GeekMom Teacher Finds

A few weeks ago I wrote this post for GeekMom. I’m reposting it here because today I have orientation for my new teaching job. The wardrobe is on my mind a lot.

It’s that time of year again, when back-to-school commercials take over the airwaves and summer feels like it’s slipping away. But all of the school talk is focused on getting the kids ready for a new year. What about the teachers? We like new things in our closets, too.

February 2014 OutfitsSo this was February. I wore a lot of boots and a lot of slippers. And, true to form, a cardigan in more than half of these photos.

I didn’t capture every day, there was slacking off around my birthday when I got sick. But, this is what I wore. I’m hoping that by the end of March some warmer weather clothes will come out to play.

I haven’t ordered anything from Boden in a while, so I’m really excited for these. From top left going clockwise: Retro Pocket Dress in Sapling Sixties Floral; Casual Tunic Dress (I have 2 of these already) in Ivory Lupine; Leather T Bar Sandals in Seaspray; and Sorrento Dress in Pewter.

That guy. I couldn’t stop talking about the Marimekko raincoat for Hannah, and he was going to try and get over to the store during lunch this week to get it. But then it popped up on the website (it wasn’t there when I checked), and he ordered it. And it. Is. Amazing. 12 months size, so she’ll grow into it all spring and summer. Entirely fabulous.

I was looking through pictures last night and realized that I never posted photos of her first Halloween costume. There really was no Halloween this year, but we did get dressed up to go visit my mom the weekend before the storm. I spent months agonizing over Hannah’s first costume, planning a coordinating theme for the family, and I was so proud of this. I really wanted to show her off, but in the end we had just had a brief photo op in front of my mom’s and a quick tour around a very bizarre Halloween party at the Parks and Rec building in my hometown. It consisted of a hayride around the Little League field and a strange dance-type thing happening inside the building. The hayride line was down the block, and loud dances are not really Hannah’s cup of tea yet.

On Monday Meredith and I went to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met. They’re opening on Mondays just for this exhibit, and you can pay more for a ticket but avoid the now infamously long lines. So worth it, the exhibit is incredible. They don’t allow photos at the exhibit, but check out the link to the exhibit’s blog: there are some excellent photos and videos of the exhibit highlights. Two of my favorite pieces are shown in the “Romantic Gothic and Cabinet of Curiosities” post, the wooden boots (with the leather top) and the spray painted white frock. I loved the stories behind those, the audio guide is a must.

March is now on the books. I wish the weather would ease up a little, but I’m glad April comes tomorrow. March is such a long month, and I’m exhausted. But it’s been a great month regardless. Two weeks until Spring Break!

I had a Buy 3, get a 4th for $1 coupon at Boden, and since it’s well documented that the British catalog company is my favorite store I felt compelled to heed its siren song. I’m so excited about spring and summer in these dresses.

February was a turtleneck kind of month. The snow had mostly melted by my birthday, but the temperature has been so jumpy. I honestly can’t quite believe it’s March. Seven months of school down, 3 more to go!

This month has felt like an eternity, as January usually does, but it’s been a HUGE improvement over last January. Two snow days (spent in pajamas in these photos). Haven’t been sick. Life here is pretty good so far in 2011, and I’m thrilled to start this year off better than last. Here’s to the next great month.
