Well-Heeled

Monday morning the weather was absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to take advantage of it.  I picked a faux wrap-dress that I had styled with a royal blue blazer.  Because the weather was in the upper 80’s I knew I didn’t need the blazer.  I thought about wearing red ballet flats for a pop of color but I’ve done that before and I wanted to try something different.  In the end, I let my layering tank dictate my shoe choice.  I needed something under the dress to keep it professional and modest.  I decided to go with a burgundy layering cami because it is a great Fall color.  That led me to choose my burgundy peep toe heels.  I almost never go without pantyhose but on such a warm day I did opt to skip them.

I went with my oversized gold watch and reddish colored statement earrings.  For my makeup I chose a bronze eye look and a matte burgundy lip color.  I thought that the outfit was simple but effective.  In the end, I just couldn’t bring myself to wear the heels and I went with black ballet flats, instead.  I didn’t even mind that the silver medallion didn’t match my gold-toned jewelry.

We are in week 5 of classes and things are starting to ramp up for me and my students.  I am sad to say that I don’t think some of them were ready for the acceleration.  Additionally, I am in week 25 of my pregnancy.  My students are starting to figure out that I am in fact pregnant and ask questions about when I’m due and what I’m having.  Hopefully once we get over this hump it will be a fun semester.
