Sorry for the brief sojourn yesterday. It’s been pouring cats and dogs and a little hard to take photos this week. I’m hoping this major grey cloud cover will blow away by this afternoon so I can get in another outfit for tomorrow. It’s also Curriculum Night at school Thursday so I’ve been prepping a little for that in addition to my regular duties. I’m happy to say nearly everything is done sans one adorable art project I’ll be doing with the kids today and a little group effort room cleaning. Maybe I’ll finally take some photos of my classroom to share here, too!  I heart teaching, you guys. It seriously is the best, even when it’s challenging and busy and crazy at times. I love what I do.

This outfit is actually from last week but somehow never made it onto the blog. I picked up these pants at Nordstrom Rack last year and fell in love. They remind me of animal print, but are actually some sort of watercolor design. Like a faux animal print, I suppose. I’ve worn them a million times but this is another example of an item that somehow hasn’t made it onto the blog until today. I usually save these heeled booties for dresses, but I’m kind of liking them with this outfit. And while I’m pining away for a real leather jacket, this faux leather from Target fits the bill just fine.
