I haven't done a good old-fashioned outfit post in a long time, so we snapped these while waiting on the sidewalk for our bus to work the other day. My hair looks a little different because I straightened it, but I was in a hurry, so it didn't end up completely straight.
This outfit is basically a collection of some of the favorite pieces of my wardrobe:
Dress - I am not an online shopper, but this is the first dress that convinced me to step out of my comfort zone and take the risk of buying something online without being able to try it on. Somehow, even before I started blogging, I stumbled across the Shabby Apple brand and fell in love with this dress. I haven't often taken photos of it, but it's been a go-to dress when I want to feel very fabulous on many occasions since.
Shoes - My Christmas present from last year. They were love at first sight in a mall in Texas--if I hadn't bought them, I know they'd still haunt my dreams to this day. Funny, I'm asking for shoes again this Christmas...
Hair flower - You may have noticed that I'm fond of sticking flowers and bows in my hair. This be-feathered clip has been my favorite since I spied it at craft show on the day after Thanksgiving in 2012. The jewel tones are just my style!
Watch - My Dad bought me this watch as a "Congratulations, all your tests are done!" when I finished the ACT and SAT tests in winter 2007. It's the only watch I've had since then (I wore it in my high school senior pictures). In recent years I hadn't worn it much, but since starting my job as a teacher, I wear it every day. I need to keep good track of time to know where we're at in the lesson and when I need to start wrapping up, in order to not be interrupted mid-sentence by the school bell!
