Happy Hump Day! Today I am chaperoning the Kindergarten field trip to the Dallas Children's Theater.... pray for me. People often joke with me about being a "saint" since I work with pre-teens all day long and we all know how weird pre-teens are, but the truth is that there is a special place in heaven for Kindergarten teachers. I mean.... the nose wiping, the line leading, the tattle taling. I don't know how they do it. For reals. I'm super excited to get to spend some time with Luke and his buddies - and we get to ride a school bus which apparently is THE BEST THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!!! ;)
It's been a while since I've done a "What I Wore" post... mainly because, being sick, I haven't worn anything super interesting. Last week I was in "survival mode" and wore my Evys Tree sophie WAY too often. It's a hoodie - but definitely better than wearing my XL "Go Mustangs" hoodie that I like to sport at home. :)
I was loving the colors in my "stack" on Saturday... turquoise is one of my absolute FAVORITES for Spring/Summer and I loved how well the Jardin bracelet fits right in!
And check out the Jardin chandeliers!!! So fun for summer!
And since I"m keeping it real up in here - I've been LIVING in my flannel pjs :)
(sidenote... I am cracking up at this picture (it's post make-up removal) because I had a student yesterday act SHOCKED when I told him I was going to be 31. He genuinely thought I was 20. hahaha Although looking at this picture I can kind of see why he thought that considering I feel like I look like I'm 12.
But back to the pjs!
This bird pair is screaming my name. Look how cute those little birds are!!!
And these pairs from PJ salvage are sassy and sweet (and comfy... let's not forget comfy)
This weekend has been CRAZY warm here in North Texas and I decided it was time to break out the linen pants. I know. White linen in January. What can I say... I'm a rebel... a rebel in white linen pants.
I tried to keep them a little more "winter" with a dark violet ruffle tee and cocoon sweater.
If you're looking for a pair of linen pants for Spring/Summer (like a normal person), I love this pair (in white and black!!!)
Monday I cuffed some navy cords, threw on a white tee, laced up my TOMS wedges and sported the tartan blanket coat from Anthro. Listen.... this isn't for everyone and there are several of y'all out there rolling your eyes at me at this very moment.... but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it :)
During high school I was a total conformist. For my first high school dance I bought a GORGEOUS and huge black tulle skirt with a black, fitted, cropped long sleeve cashmere sweater. I LOVED it! Until I realized that everyone else was wearing typical "1999 formal dresses" and I returned it to the sweet little boutique and wore a lilac dress (in february) and looked just like every other girl there. I hated it.... but HEAVEN FORBID I stand out. My Senior year of high school I decided to let my crazy show a bit and started really developing my own style (y'all.... I sewed name patches all over a denim jacket and wore the JUNK out of it. I started wearing dresses with colored tights to school and proudly wore the only colored dress on Homecoming court. My prom dress was about 20 lbs of pistachio colored raw silk and I was happier than ever because I was wearing things that I loved.
So, that tends to be my motto now... I wear what I love. Is my style for everyone? Certainly not. But how BORING would it be if we all wore the exact same thing all the time?? End diatribe spurred on by a coat :)
Yesterday, I put my white linen pants back on, paired with a black flowy top and denim jacket. I accented my simple outfit with some awesome accessories including these Grace chandeliers.
Mama needs a tan.
If you've read here for a while, you know how much I love Farmgirl Paints on Etsy and her custom hand stamped cuff bracelets. Well... she's opening shop up again on February 2nd and I can't wait!!! I got this bracelet to remember how Mason said "Lasterday, this day, Nexterday" and I'm so glad because he's already starting to use the proper words!!! BOO for growing up!
I'm considering an order and am thinking about these sayings on my next cuff...
"Comparison is the thief of joy"
"Who you are and whose you are"
Lastly.... I wanted to give a quick reminder that if you don't already have the green serenity stone drop earrings.... now is the time to scoop up a pair!!! I wear mine ALL THE TIME and I love tha tthey make an impact even from farther away.
The aqua color of the same earring is GORGEOUS as well!
So.... there you have it! What have you been wearing on repeat this week? Is it unseasonably warm where you are? It's supposed to get COLD again here this week, and I'm excited to throw on some coats :)
Happy Wednesday, friends!!!
