I really don’t know what to say for myself here. I only remembered to take these photos for 2/3 of the month, and I wore completely identical outfits three times. This should give you some indication of the kind of month November has been.
October is when I realized that my new khakis are not working for me. Also, I really love khakis. But they do not always love me. Also, even though October is my favorite month, I’ve been sick for most of it.
I wore real clothes this month! Lots of them. And a bunch of new dresses from Modcloth (love the cute prints) and eShakti (addicted to the custom sizing) that I bought for back to school.
Also, I went back to school.
It’s the first week of school in my neck of the woods, my first week back in a school after a year home writing and mommying. I still have so much summer to post, and all my brain can think about right now are door decorations and library cards. But, I can’t let the whole rest of my life get derailed by a new job. So, this is what I wore last month. Thank god summer is coming to a close, I really cannot dress myself in the heat.
Oh, July. You were a month of cutoff jean shorts and myriad toddler fingerprints on the mirror. Get it together, July!
Actually, July was pretty together. I got a teaching job. I started writing for What The Flicka?, and I finished the redo of this site (yay!). I went to Lancaster with my favorite ladies. Hannah took swim lessons and started the summer program at her school. I made more jam, which I will write about later. I finally learned to walk in flip flops!
I wish I had some great insights to offer for last month beyond noting that Hannah’s fingerprints are a constant presence on our mirror.
June went fast. Hannah had three weeks off from school before starting the summer program, and now suddenly she goes back on Monday. July 4th has come and gone (and we had a great one, more on that later). The weather went from getting away with long sleeves to straight-up tank top and flip flops weather.
Here are a few things about April that I thought about while putting this month’s collage together:
- I forget about this project a lot, and April was definitely a regression into lots of yoga pants (those would probably be the days missing photos).
- I have really, really been digging striped shirts since I was pregnant with Hannah, after a lifetime of avoiding them.
- I need a haircut (scheduled for tomorrow!). Too many ponytails.
- It’s already May 7th, and I’m just getting to this post. Lots of THINGS happening here.
- I miss wearing dresses, but not that white eyelet dress (purchased for a specific purpose, not to be fabulous).
I’m a week late, but here’s the group of outfits I wore in March. In March I learned that I desperately need new jeans, so that is currently being handled.
I also missed about a week’s worth of photos last month. It was a busy time; Hannah’s second birthday (which was really wonderful), finishing up the four-month-long web design course I took, and working on some very cool new professional adventures for myself. Those adventures include a complete overhaul of this site, which is currently in the works. And I’m really thrilled about it; this blog’s last facelift was four years ago. And this won’t just be a facelift; this site will look 100% different. I’m really hoping to have the new site up by the end of April. Fingers crossed!
