The weather is all flim-flam again. Hot last week, cold today, rainy tomorrow. It’s really all over the place. So for the last two weeks, it’s been dresses and sandals or pants and sweaters, or something in between.
There are four weeks of school left! Can’t believe how fast it all went. (Go bears!) I have some art shows planned for the summer – more about that later!
I live in exercise clothes and paint smocks in the summer, so I don’t foresee posting outfit-of-the-days (#ootd) between June 24th and Labor Day-ish. But I can’t rule it out. I was thinking about going back to the say yes policy I practiced last summer. I already said no to a bunch of things this week – I’m still working on it.
I love this Banana Republic olive ponte knit dress. It was the last one on bananarepublic.com – on sale with an additional 40% off. I never get breaks like that. In a dream world, this fashion blogging would lead to free clothes from my favorite designers. And if you are listening, I’m a 0 in Banana Republic, a 2 in Trina Turk and a small or XS depending on style and a 0 in BCBG Max Azria. 7 1/2 in a sandal, 8 in boots.
I know it’s kind of a fantasy – too bad I wasn’t born in the ’90s, because these girls seem to be living the dream.
Here is another article about female bloggers.
My sister suggested I change out my poses and another person thought my classroom was messy. But those are my favorite things about my photographs (I am the only person on Instagram currently using the hashtags #fashionintherealworld and #fashioninrealtime). That and my shoes. If I had a dollar for every time I heard how-do-you-walk-in-those-heels?, I would have that six figure salary!
I wore this outfit the day I taught gym classes in addition to art in order to help out with the dance lessons – swing, bunny hop and hokey pokey for the WWII event. I wore Champion fitness gear under that yellow tunic top. Got very sweaty that day jumping around for the equivalent of four hours. I don’t know what I was thinking. It was totally exhausting!
I feel most comfortable in black. I usually wear it every day of the first week of school because I am in mourning for my summer vacation, lol, and then I’m partial to black Monday throughout the school year. I think I have at least eight different pairs of black pants – and a new pair at the alterations place getting hemmed as we speak. But whatevs, you can never have enough.
Purple though – almost nothing. We do a purple Thursday at work. I just can’t do it. It’s so Donny Osmond’s socks circa the ’70s. I can technically wear that Trina Turk pink dress. It’s actually the it color of last season – wild orchid. Or I can do what some of the bloggers do – initiate a pink Wednesday. That’s from Mean Girls or Clueless or some such ’90s chick flick. I’m sure those big buck fashion bloggers would know. 🙂 😉

My favorite is the Banana Republic olive ponte knit dress, Karen. Very chic. The Trina Turk BCBG Generation reminds me of something Julie Harris used to wear on the ‘Mod Squad’ shows of the 70s! That’s a compliment, by the way. Far out!!
I don’t think you should change a thing about your fashion photo feel. It’s quite an individual niche, with the classroom that’s all yours. If I were King of the World, not only would the designers be sending you their work to model gratis, but they’d by paying you to strut their stuff.
Hey, Karen, end-of-school-year approaching means we’re closer to our Syracuse bloggers lunch at Clark’s, too. Yay!
Yes! It will have to be a late lunch – I don’t eat past 4pm- ish.
We will figure it out, Karen. 🙂
