the shirt is $1 monday night savers find, gloria vanderbilt brand (is that wal-mart? anyway, the top detail fits a little loose and weird, so i am glad i am wearing a scarf and that i paid only $1.)

this FABULOUS necklace was given to me by a student who went on a cruise to the caribbean. can you believe that when he saw this necklace he says to his mom "that is so Mrs. Coleman"! how sweet is that? and he couldn't be more right--i wore it today because it was staff picture day, too!
So the other awesome thing about this outfit is the total cost: necklace--gift, shirt--Venezia turquoise shirt (a Lane Bryant brand) $1, Tanjay khaki pants from Dillards clearance for probably $10 or less, Rockport shoes so comfortable and aged that they don't count anymore:)
Coral sweater (white stag--which is wal-mart so only worth this price) for $1 and a ribbon and fabric accented skirt from Savers from a while back (don't remember the actual price but I wouldn't pay more than $8), three crocheted flowers from my friend Mrs. Fowler, they are on a magnet so they stick through the fabric!

|The nice thing about being Mormon, you can wear the outfit you chose on Sunday for Monday! Hah! Unless of course your adorable nieces or nephews throws up on it--which they did not:)|
|I like these gypsy like skirts, they are super comfortable, pretty warm, and modest. I guess i don't know if they are super flattering, but I am pretty sure that I don't care. Thrift store find, probably about $5.|
|The cardigan thing is a thrift store find from several years ago so I don't remember the price, the shirt underneath is a $1 from Savers:)--love those $1 Monday nights!|

True confession time: if I could afford it, I would wear more chicos...I truly love their designs and colors and comfort. And their jewelry is inspirational.

i think i like to include a "what the heck face am i making here" shot to keep it real and humorous:)
the gray shirt underneath is also from LB (probably around $10) , a thrift shop gray sweater ($3) of light thickness (missing a button part way down--maybe i should fix that)
the skirt only cost $5 at my local D.I.--have i mentioned i love thrift stores?
what the heck face am i making here?
awesome clearance jewelry from a boutique in Savage, MN., where one of my awesome sisters lives. I know i love pearls, i know i love long, gaudy necklaces so worth the investment. my advice to buying jewelry...if you have a visceral response to something, BUY IT!
cotton spandex knee high socks (3 for $10 seasonal sale)
terrsasole shoes ($18 also seasonal sale)
both from sam's club if you can believe it:)
about a $40 outfit (without the jewelry) and all the gray is so so so interchangeable!

trav and i are getting better at taking pictures, and we will keep practicing. i love black, i could wear it every day, this collard shirt is another $1 lane bryant find and i love it because it doesn't bug my neck but it breaks up the solid black.
ladies, i love my lane bryant pants, they fit so well, worth every penny! my dansko "lady janes" and we are set to teach those jr. highers!
homemade wool flowers and i got several compliments at school....the pants i have had forever and they are an Old Navy taupe brown.
don't you think the purple nails go great?

|Another shot of the shoe and the detail in the side of the pant = make all the difference|
