Black Mourning

Ulla Johnson dress, BCBGeneration sandals

I wore all black this week because I am in mourning for my summer vacation – and because I just love wearing black.  I think I have, like, six black skirts and about a dozen different pairs of black pants.  I don’t know how many tops.  I could potentially extend my mourning period through the month of September just for the challenge of it.  But I don’t think I will.

My grandmother used to hate seeing the old widows at church all dressed in black.  She was a pearls, pink crochet cardigan, and pastel floral dress kind of girl, so I know she wouldn’t approve.  In 1996, I was hired as a long term substitute.  At the end of that first school year, I had to go through the interview process all over again when the other teacher decided to retire.  I wore red and black (the school colors) every day to work until it was confirmed that I had gotten the job.  Fashion themes are fun!  Go Bears!

The Perfect Cardigan

Free People cardigan, Trina Turk dress, Hue tights, Nine West booties

I am all about the cardigan at work.  Kind of a Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood thing, lol. I dress in layers and the sweater comes off pretty quickly. We have been running the kiln, so, it has been toasty in the classroom.  I’m always donning multiple smocks in order to not sustain paint, Mod-Podge, plaster, clay, oil pastel or the-like messes on my clothing.  It is a messy job, but I am doing my best to keep it fashionable.  I love clothes.  Love fashion!!!!!
