Outfit Round up for Nov. 16, 17, and 19

Alright, time for one big outfit post.

Outfit for Nov 16

I am a planning type of person. I lay out my clothes the night before. Some days that doesn't work out so well. Some days I can't stop fidgeting with my clothes. I amke up an outfit, decided I dont' like some piece, switch it out something else, realize now things don't go, and I end up wearing something entirely different than I originally planning. It was one of those days.

Nov. 17

This dress has a funny little story.

Years ago, I was the biggest tomyboy you can imagine. All oversize t-shirts, sweatshirts, and jeans three sizes too large. My father occasionally nagged that I should dress better. One day at Target, my father had a fit about this. He grabbed a dress from a nearby rack and said, "Here! Take this!" I tried it on to make sure it fit and suddenly it was in my closet for years without having been worn.

Now that I enjoy wearing dresses, I put it on and discovered that it was a badly made dress from Target which is just as surprising as Lady Gaga not wearing pants. Fortunately I prayed to the sewing gods and removed the horrible belt it came with. Would you look at that? I almost look like I know what I'm doing!

Nov. 19

Being a teacher means I tend to dress a bit awkwardly. I hate the standard outfit of a cardigan + khakis + sneakers, so I try to vary it up. At least the students remember me. However, I have to be careful of two things: comfortable shoes and necklines. Comfortable shoes are necessary because I'm only my feet all day. As for necklines, that's pretty straight forward, especially if you're working with teenagers.

wow you are a teacher! that is hard work for sure! and especially if you teach teens! I love your outfits you put together; you are very creative and would fit in so much with what people wear here (present company excluded)

I think it's much better for a teacher's authority to dress up a bit. Good for you.
