I Am So Not Punk Rock

10/22/12

The closest I come to being punk is my collection of Fall Out Boy MP3s, which is definitely too mainstream to count.

Never the less, this is a super comfy outfit- important when you’ve had a headache for a week and have to deal with a bunch of noisy kids! I got a lot of compliments on my crazy leggings and my giant cartoon character shoes, which was awesome!

On the downside, I forgot that I was going to church at night, and while it was 81 degrees during the day, it was going to drop to the low 60s-upper 50s at night. I stopped by Target to run some errands and picked up a Converse One Star jacket for 50% percent off, which is super comfy and will probably live in my library for days when I get surprised by Nashville’s crazy weather!

Rachel-Minnie Berrymouse

10/16/12
My students debated about whether I looked more like Minnie Mouse or Rachel Berry. At least they think it’s cute.

I didn’t wash my hair today. And I went out in public. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. I am a compulsive hair-washer. I keep reading things about how it’s bad for your hair, it strips it of natural oils, you need to use non-sulfate based shampoos…and I’ll go like half a day before being like “OH GOD I’M SO GROSS SOMEONE HAND ME THE HERBAL ESSENCES.” I only shampoo the top of my head and condition the rest, but still. I think this is the first time in my life that I’ve voluntarily left the house with my hair unwashed.

I did use dry shampoo, though. Which I’m still a little leery of. But it made me feel better, so okay!

Today was the first day that my adorable flock of actors ran through Act I of Narnia all the way through. It took nearly two hours, but for our first real run-through, it went really well! They’re all very inexperienced, but they all work really hard and I’m proud of them.

Also, this dress makes my boobs look way too big and there’s literally nothing I can do about that.

The Panem Bobbysoxer

9/21/12

I don’t…I don’t even know what this outfit is. I didn’t have to teach today- I just had to shelve books and do Narnia rehearsal- so I just wanted to be comfortable. And….I was. Which balanced out the fact that I was wearing a miniskirt, cropped leggings, and saddle shoes. I look about ten.

I also put my hair in a sideways inside-out french braid. The Katniss braid. And so…I stuck my Mockingjay pin in my hair. So yeah. I’m the 1950s version of Katniss. I guess. I don’t know.

In any case, after work I made my dad’s birthday cake- milk chocolate chocolate chip cake with a whipped cream/cream cheese frosting. So. Good. OMG.

So Vain

9/20/12

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.

The Compliments Outfit

9/17/12

I don’t know if I was just around super nice people today or what, but I got a ton of compliments on this outfit! I was pretty excited. It’s not a typical outfit for me- I usually don’t do dresses with narrow skirts- but it was comfy and I felt cute and it was the perfect thing to cheer up a dreary rainy day- even if my belt and boots were different shades of brown. Oh, well. YOLO and whatnot.

I love the combination of navy and gold, and these mustard-y tights went really well with the dress, I thought. Although every time I wear them, my sister mistakes it for my actual skin color. She insists it’s because of the Great Legwarmer Tan of ’09.

I wore this for a long day of subbing for fifth grade, rummaging around my sad little library, teaching voice and diction in theatre arts (we did tongue twisters!), aftercare, and a Monday night church service. But I felt cute the whole time- even though my hair exploded in wild rain-curls and I had to pin it up for Emanate. It was still kind of cute!
