Back to the World
I didn’t post yesterday, very strange for me. I was actually feeling unwell and spent much of the day on agony as I shuttled children around to various last minute appointments before school starts this coming Monday.
I daresay no one has seen me in public quite like yesterday. While I did get dressed, it was really something I would rather forget!
Today is better. More errands. I just can’t get over it that school starts on Monday! Back to the drive. Yes, I mean drive. My 4 children are scattered across several schools/campuses, and only one has a bus service. Luckily no campus is further than about 4 miles from the house. And everyone is on the same schedule this fall, no more half days!
Anyway, my outfit today. It’s rather thrown together, but we do have a school seminar this afternoon, so it’s halfway decent. I do happen to have an “image” over there. (I.E. the lady who wears skirts and heels to kindergarten. One mother jokingly asked me last fall where my hat and gloves were. I didn’t miss a beat, I told her that my hat was at home, and wearing gloves was impractical where we live. I don’t know If she realized I was joking or not)
Blouse: Banana Republic outlet, under $10
Skirt: Kate Spade, off eBay
Shoes: DIY Strassed Nina flats I did last Sunday
I’ve also gotten some good reading in this week. Enchantment, a book about Audrey Hepburn, and right now I’m reading “life in secrets”, about the aftermath of WWII, and finding the traces of female spies across Europe. A heavy read, but very insightful. I adore history.
Oh, and happy August! In two months I will be twirling around Washington DC with my eldest son and his classmates. 20 girls, 7 boys, it should be an experience. And yes, expect many sparkly shoes on that trip! I intend to catch up with old friends, and be, well, moi! I lived there briefly in the late 90’s, it’s a wonderful place. Being there at the cusp of an election should be exciting for the students!
Until next time,
