What I Wore: Shirt (Le Tote), Jeans (Gap), Boots (Crown Vintage), Bracelet (Le Tote), Trench Coat (ASOS), Scarf (Similar Here)

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!

  1. I think the pants have a nice 70's vibe... the 90's flare had very low waists- this feels more classy.
    3D printing! It's a good time to be a kid in your class :)

    1. Ugh- the 3D printing was actually way more than we had bargained for. Printing is very slow and time consuming, but the kids enjoyed it.

    I tried some flare jeans and wasn't able to pull them off. You on the other hand look mighty here.

  6. I could do flares with a high waist, I think. I agree with a commenter above - the super flares (which was all I wore) of the 90s had such low waists... I like the modern flare, but it also just seems "too soon" from the 90s and early 00s. I personally think it's a bit of marketing hype by denim companies who are struggling to sell jeans in a marketplace being dominated by athleisure, so they're trying to convince us that the skinny is passe so we buy more jeans. I'm not buying it for one minute.

    The other problem is pairing flares with the right shoes. I'm so into flat shoes and ankle boots right now... I'd have to learn how to walk in heels again!!

  7. What brand is that shirt?? I love it and it is exactly the '70s groove that I am looking for.

    1. Hi Tracy,

      It is from Le Tote, but the brand is Ava, if that helps.
