Today I am linking up with Kellyann and friends for The Style Six. What a great idea! I don’t see many fashion link ups these days and i think they are really fun and always give me new ideas to wear what is already in my closet.
I don’t want to forget to mention the significance of today, however. 9/11 is a date that we will always and should always remember. I was teaching when my principal made the announcement about the twin towers around 9:10 am. It is really hard to be calm when you are the one in charge. My teen students were fearful and scared and we didn’t do anything that day but watch the news. Many parents came to pick up their children. This was before I had kids of my own. It is a day I will never forget.
And, this is my Dad’s birthday. He passed away last December. I saw an explanation about grief saying that it is not lineal – meaning that you will experience bad days and it isn’t a steady progression of healing, necessarily. Today will be sad for my family and I. My boys’ birthday was sad to me because of my Dad not getting to see them reach 17 and I know their graduation will be hard, too.
There is no smooth way to transition into fashion now, so here goes…
Typical teaching outfit – Matilda Jane green pants, Old Navy blouse, consignment Banana Republic cardigan, Target Universal Thread shoes.
Forgot to get full outfit, but black pants, black blouse, fun necklace and earrings and a yellow cardigan.
Capri leggings and poncho for a Friday outfit.
$18 consignment find – transition booties. They have cut outs so I won’t wear them into winter.
They are by a brand called “Rebel” and I looked at some of their stuff on the website and they are pretty unique. I think these are cool but also a little 18th century style!
I think this is a hard time to dress! The weather is still very warm but I want all the fall!
I did put all of my white away. I also put away anything that looks super summery; I’ve just worn it all to death and it’s time for a change!
What are you wearing lately?
