Lesson Learned: Dated Shoes

 Dress - Loft
Cardigan - Loft
Green Belt - Express
Orange/Green Shoes - oldies


The shoes that I'm wearing today haven't been worn in soooo many years.  Actually, these shoes are a little older than the sixth graders that I teach.  Which, I guess, is obvious because I actually had one student ask me,

"Mrs. long have you had those shoes?"

Before I could even answer, I busted out laughing.  Huh.  I personally don't think that these shoes look that dated.  But, apparently, they look older than they are.  Wait.  I take that back.  Apparently, they look older than I am:

Me (responding to "inquisitive" student):  " long do you think I've had them?"

Inquisitive Student:  "I don't know...since, like, 1970."

Gotta love the kids.


  1. Whaaat? I don't think they look dated either. But I'm also not very up on what passes for fashion in the sixth-grader crowd either. :)
