Congrats to team VaticanCameos on winning Gishwhes! Do us proud in Vancouver (I’m sure you will)!!
I’m participating in an educational leadership program in my county. It is a two year program aimed at building relationships between all the different educational institutions in my county. In a room full of administrators, deans, principals, and vice principals, I am one of the few educators still in the classroom (and I’m also the eclectic, tattooed, short hair rocking art teacher).
I have to attend a day-long session with these educational leaders on Wednesday. There is a lot on the line, and we are consistently reminded to first make and continue to make good impressions.
I was all excited to plan out a professional outfit, but I just got an email telling us to wear a sweatshirt the program gave us with jeans or khakis.
Here is where I need your help: I’m a 6 foot, plus size, seriously stacked lady and sometimes sweatshirts and jeans look like I’m getting ready to clean my house. How can I upscale this look to out my best foot forward?! Seriously, the men in this program are tall and handsome and are going to look great in the sweatshirt and jeans combo; I don’t wanna be the frump.
Here is what I have:
Turquoise sweatshirt in my size (Hanes sweatshirt w/elasticized bottom)
Dark, indigo wash, trouser jeans
Tons of jewelry
Tons of boots
Tons of heels
Tons of flats
Tons of undershirts
Go! Pleeeeaaase. I need help; I wanna feel confident and appropriate.
I should be finishing the last graduate research paper of the semester… But instead, I’m doodling on thrift store mugs with my cool, new ceramic pens.
here are some excerpts from my thanksgiving lesson. once class just couldn’t let the whole squanto thing go. it was not a particularly productive lesson.
Reposting because gah! Yes! This is EXACTLY what they do. Any one word or phrase, no matter how innocent, has the ability to shut. Your. Lesson. Down.
