Green Day

Tuesday was green day!  No, not the band—- St. Patrick’s Day.  Of course I had to wear something green.  Monday night I had a few outfit idea’s that I wanted to try out.  But, in the end the outfit that I had picked is not what I went with.  I was a little unsure about it and so I went with something that was tried and true!

I originally wore this outfit in Fall 2013 here, so I think that enough time has passed between now and then that I can repeat it!  (Wink.)

I’m doing a few things here to make this outfit feel a little different from the first time.  Immediately, you might notice that I am wearing the skirt the “right way.”  In the most recent version (pictured above) I am doing it with the pleat in the front.  The boots are different, but at a glance they look the same!  Also, instead of going with silver jewelry and green/silver earrings, I went with gold jewelry: a starfish bracelet and gold feather statement earrings.  The only other difference is that I am wearing my hair pulled back, which I rarely ever do!

I really like this sleeveless shirt, but the white collar is starting to look a bit cream-colored/off-white.  If some Oxi-Clean doesn’t help restore it this might be one of the last times that you see it!

How was your St. Patrick’s Day?  Mine was good.  Class in the morning and then working at my bartending gig in the evening– it was quite a lucrative night, though!


Maybe Not

Wednesday was the conclusion of the first round of speeches.  It’s my only section that has a lot of people still in it– there were 16 speeches total.  I have more students in the class, but those were the ones that fulfilled the requirements to deliver a speech.  The one nice thing about when my students are giving speeches is that I have a very light week for prep work.  It’s a nice break coming off of grading what feels like a million outlines!

Overall, I am happy with the speeches.  All of my students who attempted a speech were successful—to varying degrees.  Plus, the schedule worked out in such a way that we are going to break in a really convenient spot for Spring Break.  They are actually going to have a break from my class and not have to do any big projects or homework assignments during their week off.  I don;t know if they are excited, but I am!

For my outfit, I tried to re-create an outfit that I’ve done before.  There are a few different versions of a pin on pinterest that involves a coral shirt with a blazer.  One is a brownish tweed blazer with light khaki/almost white pants and the other is with a khaki blazer and burgundy pants.  My outfit is a combination of those two.

This is not my favorite outfit, but it’s o.k.  I don’t think that my shades are quite right for the look.  I feel like the pieces are disparate and there is nothing that pulls everything together.  Oh well.

In other news, I am getting my hair did very soon and I am SO. FREAKIN. EXCITED.  Can you tell what type of look I am going for?

Also, don’t miss out my latest Youtube video— an Emma Stone Golden Globe inspired look, 2015!


Hello, loves!  Happy Friday the 13th.  (Bet you thought I was going to say Happy Valentine’s Day, huh?!?)  Well, that’s tomorrow.  Although my BF and I have already celebrated.  We are so horrible because whenever there is a “present holiday” we both get so excited to give each other gifts that we almost never wait until the actual event.

But, we celebrated last evening because it’s our normal Thursday date night and because I have to work extra this weekend at the bar.  And, if that wasn’t enough, I have tons of outlines to grade and return ASAP.

From my Valentine I received 3 Pandora bead clips for my second Pandora bracelet.  It’s one that is a leather/rope type that you wrap around several times, but all of my charms would fall to one side and bunch up.  When we were at the mall awhile back we stopped into the Pandora store and asked the sales associate and she recommended clips.  Now I can wear my more casual charm bracelet!  I got him a Fitbit Charge HR, just like the one that he recently purchased for me.  He had been talking about wanting one non-stop and I almost thought that he was going to purchase one for himself and ruin the surprise.

Last night we went to dinner at a casual Italian place and then went to see the 50 Shades of Grey movie at my request.  I don’t know why the critics are being so hard on the movie!  If you read the books then I think that is exactly what you would have expected the movie to be.  I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I will say that Dakota Johnson did an amazing job and fulfilled my minds version of Ana perfectly.  Jamie Dornan did better that I thought he would in the role of Christian Grey, but he wasn’t my version of Christian.  I think he had some really big shoes to fill and he did it well, I commend him as an actor.  Lastly, can I just say that Dakota Johnson looked freaking AMAZING and I would like to know her workout and diet plan, ASAP.

Sadly, something happened to my other pictures that I took in this outfit.  I had 6 good ones, but when I went to crop them down to size I wasn’t seeing anything but a scrambled image in iPhoto.  I tried it in Photoshop, too and had the same result.  This is the only picture that wasn’t corrupted.

Just like always, this outfit inspiration came from a picture that I pinned to my boards long ago.  I’ve long searched for a plaid button up that had a similar color palette.  Late last year, I found this one at Old Navy and decided to give it a go.  I wish that it had stripes of red instead of burgundy, but so far it has worked well in a lot of different outfits.

For dinner last night, I added a long-sleeved burgundy t-shirt with a jeweled neckline under the plaid shirt and layered a navy cardigan over it instead of the blazer.  I also swapped out the skirt for dark wash jeans and brown oxford style shoes.

Do you like this outfit?  I know I do!  Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day.
