This week I'm working with the French teacher I'll be long term subbing for soon. I'm starting to get excited, but also nervous! She's an amazing teacher, and all her students love her; I hope they can learn to like me too! So if I don't blog as much in the next few weeks, please forgive me. As a regular sub, I've been lucky enough to have a lot of free time due to the fact that I never take any work home. The down side is of course, with less responsibility comes less money, and less challenge (and therefore, less fun). So, while overwhelming, I'm welcoming the work (and the pay increase) that being a long-term sub brings. And maybe, just maybe it well bring me closer to a full-time job. A girl can hope, right?
Okay, on to the clothes. I was inspired once again by Kimberly's Outfit Inspiration Calendar today, which called for mixing stripes, pattern, and leopard. That's three patterns, people! I wasn't sure whether or not I could do it, which is exactly why I wanted to try. And what did I learn from this experience? Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Sure, it looks okay, but to be honest, I just don't love the striped top with the other pieces. It doesn't look quite right. But by the time I figured that out it was too late to change. I'll try to go a little less crazy with the pattern mixing next time. But hey, if that's the worst thing about my day (and honestly, it has been so far), I'm counting it as a success!
