First Day of School

I'm sooooooo glad school's started again. Weird, I know, but I get restless and irritated when my schedule isn't set - it's much easier when I know that I have class and office hours from 9:30 - 4:30. I get so much more done!

This is what I wore. I try to keep the first day of school pretty simple, since first impressions are so important. I want to be cute, but I also don't want to be "the crazy English teacher." I also want to be professional so that my students won't think that they can walk all over me (I set them straight pretty much immediately, but I'm young, so it happens).

My Wardrobe is My Own Again!

So, this is the first outfit that I wore after my 30 x 30 challenge was over (yes, it was like, a month ago. I'm sorry, I'm behind. Deal with it.).

I got this shirt and these shoes the day the challenge ended (I know, I'm horrible), and I love them both! Oh, and I got a haircut. Like it?

Guest Post

So, I'm guest posting over at Erin's blog, Moms Have Style, Too! She's moving across country and threw herself at the mercy of we other bloggers, so I decided to help out. Go check it out!

At Last (Over a Month Late) – Day 30

First, I swear that I washed these two items before I wore them again. Second – I’M DONE!!! YAY! Granted, I’ve been done with the 30 x 30 for over a month, but I’m glad that I can start blogging about other pieces of clothing, especially ones that I’ve gotten since then (hello, $7 J. Crew Matchstick Jeans from Change Clothes).

Mischief Managed (finally)!

Once again, I’m interrupting the 30 x 30 to bring you all an important announcement: I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, and it was awesome. I actually saw it on July 16, the day before my 30 x 30 ended, which is why I’ve waited until now to post what I wore.

Nearly Missed It - Day 29

So, I just realized that I never wore this floral skirt during the 30 for 30. I don’t know why – I love it! I just kept gravitating towards the green one for some reason. Sigh.

Slightly Sophisticated - Day 28

Yes, I know you just saw this dress, but that was boho – this version is a bit more sophisticated, I think.

Oh, and it’s clean, I promise (crosses fingers).

Brilliance - Day 27

Recognize my skirt? I’ve got a confession to make (that you might have guessed already) – it’s a dress. This dress, as a matter of fact.

I was trying to figure out a new way to wear it ( which was surprisingly hard) because I felt like I was getting into a rut: I either wear dresses with cardigans or as skirts under shirts. I wanted to turn this one into a skirt, but didn’t want to use either of those methods, and then…BRILLIANCE STRUCK!

Sunny, With a Chance of Fog - Day 26

 It’s so hot and humid here in Louisiana that the camera lens fogged up, but I like this picture so I’m posting it anyway. I think it makes the light look cool.

Lady-like - Day 25

 I felt very lady-like in this outfit, even though the back of my dress was unzipped all day again. I'm pretty good at pretending, even to myself.

Personal Wind Machine - Day 24

It never fails. The sky gets dark and the wind starts blowing like crazy when I try to take blog pictures. It also does that when I plan a pool party or a day at the beach. It's official - the weather hates me. Either that, or I'm like that guy in that Douglas Adams book that rain clouds love and follow around all day. Sigh.
