Michael Michael Kors sweater, Macy's
buttondown, passed down from Mom
necklace, Forever 21
It was drizzly and dreary the day I wore this, but a hot pink sweater and lots of hot tea go a long way to combating the dismal weather.
I'm adding a black-and-white plaid or gingham buttondown to my thrift wish list. This one is serviceable, but I'd like something with a curved hem, longer length, and full-length sleeves. It's hard to layer a sweater with full-length sleeves over a three-quarter-sleeved blouse. First, I tried simply scrunching up the sweater sleeves, but I ended up with what I dubbed "marshmallow arms." I ended up doing some strategic folding to combat the puff.
I got a last-minute substitute teaching job yesterday, and by last minute, I mean the school called me at 8:15 a.m. to ask whether I was available. Due to family obligations, I usually can't take last-minute jobs, but I had someone else to cover at home yesterday. I hustled down there and ended up having a great time with the first-graders. I've realized that subbing is a wonderful way to get a sneak peek at how other teachers organize their room and structure what they do so students can work on their own - two areas I need to work on. I got a lot of great ideas because this teacher is obviously experienced - the room was cheerful (with a Dr. Seuss theme to boot!), neat as a pin, and the students worked well on their own. I was a little concerned at first that there would be no sub plan, but everything was neatly placed in a container, labeled, and there were clear directions for the day. I'm a long way off from having that kind of room and having things run like clockwork, so it's always inspiring to see another exemplar.
