So you know how I mentioned that I literally have not stopped moving for the past week? Yeah, this kindergarten back-to-school stuff is NUTSO. I give every single one of you who has done this before major props. Between the forms (about 6,812 of them), pre-visits with the teachers and other school staff (58 of those), and supply purchasing (126 items and counting), I am one worn out momma. At least I will be prepared for when CW and Angus go through this process.
Rex hasn't even started officially, that would be Wednesday, you all. :P
And I thought setting up to teach 6th-grade history was hard. (Laughs at former self. Ha.)
Anyhow, I have a few moments to do a post (and polyvore and maybe even comment back on the last three posts), so here you all go.
Let the back-to-school outfit parade begin...
Anyhow, I went ahead and ransacked the Anthropologie sale floor in DC and found these jeans (AG Stevie Polka Dot Ankle). I had been eyeing them and hadn't realized they had gone on sale, so I decided to go for it as they are great on my "continuing to lose baby weight" bottom half and dressy enough that I wouldn't feel underdressed at the meeting. I also grabbed a tee from Forever 21 for the occasion. I don't normally even go in Forever 21, but the need of a non-sweaty top combined with their really good prices compelled me to take a look. I actually quite like this top, very pretty and somehow worked with the polka dotted jeans.
I am excited to wear both pieces again, how would you all style the polka dot jeans for the fall? I am looking for suggestions!
I reviewed this dress last week here. Let me tell you all...if Boden came out with this in another vibrant color (I have more than enough in the way of navy dresses), I would be in on that action. This dress is so comfortable, so pretty, so conservative, and SO exactly what it needs to be for my life, that I cannot thank Johnnie Boden enough for having his designers come up with this frock. Amazing.
BTW, not only was the dress wonderful, so was Rex's behavior in church. I was beyond thrilled. He even genuflected at the end. My baby is growing up!
So I found a way of being modestly dressed, comfortable, and dressy enough by pulling these pieces out.
I have another way of wearing the skirt tonight, but won't likely publish it over here for a few days. However, I have been pretty good about updating my facebook page with the photos the day they happen, so visit there if you want to see more "real-time" outfit of the day postings.
Above is the polyvore of this outfit. :)
You all have a great day. Hopefully back to school is going well for all of you, too!
