"The Art Teacher" Look

You shouldn't ask a question if you're not prepared to accept the answer. I have (not) learnt this the hard way with my husband. Most mornings when I get dressed, I'm pretty excited to take pictures, I turn to him with silly pride and ask "What do you think of my outfit?" Most of the time he mercifully just says "Yup, fine." It's not the resounding enthusiasm I'm hoping for, but I take what I get. But every now and then he offers an observation. When I put together this outfit and asked for his input he said "You look like an art teacher." Now the comment itself is not that bad, I mean I loved all my art teachers, but I know what Chris means when he says "Art Teacher". Not flattering. Kind of kooky. Maybe the kind of person with liberal attitudes towards armpit hair, and so on. Anyway, once I've committed to the outfit, I've committed, so I wasn't changing and we headed out to take some pics. Don't worry, I sent him to dentention later.

Outfit Details:
White Shirt from a no name boutique by work
Orange Club Monaco Sweater
Black Pleated Skirt thrifted at Double Take
Payless Boots
Necklaces from shortest to longest: Indian necklace was a gift from Chris; A set of beads I picked up in Havana Cuba, the Silver Indian one is borrowed from my mom


  1. I don't think I've had such a stylishly dressed art teacher! The layered necklaces are perfect, and I love the color of your sweater. Following and looking forward to reading more. :)

  2. Too funny! I laughed out loud because that sounds exactly like something my boyfriend would say -- and how he would mean it. I think the outfit is lovely!

  3. Seems like you are hiding your gorgeous silhouette under the bulky sweater. Shirt and skirt and necklaces would have been just perfect, or sweater and skirt minus the shirt, rail thin girls with no chest look better with the shirt/sweater thing , I can never pull it off!!!! but the combination overall is nice.

  4. I love the accessories you added! And the pop of red really makes you stand out!


  5. Ha ha! Detention. One of my favorite words. :-)

    LOVE the sweater!

  6. You my dear are defiantly looking chic and stylish rather then Art Teacher and kooky! Great outfit :)

    Take care,Daniella xox

  7. so loving this look. the sweater looks amazing with the skirt.

  8. I love the orange sweater. So colorful and bold. And the necklaces work so well together.
