Where: A long day at school, plus a few hours of planning after school, then a marathon race to Nordstrom, the grocery store and then off to Wine Club with my girlfriends. I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday!
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Details: Today was a long day, but a good one. The kids and I got a lot done in class and their essays are simply marvelous. Today I came up with a great project to make out of the essays and can’t wait to put it into action. Fridays always go quickly because the schedule is busy and shorter than usual. I can’t wait for my lazy weekend to arrive!
Today I knew I wanted to wear this fun dress in a different way. I started with my trusty jean jacket and oxfords, but felt like it was a repeat of Sunday with a different dress. I switched to the booties which made me think of a pair of patterned tights I hadn’t worn in ages. Alas, I got a massive run at the end of the school day. Drat.
With Wine Club on the horizon I knew I wanted to jet over to Nordy’s for a replacement. Nothing even remotely close was in stock so I went with this pair on a whim (plus a couple other fun things). Ultimately they were just okay, but turned to depressing when they also ran a little hole. Sometimes that’s just how it goes. The best laid plans don’t always turn out as adorable or as durable as you’d like. Luckily Nordstrom has a very liberal return policy.
