Amazon Hits and Misses

Happy Monday always seems a little contradictory and fake, doesn’t it? Nobody actually seems very happy about Monday, especially when you’ve had a great weekend. I only went to school for a day and a half last week due to Labor Day and Hurricane Dorian (which luckily only gave us some rain and wind), so today is going to be super rough for me.

So to make Monday a little less meh, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces from Amazon. At least cute outfits can make Monday a little more bearable.

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion

Y’all, it’s September, which means it’s almost time for one of my favorite music events! My hometown of Bristol (I’m from the Virginia side, but if you’ve seen the Geico commercial, there’s also Bristol, Tennessee…if you stand in the middle of our main street, you can have one foot in Virginia and one foot in Tennessee!) is the Birthplace of Country Music (nope, it’s not Nashville!) and hosts the Rhythm & Roots Reunion festival every year.

Review: Cocktails in a Can

I know a lot of people are ready for pumpkin spice everything, but summer technically isn’t over yet. And while I’m absolutely ready for some temperatures that start with anything but a 9, I’m not quite ready to put my shorts and tanks away.

Currently Loving: My Favorite Activewear Tops

I haven’t been working out very much lately. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll totally complain about my muffin top, but I haven’t been doing too much about it. Despite that sad fact, I lived in activewear and what I call “bum around” clothes all the time. I’d like to say that I just wear it during the summer and on weekends, but as soon as I get home from work, bring on that athleisure!

Stylin’ It Up at Work


No secrets here! This post may contain affiliate links that provide me with a small commission at absolutely no cost to you! Thank you so much for supporting Biscotti and a Ph.D.!

English professors have a pretty bad reputation for being on the opposite end of the style spectrum. I’ll never forget taking one of my best friends to a conference and her first comment being, “I’ve never seen so many clogs in one place.”

Joke’s on her because mules are in now 😜

But seriously, she wasn’t wrong. I try really hard to combat the frumpy, “out-there” English professor stereotype, and I think a lot of students are often surprised when I walk in on the first day (one student recently admitted that when I walked up to the podium on the first day of class she was thinking, “who is this girl who thinks she’s about to lead the class?” I love it and dread the day that people stop mistaking me for a student).
