Wow, I don't think I've ever gone an entire month without posting an outfit of some sort or another! That is, until now...
It's been a stressful and busy school year so far - the school where I teach was on the state's receivership list (a list of failing schools) but we just found out that we are off the list as of July 1 - woohoo! YLF has truly been a great place for me to hang out during this time - not only has it been a stress reliever to spend time on the forum, but just knowing that I now have some well-fitting, comfortable, and fashionable clothes to put on every day has been great (well I think they're well-fitting and fashionable, you may think differently - ha!).

#1 - The J Crew coat that I saw Aida wear - I just had to have it!
#2 - What I was wearing under the coat.
#3 - The shirt under the blazer is a new favorite from the Ann Taylor Outlet. Sorry about the weird expression on my face, I had just gotten home from having dental work done.
#4 - Same as #3 except for the blazer. I'll be wearing this tomorrow night to go see an off Broadway production of The Lion King.
#5, #6, #7 - Got a little funky for a co-worker's 40th birthday party at a local pub. My goal was to wear something I love and wouldn't wear to work. This fit the bill perfectly and other co-workers came up to me all evening to tell me how much they liked my outfit!
#8 - I wore this dress all winter with black tights, and I like it much better with tights - it doesn't look as short. I've already put this away until fall.
#9 - Super easy dressing - almost all black with statement hose.
#10 - I really like this new top from J Crew Factory, but since the stripes are shiny it doesn't photo well.
#11 - I bought this blouse from the Loft last fall, and I like the way it looks with my multicolored pearl necklace.
#12 - They still have the heat on at work so my room is like a sauna. I decided to wear a sleeveless top (I had a long sweater for outside). I got this statement necklace at a craft fair last weekend.

I did manage to squeeze in some shopping two weekends ago, so I'll be posting a little more often!
