My other regret...? That I missed part of Read Across America Week! I mean, it's the one time I get to dress like a fruitloop and no one thinks anything of it. Except for the checkout lady at Kroger who asked me, "Are you going to some sort of costume party?" Erm, yeah. It happens everyday in my classroom. But it's invitation only, so sorry, sista.
Well, that's all I got for now. I'm off to unpack my treasures. More later, friends!
|On Lauren: Sweet little bird shirt came from Old Navy. I went out that very afternoon and bought myself one too. I'm very Single White Female like that. Belt made by Lauren. Beret courtesy of Goodwill.|
|I love the clever way she made her belt...it loops through the back. She so smart, she go to college and stuff.|
|The shirt featured a pallet...and so I made this pallet hair clip to match. I was packing-procrastinating the night before, what can I say?|
|Lauren wrote out the ENTIRE Harold and the Purple Crayon book onto her shirt. Adorable, right?|
