Trend: Kimono

DSC_0473

I’ve always been reserved about trying out the kimono trend, but when I saw this (On sale for only $10.95 now!!!) on Deb Shops, I knew I had to try it out, especially since festival season is here!  I usually see kimonos paired with shorts, but seeing that I needed to go to work, shorts were not really an option so I decided to pair it with a maxi dress and tied it in the front for a different look.

My students approved. Do you? 😛

You have no idea how long I have been trying to find a hat that I like, as well as one that fits my head in which I have this conceived notion that it is too big and oddly shaped to be stuffed in a hat. Yes, pretty ridiculous, but so true! Luckily I was able to snag this beauty off the sales rack without having to wrestle anyone for it.

All About Chevron

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone’s weekend was relaxing and fun! Mine was pretty low key as I kick started my spring break. Surprising and sadly, I don’t have any trips or adventures planned for this week besides doing some spring cleaning and lesson planning. No worries, vacationing at home is always the best. 🙂

I’m not usually the one to wear an all over pattern, but I’m totally diggin’ this dress. Pin up Darling did it again with the Chevron Bow Back Dress. The shift-style shape paired with the long sleeves and soft fabric makes this dress my go to dress because it really does not need much and the bold pattern says it all. 🙂

And did you notice the back of the dress?

Cloudy with a chance of KompanyKay

            I’m sad to say that I broke my “no shopping” New Years’ Resolution yesterday. But please, hold the disappointment and hear me out. 🙂

This week is spirit week and yesterday was Tie Dye Day and to my dismay, I realized that I did not own a single tie dye item and had absolutely no time to make my own. But I was not going to let this ruin my spirited streak, hence I had to succumb to the pressure and head over to the all-purpose Target.

I don’t mind the sacrifice. All for the sake of the children, right? 🙂

Tough Stuff

I may look like a girly girl on the outside, but deep down I’m a tough cookie with an attitude…at least that’s what my mom says. 😛

I bet you can’t guess what that bracelet is made up of … the INNER TUBE OF A BICYCLE WHEEL.

Yes, you heard me, it’s made from a bicycle wheel. Urban Lace Jewelry thought of a way to turn trash into something absolutely gorgeous. With a variety of designs and sizes to fit your personal style, you can promote eco-friendly stylish jewelry.

For those who don’t believe my claim…

Ways I am more of a “Tough Cookie”
1. I have perfected the evil eye that gives my students the shiver from head to toe.
2. I’ve killed countless of cockroaches.
3. I can hold my bladder for up to 9 hours straight (I know, probably not a healthy thing)
4. I can craft for 8 hours straight while withstanding the pain of paper cuts and hot glue burns.

Have I changed your opinion? 🙂

What makes you tough?
