Fashionistas and Back-to-School-ers,
Welcome back to “My Fashion Haus” for a peek at what I wore the first day of school. Yup, you heard-well, read-right. I went back to school yesterday. I had the good fortune of being called for another long-term library sub job. And coincidentally (although you know what I say about coincidences), it is back at the school where I first worked in El Paso. Jefferson High School. Home of the Silver Foxes. Or as it is affectionately called former foxes “La Jeff”.
I was excited to plan my back-to-school outfit. I laid it out the night before (ok, several nights before and visited it every night). Even broke out my new Sony camera to take pics of the pieces in a flat layout. And then had my Prince help me learn how to use my iPhone as a remote for the camera. I was excited.
So enough of my blabbering. Let me climb up on this cat walk and strut my stuff.
That’s a whole lotta color going on, huh? Kind of like a pitcher of tropical punch. Or a bowl of fruit cocktail. Felt like I was wearing a vacation.
My cold-shoulder top is from Boston Proper. Loft Outlet ankle pants. Two Miche purses. “Candie’s” sandals from Kohl’s and DSW “Mix No. 6” pink flats. My tassel necklace is from Charming Charlie.
Reminds me of this little guy from my childhood. How’d you like a nice Hawaiian punch?
There you go! Tutti-frutti fun.
I could hardly wait to wear it. But was so scared my cold-shoulder top wouldn’t fit. So waited until the morning of the first day of school before trying it on. Not sure what I would have done if it didn’t fit. Hadn’t put together a Plan B. But it fit, it fit!!
Hey, wait a sec…those aren’t the shoes in my flat layout. What the????
Actually, I decided to wear heels on my first day back to work. Wanted to look like a fancy lady. And chose peep-toe pumps because I had this cute pedicure going on.
Please excuse my splayed toes…at least they aren’t webbed in-between. Try to focus on those cute little flowers complete with a diamonds in the center.
And an up-close photo of the other end.
Finally, after owning my camera for about three months, I am learning to use it. Thanks to my PC’s patient help. Now I am able to move my fashion haus outdoors.
How ’bout that sassy cold-shoulder? Hubba, hubba, huh?
Going to have to practice hiding the iPhone that I am using as a remote for my camera. It took three tries to get this picture with the iPhone out of sight and me standing upright, looking at the camera. But I ask you again, how ’bout that cold-shoulder? And there’s a matching one on the other side.
Have you tried baring your shoulders this summer? Or do you have a bright floral top you’d like to share? If so, link up with us on The Blended Blog or post a pic on Instagram using #theblendedblogstyle.
Tuesday’s second day of school outfit was slightly less dressy and today, it’s jeans and tennies. But no matter what I am wearing, I am glad to be back to work among books and babies.
hApPy hUmP DaY, friends!
Hugs and kisses,
