Monday Love?

Like I mentioned on my twitter this morning, there are just certain things I don't usually admit to. Such as being a morning person. And...prepare yourselves: a Monday person. It's just that on Mondays, I am pretty well rested, and full of optimism because I've actually planned out an outfit. On Mondays, I tell myself, "Wow. Wasn't that so easy? Planning an outfit the night before instead of desperately searching at 7:20am? What a good start! I am going to keep this up all week!" Yeah, I've got Monday's handled.

It's Wednesday afternoons that get me. Last year, Wednesday was our short day at school, and my internal clock just can't make the switch to early Fridays, so it's always a disappointment when 1:00 rolls around and I remember I've got 2 hours to go. By Wednesday, I'm not in the mood to iron anything, and then later, I'm depressed about my wrinkles. The planned outfits have flown out the windown, and I usually forget my lunch.

This seems to be the general attitude throughout the whole classroom, actually. Monday means a clean slate, a chance at a detention free week, a chance they might win their football/volleyball game, a chance at an A. By Wednesday, half the class has a detention, they've lost the game and gotten a B.

So I am thankful for Mondays, because I'm not going to feel this much optimism again until Friday.

Skirt: Vintage/thrifted

I was informed by one of my students (again) that I used to dress cool, now I'm like an old lady.

Wait till they see my keds. Ha.

After school, I went to the Goodwill which is conveniently located just across the street, and boy, am I glad I did. Have you ever gone into a thrift store thinking, wow, wouldn't it just be amazing if I just walked in here and randomly found something like ______? And then, before you even really had time to finish your thought, THERE IT IS? That's what happened to me. I recently fell in love with silk blouses, but often find them to be very dull. Today, I was musing over how nice it would be to find something a little more unique, when lo and behold, there it was. A vintage silk shirt.

No picture till I wear it, but I will say this: It was a very timely find!
