This Friday one of my colleague defended her thesis. In Sweden this is a public event, and colleagues, friends, and family usually attend. It is custom that you dress up at a thesis defense, and it is not directly something I dread. For this defense I wore my Esprit dress that I bought early in the autumn. You have not seen the dress here at the blog before since I have been struggling with how to style it. But, my long black cardigan tied together with a black belt and my black boots created a harmony that I was satisfied with. A pretty relaxed dressed up outfit, but as I have said before, we are not very formal in my part of academia. As long as you clothes are nice and clean pretty much everything is ok. But of course, I can’t resist a chance to wear a dress with a shiny fabric!
