What Season Is It Anyway?

Oy, this outfit. Spring cardigan, summer dress, autumn boots…I don’t know how to dress myself right now! Nashville just can’t decide what season it wants to be. Ordinarily I like wearing summer and spring clothes- it’s so much easier, just throw on a dress and you’re done!- but I have all these cute boots and tights and sweaters I’m dying to wear.

Today was a pretty low-key day- the usual gamut of library, theatre arts class, and aftercare. The only downside? The only movie the aftercare kids wanted to watch was High School Musical. Which they also watched on Monday. Ughhhhhhhhh…I’m bringing different movies next week.

Also, please ignore the fact that my cardigan is misbuttoned. Oops.

Knee Sock Love

I love knee socks. Always have, always will. It brings back happy memories of high school, wearing my plaid uniform skirt and my beloved knee-highs. Of course, wearing them as a young adult…not quite the same, but still. I love them. And with the weird weather, it’s a nice compromise between tights (too warm for that!) and bare legs (too cold!).

This was a pretty chill day-nothing really exciting happening. Mostly everyone is just ecstatic about fall break next week. It’s seriously all I can think about….

So Vain


This outfit makes me so happy for a simple, silly, vain reason- I look so skinny! I’ve been slowly losing weight, and this outfit highlights how much I’ve lost, and it makes me so excited.

I feel very punky in this outfit. Not that I’m really hardcore or a punk, but…it’s a slightly edgier outfit than I usually wear. And by that I mean it’s not pink or fluffy or pastel-y. If that’s a word. I don’t think it is.

I had a fantastic Narnia rehearsal with my kids today! I’m so proud of them. They’re all just adorable and awesome. But I’m looking forward to the weekend like you wouldn’t believe! I need a nap like whoa.

Caitlin does Tina Cohen-Chang doing Rachel Berry


This outfit is based on this Polyvore set: confettipaperdolls.wordpress.com/2012/08/24/red-heart-s…

I bought this sweater because I thought it was cute. And then, lo and behold, it was used on an episode of Glee! I promptly made a Polyvore set to assemble an outfit.

It took a while to find just the right items, and even then, I tweaked it a little. I didn’t buy a polo shirt (because really, who actually likes polo shirts?) and I opted for a navy headband instead of a red bow, but I thought it turned out pretty well!

It’s probably too short for a teacher. But do you know what? That’s okay. I’m covered. And I look pretty cute. And I look teacherish from the waist up at least, right?

Yeah, we’re gonna go with that.

Outfit of the Day: I Look Like a Student

Outfit of the Day 8/9/12: Oops, I Look Like a Student

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.

Outfit of the Day: Wherein I Am Lazy

8/8/12 Outfit: I am Lazy

I started off this school year thinking I was going to dress myself like a grown up. I was so excited! My chance to be an adult! New grown up clothes and heels and fancy makeup!


What do I wear after a week of school? A three-year-old dress and hot pink flats. Oh, well. I didn’t really feel like trying hard to day. I at least put my hair up in a fancy bun in an attempt to look older. I don’t think it worked. Bubblegum pink isn’t exactly a grown-up color. And wearing flats when you’re 4’11 3/4″ only makes you look shorter.


But oh well!
