Every girl needs a few comfy dresses in her wardrobe. They are the perfect pieces for days when you don't feel like thinking about what you are wearing, but you want to look cute. They are easy to accessorize and can be made into a million different outfits by simply changing up shoes, jackets, and jewelry.
This recent Forever 21 purchase of mine is one of my favorites. I love that it is super comfortable, has a flattering fit, and a high-low hemline which allows me to spend time outside without the worry of the wind blowing up my skirt (you all know what I'm talking about!). I paired it with my favorite combat boots, a jean jacket, and a pretty necklace for a night out with friends. We actually ended up bowling, which had I known, I probably would have worn something else, but this dress was easy enough to move around in (and looked super fantastic with bowling shoes).
As for my hair, I love rocking a top knot. It's not always super flattering, but it's a quick fix for when I'm in a hurry and is perfect for keeping my hair out of my face. I actually end up wearing it like this to work often, which has caused for some very fantastic comments from students. One of my favorites? "You look like a Disney Princess!" Probably not...but I'll take it!
The best comparison yet, happened in a second grade classroom, while I was teaching a lesson on sea life and oil spills.
Me: "So, when oil spills happen in the ocean, it makes sea creatures very sick. Whales and dolphins often die because the oil gets in their blow holes so they cannot breathe."
Me: "Yes?!" (Waiting for an insightful comment about this dire situation).
Student: "Your hot cross bun looks like a blow hole today!!!!!!!!!!" (Ridiculously excited by this observation/comparison).
Rest of class: "Yeah!!!" "It DOES!!!" "Sometimes my cousin wears her hair in two hot cross buns like that!!"
Me: "Well...thank you! That's a great comparison! Now moving on..."
(All the while trying desperately not to explode with laughter).
Yes. Thats right. My bun, or my "hot cross bun" was compared to a blow hole. Your pretty jealous, aren't you?
