How is it already Monday again? I feel like I was just leaving class on Friday. Although I really didn't do much this weekend (aside from school work) it somehow managed to fly by. Lately, weekends have involved a lot of downtown and I am not complaining. In the winter especially it's easy to prefer staying indoors instead of bracing the cold, that is if it is actually cold where you are. The weather has been fluctuating so much here in Greenville that I am never quite positive if I need a thick sweater and a jacket or if I can rely on something a bit lighter weight. I am coming to realize that as I go and student teach each day instead of head to class a number of my favorite sweaters will get less wear unless I make a point to wear them on the weekends. So, I've taken that as the perfect excuse to embrace outfit repeating.
As I began to lay out outfits for this week student teaching I realized that if something in my closet isn't blue or white then it is grey, at least when it comes to wintry clothes. You think that would have become evident to me long ago considering I organize my closet by color but I guess my observational skills failed me on that one.
This outfit is one that gets thrown on frequently especially when running errands or grabbing coffee on the weekends. While I love wearing leggings and a comfy sweatshirt just as much as the next college student sometimes there are times when looking slightly more put together without sacrificing comfort is necessary. This sweater is one of those lightweight pieces that could definitely transition from fall to chillier spring days with ease. The v-neck is flattering and the waffle detailing almost reminds me of pajamas. The fit is long enough that you could definitely get away with wearing this with leggings if you weren't feeling jeans.
If you saw my January favorites post you may recognize this purse & these tassel slip on shoes from there. Slip on shoes are just so easy and this pair is unique enough that they add a little something extra to an outfit. I've raved about this bag already and with good reason. It is neutral and the perfect size for just about anything. I tend to wear more silver jewelry than gold so the silver hardware is the perfect touch as well. So although I can't necessarily wear this to students teach the pieces in this outfit will still surely see the light of day plenty more times before the temperatures heat up.

Let's hope that today is a good Monday! I am starting to teach the math unit that I've been planning for for the last couple of weeks and one of my professors is coming to observe which is a little nerve wracking too since it's my first day truly on the job. I know that I've planned long and hard so hopefully I'll be able to teach the material in a way that is engaging and understanding for these 4th graders!
I am hoping to do a post all about student teaching and specifically what Furman has us doing this semester so if you have any sort of questions at all revolving around that sort of subject be sure to ask away!
