What the Art Teacher Wore #149

Masterpiece Monday: Okay, I am so in love with this new dress o' mine. It was made in the U.S. and designed by Lauren of Wearing History. The dress arrived quickly and so beautifully packaged! I love the print and the fit. Thank you, Lauren! It's my new fave! sweater, scarf and brooch: vintage; belt: Amazon; tights: dunno, Target maybe?; shoes: Clarks
Well, hello there. It's been a long time since I did one o' these lil What the Art Teacher Wore posts! Even so, can you believe that there have been nearly 150 of these posts?! Just outta curiosity, I did a lil search and found my What the Art Teacher Wore #1. It's funny to see just how much brighter and goofier my style has become...and how somethings just never change (like, geez, my hairstyle. Lil known fact: I have Hair-Style-Change-Phobia). 

In other news, I got myself a new crinoline (I always buy the cheapo ones off Amazon for, like, $14. They last about 3-6 months before they deflate and I get another. Anyone know where I can get a great crinoline that won't go flat?). New crinoline means BIG PUFFY SKIRTS! I busted out all my biggest and widest dresses and skirts this week just for the occasion. And, as per usual, I managed to knock several works of art off tables as I swooshed by. Sorry not sorry, kids!

I hope your week is fashionably fabulous, y'all! I have two dresses I've finished this weekend and I can wait to share 'em with y'all this week. Stay tuned!
Banana Legs Tuesday: My sweet kindergarten friends are always perplexed by my colorful tights. When asked why my legs were yellow I told them I had eaten to many bananas. Then I felt a tickle at my ankle and looked down to see a boy touching my tights. "Guys! She didn't eat to many bananas! Those are just long yellow socks!" sweater: vintage, Buffalo Exchange; pencil print dress: Love ur Look London; banana tights: Target
#OnWednesdaysWeWearArt: Are y'all on instagram? I'm here and you'll usually find me using the hashtag #whattheartteacherwore. I'd love to see what you are wearing too so snap a photo and use that tag, y'all. Art teacher and amazing painter Courtney has a hashtag #OnWednesdaysWeWearArt where folks be wearing clothes inspired by works of art. It's so fun! I decided to play along and wear my fave vintage Monet-inspired dress. sweater: vintage, Buffalo Exchange; dress: vintage, thrift store; shoes: old, Miss L Fire
 Novelty Skirt Thursday: I scored this skirt a coupla years ago and it's one of my faves. It has an image of an artist painting a lady's portrait while another looks on. Several of my students pointed it out and loved the theme. sweater and skirt: vintage; cat blouse: thrifted; bow belt: Pin Up Girl Clothing
 Tired Feet Friday: I was doing okay until I decided to stay late and tackle one of a storage closet. I have all of these great children's books organized in my closet and I thought, "why are these not out for the kids to read?!" So then I started creating a wee library in my Jungle Lounge. Do y'all have a library in your art room? How do you keep the books organized? I am thinking of putting mine in bins and color coding them so they stay organized. Love to hear your ideas as organization is NOT my bag, baby. sweater: Forever21, old; dress: vintage, thrifted; necklace: gift

  1. I love love love your blog
    Greetings from Germany

    1. Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee! My husband works for a German company and we've been to Bavaria many times. You live in a beautiful country! xo!

  2. If you store your crinoline hanging upside down in the closet (you know, so the netting is draped down over the waistband, like flipping your hair upside down), it'll stay fluffier longer...

  3. Love all of your ensembles! I bet the kids can't wait to see what you wear! Do you have more photos of your wall that you take pictures in front of? I love it!!

    1. Thanks, Dawn! Yes, I have a blog post about that Art History Wall! You can see it here:
