Wild Wednesday


Happy Hump Day Divas & Divamoms,

Hope everyone is enjoying the day. I’m certain all the parents are elated the kids are back in school. The teachers are too (coughs and crosses self). No really we are so happy to have your babies back with us. Just remember you are the first and greatest teacher.  The world of education salutes you.

I’ve been bitten by the animal print bug. I picked this shirt up from Forever 21 a few weeks ago and was ready to wear it the moment I got it home. I’m warning you now not to judge me when you see a blog post next week with this lovely sheer high low blouse styled again.

Remember what Eboni, my shoe fairy sister tweeted? She reminded me one day that I should refashion my clothes not buy more. Ty my stylish mom friend in my head suggest on her blog that you have 3 styles in mind when you make a purchase. I have 6, ok a lot. With the state of education and the budget, I’m going to put these two rules to the test this academic year.

Speaking of academics….a year has passed since I was enrolled in graduate school. I still want to finish my Ph.D. Unfortunately; college seems to be out of reach for those who have yet to obtain an undergrad degree so I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on myself. But it happens on those days when I feel like the educator that is good enough to showcase but not good enough to promote. I was speaking with someone about this a few days ago. She moved on and eventually left the school district but with jobs being so hard to find I’m feeling stuck.

I read a quote last week while reading Paulo Coelho’s The Aleph. It read, “Dreamers cannot be tamed.” I was reminded of this today as I pondered a few things about my life and the next chapter. How appropriate for a wild Wednesday eh?

Luv the look of the printed shirt with the pop of color on the bottom!

I absolutely LOVE this outfit!

I'm glad my Instagram post offered you some inspiration. You take that virtual push and get that Ph.d. I'm not sure yet if I want to go that far but I'm definitely not ruling it out. Graduate school for my Master's just started and I love it. I feel distinguished. Lol.

Good luck with whatever you decide and God bless!

I love this look on you. Yes, getting an education is out of reach for so many right now and there are others buried in student loans and unable to find gainful employment.
