What the Teacher Wore {{Week 23}}

After having an incredibly short week of teaching last week, I discovered that 5 day weeks are brutal in every sense of the word. No lie, I woke up every day this week confused about what day it was (not, it's not's Tuesday...and that stinks). When Friday finally rolled around I could barely keep my eyes open despite my attempts at re-energizing via caffeine {{and lots of it}}. I say this and somehow I managed to keep my eyes open until 3 in the morning at an epic grown woman sleep over that night. I'm going on the record to say that ending the week with a happy hour/sleep over with your girls is what legends are made of. I'm pretty sure I laughed myself into a set of abs and ate enough junk food to make Richard Simmons cry for me. I learned that I'm too old to stay up until 3 in the morning and that junk food is not my friend. SERIOUS Disclaimer: I don't suggest eating pizza rolls, bagel bites, cheese sticks, and queso dip in the same will NOT like how you feel at 4:00 in the morning. Now that I've slept for a full 24 hours in recovery mode it's time to start making a dent in my tremendously long weekend to do list. First stop: What the Teacher Wore {{Week 23}}.

 Army green skinnies have been on my list of things to find since forever ago. I finally found a pair at GAP and instantly knew that they were coming home with me. Although the color looks more brown in this picture, they're green...promise.
Cardigan: Target
Shirt: American Eagle
Skinnies: GAP
Flats: Target
 Mint green has long been a favorite color of mine so any chance I have to pull it into my life you better believe I'm making it happen. Typically I think of mint as a spring color, but paired up with some boots and a cardigan I think it holds its own in winter too.
Cardigan: Target
Shirt: Belk (Jessica Simpson)
Skinnies: GAP

 Half day staff development days are something that you reward yourself for surviving. When there's a to do list a mile long it's nearly impossible to sit through a 2.5 hour presentation. Camo seemed like the perfect pairing for my goal of surviving the day && the constant playing of I'm a Survivor (Destiny's Child) in my head.
Jacket: GAP
Shirt: Wet Seal
Skinnies: GAP
Flats: TOMS Ballet Flats
 By Thursday a scarf was due in the line up. Black on black, and a patterned scarf spoke to me and I was running too late to argue with it.
Cardigan: Target
Scarf: Big Buddha
Shirt: Wet Seal
Skinnies: Jessica Simpson (Belk)
Boots: Rampage
&&& then there was Friday. I ordered a new shirt from The Polkadot Alley that came in earlier in the week. I knew it was best suited for some jeans so I saved it for Friday...not wearing it earlier was tough, but it was so worth waiting for. Why we can't wear jeans every day of the week is beyond me...I don't think I look any less/more put together than the rest of the week. Jeans have somehow been labeled as too casual and I couldn't disagree more.
Cardigan: The LOFT
Shirt: The Polkadot Alley
Skinnies: GAP
Another thing that blows my mind...Valentine's day is this Friday. How is it already Valentine's day??? I just got the last pieces of 100th Day craziness packed away and the fun is about to explode again...with a full moon. Ayiyiyi! Being out of commission for a day and still feeling yuck isn't helping my motivation to make any other dents in my to do list, but the show must go on. Soooo, until next, love && bring on the lovey dovey mushy gushy fun!
