The return of the tie


 I've been wearing this 2 (out of 3) piece ensemble a lot lately, it is one of the most successful knit projects in between mother and I, to my mind. Husband's now teasing me with a German sounding nick name he thinks appropriate for a bad ass governess.

The outfit certainly seems to create some bewilderment amongst children and teens. While the time of governesses has long gone and I am too old to play the pupil, I am hoping there is still room in the collegiate frame of mind for alternative options. 
Such as that of wearing an outfit one likes, without trying to be anything. Even if it happens to include a tie.
