Today is the first day of school! I am linking up with The Stylish Six here. Today’s post is short and sweet.
So, I have moved most of my shorts to a higher shelf now because I won’t be wearing them as much. I will probably only wear my denim cut offs and of course, I wear my lounge and exercise shorts year round. My biker shorts with pockets on both sides are my clear favorites so I will mostly be wearing those!
Friday night for the play in the park, I wore my drawstring denim shorts and this Target blouse from a couple of years ago. I also wore my lace up metallic gold sandals. It was pretty hot for the play’s first half but then it cooled off. I wished I had worn a dress or light pants because my legs stuck to the bench. But, I had not been able to wear the shorts or the top comfortably last summer so I am having fun fitting back into a few things.
For boating on Saturday I wore the only suit I’ve worn this summer – the hot, hot pink Aerie tank – and I pulled out an old cover up that I love. I wore my Amazon hat from this season. The cover up was too small last year, too.
To get my hair done Saturday, I threw on one of the Walmart dresses.
I created a staging area for my school outfits. The idea is to again see how many unique outfits I can wear. After wearing something, I will hang it in a different area. I am feeling the dresses and the blouses with a skirt or pants the most right now. My swing dresses and kimonos have been worn so much that I am kind of tired of them. The building is hot right now. Last April it was a refrigerator. I’d like somewhere in between, please!
I also have printed pants in this mix. I chose to wear my fun printed pants for the teacher days Monday and Tuesday with a solid color top. Many teachers go super casual with t-shirts and jeans or denim shorts, but I still dress pretty professionally on these days.
And, I purchased a mask chain off of Amazon here. Last year, I would take it off and lay it on my desk or I would forget where I put it. I think this chain is lovely and I do have a chain this style from Kendra Scott. I think I’m going to like having this.
What have you been wearing lately? Is it time for “real clothes”?
