We had an unseasonably warm day here in the northeast. Although it was windy, the temperature was quite pleasant. I put on my boots before realizing that I wouldn’t need them today. (I wear my galoshes or winter boots to school and then change into my shoes in the teacher’s lounge.)
A few days ago when I was straightening up my side of the bedroom I was putting clothes away in the closet and I happened to catch a glimpse of several items that I haven’t worn in awhile and some what forgot that I owned. I think it really is true what they say– out of sight; out of mind. It almost made me want to re-arrange my closet so that I had a new set of items front and center. I didn’t.
But, I did pull out a few pieces that sparked some inspiration. One of them was the scarf that I wore today. The scarf was really the starting piece for the entire outfit. From there I pulled out the dark brown in the pants (another forgotten closet item), the pink from the button up, and the cardigan to make it seasonably appropriate. Without the scarf, I don’t think that the outfit would have felt pulled together. I tried on 4 different pairs of shoes: my pointy-toed brown pumps, a pair of round toe brown pumps, a pair of oxford-ish brown shoes and my nude pumps. I felt that the brown was too expected, and the nude was a great way to tie in the lighter color of the cardigan. Overall, I was very pleased with how this outfit turned out.
My students were balls of energy today! I was excited by their alertness, but then it came time to get down to business and they had a little trouble settling down. They had a quiz over chapter 2 and a few of them didn’t do as well as I felt they should. I’m all for having fun but not at the expense of learning. They turned in their first big assignment, so tomorrow I will be spending my afternoon grading papers to return to them on Thursday.
I had a smaller class than usual today. I think that I may have found my core group of students. I dropped from 22 down to 17. I will probably lose a few more along the way, but that (unfortunately) is to be expected.
What did you wear on this windy but warm-ish day?
