About

Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!

Basics:

After years of virtually living in yoga pants as a grad student, I woke up one morning and had a divine revelation ... 



In all its glory: 




So I started this blog is a way to force myself to consistently dress like an employable adult. Also, to have something to show for the hours I waste online. And because I thought documenting what I wore might be some novel thing no one had ever done before. By the time I found out otherwise, I had my own url, a tripod and one of those shutter clicky things, so I decided to just roll with it. 

What you'll find here are affordable outfits that I wear to teach and work at a large, research university. (And occasionally day drink on patios.) Although graduate stipends are deplorable, my goal is to build a versatile, remixable wardrobe with classic pieces mixed in with thrifted, DIY and occasionally budget-friendly big box store items.


Me (right) circa 1988. Some items of clothing should never be remixed.  

I don't always nail academic fashion, and teaching in the laid-back Southwest where students occasionally show up to afternoon classes in swimsuits and smelling like Coors Light, I don't always feel the pressure to.  So take any ideas that you like, and feel free to tell me about the ones you hate. As a fourth-year PhD student in the middle of their comprehensive exams, I also reserve the right to relapse into yoga wear without notice. 

And thank you for reading!  I'm genuinely flattered and honored when people take the time to visit, and I love receiving comments and feedback. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line here on the blog or at dofgstyle@gmail.com.


THE END.

    1. I Aurelie! Thank you for reading and for saying "hi"! I'm super lazy, too, but the people and landscapes were so amazing that I temporarily forgot how much I hate hiking. ;) I lived in a few different cities - Santander on the northern coast, Madrid and Alcalá de Henares. I'm actually headed to Franch (Paris and Le Mans) in late December this year and I can't wait!
