I had already scheduled yesterday’s post when I heard about the Uvalde tragedy. The irony of me writing about summer activities with your kids when that was just taken away from so many parents…
I really don’t know what to say other than what we are doing is not working. Columbine happened about five years into my teaching career and it was and is still is beyond belief. I remember watching Sandy Hook coverage right before Christmas and just crying and crying. I first saw the news come on in the nail salon as I was getting a holiday pedicure I believe and I thought about leaving because it didn’t feel right anymore.
A few years later, we had to start doing active shooter drills in my school. A few years after that, we were told to keep a heavy piece of furniture next to our door so we could push it in front if need be. Say what?
The solution is not just one thing and it’s not simple.
I had a shopping ban from the end of Spring Break until about mid-May. I was trying to wait until summer but I let myself get something if I neeeded it or if I found something I just loved. I have very few dresses so I have been trying to add a few to my wardrobe. This jumped out at me on the Target website. The pattern! Pockets!
By the way, I am using my new phone on an old tripod and I feel like the clarity of my photos is really bad. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Any ideas?
This next outfit is kinda blah. I just wanted to wear a new consignment blouse I found. It still had tags from a local boutique called Lulubelle’s. I got it from my favorite consignment shop Sassy Fox when I went to check on my items I took to them over Spring Break. I made $140! I was really happy to put some of that back into some new clothes.
I want to try it with white jeans. It is a little bit long and might be worth it for me to have it professionally hemmed.
This is my new Old Navy dress. I fell in love with the pattern and the quality is amazing. It seriously seems like something much more expensive. It is fully lined. Someone I follow online said they cut the lining out. The lining makes it quite heavy but I am a bit scared to try that. It has pockets, too!
I wore this again for our Senior Walk where we say goodbye to our seniors. It is Walmart.com Scoop brand and you have seen it here before.
And, lastly, I wore…
jeans and my tropical blouse.
What have you been wearing lately?
