Hey loves how was your week?
Another busy and even shorter post. Today I’m sharing my look to school on
Friday Thursday the 13th when I had guests in my class. Ummm, not the 'byob’ and we’ll 'Netflix binge' kinda guests. I wish, but no. Kindergarten teachers from another school in my school district and from a Christian school in El Sobrante came in to observe me and my kiddos. So we had clip board carrying, note taking and dare I add applauding adults in the classroom. My teaching is very fast paced. I go hard and my kiddos are mostly readers, high and accomplished after only 8 weeks of school.
Last school year, my class had the highest scores of all the kinders in the district on the DIBELS test (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) and boy I felt like a proud mama. I’m never reluctant to share what I do and how I do it to get the brilliant results I get. Just not in Math, :))). That’s what teachers do, we learn from each other. A couple of my kiddos were a little showy on Thursday but it was altogether a great visit.
Chilly mornings are still giving way to beautiful warm days. In other words, the sun still shines, it’s still warm and I’m pretending it’s still summer. So I’m wearing one of the hottest trends from back in the Spring, everyone’s favorite retro pattern aka GINGHAM top with flare sleeves and a pair of blue flare jeans for a fresh take on a casual work/business look. Flattering Flares. By the way doesn’t gingham look great on the young, old, skinny, thick, just everyone. From runway to high street, gingham has been very visible.
Something about blue and green styled together is very exciting to me so I brought in green accessories in the belt and bag and they elevated this look together with the flattering flare sleeves of the shirt. Wait a minute, next time I style this shirt, I could do it with a hunter green skirt to make it even more Fall approved. What are your thoughts on that pairing?
