Turtlenecks As Planned

#tashkovski bracelet #saksfifthavenue sweater #trinaturk dress #marcjacobs boots

I wore turtlenecks this week. I have four and there were four days of school, but I didn’t feel like wearing one on Friday. Sticking to a theme is the plan but plans don’t always seem to go as planned.

I’m in the process of planning an event and I spent half the day crying because it doesn’t feel like things will work out. Things are always working out, lol, but not necessarily the way you want them to work out. I’m waiting for the universe to surprise and delight me. I mean, I am allowing the universe to do that because I know how it works – no buts about it. I’ll stop crying now. Thanks, Bobbi. <3 🙂

Separates

I dressed for comfort last week. Separates featuring leather and T-shirts. Four classes finished a clay project, two are using colored pencil and two are painting. I found my denim apron in the big cupboard by my desk while looking for something else. Yessssssss – because things are about to start getting messy.

Most of the boxes on the back counter are filled with the new glazes I’d ordered. Many of the items I purchased for this year are on back order though. I can’t remember what I have planned for tomorrow, lol. When I planned ahead, like, you know, in August, it was with the notion that the supplies would be available – but no biggie. It will all work itself out.

P.S. My clothes reflect the art – Sugar Skulls are a theme. Also: Butterflies. <3

It’s All Free

#kesnyc #tashkovski #freepeople #bcbgeneration

When I am in my classroom, I feel a bit like a caged animal. I can’t go to the bathroom whenever I want to – I have a two minute window here and there, which takes adjusting to after having so much freedom over the summer.

I have two bathrooms in my house now and central air – no air condish at school.

And so, those two things are the only cons to my job. Not the students or the curriculum, or the amazing community of Chittenango, New York.

It is so fun to create new lessons, to introduce new art concepts and to just spend time with my students again in my own classroom.

I’m starting with some drawing and graphic design projects. I’m sharing information about Keith Haring and his art retrospective at The Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York. I just found out it isn’t over until October 11th – which means maybe the students can convince their families to take a trip out there? That would be incredible!

I started the school year in this Free People cotton dress. It is so comfortable and colorful! I just love it! Thank you, Bloomingdales! <3

The Loose Fit & the Peplum

I am opting for loose fitting dresses and peplums, as I navigate the end of the school year. I am up a smidge more than five pounds since the school year began. This is due in part to ice cream and most recently, to the spanakopita from St. Sophia’s Greek Fest (so good!).

It is also because I have spent the majority of the school year sitting behind a desk. I will get myself back to normal soon. No – I will not be the person with a closet full clothes that do not fit! <3

Cotton/Leather Combo

Spring 2021 has a T-shirt and skirt vibe – with boots in case of rain. I love the comfort of this look – the crew neck looks best on Zoom video. It does feel like a style that is the most “me” :cotton top/leather skirt. Masks not optional – yet.

Mini Time

I did a mini skirt/dress week. It is getting warmer outside here in Syracuse, so, why not? Ten weeks left until summer vacation.

Uniform

Wearing all black is like wearing a uniform. There is comfort to it, and a sort of simplistic language, that absence of focal point, that thing where someone says, “I don’t remember what she was wearing, but she looked great.” Or at least that’s the dream, isn’t it?

I used to do a Black Mondays thing but now it’s just about what feels right in the moment (a.k.a. at 6:55 am).

Thought I would try a pattern week – the problem – I don’t always feel like following a plan. So, this is just a hodge-podge of outfits from several different weeks. Thank you, Rachel Zoe, Cinq a Sept, Trina Turk, Talitha Collection, Free People, Kobi Halperin and AllSaints!

The warmer spring-time weather brings out the cotton in me. T-shirts and ethereal dresses from www.freepeople.com.

We are just about to end the 3rd quarter of school and begin our final quarter. What a year!

I seem to get more work done if I am dressed – that is, out of pajamas and into real clothes, as though I am actually going somewhere.  Today after an amazing hike at Green Lakes and some sunbathing on my deck (what a beautiful day!), I bathed and donned my Equipment leather dress then set out to organize paperwork for my Schoology platform.

I also scheduled some Zoom meetings and emailed students about them and about other stuff.  It wasn’t technically supposed to be a workday, but I like to have things ready – email on Sunday nights so that students can work on their artwork on Wednesdays and Fridays.

It is a weird new normal.
