There's just something about this flowing, pink skirt that makes me feel oh so fun and feminine. This ensemble was just perfect for a warm, summer day not too long ago while I did a bit of late summer thrifting :) I've been building up a collection of short sweaters over the past year that are really expanding my horizons. They go swimmingly with my high waisted jeans and vintage skirts! I tend to find a silhouette that I like and then try to wear as many combinations of that silhouette as I can. It has made getting dressed this past summer really easy peasy!

Well yesterday was the first day of school! I have 26 kids compared with my 15 last year. I work afterschool so it's a bit different that teaching in a classroom. I am able to let my students have a bit more freedom, but that sometimes makes it more difficult to reign them in. I didn't realize how soft having the summer off would make me though. Although I kept myself quite busy this summer, I got to make my own schedule and take a rest when I needed. Yesterday I came home completely exhausted and ready to go right to sleep! We'll be thankful for the extra income though with me working again. Here's to another school year!

Also, I feel like I haven't been budgeting my time well enough lately to be able to visit any of your lovely  blogs! I hope to get to that this week and catch up on everything I've missed :) Thanks for sticking with me.

God Bless and I hope you're having a splendid week!

Aw, yay for starting school! I start my Junior year of college tomorrow... I guess I should like, start packing and stuff... hahaha. I'm sure you will be able to reign those kiddies in, though. ;) Thats sure is a lot, though! I wish you luck on your first week!

Oh how fun are those shoes?! I love how the cognac matches your purse, too, and that is one seriously lovely dress. I love that you paired a nice sweater with it... definitely something to think of for colder months for me. :D
