Week two of classes are complete and so far, so good. My schedule is quite lax this semester which is quite pleasant after a rather hectic fall last year. I'm enjoying the calm :)
I'm actually moving backwards with my outfits this week as this first number was worn on Wednesday. The sweater dress was a Christmas gift from my mom which I actually picked out while we were killing time around Thanksgiving before a lunch date with childhood friends. I can't recall the name of the store it came from but it was one of those shops FULL of different vendors. I'm quite taken with it.
I finished this one off with an old cardi, gifted tights and boots from the mister and a necklace I made from an old snake and stone screwback earring. One of these days I'll get a close up of it as it's pretty killer!
To be honest, so far after teaching each day this semester, I've come home and have crashed for a bit. My day ends early enough that I'm able to squeeze in some mini-naps that don't disrupt my night sleeping which I LOVE. Once the mister gets home, I roust myself up and have him snap a few shots and I begin my late afternoon/early evening routines. I have always been a napper due to lifelong thyroid battles but the older I get, the less I'm able to find time to steal time away for them. With a more mellow schedule right now, I'm taking full advantage and napping when I can.
A few weeks back, I hit the motherload on awesome vintage tops, this shirt included. Each was only $1 and I loaded up. I even scored an early 60s Vera shirt that is to die for. While the pattern is certainly floral, I refer to this shirt as my chicken shirt. It looks chicken-y or yolk-y to me for some reason :) I threw on a black sweater from Gap clearance that I'm beyond glad I didn't put back on the rack, some Gap clearance slacks that are the smallest pair of pants I've bought in a long time, booties from the mister and a necklace made and gifted to my by a friend.
So here's to riding this smooth, calm train for as long as I can! Cheers!
