What I Wore: Skirt and Blazer (Yesstyle.com/ Cat World), Shoes (Famous Footwear), Cami (GAP). Necklaces (Various Etsy sellers)


You know those towns people sing about in country songs? The ones dying a slow death as everybody moves away? Yeah, well, welcome to Bearcreek. This little town is famous for its Pig Races and the worst mining accident in Montana's history. Now I've yet to go to the races, and the mines are all blocked off now, but something about the passing of a town fascinates me. You can't be too sad because people are going off to more vibrant, alive places with more going on, but a bit of history is locked up untold in places abandoned like this store is.

This outfit is made entirely of old standbys I've had longer than I've had the blog (not that that is too long mind, but...) Having things that mix with everything is so nice and all of these have been paired with just about everything you can think of, but they work together as an ensemble too. Plus, red shoes never fail to make me feel like going to Oz a la Miss Dorothy Gale of Kansas!

I'm still getting used to the routine (or lack of routine?) this new adventure in substitute teaching is. On days I don't work, I'm trying to get a schedule into place. Gotta keep motivated and going. What are your little tricks for keeping on top of everything?

  2. You are so adorable! I visited a town much like Bearcreek that's a ways from where I live - I loved it. Something about those wistful, abandoned places...

  4. This skirt is so beautiful. I have one that is similar, but not this good and these photos are so cool! What grade are you substituting?

    1. I can substitute teach for any grade K-12 with my Wyoming sub license, but I am really focussing on the elementary grades as that is what I have a regular teaching license for. I'm hoping getting in and being a bit more known at local elementaries will help with job hunting this spring. Super excited to be back in a regular classroom (I was the computer "teacher" at an elementary before this).

  10. Oooo! Your skirt is creamy and dreamy and oh so beautiful! I love how flowy it is in these photos. Also the color of your burgundy shoes is just perfection! They play off the rest of your ensemble so well.
    I have a weird work schedule too. I had to make myself a schedule of things I wanted to get done during the day and hang it on my fridge to keep myself from spending all day on the internet...that's pretty sad, but it worked!

  15. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
