The truth is I talk about a lot of things on my blog, but there are things I don't talk about. I want my blog to be an honest reflection of my life and my personality. I try very hard to keep my writing in that manner. There are some topics though, that I don't want to write about (and if we are honest, you probably don't want to read about).
You won't find any posts on here proclaiming my superiority as a mother. Am I a blogger? Yes. Am I a mom? Yes. Am I am Mommy-blogger? No. You won't find tips on diapers, formula vs breast, or lectures on TV. How you raise your children is your own choice, and the way I raise my Bug is between only J and me. One of my biggest pet peeves is the way bloggers/women/people in general berate each other for what amounts to a difference of opinion. My 3 year old daughter is better at Disc Driver on the I-Pad than J. She also knows how to pull up YouTube to watch the Power Puff Girls. How about those parenting skills?
I don't talk about my work much, mostly for privacy (as much as posting your face all over the Internet allows ha!). I have mentioned numerous times that I teach, but I would very much like to leave it at that. Don't expect pictures of me at work or posts related to teaching grammar here. I want to keep my blogging life and my "teacher" life as separate as possible. (Again, the Internet is forever, so who knows how well this will work.)
When I do an outfit post it is not because I think I am a style maven. It is because they are fun. I like clothes, and I have talked about this numerous times before. If you are looking to increase your blog reading with lovely women, I strongly encourage you to check out my Blog Love tab at the top.
I would never try to present myself or my life as a paragon of perfection. (Too many of the people that read this blog know me in real life!!) My house is rarely picture ready. If I do take pictures inside, there is a reason they are always by the front door, that is the cleanest spot in the house! Currently, my living room has three laundry baskets in it. The clothes are clean, I just can't be bothered to put them away right now. In fact, I dug the pants I wore to work Thursday out of my basket. How is that for truth?
Blazer: Mine is from Penney's, I hunted the sales rack for it. This one is similar.
Shirt: I found mine at Macy's, again in the clearance section. This one is from Old Navy, and is a really good price point.
This one is the same brand, I wish they had this one when I bought mine! I love the teal color and the same shade lace. (Just checked the link, the dress is sold out online, but I was in Macy's today and they have them in-store!)
Belt: Swapped off some old dress that I no longer even own.
Dress: Exact match! An option for my tall friends :)
Cardigan: The Limited (this is not exact, but very close) This one is from Forever 21.
