What the Teacher Wore

OK I know - I've been absolutely terrible about blogging and everything this month - and here is why: my hubs has been working nights since Oct. 1 which really throws off my schedule.  Plus I am just super tired!

You can link-up at the bottom!

So here is what I have been wearing:

Monday September 29
Red Maxi Skirt - Forever 21
Black Long-Sleeved Top - by Sonoma at Kohl's
Gray and Black Leopard Print Scarf - by Apt. 9 at Kohl's

Tuesday September 30
I forgot to post this outfit to instagram which is a big bummer cuz it's cute!
Boots - by Candies at Kohl's
Boot Socks - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Leggings - by VeraWang at Kohl's
Teal Turtleneck - by Sonoma at Kohl's 
Long Open Front Cardigan - by Croft and Barrow at Kohl's
Scarf - by me! It is a black and teal zebra print on a khaki background.

Wednesday October 30
Black Wide-Leg Pants - by Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's (yes I have many pairs of these- I wear them often)
Floral Tank - by Lauren Conrad at Kohl's
Fly Away Cardigan - by Sonoma at Kohl's

Thursday October 2
Kahki Trousers - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Gray Long-Sleeved Top - by Sonoma at Kohl's
Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
This is a color combo I would normally never wear - but the scarf what a khaki color with a silver accent - I ended up loving this outfit

Friday October 3
Jeans - by VeraWang at Kohl's
Blue Floral Top - by Lauren Conrad at Kohl's (I have this shirt in creme and mauve too!)
White Pashmina Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's - they have these each year in great colors, they drape so nicely!

Monday October 6
there were no creative outfit juices this day!
Gray Corduroy - by Sonoma at Kohl's
Tunic-Length Black Turtleneck - by NY&Company
Scarf - by me!

Tuesday October 7 - I didn't make it to school this day due to a mix-up in appointments at the doctor's office and didn't get a picture

Wednesday October 8
I still wasn't feeling overly creative - but a bit more bold.
Black Wide-Leg Pants - by Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's
Red Sweater - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Scarf - by me!

Thursday October 9
I was feeling more fashionable this day.
Boots - by Candies at Kohl's
Sweater Tights - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Jean Skirt - by Access at Kohl's
Turtleneck Sweater - by ? at ? (can't remember and it's burried in the laundry)
Cream Pashmina Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's

Friday October 10
It was picture day - so you can't tell but I did my hair.
(I've avoided getting my picture taken for the 5 years I've been teaching - but this year I couldn't)
Jeans - by Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's
Black Zip-Up Fleece - by TekGear at Kohl's
Scarf - from my sister - purchased in Italy

Monday October 13 - no school (I wore pajamas all day!)
Tuesday October 14 - I FORGOT!

Wednesday October 15
I discovered #pinneditspinnedit
Check out the instagram and pinterest!
Each week she posts a calendar of outfit pins and they can also be found on her pinterest page (for better non-fuzzy photos for comparison)
Sandals - from TJ Maxx or Marshall's (can't remember) it was actually warm enough for sandals!
Tunic Length Short Sleeved Black Sweater - by NY&Company
Pink and Green Leopard Print Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's

So I don't have bright green pants but the skirt worked, and I don't have a button down shirt to wear under a sweater and as previously discussed I don't do statement necklaces.  I haven't worn this scarf yet despite having it for a while so this #pinneditspinnedit was the perfect opportunity!

Thursday October 16
Trousers - by Axcess at Kohl's
Black Rib Tank - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Gray Fly Away Cardigan - by Lauren Conrad at Kohl's
Red Pashmina Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's

Ok - so this pin doesn't strike me as comfortable.  Plus I don't have a gray dress.  But I think I pulled it off!

Friday October 17
Boots - by Candies at Kohl's
Boot Socks - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Leggings - by VeraWang at Kohl's
Animal Print Top - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Dolman Cardigan by Axcess at Kohl's

Again I didn't have quite what I needed to pull this off exactly - but I love this top!

Monday October 20
Black Wide-Leg Pants - by Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's
White Rib Tank - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Black Button-Up Sweater - from Old Navy
Tan Pashmina Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's

I loved the look of this original pin - but all of my patterned bottoms are skirts and as I said on instagram it was too cold and too Monday for a skirt.  I also don't have a light tan cardigan, but I think I pulled off the look with the scarf - I love scarves!

Tuesday October 21
Gray Corduroy - by Sonoma at Kohl's
Black and Maroon Mock-Layer Top - from Kohl's

Again this was a pin that didn't look comfortable enough to actually go about wearing - those shoes make my feet hurt just looking at them.  But I got the colors in all the right spots!

Wednesday October 22
Gray Flats - by ? from ?
Navy Trousers - by NY&Company
White Cami with Black Dots - from Kohl's (it's one of those Spanx like tops that squeeeeeeze you in!)
Gray and White Polka Dot Sweater - from Old Navy
White Pashmina Scarf - by Apt 9 at Kohl's

Ok I had basically nothing to wear for this one - I own absolutely no plaid, I've never been able to find a Chambray top that fit and I don't have a vest.  So I wore some polka dots and called it good enough.

Thursday October 23
Gray Boots -by Candies at Kohl's
Leggings - by Vera Wang at Kohl's
Black and Gray Tunic Sweater - by Apt 9 at Kohl's
Black Scarf - by ? from ? (I think I inherited it from my mother)

I loved this pin (finally a scarf!) but since it wasn't Friday I couldn't wear jeans and I don't have anything sparkly.  But I wore the gray boots which are awesomely comfortable.

Friday October 24
Jeans - from Kohl's
Teal Workout Top - from Marshall's - it's the kind with the thumb holes (love them!) and it's fleece lined!
Black Zip-Up Fleece - by TekGear at Kohl's

I didn't #pinneditspinnedit this day because it was a staff day, and I was going to be sitting in my classroom all day, so I wanted to be comfortable.  I almost wore Yoga pants and slippers but I resisted.

October Currently

Wait a minute - how did it get to be October already?  And October 3rd by the time I got around to doing Farley's Fantastic Currently Link Up?!?!?!


Listening - My dogs go nuts when I get home - I can't really blame them though since they've been in their kennels since I left this AM.  They love to run around like maniacs.  They actually were playing on the floor long enough for me to get a picture!

Loving - Did this week drag for anyone else?  It did for me and I felt like all the kids were off their rockers.  At one point I asked "Is it a full moon?"

Thinking - I started this blog at the very end of July and I had a lot more time for blogging then!  I have really not been doing well!  I'd say I hope things will start to settle down... but I doubt it!

Wanting - self -explanatory!

Needing - My house needs to be cleaned, laundry needs to get done - and I have nothing written in my plan book for next week! AHHHHHH

My Trick:

Have you seen this on Pinterest? 
Early Finisher drawers for each student. Differentiated work to target areas needing reinforcement.

They're early finisher bins.  I turned adapted this for my purposes and now my students keep their materials for group in their own drawer.  I have tried magazine files, I have tried the mailboxes...nothing has worked for me as well as these.  I get the ones meant for 12x12 scrapbook paper. (Hobby Lobby with a 40% off - 3 drawers for about $10 - cheapest price out there!)  I have them labeled with the students' names.  They keep their dictionaries in here and their work for the week and their journals.  I would highly recommend them for any room where students don't have desks of their own.  I will take a picture of mine and add it on Monday.

Head over to Farley's Blog to see what everyone else is currently up to.

I'm going to check out everyone's post for all the great tricks and treats!
