We did it! Sean and I both survived the first day of school! I didn't think I would be able to handle sending him off into the real world, so my mom took him for me. I was so nervous the whole day to see how things went for him. After school he told me that it was "the best day ever" and that the lunchroom served ALL his favorite foods. Then he asked if he could spend the night with my mom again. Oh, they grow up so fast!
As for me, I am just thrilled to be back at work and have a reason to dress up and look cute again after a summer of tanks and cut-offs. It's nice to start settling into a schedule again. Wake up. Get ready. Teach. I need the structure in my life.And let's face it- I really love getting new back to school clothes, even after all these years!

I find myself gravitating more and more towards prints and patterns. I am very self-conscious about my stomach because that where I carry almost all of my extra weight, and I feel like a nice print conceals that sore spot with me. This dress was perfect for making me feel good and look good ;) I threw a sweater over it for the chilly lunchroom and paired it with all of my favorite mint accessories!
I'm looking forward to this new school year and all the fun (and fashion) that is headed my way! Hope that you and yours had a great first day back too!
