I love it when your legs are so pale you wear beige shoes and can't see where they begin! I know I could always get tinted lotion, but looking tan isn't something that is super important to me. 

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen the photo with crazy amounts of oreos, pudding, and cool whip. For students that means dirt dessert! I have done a few fun days throughout the year with larger groups of students (although I like to say every day is fun in speech). The end of the year is no exception. I tell all the student to get excited because we are eating dirt and worms! Those who have done the activity before can't help but spilling the secret. We make the whole thing from measuring the milk to layering crushed oreos and pudding. The students have a blast on their last day of speech and I eat at least 2 desserts of my own. Then I send them back to class all sugared up! ;) Muahaha!

  7. OMG at first I thought the top of the skirt was your stomach, then I realized that would be ridiculous! I love the skirt thought!

  8. Gah! I would never! Now that I look at it I can totally see why you would think that though! Maybe I do need to using tanning lotion!

  9. To be fair, I work in a much more casual setting so I get a lot of use from it!

  13. Way to modernize houndstooth. Classic and casual at the same time. Love the necklace too. I am seriously visualizing that dirt dessert! May have to go get myself a pack of oreos soon. :) XOXO, Elif

  14. Haha! I know the feeling all too well of my legs matching my shoes. Being tan is overrated anyway :)

  15. I love seeing all these thrifted finds! That skirt is just gorgeous. I like it paired with your bright shirt. And don't worry, I'm pretty sure we are all in the same pasty-white-legs state at the moment!
