Red October

I have been so terrible about updating daily recently, I thought I'd catch up by sharing two recent outfits featuring one of my closet MVPs, my red sweater:

 Dress: In Roads, Agora; Sweater: Faded Glory; Sandals: Miss Trish of Capri.
These photos by Jeremiah.

I wore this recently to a football game tailgate on campus, and Jeremiah took some photos right outside my old dorm (which was previously featured here). I'm a huge fan of wearing this dress to football games -- it's pretty airy for when it gets way too humid outside. I feel like I look a little awkward in these photos because I was facing a field of thousands of people tailgating, barbequing, and playing frisbee. I'm so used to my quiet dock and forests, so anytime I'm near large groups of people for photos, I get a little frazzled. 

Dress: French Connection; Sweater: Faded Glory; 
Shoes: Zigi Soho; Necklace: from a tiny shop in Gatlinburg, Tenn.

You've seen this outfit before because variations of it have worked into my blog posts every season -- see here. I usually like remixing items so that I don't repeat outfits, but lately I've been reverting to old favorites because I know they will work for my office and school environments.

I made a sartorial resolution at the beginning of the school year that I would never, ever wear sweatpants, t-shirts or any sort of casual wear to class like I did during my undergraduate years, and two months in, I haven't broken my promise. I feel like in academia it seems a little vapid to worry about these appearance details, but I really believe that dressing up can have a huge effect on personal preparedness. Plus, in graduate school, it's always possible opportunities will arise right after class, so not having to worry about being appropriately dressed for a meeting, luncheon or seminar is an ideal situation.

Anyways, I've rambled too much about that. Do you ever give yourself a sartorial off day when you're at work or school, or do you always err on the side of dressing well for your situation?
