Here are my outfits from the past couple of weeks. Just getting around to posting – I am on Mid-Winter break right now. For a while there, I wasn’t even feeling like having my picture taken because we were knee deep in an acrylic painting project and I was washing brushes every day. I was wearing some of my back-of-the-closet stuff paired with smock and apron layering.
They have lifted the mask wearing rule in regular life but not yet at school.
I’ve been removing the mask for my photo ops with the exception of this one (above). It is a denim mask from Mother – the first one I bought in 2020. This is the first time I wore it. The fabric is super thick and I could barely breathe in it, lol, but it was the only thing pulling this look together. Oh, and I sounded like the teacher in the Peanuts cartoon that day. No one could understand a thing I said.
I wore the red jacket for a Valentine/Heart Association day combo. I wasn’t feeling like wearing red that day because I am not a fan of the “let’s all dress the same” scenario. I prefer to choose outfits based on how my body feels, what I am doing lesson-wise and what the weather is like.
Our school does this “Purple Thursdays” fashion statement, which was initiated by a previous violet-loving principal. Purple is not my vibe, although I have a couple of things I could wear once in a blue moon (purple moon?) so, I partake only occasionally.
I got my hair cut again – this was mask related. It is easier to go without hair accessories while wearing a mask. My hair is actually a lot lighter than it looks in the pictures. Chalk that up to fluorescent ceiling lights. The lighting seems to be better in Katy’s room, though. We take the pics during our mutual planning period in the mornings.
I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos and learning about “content creators”. They are lifestyle vloggers who share their lives and do product placements for a fee. (I stumbled upon this young lady, who happens to be a Syracuse University grad – Margot Lee.)
I am fascinated by this concept and may investigate how I can do something similar in the future. I really love YouTube.
