The weather is warming up nicely. It is quite hot here, and all the trees are finally green and lush.
These photos were taken in the beginning of May when it was just starting to get warmer and the trees were still bare.
I wore this when I was holding a speech for a group of biomedicine students (I studied biomedicine myself), talking about what they can expect of life as a PhD-student and giving some advice. I prepared, and was pumped up, but was met by a small group of uninterested students. Some international students that sat way back in the lecture hall even pointed at me and laughed for themselves, thinking I won't notice.
The whole experience made me realise what a hard job teachers have, that have to stand in front of students every single day!
Funny thing, this outfit was actually unintentionally inspired by a fictional teacher. As soon as I put on the blue cardi over the dress I felt like I recognised the outfit, but it wasn't until afterwards that it struck me! Jess Day from New Girl, wore a lovely green dress with a blue cardigan in the episode Fancyman Part 1 (1x17). Like I told you previously, Zooey Deschanel is a big style inspiration for me.

Anyway, my experience with holding an inspirational speech for the students didn't quite go as I had hoped or planned. The whole thing was a bit disappointing, but there was one super interested student that came and talked to me after, so even if I only reached the one person, at least I did that!
Any teachers out there? How on earth do you amazing people do it day after day?
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I had a very rough week at work, so I am doing some major relaxing.
Also a quick reminder, there are still some days left on the giveaway that I am hosting together with Book of Deer. For more info check this post here.
