This week was the first week of school for my students. I always try to look extra nice then, and this year I decided to wear a “new” outfit each day. I consider it part of tracking my progress as far as owning my style (#32 on the list), so I took a picture each day.
A few aha! moments from the week:
- If I do something cute to my nails (like the newsprint manicure I did this week), I will inevitably break a nail right as I leave the house.
- Somehow, every year I forget that I spend too much time on my feet while teaching to comfortably wear heels, so I always wear a pair on the first day.
- My brain is only half-functional in the morning, as evidenced by the fact that it took me until Friday to adjust the lighting before taking my picture.
- Styling my hair every morning when it’s out and natural is actually feasible.
Speaking of pictures, my face isn’t in them since I am still debating whether I should keep this blog semi-anonymous or not.
Tuesday: JCP dress from the back to school haul and some old brown croc-textured flats (since my feet were killing me)
Wednesday: Maxi dress from Target (bought on sale for $18) and jeweled sandals from Payless
Thursday: Dress from Target (clearance for $13) and brown wedges from Keds
Friday: Really old dress from Target and blue top from New York & Company. I actually put the two together, because separately, they let my bra strap show (not good for work), but together they make for a comfortable casual Friday outfit. Worn with blue flats from the back to school haul.
