Back to School Shopping

more cat pictures

When I was a girl, I worshiped the bible of Seventeen magazine, especially the Back to School issue.


Yesterday I got my hair and eyebrows done. I'll color my hair this weekend. I also bought the supplies to give myself a French manicure, and FINALLY got the necklace fixed that I broke on Christmas day. Today I went shopping for the boy and ended up buying some more wedges


and falling in love with these:


Now, I've been in shorts and t-shirts all summer, and from April on, I wore my Crocs to school. So I've gone from zero to painful in just a day ;)

I'm planning what to wear. I bought this dress last fall but haven't worn it because it's a bit low cut. Mine is gray and blue, though. I thought it was very Lorelei Gilmore.


I have three skirts of the same length, and I have these shoes to wear:




Blame the wedges on my SIL, who mentioned them and made me want them, then I bought 3 pair for $40. Of course, she's five feet tall and I'm 5'7.....

Oh, and these are on the way from Chadwicks, the tortoiseshell ones:


Now I need to put skirts and blouses together with shoes and accessories to get ready for next week. Sadly, the first day we have to wear matching t-shirts - what's the fun in that????

What about you? Back to school shopper? Shoe lover? Wardrobe planner?

Anyone want to take bets on how long before I'm back in my Crocs?

Hah! That's me when I go to conference.

I would live in my pajamas if I could.

Gina, I know exactly what you mean!

Mary, you know I'm a shoe lover. You've got lots of cute ones shown here.

LOL, Mary. I love the wedges. Very cool.

Gina, I told my students that I liked to stay in my pjs all day, and one student still, after every holiday, asks me how many days I stayed in my pjs. Today was one, actually.

Trish, it's an addiction. I think I have 5 pair of RED shoes now. I don't even have many red clothes!

Thanks, Mary Beth! When do you go back? And will you be able to wear shoes?

I admit, all I thought when I saw these pictures was "ouch." I'm SO not a shoe person.

MJFredrick said...

LOL, Natalie!!! They aren't comfy, for sure.
