What I Wore: Shirt (Target), shrug (old), necklace (gift), jeans (GAP), shoes (Minnetonka)


In style blogging, I think there can be a tendency to show our favorite outfits, the special ones. These are the outfits you wear for a day downtown, or to dinner with friends or even what you might wear to work. And I'm sure I'm not alone in loving to see these types of outfits. But since I've begun subbing this past fall, there are inevitably days where I'm home at the house. Not really being the yoga pants type, this has quite often been my uniform for a day at home over the winter. 

The life of a substitute teacher is always interesting because you might be in a different school, a different grade, a different classroom every day of the week. You might be busy for weeks because everyone has come down with the flu at the same time, or there's several away games for the high school all in a row... and then there are weeks where no one is going on a trip and everyone is in perfect health. So, I'm curious, for those of you who work at home (or who are looking for jobs, or who are housewives), what does a Day in the Life look like for you? Any tips for working from home you care to share ? Schedules, routines? Comments about why or why not the choice to work from your home was right for you? 

P.S. Yes, that's snow in March. Sure we haven't seen the last of spring blizzards either.

    1. Thank you Karolina! If you wat to know how to do this hairstyle, it is very simple! A tutorial can be found by clicking the tag "Hair How-To" in the sidebar of my blog.

      Exciting for you to be starting a new blog.

  2. I like that you bother to wear bold awesome accessories like that necklace! And you do your hair nice, love it. I work from home at least 2 times in a week and because usually right after I turn off my computer I go to the gym, therefore I'm usually already wearing my gym clothes. I don't do yoga pants though...I love my Nike capris and a racerback tanks lol

    1. My grandma recently gave me the gold chain necklace when cleaning out her jewelry box and I find it goes with everything!

      I'm seriously admiring that you go to the gym regularly. I've been so bad lately about that.

  3. Love your maiden braids. Working at home for some of my studies is hard work. I say I'm going to loads of work and actually get lots of craft and film watching done. Any hints on how to keep on track would be greatly appreciated. That said when I do have a lot of work and I know I need to keep on top of it, I make myself a to-do list for the day (even if some of the things are as mundane as remember to send a certain email or what I'm going to cook). It's a great feeling to be able to tick things off once I've done them :)

    1. Thank you.

      Ha- what you describe is me exactly. I'll say I'm going to do something and then...go read a book. Like you, I'll do a to-do list and usually get better results that way. Hoping to organize more!

  7. I only work part time, so I'm home for a lot of the day. I made a schedule for myself of how I should go about my day and pinned it to the fridge so that I could be more productive! Otherwise I'm kind of a sloth, haha. I love this casual outfit-those jeans are so great and look so comfy.

  8. I tried to comment the other day and none of my comments would go through, so I hope this time is the charm! Haha. I just wanted to say that I love third photo! I've always wanted to take a photo in falling snow and you did such a beautiful job! I definitely need a better camera lens, hehe. :D <3
