Its a new year, and we were back in school on the 2nd. In SF, we usually got a full 2 weeks off for winter holiday. Here in NY, it’s a “measly” but well enjoyed week and a half. Woe is me. I was ready to be back with my kids, and more than ready to flex my humor bone. B laughs at
me my jokes all the time usually. The only time I ever hear crickets in my class is when I make a silly science pun. It’s a good thing that I like poop and fart jokes too otherwise I’d never get a reaction out of them. So I decided to end the first week back with a bang of a t-shirt. I was breaking the unspoken “teacher professional” dress code at my school by wearing a t-shirt. gasp! with jeans. double gasp! None of my professionally dressed colleagues said anything, and I got many chuckles from the kids, so whateves.
This t-shirt is pretty old. So is the cardigan which is now half the size it used to be thanks to many rounds of washing (everything shrinks for me, even when washed strictly in cold water and air dried). What is new are the rain booties. We all know I have a thing for booties, and with the harsh Brooklyn weather combined with my daily trek to/from school, I figured I could justify adding a pair of weather proof booties to my collection. Also, LL Bean had a 30% off Bean boots promotion one of the days leading up to Christmas, so I jumped on it. So cute and so New England-ish, no?
cardigan: super old from therapy in SF – tshirt: loyal army – high waisted jeans: bdg – boots: ll bean – necklace: unicorn crafts – lipstick: coral colours #867, send from australia by B’s mom (it’s pretty awesome)
Last bit – I’m a bread making machine lately since B got me a cast iron dutch oven for christmas. The easiest classic recipe ever, though I’m on the lookout for flavor tinkering changes (hello sourdough starter!!!). It’s my cheat day today so I plan on eating this entire loaf.
