Things I'm Not

Cardigan: Old Navy (option), Tee: GAP, Skirt: Thrifted ($3), Shoes: Belk (similar


...pregnant.  I'm not pregnant contrary to what my belly here is trying to communicate.

...booty tooching.  Tyra fans know what I'm talking about - it has a mind of its own, I don't control it.

...counting down the days to summer.  Oh wait, yes I am.

...surprised that Shanna won Wallis US Ambassador!

...wearing close toed shoes to work.  

...embarassed to bare my nakey toes.

I couldn't help but share these pictures because the outfit is so cute and laid back.  I have to admit I seriously thought twice about sharing them though because they aren't the most flattering shots of me.  You can tell by the circles under my eyes exactly why I'm wearing such a cozy outfit to work this day.  There are days that teaching 73 students is exhausting and with spring moving in, kids are cray cray.  So, yes, I'm using them - judge away and yes, I'm tired in this picture.

I have to say that I started reading blogs and writing a blog because of the positive atmosphere and sisterly support I was receiving from so many that I now consider friends.  It hurts my heart to hear of the drama that has taken over blogland and twitter the past few weeks.  I'm not sure what's going on or who is at fault, I just know that a lot of people are hurt because of the comments I'm seeing.  I pray that we can all remember why we started writing and what this platform gives us the power to do and that the negativity and drama may cease.

  1. I love and appreciate your honesty! Cute outfit too - perfectly cozy :) All of the negativity is such a shame - I suppose the blog world is not excluded from the world surrounding us. Good luck with the rest of the week!

  2. #1 silly girl you do not look pregnant! I have a skirt like this and I feel like it actually makes my belly stick out too. Love the polka dots.

  3. I love the second picture. I think you still look gorgeous. I've broke out all my sandals already and they aren't going ANYWHERE. Wearing them all day, every day! I hate the negativity too. I'm just focusing on staying positive no matter what.

  4. I love pink and blue together. Cute outfit. I am a teacher too. I am not sure what drama you are referring to but it's too bad when strangers who are just sharing things they love have to be negative towards each other. :(

  6. I'm a big fan of the comfy outfits. Sometimes it's the difference between a good and a grumpy day. I have my go to stretchy skirt and cami/sweater combo. :)

  7. Hahaha, booty tooching?! What in the world is that?

    I think your outfit is definitely laid-back, but also super stylish. Sounds like the perfect thing for your crazy days!

    I am so glad that I never have any idea about the drama that is going on the blogging world. It just sounds really sad :(
