A new chapter in so, so many ways. First off- my first outfit shoot in months! And no more white backgrounds; we're back to Cody's big, beautiful outdoors. Turns out, even though they are more of a hassle, the outdoors are definitely more motivating for us. It was rather funny though, didn't think you could be out of practice for having your photo taken- you basically are just standing there- but turns out, you can be. Of course. Of course.
The bright side of getting back into outfit photos is, naturally, getting to show off the clothes ! I bit the bullet and hopped on the flare jean trend. According to Pinterest, flares should make your legs leaner and longer, and Pinterest knows all (.... right?) This outfit was going for a cool-girl, seventies vibe, but I think it may have missed and gone a bit more....early oughts than intended. That was when I was a high school and then college girl. Those were dark sartorial times, my friends. With that in mind, have you tried flare jeans? Are you considering trying them out?
It is also a new chapter, as the school year begins its wind down. Last week was a whirl wind as I had a different open house event for (almost) every class! All the gifted kids from a grade will come to my classroom one day a week, and each of these classes did something to showcase their work. One had a "movie premiere" where we showed the coded animations they had made through Scratch. We also had "Maker Showcases" where students showed projects they had made (these kids did such fun stuff too- Hogwart Sorting Hats that really worked; 3D printing; sewing; stop motion animation, graphic novels; masks; and so much more!) as well as their robotic projects! So fun, but so tiring. Now it is cleaning up the classroom and, already, looking towards the next school year. No rest for the wicked, I guess!
