Guest Blogger - Beth, Part III

Please welcome Beth back for her third guest blogging installment. This time with video! I would like to say that I am saavy enough to have posted this video without blinking. Sadly, I had to email Beth to figure out how to do it. Thanks, Beth!

This has been a low week for me fashion-wise. I haven’t been really inspired to work on my outer appearance for a couple of reasons. Grading finals is incredibly time consuming, and campus is nearly deserted (seriously, it’s like a zombie apocalypse).

I got a cool new t-shirt at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this weekend so that was my one inspiration. However after seeing these pictures I think it is time to get rid of this skirt. It definitely accentuates the disproportionate hips! I won't be getting rid of this jacket anytime soon because of one story. Once I was interviewing a job candidate at a breakfast and afterward he helped me on with my jacket (EEK!). He said, "That's a little jacket for such a big girl." Ouch. He didn't get the job.

What I Wore While Pretending I Rock:

  • Black Linen Skirt: Lands’ End
  • “Prepare to Rock” tee: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
  • Denim Jacket: Gap
  • Jacket Flair: various
  • Bead Bracelets: Fair Trade store in Waukesha, WI
  • Star Bracelet: Gift from Sis
  • Black Peep Toe Wedges: Naturalizer via DSW
  • Earrings: Made by my friend Rebecca

What I Shoveled into My Mouth while Grading:

Not too bad, I made a sirloin Caesar with homemade dressing. It’s not hard, just run the ingredients through the food processor and use less oil and more spices for a healthier but tasty dressing!

Also, I had some help with appetite suppression while grading. My students in “Media and Web Delivery” had to prepare a videocast fortheir final projects. This was one that has me off fast food for quite awhile:


Maybe it's the angle of the photo, but I don't think this skirt makes your hips look disproportionate. I think you look rock and roll!

Beth - you get extra bonus points for mentioning zombies on my blog! That's two zombie references on the blog this week. :)

Janie said...

It is like a zombie apocalypse! At least you have a contingency plan!

I am digging that t-shirt a lot.

Beth said...

Tina -- I noticed that, too! We both have zombies on the brain -- better than eating our brains!

And you can see from the "artsy" angle of the picture how tough it's been to get good photos...between the dog, the kid, and the husband just holding up the camera and continuously hitting the shudder!

Janie -- it looks like you might have the bars to yourself for a bit -- Athens is deserted!

Beth - uh yeah! Love the rocker inspired wear. I'm a bass player myself so I can totally vibe with the rock t-shirt. Its way cute too. I need one. Maybe them sell them online?? It's been many years since I've been to the rock and roll hall of fame.

Beth, I don't think that the skirt makes you look out of proportion at all.

I love your rocker wear, but your dog just about steals the show. :)
