White, Gray, and Black

Someone in the universe needs to explain something to me. Why is it that when I think I have worn enough layers to work, my classroom is freezing, proving me horribly wrong, but when I wear more layers, thinking my classroom will be freezing, my classroom feels like a sauna? Honestly, if my room had a gender, it would certainly check the "menopausal woman" box. This morning, I pulled together this outfit and loved the combination of neutrals. Could I wear my blazer past the late bell for first period? Nope. I sweat my way out of the blazer before I even gave my first set of students a warm-up (pun unintended). 

I cannot believe my hair still looked presentable even though the patch testing on my back prevented me from showering since Monday morning. Oh, the things I admit to the internets. 

(Forgive the painter's tape. This stupid blue bedroom is going to be the end of me.)

The Look:
Blazer: Kenar via Marshall's (very similar at Target)
Sweater: LOFT (similar 1, similar 2)
Pants: Express (the Columnist, slim fit)
Flats: Merona via Target (exact)


  1. I always had the SAME problem with my classroom's temperature! So annoying.


  2. these are the pants you were talking about? I NEED THEM. you look great - I really really like this outfit.

  3. I am LOVING this outfit! I'm always a fan of a mixed neutrals look, and I really like the details that the sweater and shoes add to the mix! My new classroom is the same way, I'm always dressing in layers that I would be okay taking off through the day; the temperature is all over the place!

  4. Maybe you should wear 20 layers every day and that way you can't possibly be too cold or too hot, right? Anyway, this outfit is superb and your hair is holding up great. Talk about a win-win.

  5. Oh my gosh! My office is the same way! And it changes multiple times throughout the day as well - so irritating! And sometimes I'm sweating but my hands are freezing cold, which is probably the worst. Also, your hair is looking phenom in these pictures. Srsly.


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
