How I wore it: something about this place

Folks, I took an hour-long nap on a Friday night, my throat is raspy as hell, and I've slept about eight hours every night: it must be the end of my first full week of work! The good news is that it's going well. The bad news is that I don't know how I'll ever feel rested again. Maybe during maternity leave ... oh, wait.

Today the weather changed drastically from the humid and hot 80 degrees Fahrenheit that we'd been experiencing down to the high 50s and low 60s. And boy did we feel it... I was happy because a) I could stop flashing my tank tops/bra straps to my high school students, and b) I'd been wanting to wear the outfit I ended up wearing for about three weeks beforehand; you see, I went to a A Pea in the Pod maternity store some weeks ago and bought three really pretty things. Clothes that I liked so much that I considered wanting to wear them when I'm not pregnant, although I'll probably be sick of them in a few months. That being said, I loved today's outfit and wouldn't be blameworthy, I don't think, if I chose to wear it again tomorrow to visit family in Connecticut:

I felt like a million bucks in this outfit. I love corduroy, I love mustard corduroy, and I love grey-based tunic tops, maternity or no. I wish I didn't have to constantly cuff the pants, but they are pretty long and I worry about tripping and hurting the crap out of my face... 

... So, yeah, I have the feeling that this outfit is gonna be a staple in the next few months...

Grey striped top: A Pea in the Pod
Corduroy pants: A Pea in the Pod
Mustard flats: Nine West, by way of DSW, remixed


  1. Love the top. Horizontal stripes are a favorite of mine (the fashion police says I should be staying faaaaar away, but no one has arrested me yet)

    Where is CT is your family? Not the town of course (don't want me stalking your loved ones ;P) but are they northern/southern/easter/western? I always get curious about other CT-ians (I don't even know if that's what we're called)

  2. I LOVE horizontal stripes too, however "unflattering" they're supposed to be. I love them more than ever now. Yay!

    My brother moved to - I guess the southeastern? (New Haven county) part of CT about, oh, 11 or 12 years ago, so I've been visiting him there for quite some time now... Both my brother and I became New Englanders, but we're born and raised New Yorkers (and I would leave MA for NY in a minute, if it were feasible...)!

  3. Yeah, so...BEST OUTFIT EVER. I love this! I think I'm kind of okay with you wearing this everyday. :)

  4. Yay, Clare! I hope my students agree with you! Cuz they're gonna see it often...
