So, I pinned this image that features two of my favorite fashionistas, Kendi and Audrey. I decided that I really liked the black/white, rust, and camel color combination. I probably should have gone for a darker wash black jean, but I cannot say it overly concerns me. Also, I tried on wide leg jeans at first, but I needed skinny jeans so that I could wear boots in the mucky weather this morning, which, as you can see, turned to 64 degree bliss this afternoon. Maryland, I don't understand you, but I love you anyway. Because of the weather conditions, I combined the exact colors of Kendi's outfit with the silhouette of Audrey's outfit. Plus, in true Danielle form, I added a belt. I do love my tucked in shirts and belts.
In tenth grade today, students read an article from 1964 about Kitty Genovese entitled "Thirty Eight Saw Murder and Didn't Call Police." The kids were appalled that good people did nothing while this woman cried out for help as an attacker murdered her, coming back for her several times. Tomorrow, after watching this clip from the beginning of Boondock Saints, students are going to debate the following topic: Is the indifference of good men the greatest of all evils? At the end of the day, one of my more rambunctious students said, "That's a really good topic. I like it a lot." He also loves Boondock Saints. Win.
In eleventh grade today, my students read an essay by Amy Tan called "Mother Tongue." Several students said how much they enjoyed the essay. One student remarked, "I can really identify with this essay."
Guys, moments like these just define a day in the best of ways.
The sun didn't come out tomorrow because IT CAME OUT TODAY.
Anyway, tomorrow is Rock and Roll themed for Trendy Tuesday. Are you in?
Scarf: Made by Momma, of course! (here is a brighter orange infinity scarf from Target.)
Shirt: New York & Co. last year (It's not really lace but a lace print. Cool, huh? )
Belt: new from The Limited (I was looking for a belt just like this, and I bought it half off!)
Cardigan: Old Navy (recent--exact)
Boots: b.o.c. via DSW
Sunglasses: LOFT (Mrs. Claus bought them for me for Christmas.)
I like allowing wildlife to photobomb. I didn't think you'd mind.
Meet Jeff's shadow and Squirt's noggin'.
