I keep trying to dress like a grown up and FAILING MISERABLY. I felt so mature when I got to work, and one of my students said “aw, Mrs. T, you look like a Catholic schoolgirl!” SEE? EPIC FAILURE.
But I really like this outfit, so oh well. Besides, between my diminutive stature and my round hamster cheeks, I will perpetually look like a fifteen-year-old. I might as well just give up trying to look older
and just try to look nice.
These boots are probably my favorite things I’ve found on eBay- brand new Blowfish Aerins, in my size, for only $9.90 and free shipping. NO REGRETS, JUST AWESOME BOOTS. They’re my first pair of Blowfishes, and I adore them. I might be a lifelong convert.
I wore this to teach the last day of my introductory crash course in theatre history- musical theatre! I opened with an activity where they had to decide by the written one-sentence synopsis if it was a musical or not. They were all musicals! Their reaction to The Producers was especially hilarious. “There’s a musical about Hitler?!”
Yes, my children. Yes, indeed.
I also used the Staniac lip and cheek stain from my July Birchbox. Blush always makes me uneasy- 22 years in theater has conditioned me to apply way too much. I think this worked, though! I had just enough of a rosy flush, and it was pretty easy to apply, albeit a little messy. Any more, though, and I would have looked like an escapee china doll.
Also, I really wish I had been told to fix my cardigan. I have a bad case of awkward boob.
