Rounding Out

Wednesday morning I went to the dentist for a routine 6 month check-up.  I am happy to report that I got a clean bill of health and my dental hygienist said everything was looking good.  I am always super happy to hear that.  I think that my New Year’s resolution of brushing my teeth nightly before bed is working out the way that I had hoped!

After the dentist, I made a quick stop at JC Penney.  My JCP has a Sephora inside and I wanted to look for a pencil brush and anything that I couldn’t live without.  I didn’t find anything in Sephora, but I did find a navy and white striped shirt that I have been hunting for for a very long time.  I think every woman needs a navy striped and a gingham shirt!

Because I had to get up early and go to the dentist I came home and took a nap in the afternoon.  Since we are just returning from Spring Break my prep work is light this week.  Next week they have a big assignment due so I will be buried under tons of papers to grade.

My outfit was based on this pin here.  I love the combination of the plaid button-up shirt and pencil skirt!  In the original photo, she is wearing a blue plaid shirt and a red pencil skirt accented with a navy infinity scarf and a tan and gold belt.  I have a blue plaid button-up, but I don’t have a red pencil skirt so I flipped the color scheme to work with items I own: a red plaid shirt and a navy pencil skirt.  I tried to keep the feel of the outfit the same and ground it with a khaki and gold belt and nude pumps.  I really liked the sexy/feminine lumberjack vibe of this outfit.

On Thursday, I wore a dress that was a contender for St. Patrick’s Day.  I didn’t wear it on Tuesday because I was at a loss for ways to style it differently and I think that it’s too short.  It’s not too short when I am standing still, but when I move around or raise my arms to write on the board it creeps up to an uncomfortable length.  I am always nervous and worried that I am showing more than I want to be.  I think that it’s time to take it out of the rotation, OR I have to layer it over a slip that would peek out at the bottom and add some length.

I have worn this dress a number of ways in the past: with a navy blazer and brown tights, with a green cardigan and brown tights, with a navy cardigan and navy tights, with a khaki blazer and brown boots, and a cream cardigan.  But, I’ve almost always worn it with a dark tight.  So, t his time I wanted to try to lighten it up a bit for Spring and I went with nude legs and pumps.  Although, truth be told that I switched to brown flats after I took the photo’s to help with the length issue.

That’s how I rounded out the week with outfits.  Do you have any big plans for the weekend?  So far, my husband and I have cleaned the house, I work tonight at the bar, and tomorrow we are hosting my in-laws over to look at photo’s and hang out.
