As the heat wave continues, I've detected some of my friends' summer uniforms:
Zella: light-colored linen jacket, collarless silk or cotton blouse, dark cotton or linen skirt. Zella keeps two scoop-y silk tanks in a little bag in her bottom desk drawer for going out right from the office.
Pat: set free from the classroom, Pat dives into loud zany prints and big hats.
Me: getting a lot of use out of lightweight long cotton skirts so far this summer. And madras pants. OK, my uniform hasn't settled in yet. I guess I'll just, um, blend in.
