D Day

 
It was deadline day in college today (Friday).
Those students who want to go to Oxbridge or study veterinary science, medicine or dentistry had to get their UCAS forms into college so that we can get them checked and references written in time.
 
I saw so many worried teenagers today I wanted to give them all a hug.
 
Instead I had to look professional, calm and controlled.
 
Their future was (partly) in my hands and I had to reassure them that all would be well.
 
The universities would be lucky to have them; they are all wonderful students.
 
Finger's crossed.
 
I wore:
Boots - Whistles
Skirt - Banana Republic
Top - H & M
Scarf - Next
Jacket - Zara

  4. Your outfit is very professional. Grey is a wonderful color on you. You styled it perfectly.
    I think its great that you recognize how critical your role is in guiding your students to their futures. So many counselors/advisors just go through the motions. Your students are lucky to have you.

  7. This is a very professional look on you, I'm sure that it gives the students confidence to have someone so "together" advising and encouraging them.

  9. Look professional you did. You also looked like someone you can talk to. Which I guess is quite important. Love the outfit.
