How I wore it: it ain't easy being green

Last weekend, I received an order from Old Navy (maternity) and was proud of myself for wearing every single item on the same day. Yesterday (Monday) I decided to bust out the more colorful aspect of the order and blind my students' retinas. Check it:

Yay for bright colors and stumpifying jeans/mocs combos! The shirt would've been perfect, had the weather not warmed up again and my classrooms not been RIDICULOUSLY over warm. I sweat through it by the middle of the first block. Don't you love hearing those little details about me?

The other thing I did over the weekend was, as I said in the last entry, to finally get my hair trimmed. I told my hairdresser (Cheryl, my hair guru) that I wanted to grow my hair out, but had no preference over how it grew, as long as it grew. So she kept a lot of length, but got rid of a lot of bulk (and mullet! And cowlicks!). No one outside of my husband noticed except for one shy ninth-grade boy whose voice I rarely hear in Spanish class. Fourteen-year-old boys can be adorable, no? Anyway, I'm thrilled with the haircut and have been feeling much better about myself than I have in the recent past. 

Look at that lack of mullet and cowlicks! Look at those perfectly formed and non-crazily-curling sideburns! Cheryl is indeed a goddess.

Now I must be off. IFC is playing an 'Arrested Development' marathon - it's like they know us!

  1. Green is a very good color for you. Lots of colors look nice on you, but this definitely stood out. Yes. Your hair also looks great, yay for no more mullet! (my bff keeps ending up with one, too)
