Thanks, wind.

It was a beautiful, warmer day today, but all good things come at a price. Today's price involved the wind. When Jeff picked me up from work and we walked outside, the wind whipped my skirt around, and I yelped, "BAH! Why is it that EVERY time I wear a skirt the wind blows it up!?!?" A mom of one of the kids I teach was sitting in her van...with the windows down. She laughed pretty hysterically. She heard me cry out and probably saw my lady business. Fantastic. 

The inspiration for this outfit came from here

One of my students, granted it was a student who wears athletic gear every day, claimed that this outfit didn't "match." The stylish girls around her disagreed, but now I wonder: is she right? Does this outfit not match? I argued that the colors complement each other, and I didn't want to wear all blue. I wasn't going for the blueberry look. Who's right: the fifteen-year-old or me?

We took 19 pictures; only one turned out, but I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this one in iPhoto. I hope it brings a smile to your face. 

And look at this nonsense: 
Good grief. 
I need to wear lipstick. Or get a tan.

Oh, and just for kicks...would you like to see where my love of stripes originated?

Yep, that's me in the patriotic ensemble. Oh, and my big brother? He's the one rocking a mullet, purple turtleneck, and acid wash jeans. Gotta love the early 90s. 


  1. I think this outfit is adorable and the colors go together too! Love the striped blazer. I have pretty much the same things in my closet except for that blazer.

    1. Well, that just means you need a striped blazer! (I have three. Oops.)

  2. Ugh, I hate windy days if I'm trying to take pictures, but I do love this outfit. I have the same Old Navy skirt!!! :D

    1. It's a pretty great skirt, isn't it? I should nickname it Ol' Faithful. It's hung around for quite sometime.


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
