I’ve about had it with Nature and her raging case of bi-polar disorder. My closet and I never know how to adjust to her whims quickly enough. C’est la vie!
The week started off with 60 wonderful degrees at 7am! Then came the wind. And by wind I mean: hold-onto-your-britches-because-you-might-end-up-sans-pants… Hello, Gale Force Winds. Notice furbaby, the winds knocking on the windows always terrifies her…
Mother Nature was back in mood: “PermaFrost” with a 30 chilly degrees when I woke up. But at least I didn’t have to worry about meeting the Wizard of Oz. (((It’s a legit possibility everyday here.)))

Wednesday aka “How Would You Wear It Wednesday”:
SURPRISE! Torrential downpour. Not going to lie, we NEED the rain in that desperate kind of way where you pray, and hope, and put on your best behavior just to see a few sprinkles. But I digress…
On Wednesdays the outfit-of-the-day will be a piece I want YOUR input on! How would you style this cream and black and polka dots all over blazer? I found it at Target on clearance for under $10 — naturally, it needed a home in my closet. I’ve done the obvious black pairing, and even branched out with a graphic t under it… but that’s where my creativity has come to die with this piece. Give you a cookie if you can help me? 🙂
Some days… you just need to keep it simple. But every day… I like **sparkle**!
This blouse has been with me since, I’m guessing, right after high school. My momma MADE me get it for interviews and church and college. I’m sure I rolled my eyes as I didn’t see the value in her taste back then. But, of course, she was right. And I LOVE this shirt. She’s even had to work her laundry magic on it recently when my dryer BLACKENED it. She’s a miracle worker and saved my little old blouse.
These shoes… A recent consignment find! They were brand new, never worn, original box and tags. And the sparkle… can you not?
I **try** to keep my outfits cost conscious, hence, my love of consignment shopping! It takes work, and a certain mood, but it can totally be worth it!
By the end of the week, after 90 kids and umpteen meetings, it’s all I can do to get out of bed and put clothes on. I feel like Gru talking to Dr. Nefario when I look in the mirror: “Why, why are you so… OLD?” (Watch the clip) I work with kids; give me a break.
I feel the older I get, the more I become my mother — don’t lie to me, you know you feel the same way! My mom always wears classic colors, fits/cuts, and of course, blazers. Her chic uniform has somehow morphed into my own (insert my surprised face here).
Way to set the bar high, momma! ❤
??What’s your uniform??
