Bri's Third Thursday Threads theme "Oversized" couldn't have come at a more perfect time of the year. I don't know about you other teachers out there, but March is one of the most difficult months to get through. Waking-up early is a challenge, getting through the school day with a smile on my face is exhausting, and wearing real clothes everyday? Now that's something that I really don't want to do. Combine my midyear ennui with a couple of extra pounds gained from snow days spent lounging on the couch and snacking, and all I want to wear are comfy, oversized pieces.
On this particular day, all I wanted to do was wear leggings to work. Unfortunately, I don't have any tunics long enough to make leggings appropriate for teaching. But isn't a swing dress really just an oversized tunic? I thought so! And somehow the all black made my practically pajamas ensemble somewhat chic. I even had a seventh grader tell me that it looked like I had spent hours putting together my outfit. No no, darling girl, I somehow managed to make this work before my eyes were fully open in the wee hours of the morning.
While I'm thinking about it, though, perhaps I should invest in some nice tunics so that I can wear them to work on difficult mornings. I'm loving the ones with the feminine embroidery for spring! Or maybe I should just tell it like it is and wear the one that very accurately describes the current state of my body. Or I could continue the trend and swear swing dresses as tunics. What do you think?
What I'm Wearing:
Leggings: Nordstrom (exact)
Flats: LOFT (similar)
