Help out my student because you have a heart.

I do my best to provide you with a title catchy enough that'll lure you here, sometimes under false pretenses. Okay. Maybe not. But it's fun to sound a little dangerous like a man-hating Lifetime movie by saying "under false pretenses." Anyway, let's move on from my creepiness and talk about how you can help out one of my students. (Originally, I was going to write "let's move on from my creepiness and talk about one of my students." I then realized that actually heightened the creepiness.)

Seriously. Move on, Wo.

One of my juniors has a style blog, and gave it the cutest name, too. You'll have to check out her blog to see what I mean. Anyway, she entered a Teen Vogue contest to score a "blogger to watch" feature, and it would be super dee duper if you voted for her! Go here and vote for her by clicking on the heart in the upper left corner of the picture. (You have to hover over the corner in order for the heart to appear.) To see the blog post she entered and read about KFC's chicken corsage (it's a thing), go here. Also, her about me section will melt your heart with its sweetness. (I'm not just saying that because I'm biased as her English teacher.)

Speaking of teaching, I had a slip of the tongue during first period today. I meant to tell my sophomores that they should spitball ideas with the people at their table. Instead, I told them to freeball it. Not at all the same thing. Luckily, they were too clueless, tired, or embarrassed to acknowledge the blunder.

The Look
Shirt: Old Navy
Cardigan: Express (OLD)
Skirt: LOFT via thredUP
Shoes: J.Crew Factory

pardon my wrinkles.

I also wore the floral shirt this way:

And the cardigan this way...

Oh, and this way...

(The skirt is pretty new, so it hasn't been worn more than once. However, I love the fit AND the pockets, so you'll see it again.)


  1. Cute combo! That free all it comment is priceless.

  2. Love this outfit! I think I had that skirt-- it fit so great in the fitting room, but gave me a bulge when I sat down. Awkward. Good luck to your student!

  4. Voted! Looks like you have a gem of a student! Do you talk to her about your style blog? I think I would be mortified if my students found mine. Haha.

  5. Done and done! I can't believe you said that to your students and they didn't even notice. I didn't know what that word meant til last year, ha ha!

  6. Great outfits!
