Maybe I Should...

Maybe I should invest in some casual clothes for work. I was kinda over the dressing up in hopes that a. folks would get a life and b. I would be judged by the results I produce at work rather than my $5.00 outfit that looks like I spent $150.  Yep there I got that off my chest! Breathes easier.

I got away this weekend and had a nice visit with my mom and KT. I was able to sit on the front steps, enjoy the sounds of nature, spend a minute being warmed by the sun and just letting go of the past week's frustrations. Having my son back has forced me to put all the mind boggling things on the back burner. I love him for it. My son forces me to stay in the moment and enjoy it.

While we were with my mother, I told her my plans to just dress down and keep to myself. You know what they say out of sight and you are out of mind. KT being the smarty pants that he is asked me if I had enough jeans to dress down everyday. I laughed so hard at this question!!! I mean think about it. Go back through my blog posts, what would be considered dressed down in my looks minus the short shorts and girlfriend night out looks? Fail (giggles).  only wear flat sandals during the summer months. I can't afford to sustain a injury to my  cute toes at work.

The jeans I do own are skinny and not work wear appropriate. Sooooo I had to go back and rethink today's look for the first day back on the grind. KT even agreed to take pictures for me today after work. We are trying to decide what days I'll blog outfits during the week. I can't say enough how much life he brings to my life. I can't believe he started 7th grade today. I'm so very proud of my wise tween. I am truly blessed with a special little BIG man as I call him.

The weather was dreary and I'm still trying to learn the settings on my camera. I wish you could see the true color of the skirt and shoes. I didn't want to do office dressy so I opted for what I thought was an approachable look. I'll let you in on a secret. MY FEET WERE HURTING LIKE HELL WHEN I ARRIVED HOME. The shoes are cute but they are not made for a day of teaching. Hope you like.

Very cute and comfy! I know how you feel about dressing down. I used to do that around my husband's family because I didn't want them to talk about me and think I was materialistic. But then I snapped out of it, this is me! Take it or leave it!

Wow, I'm amazed at how many of you can relate to this wardrobe drama. For me it's just something that brings me pleasure. It is unfortunate some people believe I'm so shallow that fashion is ALL I care about. On the other hand hiding so others won't feel a certain way is to me worse. Oh to live in a full time glamorous world!
