I don’t care what my husband says; teachers need Spring Break.
Oh, I’m not gonna bore you with reasons and justifications – every profession has its lows and pitfalls. Let’s just say that by the time March rolls around, the honeymoon period has long passed and familiarity breeds contempt and all that, so both the students and I need a hiatus from each other.
Not even a cute outfit can save me from my general malaise, and this outfit is pretty darned cute. The tee is courtesy of the same eBay seller I got this from, and it’s the exact same size and the exact same fabric. So I really don’t know why I look puffier. (Wait, I know. Never mind…)
(I know, I know. I’m not supposed to shop indiscriminately. But if I’m already certain of the quality and I feel happy in them, shouldn’t I grab some more while the grabbing’s good? OMGosh – I am a hoarder! I really need to commit to a shopping plan, don’t I?)
Okay, back to the outfit…
The red/orange combo was quite surprising. I knew they were analogous on the color wheel but I’d not had the opportunity to play with them as such, far preferring complementary color pairings. I must admit that it’s pleasing to the eye. I also like how the statement necklace plays on the nature motif – doesn’t it look vaguely floral to you? – and the wedges do a lot to elongate my leg.
So, yeah. Cute outfit. Dare I say, fancy? I still feel meh, though. Perhaps I should just plan for a mental health day, call it in, then luxuriate in a pedi/massage experience.
