Today was the first day back from our week long Thanksgiving Break. I was NOT ready to come back – a week of lounging around the house stuffing my face wasn’t nearly enough! It was rough getting back into the groove today and by the time my last section rolled around, my patience had gone out the window. Normally, I love my 6th period – they’re a rowdy, noisy, chatty bunch who as a whole are an awesome group of kids. Sometimes, their shenanigans can get to me and push all my buttons all at the same time. Today was one of those days and I got angry…but now I feel bad for getting angry. They’re teenagers who just have a harder time focusing on Biology after they’ve already been in school for 6 hours (kids here have 8 hour school days — I think it’s ridiculous). I should have kept calm and…let them be teenagers.
These booties are from Zara, a few years ago. They’re pretty bad-ass, and I got many compliments on them today from students and adults alike. I don’t wear them that often, for no good reason at all. My top is from COS, a H&M spin off with a store in Manhattan and is also available online in the US. I picked this one up over the summer while visiting New York. I love the shape since it has so much room in the belly area but is still fitted around the shoulders (a trapeze top?). The fabric is also a perfectly drapey material. Lastly, I got a technology hand-me-down from B, his Pebble watch. Winning.
