He doesn't have a wife

 I was watching a A Hard Day's Night with my dad a few days ago, and was inspired by the actor playing the video director's fuzzy sweater.

I was compelled to stand over this shiny ball, as if I had just birthed it. IDK guys. I hope you like my ripped jeans look. I got them a few weeks ago because I went into the Aerie store at Towson mall to  find some undies, cause you can't buy undies at the thrift store (Ok, you can, but I don't) and the helpful salesperson told me that they had jeggings on sale! These are ankle jeggings, but I am short, so they are just normal jeggings for me. They are surprisingly jeanlike for jeggings! Anyway, this is the first pair of jeans I have had in a long time, and I love them! I was totally anti-jeans until jegging this came around. I ordered another pair in white from their website because I like these so much, where I got an extra 20% off the clearance price. Yay! And free shipping! Yay!

Find your backbend.

Check out my puffball clip on earrings. They are real mink.

These shoes are my classy jellies.

 It's spring break, but I still had to get dressed and go to my internship (although it is really a class) at an elementary school, so I had to look teacherly.

But I still had to be able to go on the playground. So I pulled out the cowgirl boots. I used to kind of collect cowgirl boots when I was in 7th and 8th grade and I thought they were really cool. My feet are still a size 8, so I think it is time to pull them back out.

I did not even wear tights today.

After some super serious rain last night, the sun has come out! It is beautiful! It was so sunny out that even though gas costs $3.45 a gallon at the cheapest station, and I stepped in a giant puddle while paying $3.45 for gas, it was still a good day. It is so sunny out that my pictures are so washed out that my white flats look actually white! (They are kind of dirty. See: Puddle)
I am really into button down shirts right now, even though I am pretty sure they make me look both really young and kind of dowdy at the same time.
That's ok, though, because I felt cool.

Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for Target via Goodwill in Pittsburgh about 4 years ago
Skirt: Thrift store, no brand. It says dry clean only, but I don't believe it! I left it at my boyfriend's once and he washed it for me, and it turned out fine.
Shirt: Thrift store, Ann Taylor petite

I am wearing a leopard shirt for Sheila Ephemera's Leopard Week. Ya'll may notice that, like, half of my posts are challenges. Challenges motivate me, folks! Otherwise I will say, "Should I go out and take picture of my outfit today?" and the answer will be "'s so cold out today," But I had to wear leopard by the end of the week! I will probably be doing it tomorrow, too. Leopard is one of my favorite colors. I felt like such a baller in this outfit. Yesterday was sunglasses day at the school I intern at, and I felt like James Dean walking around all day in sunglasses. I meant to get a sunglasses photo, but I only got this photo before my camera died, and was not able to find working batteries until today. So this is the only documentation EVER of this outfit (although I realize it is kind of dowdy...I felt really cool wearing pants. I also had giant wooden earrings, that I will need to get a better photo of at a later date. Giant earrings always make me feel awesome, because it is such a novel sensation, because it is so hard to find giant clip on earrings!)

Also, please notice my shoes! They are kind of tan and boring, but they are THE best comfy heels. No, I am not being paid. I found a pair of character shoes in 7th grade at the Red, White and Blue thrift store in Pittsburgh that was pretty much the only place I ever shopped growing up, and was converted. I have been buying the same shoes since then. I usually pay full price for them, because I NEED THEM. My life will not go on without my boring comfy tan dance shoes. But I found these ones at Value Village during the President's Day sale, so they were only three dollars! And I usually pay sixty for them! Such a score.

Model Behavior

It seems I have missed Wendy's post on red legs, but I wanted to join in! I am doing the Wendy Brandes pose to make up for my lateness!

Wendy only has one pose, but though I should try a few out, as it seems most fashion bloggers have many. I am actually going to start doing yoga on Tuesday, in an effort to learn more poses and become a better fashion blogger. As these photos evidence, I am not yet very talented at posing.
With time, I will improve at looking as if I have been caught off guard in my natural environment when the self-timer goes off.

French schoolgirl

This is my main striped shirt, and it is actually a dress. The skirt is from a school uniform, actually. I wore this to my second day of internship, because the kids were distracted my all my jewelry and bright colors on the first day of internship.

I am obviously the worst blogger ever, because I do not know how to turn these photos. They were right side up when I saved the files, but blogger will not let me put them that way. Oh well, at least all the photos are the same width today! I hear that is important. Small victories.
