This is a big old suitcase that I packed full of clothes for the fall. I'll be teaching every week day and so need to prepare "teaching-appropriate outfits" for each day. In my case teaching-appropriate means: a bit more formal than my everyday clothes, comfortable and either warm or cool enough depending on the temperature in the office building...the secret to this kind of dressing is layers...shoes will be important too because on some days I would like to walk to the office. The walk is between 20 and 25 minutes, depending on one's pace--I will need comfy walking shoes, because I'll be schlepping textbooks etc back and forth. I'll probably keep dressier shoes in my office and just change into them, like they used to do in the 80's..There is a free bus service that runs almost door-to-door so that will be an option too. Mieze cannot resist a suitcase and had to give this one a try!!
