OOTD: Outfit for a Meeting

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday, I had a meeting on-campus that I had to go to, so I used it as an excuse to wear something post-worthy! It was a pretty straight-forward meeting... Every year, there's a new graduate chair assigned for the department, and all the PhD students are called in as a group to meet with them and address any concerns. Nothing major... It was a good opportunity to get together with a bunch of my PhD friends though!

During your first year in the program, you complete your course work and meet other 1st year PhD students in the department. In your second year, you start reading for your comprehensive exams and work independently. You often end up teaching on a team with other PhD students, though, so you get to interact with them that way. By third year, you are working on your dissertation and teaching independently, so you are fairly isolated... It was nice to get back together with them, and we ended up at the grad pub for a few beers after the meeting. I had lots of fun!

What a unique thrift store find! You gotta seize any little occasion for dressing up a bit, even if academics students aren't always the most fashion-forward audience.
