What I'm Wearing - Bye Bye Kiddos!

I have not seen a student in a week! So even though I've been working, I've been dressed down like you wouldn't believe. Packing my room, unairconditioned faculty meetings, and curriculum writing are not cause for dressing up - they're cause for being cool & comfy. Many of my colleagues have been living in running shorts & t-shirts for the past week, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It must be the blogger in me, because even though I know I can look like a total slob, I just can't. 

Let's start with today's outfit. I'm headed into work for a few, but I also have a bunch of errands to run. It's Ella's one day a week at the babysitter, so I'm going to savor every moment of alone time. She's all mine the rest of the week :) I'm wearing my slouchy tee from T.J. Maxx & my lace shorts from Kiki LaRue. I strongly advise that you go up a size in these shorts. I'm in a medium & they fit perfectly. Also - they have an elastic waste - making them the comfiest shorts you'll ever own. 

Thursday was hot as balls... I dressed appropriately for it, keeping it simple in a tank & shorts. Keep in mind that this is a 6:30 am photo - my hair was in a top knot by 9.

This is probably my favorite outfit of the week. I was so excited when my tank top from Hello Apparel arrived in the mail. I bought it to support the Oklahoma tornado victims & I'm in love with it. I bought a medium & love that it's so slouchy. I paired it with my favorite denim cutoffs & a cardigan because I knew I'd be in and out of AC. Then, I added pearl studs & my Coach watch to pull it together just a little bit more.

Teachers only worked a half day on Friday, which means we spent the afternoon drinking. I'm not going into details on how that ended for me. I'm just going to tell you that this dress is so comfortable you sleep in it all night if you have to. 
maxi - J.Crew Factory // watch - Coach // sandals - AE
I love that this maxi isn't too long - I'm only 5'4", so most maxis have to be hemmed for me. This required no work at all though! It's also red, white, and blue - so I plan to wear it on the 4th, another holiday I may need to sleep in it for. 

Today I'm linking up with... 


  1. Love all of your outfits! I've seen that OK tank all over and it's so cute. Such a great cause.


  2. that maxi dress is so cute!

  3. Love your maxi! I wish I could wear a tube maxi too...I'm not gifted with big ones up there so I tend to feel like tube tops will just slide! But it looks great on you with your hair up. :)


  4. I ADORE the lace shorts!! And LOVE that you still get "Dressed" I'm EXACTLY the same...running shorts and t-shirts are for bed - LOL!!
