"Bust out some vintage!"

I'll try to keep this post short and sweet since I have tons of homework, and
should be doing it instead of blogging **shh...dont' tell hubby** I have been
so behind on the 30 for 30 I sound like a broken record now a days. So
I'm posting two outfits today, don't hate, what I wore yesterday and today.
I promise to redeem myself, just you wait and see! But before I sign off for the
evening I'd like to share a bit of Kendra fashion philosophy: when putting an
outfit together, it's not complete until you "Bust out some vintage!"
Nighty Nite!

Shirt: Khols, Skirt: AE, Tights:old?, Shoes:Thrifted, Purse: BUSTED OUT VINTAGE

Blazer: BUSTED OUT VINTAGE, Shirt: Boutique, Jeans: Lucky, Boots: FF, Hat: Gift(Etsy)

Looks like pie

I'm a little behind on Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge, like 11 days behind *blush*,
and it's posing to be that much harder after eating a months caloric intake
in the space of 2 days! (yes we had a second thanksgiving feast yesterday for
a family members birthday celebration...can I get an AMEN!)

A few days of non-stop Jazzercise and maybe I can fit back into
my clothes, there's the real challenge, remixing is starting to look like pie...
well everything looks like pie today... maybe I'm hallucinating?
Better go take a nap and sleep this one off;)
Happy Saturday!!

New shoes

I finally got my new shoes in the mail today they are
sooooo comfortable, like walking on marshmellows!
New shoes make me smile:) Especailly when
they're free! Hubby said they would just end
up in my mound O' shoes pile. So what if they
do, I love my shoe pile!!
I feel so behind on my 30 for 30 outfits!! I'm only on #3 and
still 27 more to go! I haven't been taking pics because by the
time I get home from school and work the beautiful sunlight
has vanished:( My hubby suggested I set up a studio in the
spare room. For the time being this will have to do!

Let's paint the town.....or not

Ok... so I haven't been feelin so hot lately. I have like zero energy.
I literally had to pull myself out of bed and force myself to dress
up so my day would seem less depressing. I got some kind of bug
from the kiddos!
I love working with them...I just hate that I always
get their lovely germs;) Hubby wants to do something tonight but all
I feel like doing is curling up in a ball and watching chic flicks. I wish
I felt better so we could paint the town togetha! I'm dressed for a
fancy date but I just can't get myself past that gate!

Hope your Saturday
is sunnier than mine :(

Sometimes you gotta give em' the look

My early morning was spent in a third grade classroom (enter the smell of
stale breath and peanut butter). As part of my never ending pursuit for a college
degree I am entertained by 22 little munchkins who think they're 16.
To my surprise they had a substitute for the very first time,"Heaven help the
old lady!", I thought to myself as I stepped through the door. But boy was I in
for a sassy treat! This lady knew how to put the smack down on these kids. Left
and right she spit out orders like a general at boot camp. At first I was a bit
taken a back....I'm mostly a gentle hearted young woman and thought it to
be a bit harsh. Then a light went off, and I realized she might be on to something!!

So I decided to try out a wee experiment. The lovely rascal who ALWAYS gives me
a hard time in the class was my subject. The substitute barked at him..."sit down young
man!" To which he ignored. I walked up to him...cleared my throat and barked "sit down!"
To which he replied snottily (I think I just made up a new word) "WHY??" And then I
gave him the know the one that let's booger eaters know who's boss! He
sat down faster than green grass through a goose! Right then and there I
learned... sometimes you just gotta give em' the look ;) I think I might be gettin'
the hang of this teacher thing?

30 for 30 Remix run down

So I've decided to join in the 30 for 30 challenge created by the lovely Kendi from Kendi Everday! She writes a witty little style blog I just can't seem to get enough should check it out now:) The challenge she presents is to pick 30 items from your closet...yes only 30! This includes shoes, tops, dresses, skirts, pants....etc. The only things not included are extra trimmins' like on your thanksgiving day turkey! These items would include things such as jewelry, tights, and even coats! The trick behind it all is to presevere and be creative with what you already have...and no shopping for 30 days!!
