School Days

It’s still a little warm here in Richmond. 91ºF today. But back-to-school thoughts are swirling around my head. And they always take on the colours of fall. In my imagination, there is always a bit of a crispness to the air, too. What will you wear when you return to the hallowed, ivy-covered professors in ivy-covered halls? Here are a few ideas, though not necessarily to be worn together.

You’ll need a jacket for those days when the mercury dips into the 60’s as you walk to class. I’d make it one of these. Especially since it’s on sale now.

Not hefty enough for your climes? How about adding a quilted jacket to the wardrobe? I’m partial to red, but the classic green would work beautifully, too.

Jeans are ubiquitous on campus. Moleskin trousers are not. (Mine are finished with a small v-shaped cut at the ankle which looks well with my chelsea boots.)

Will you stand out from your denim clad classmates? Oh yes. In a very good way.
