Since I don’t need to dress for my teaching job anymore, I’ve ended up with a hodgepodge of new t-shirts and other casual paraphernalia. First, I got a pair of Bean boots. Which are actually amazing for snow and for trudging behind horses during Hannah’s equine PT. I had no idea there was a cult around these shoes, and that you have to order them waaay in advance because they take weeks and sometimes sell out for the season. I ordered mine back in October, they were here in plenty of time for snow.
You guys! I loooove these Stately Type Moda shirts. Jaybird Quilts regrammed a photo of these, and I just preordered the Maker and “Do-Re-Mi” designs. If you preorder by tomorrow (the shirts will ship in late April) you can get 20% off with the code MODA20. Find the Stately Type Moda shirts here.

I finished her dress! I used McCall’s M6541 pattern, but I just made the basic little pinafore dress with it. No applique or Ric Rac. This is the same pattern my mom used for a blue version of this dress last summer, and Hannah is taller than the biggest dress size for the pattern now.
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.
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.
