The upper half this morning. A thrifted Alan Flusser tweed jacket, sweater and ocbd shirt by L.L. Bean, and a Seiko sim dress watch, which was given to me by good ol' Mom way back on my 36th birthday in the early 2000s. The necktie was a plain navy wool number.
The new semester has yet to settle down into a dull roar at the start of Week Three, but I had a few moments to sip some fresh dark roast coffee and snap these photographs this morning during office hours before my first class. The first batch of undergrad papers arrives in just two weeks. . . Jeeze Louise!
An the bottom half, featuring dark green Land's End dress cords, L.L. bean duck shoes, and yet another pair of heavy to-the-knee ski socks. I'd love to put on a pair of leather dress shoes, really I would, but the snow, slush, and salt has simply been too much. Fortunately, we already had the requisite bad winter weather footwear before leaving Central Illinois for more northerly climes.
