up having to TA my first year in grad school, woooo hooooo!

Elle Sees said...

i need more leopard in my life! love this.

hurricanekerrie said...

Leather and leopard... I love indeed. I think I'll try that combo this weekend. :) This outfit is rockin!

Love how you wore the dress as a skirt, it's such a fun and easy way to revamp your wardrobe a bit by creating more styles with what you own!
