Mix and Match
I was trying to branch out on this outfit. I have stripes on my skirt, pink polka dots on my shirt, and green shoes. Woah! Somehow, though I think this works.
I bought the blazer a couple years ago, following Clint and Stacey's What Not to Wear advice. However, I have struggled feeling comfortable wearing it because it is not my norm. In this outfit, I feel like it helped pull it all together.
I wore my blazer for Meet the Teacher night as well. For some reason, my principal thinks we all have to wear jeans and a tshirt the first time we make an impression on our parents and students. I don't agree with that, so I put this blazer over the tshirt and wore heels with my jeans. I think it helped me stand out a bit more and definitely was much more authoritative and professional.
Black Blazer: Target $20
Pink Polka Dotted Sleeveless Top: New York and Company $8
Striped Skirt: Target $10
Green Shoes: Twice as Nice (Thrift store in Denton) $9
Any advice on how to take good pictures of oneself? I might need to invest in a full length mirror.
