Busy week

Last week was super busy. I did a three day art show ( I make handbound notebooks/journals/sketchbooks) at the mall last weekend and I worked every night after work until bedtime getting more books make and getting ready for the show.

So, I tried to remember to take pictures, but a few outfits fell through the cracks. Also, yay for bright yellow coats. SO.FUN. Ill start recent and go backwards.


Flats: Wet Seal
Skirt: H&M (runs really small, in my opinion)
Top: forever 21
Coat: Sears Jr. Dept
Necklace: Leather, handmade, off Etsy

Somehow that last photo keeps turning when I upload it, I can't get it to go the right way. Oh well. This skirt was a hit at work. I got several comments, some people asked if I made it (being the art teacher and all, since it looks "painted") A kindergarten student told me she thought I looked like a ballerina. My coworker at lunch came up behind me while I was at the microwave and exclaimed "look how tiny she is!"

My coworkers are always making comments about my tiny frame. The funny part is that this skirt fit really small. Maybe it's meant to be short and high waisted, but I couldn't even get my size zipped when it was way high at the smallest part of my waist. I had to go up 2 sizes to get it to fit what I thought was correctly.

Also, I LOVE my new necklace, but I think the specialness of it got lost with the skirt today. I'll have to try it again where it can stand out more.

Boots: Bergners
Skinny Jeans: Love Culture
Cardigan: Old Navy
Scarf: A mall in London

  Hello scarf. Also, thanks world for the awesome non frizzy hair day!

This is the outfit I wore Saturday during my art show. There are my books! I sell them online too at  There I am rockin the yellow coat. Don't mind the mess on my floor. Also, I LOVE the whole boots thing. And I also found a great pair of skinnies at the mall, this new store called LoveCulture. They also came with a nice brown belt. They are not plastered on so tight, they actually fit comfortably at the waist, but they are tight through the knee so they aren't all bunchy with boots. YAY!

 Jeans: SO via Kohls
Maroon Tank and Brown Cardi: Both H&M
Necklace: Forever 21
Purse: Burlington Coat Factory

This outfit screamed fall with all the brown. I think this one is also a winner. I'm a big fan. Now, if I paired it with skinnies and my brown boots....ahhh yes. Must try it!

 Sneakers: Sketchers
Pants: Kohls
Top: Banana Republic Outlet
Cardigan: JCPenney
Necklace: NY and CO

This outfit seems a little big/too flowy. Kinda looks too baggy. Maybe I need to belt it? Although I feel like this long cardigan looks weird with a belt because the long bits point/bunch weirdly.

Also, that's my "I need to put my hair up but don't have a hairtie" solution I do all. the.time. at work. It's kinda reminiscent of the whole hair chopsticks thing. The kiddos really get a kick out of it. Miss V, there's a pencil in your hair! ( Yes I know, I put it there thanks. Hah)

Sneakers: Sketchers
Pants: Kohls
Top: H&M I think
Scarf: TJmaxx
Ring: Target

 Love love love everything about this. Stripes. Great fit. Bold pop of color. Hair out of my face. Scarf all nice and cozy.

Sneakers: Sketchers
Pants: Kohls
Sweater: Forever 21
Necklace: NY and Co

And there we have it. I really like all of these outfits alot! Also, I have been doing pretty good and wearing my hair's really been cooperating lately. Woot for nice curls and good outfits!

Also, linking up with Molly for YOLO Mondays. Love her!  Leave a comment please! I'd love some feedback!!
