Today was graduation day. Usually it is approximately 1 million degrees and you hope to be wearing a bikini (or less) under your academic regalia. I dressed in that spirit--loose dress, cardigan that I could leave in the car, open toed shoes so my feet wouldn't sweat.
Reader, it was 57 degrees out there. I thought my toes were going to fall off. Also, it rained throughout the entire 3 hour long ceremony. I smelled like a wet sheep by the time it was over (the robe is wool with some purple velvet and red and blue satin on the hood, oh and a purple puffy hat for good measure). I have no idea why they decided to have it outside, except perhaps they figured killing half the faculty via pneumonia would be a cost-saving measure? Only the strong survive!
Obviously my hair looked this straight and shiny for approximately 4 minutes. One of my debaters, while hugging me immediately after receiving his diploma, noted I looked like a wet dog. In fairness, I likely smelled like one too.

This is what I wore to a graduation party last night. Sorry for the goofy face, it had been a long day.
