Hello and happy Wednesday! I took off from posting yesterday and I am taking off on Thursday, too. Come back Friday for favorites!
Here are some recent outfits – some are out of order!
I was so happy to wear some normal clothes last Friday. I incorporated a school color (maroon) with my denim skirt and kimono. Two weeks of spirit is just too much spirit – whew!
Thursday was Generations Day – Seniors were senior citizens, juniors were working professionals, sophomores were kids, and freshmen were babies. Teachers decided to dress for retirement life. I debated doing a beach/travel look, but at the last minute I decided to be a trophy wife.
This would almost be an outfit I would wear – I would probably wear booties instead.
And, for my lewk I added a Starbucks cup, bee sunglasses, and a trophy. Yes, the trophy does say second place, but I was hoping no one would notice! Erica even had a bluetooth speaker playing Jimmy Buffet all day. We had a little too much fun with it!
The other spirit days were Mismatch, Holiday Day, Dress like a Teacher Day, and Character Day. They did some really creative themes this year. I think this helps toward building community in our schools again. It all may seem a bit silly but this is the stuff that kids remember and it ends up being these little things that are such a huge part of American high school life, if that makes sense.
Saturday I repeated the outfit below when Mason and I went to the outdoor flea market. Boy, have I gotten my money’s worth from some of my blouses, my gold clogs, my jeans, and my cross body purse! I love it when that happens. I want to feel that I make good fashion purchases!
Sunday I wore black leggings, my black New Balance, and this chambray popover with my new small black purse and Gucci-esque strap. Super easy to throw on!
Monday for school it was raining and storming and I always wear black when it rains. I wore my Tieks, my trusty Chicos pants, and my Umgee kimono. This black high necked and the maroon high necked are new Target purchases to wear under things. I don’t get so hot when I have a sleeveless top under a cardigan or kimono.
And, finally I wore these Hue leggings/jeggings that I bought at a consignment store, cognac Jack Rogers booties, my other most worn fall blouse, and an old Target lightweight cardigan.
Do you have a favorite outfit? I will be honest in that sometimes I use school as a training ground to see if I like an outfit and would wear it out in my “real life”. Ha! That is silly since I mainly go to school! Do you do that, too?
What have you been wearing lately? I would love to know!
