The day I (well, we) bought these lavender jeans, I spotted a gorgeous lavender and coral necklace at J Crew and knew I wanted to pair the pants with this coral blouse. The blouse is quite over-sized, so I tamed it with this tailored jacket.
The earrings match the pants, but the random introduction of mint makes them less matchy-matchy.

What a better way to end the week than with a Trifecta? I brought this scarf home and realized it just happened to have all the same colors are this jacket. Both have insane colors and patterns, but it works because the color palate is identical. The black on black texture pattern of the tee is also crazy, but I treated it like a plain black tee.
This look started as a copycat: one of the other teachers wore a denim shirt with black jeans and a grey cardigan and it was super cute. I started with this denim shirt and my black “magic” pants, but then went rogue and added the fur vest and boots. The neon bracelet adds a pop of color.
This skirt was probably too short for school, but that’s the beauty of the opaque tight. ALL of my skin is totally covered up, so it’s not nearly as scandalous as it could have been. Our school librarian gave this look a hilarious title – and told me to feel free to use it on my blog – but now I can’t remember! Something about a school girl gone bad, but way better than that. Let’s just pretend I remembered and it was awesome.

I finally got a trim! I’m having a bit of first time styling issues with these pics…
I was excited to bust out these new fierce loafers. The ground was still pretty gross outside, but the fabric on these shoes was quite water friendly. It was NOT, however, foot friendly! I got a nasty blister near my heel about halfway through the day and had to bust out the chanclas.
As for the rest of the outfit, I kept it pretty simple with a nudge towards collegiate preppy to match the underlying vibe of the shoes. A chunky bracelet ties the studs back in.
I tried on probably every single blazer/cardigan I own over this dress, and nothing looked right. Either the length was off or it was too baggy for the dress. I got frustrated thinking all I wanted to do was cover my arms (the dress has 3/4 sleeves), and then it hit me: my shrug! I bought this one is high school (you heard me!) and it has been an excellent emergency sleeve piece ever since. If you don’t own one, I highly recommend a simple, snug one like this.
