Nightmare

Tuesdays are fast becoming a nightmare for me. I work at my part time job from 10-12:30, then go to lecture for the class I teach for from 1-2:30, then it’s back to my part time job for a 3-6 shift, then I teach section from 7-8 pm. So it’s not only a really long day but none of the breaks in-between places I have to be are actually long enough to grab some food. So I eat a lot of crackers, carrots, and almonds while I walk (quickly) from building to building. So Tuesdays are my “dress comfortable because it’s a long, tiring day involving a ton of walking” days which is why I opted for this last week. It’s obviously a fairly casual look but it’s definitely comfy and I think still polished enough to teach in.





dress: Target / leggings: American Apparel / watch: La Mer / cardigan: Old Navy / sandals: Target / necklace: the Met

And feast your eyes on the gorgeousness that is the look book for Ulyana Sergeenko’s debut collection a/w 2011. I am stunned.

Sounds like such a long day!! Those are the worst, last thursday I left for school in the morning @ 730 and got home in the evening at 6 because I had a psych appointment afterwards. So tiring!
I love this comfortable look, casual but still really cute

Crikey, that is a really long day, but it must be the best night to come home on. Love the Ulyana Sergeenko pictures xx

You are definitely polished to teach in and I think you look great. Your hair is fantastic!!

And ps--have you tried Luna Bars? I get those mothers 5 for $5 and have been eating them for a couple weeks. Have to say they're a new addiction. It's almost a hot mess up in here!!

But they're totally good for you and can help out on crazy days like your Tuesdays. Highly recommend :)

xo,

You've put together a far better outfit than I would with a schedule like that!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Loving the fairy tale collection!

And I love your outfit as well. Very artsy and modern, yet looks amazingly comfortable.

I'm not sure I could pull something off that cute if I had your hectic schedule! Lol.

And after all this time, I still can't get over your cute new hairstyle. xoxo
