Power Play


There's usually time while instructing that a rowdy class could devolve from an energetic yet slightly obnoxious classroom into something more, well, woolly. I'm trying to avoid such a crisis in my class right now. It's time to refocus and recalibrate and head in the right direction.  I wanted to be a bit more pulled together and professional for today and dreamed this one up in my head while I couldn't sleep last night. Now if only I had managed not to tuck my skirt into my tights things would have gone a bit better.

There's very minimal usage of vintage in this, but I would argue that as a whole the outfit has a vintage feel. I love hints of black and my home decor also has tons of black points spread throughout. I originally had thicker tights on, but wanted more of a semi-sheer look rather than a heavier one.  I really wanted my black patterned tights but I couldn't find them this morning. Despite the skirt fiasco, I think things went rather well.



Outfit consists of:
Blazer: gray blazer by Express found at TJ Maxx
Pin: 1950s circle pin from my great-grandmother { similar here at moxie deluxe }
Top: white cotton tank found at Goodwill
Belt: black tie belt borrowed from a shirt
Skirt: coral Land's End skirt found at Goodwill
Tights: black tights found at TJ Maxx
Boots: black Nine West boots found at TJ Maxx
