Today's outfit is all about comfort. Tank top, spa pants (kind of like lightweight cargo sweat pants....sooo comfy), sparkly flip-flops. Something not all that dissimilar from what our students might wear.
So far today, while running around campus, I've run into colleagues and former students, and chatted with both.
While walking back to my office, I had the following panic-inducing thoughts:
* Am I dressing too young?
* Is dressing too young worse than, say, a man wearing black socks and dress shoes with shorts? Or wearing socks with sandals (my big fashion pet peeve)?
* Do my colleagues think I'm pathetic for dressing like a student?
* Do my students think I'm pathetic for dressing like them?
* If I'm not seen as pathetic now, at what point will dressing like a student brand me as pathetic, and will I be able to tell when I've crossed that line?
