Special Delivery

Pink Cardigan - Banana Republic
Scarf - from my mom
Top - Loft
Pants - Express
Shoes - Target

I'd like to deliver some advice... juuuuust for you:

Whenever you get dressed in a pair of pants that are too big and sag in the waist, don't use a large safety pin in the front in order to hold those pants up.

Why, you ask?

Cuz wearing pants that are saggy +

Constant fumbling with your, uh, lower abdomen area +

Not a good look in the "frontal-nether-regions"

Trust me...Not good at all.  I mean, every time I stood up, it was like I was...standing up.  And you can only try to make so many adjustments in front of a bunch of twelve-year olds before you start to look suspicious!

So, anyway, now that you've received my package, please do not return to sender, 'kay?

A Big Deal (Part 2 of 3)

Navy striped dress-disguised-as-a-tee - Forever 21
Emerald Green Silk Skirt - Talbots (TJ Maxx)
Shoes- Calvin Klein (DSW)
Belt - Goodwill
Necklace - Talbots

So...last week, I posted about this Talbots skirt that I coveted last summer and was fated to meet again a few weeks ago.  And I teased y'all with another great Talbots a la TJ Maxx find....

and here it is!

This green silk skirt was one that I also tried, twirled, and tempted myself with at the end of last summer.  Even when it was on sale, it was still too much for my debit card.

But Enter TJ Maxx Here.

And a price tag of $14.99.

And another great big deal for me!

(by the way, another great find for me was this striped mini dress from F21 for only $10!  I would have flashed a peek of the dress underneath my skirt, but I'm not like that...)

(...okay, actually, I am like that...I just really forgot to take the picture.)  ;)

Today's Lesson: Learn the Lingo

Top - NY&Co (Marshall's)
Skirt - Forever 21
Shoes - Nine West (Ross)
Earrings - Forever 21
Ring - Loft

 Apparently, I'm not as hip as I thought I was.

Today, with one of my classes, I was trying to be humorous (again, my downfall) and, while doing my "homemade-JJ Evans- jive-turkey- swagger-walk" across the room, I made the statement (referring to the narrator of the story that we were reading) that,

"He wanted to have a l'il shorty by his side."

Unanimously, the crowd went wild.

Not because they appreciated my hip-ness.

But because I obivously had none.

I was promptly and emphatically corrected on my mispronunciation of the term "shawty". 

And what really surprised me was that almost every single student knew the "correct" way to pronounce this slang term (how could they know and I not know!?), and they were serious about correcting me.

So, what can I say?  This English-teacher-shawty stands corrected.

Observe This

Dress - Dillard's
Cardigan - Loft
Belt - Gap
Shoes - BCBG (DSW)

1.  A student who outright refuses to do work...and almost becomes confrontational.
2.  A story that we read aloud and that has several errors that require me to actually stop several times and "jigsaw puzzle" the parts of the story just to get through it.
3.  Another student who decides to make some kind of loud, unrecognizable noise while I'm speaking.
4.  Not much air conditioning.

What a great class period...
especially when there is an important guest present to observe your classroom...right?

Linen Button-down - Calvin Klein (TJ Maxx)
Pants - The Limited
Belt - Forever 21
Shoes - from some store years ago

Yes...I do know how to spell correctly. (I mean, I am an English teacher...geez! But I guess I should just stick to my day job and quit trying to be cute and funny.)

Anyway, the point of the title "Doublue" was to express my love for this linen, blue button-down!  I love it so much so that I had to wear it again...two days after the first time that I wore it.  (see Sunday's post)

Unless it's, like, a pair of jeans on the weekend, rarely do I wear the same piece twice in a very short time span...not even two weeks after, much less two days!

But this time...

I don't give a shi(r)t.

A Big Deal, Part 1 of 3

Navy Tee - Gap
Navy Striped Skirt - Talbots (TJ Maxx)
Shoes - Michael Kors (Dillards)
Okay, so last summer, I actually purchased this skirt.
And then I returned it...
but only because the size that I purchased was a little too tight and not really because it cost over $60.

Now, fast forward to this past weekend.  I was at the TJ Maxx near my house, and was surprised at the number of items from Talbots that I saw from the last couple of seasons (well, surprised and excited!).  But you'll have to wait for those little pieces.

Yesterday, on my way home from visiting my mom, I was dealing with a devil on my shoulder.  He kept telling me that I should stop in at the TJ Maxx I recently discovered that is en route from there.  He kept saying that there could be more items from Talbots that didn't make it to my local store.  He kept saying that I could be missing that one item.  He kept saying that it was only fair that I check out what they have.

So I gave in.

And as soon as I walked into the petite's section, there was this skirt.

And it was $14.99.

And I realized that that l'il devil was really an angel in disguise.
