WooHoo!

I mentioned in my last post that I had a goal of doing my hair, makeup, and wearing a cute outfit all on the same day.  So, last Friday I was selected to attend a quarterly round table meeting with my boss’ boss and represent my team.  So, naturally I wanted to look more polished and professional than I do on an everyday basis.  That’s sort of the great thing and the worst thing about working in a call center– no one see’s you so if your hair is sticking up in all directions and there’s toothpaste crusted on your shirt it can be your own secret.

I started with navy trousers and then added this printed blouse.  It’s new and I thought that it paired really well with these pants then to keep it more Summery I chose a yellow cardigan.  I added an oversized gold watch and navy pumps to complete the look.

Wednesday was the last official class day of Spring Semester 2017.  It flew right by like I knew it would!  If you’ve followed the blog for a long time then you may be familiar that on one of the last class sessions I like to dress down in jeans and a t-shirt or something similar.  This is just that outfit.  It was a little chilly that day so I paired this wine colored sweater with my dark wash bootcut jeans, a brown belt, brown Oxford shoes, and a silver watch.

I always think that it’s important at the end of the semester for my students to view me as a peer and no longer as their “superior.”  Next Monday is their final exam period.  This is the first time that I am administering a written exam as opposed to making their final speeches their exam.  I’ve tried several different things this semester.  A few of them have worked and some of them haven’t.  But, that’s OK.

Thanks for reading,

Pin-Spired

Wednesday was a beautiful day!  I was excited to wear a short-sleeved t-shirt and a skirt.  This outfit is modeled after this pin, here.  The models skirt is more of a mottled grey and slightly longer, but I think that I still captured the gist of the outfit.  I am wearing my round toe pumps that match the color of the belt.  This outfit is out of the realm of normal for me for a few reasons.

First, it’s not often that I wear a t-shirt to teach.  Second, I can count on one hand the number of times in 5 years that I’ve worn a skirt without tights or pantyhose!  But, it was such a nice day and the outfit was a bit more on the casual side so it just seemed appropriate.  I really like the way that this outfit pairs 3 different neutrals together in one outfit.  I took along a black cardigan just in case I got chilly but I didn’t end up needing it.

Thursday I went with another outfit comprised of a basic t-shirt and based on a pin.  I think that this outfit looks put-together and just slightly above basic, but also casual and comfortable.

 

My burgundy t-shirt is scoop neck as opposed to v-neck and fits closer to the body than in the pin-spiration.  I paired it with my distressed boyfriend jeans, a cognac belt, my tan/suede booties, and gold and purple pendant necklace.  I liked this outfit, too, and felt that it was a great choice for the weather of the day and the occasion.

On Friday I went with a slightly dressier outfit but on Saturday I was back to my t-shirt and jeans.  Check back for those two outfits.
