Delicate girl

We had a rough weekend in terms of Mother Nature letting us have it. She was a bit indecisive in terms of really showing us what she wanted. First it snowed, then the sun came out, then it rained (really, really cold rain), then it was windy, then it all stopped. Today, wasn’t half bad, […]

Always and Again: Fuzzy Sweater

It’s been so cold lately. While, the crisp mornings send chills down my spine, it’s not cold enough to sport a coat. So it brings me to think fondly of my fuzzy sweater. I wear this thing so much, it’s tan instead of winter white. But, I don’t care, because this sweater is so thick […]

Red it

One of my favorite colors is red. Next to purple of course. The school that I teach at sports with pride the big red and blue. So naturally a lot of my items include red pieces, like this cardigan. This one in particular I wear during  the casual parts of my life. It doesn’t necessarily […]

Work mode

I was completely lost this morning when my students asked what we’d be working on. Thanksgiving break was nice to me and last Tuesday seemed so far away. It’s always hard for me to return to school after a long break. I almost have to train my brain to work. However, once we all got […]

Scarf up

I own a handful of scarves. The majority of the scarves I own are strictly winter issued. Out of the ones I own, my favorite is this one because it is so thick and wool-like. I typically wear this one in particular when there’s snow on the ground, but on this day, I couldn’t help […]

Rootful

When I was younger, the holiday season was spent in Mexico, my motherland. As I’ve grown older, and more responsibilities have been given to me, those trips have become obsolete. My busy American life has filled my being with hectic “to-do” schedules and never ending routines of “be here” and “do that.” Deep sigh. This […]

Purple

It’s a short work week, but there’s a million and one things to do. Plus, it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished, oy vey! Even more so, the boyfriend came in to see me during our break so that we could both plan when we were going to […]

Stand out

It was extremely windy today. The wind was blowing at 30 mph at least. But, this downtown alley was prefect for showcasing my outfit. After school, I had to run some “before the weekend” errands. So I traded my heels for these comfy (and essential) Converse sneakers. The dress is yet another one of those […]

Dot it

Just because I’ve been gone for 10 months doesn’t mean I haven’t been out shopping. I feel that the older I get; the harder it is for me to find pieces that are worth while. So shopping has become more of a sport. It’s taken hard work and a lot of dedication. It’s even harder […]
