the rainy day special

Today, I totally wanted to wear some of my new thrifted items.
(You can check those items out in my vlog, found here.)
BUT... Mother Nature did not want me to have any fun, so it's my rainy day special of jeans, boyfriend tee, and turban.
Speaking of that red head adornment, I love it.
You can see the different ways I have styled it 

I can honestly tell you that three of the numerous items I am wearing today were assumably lost.
I forget when I hang things up to dry in the laundry room and they get hidden by other items.
I thought these jeans ran away... but alas, we are reunited.
(and it FEELS SO GOOD)
Same for the two necklaces, they were hiding under newer items.
I think I need a new organizational system, folks.

Check out those nails! 
What do you think?
 It was harder than I thought, but I'm pleased with the outcome.  You can see Kara's DIY post on the striped nails HERE.
Get some fun colors and have an Easter themed manicure day.
Happy Easter weekend, and Good Friday, and Easter Monday...
Working at a Catholic school has many perks, including this glorious four-day weekend I start at six pm this evening. Hollllerrrr.

Talk to you later, my little chickens.

  12. Thanks, Faye-Faye! I am basically wearing PJs and I want to go to sleep under my desk.

  13. I'm basically wearing the same thing..skinny jeans and a vneck. But I'm wearing a huge North Face instead of a cute cardigan (cold in my office), no shoes (they're under my desk), and no makeup (I see the same people every day). I'm pretty sure I'll take an "under the desk nap" at some point today.
