The issue right now is that my classroom is so hot that I physically cannot wear jeans. Or pants in general. In fact, many teachers are wearing leggings and boots. Part of the beauty of being a teacher is that I get to dress for the weather. I don't have a uniform. I've discovered that if I don't wear a dress or skirt, it's wildly uncomfortable. The temperature settles in at 80 degrees around noon. That's not an exaggerated number. I can't focus, the kids can't focus, and we all want to just fall asleep. Have you tried to keep the attention of that many nine year olds who are hot, and tired, and cranky, and still want it to be summer vacation? It's exhausting.
The other day, a kid told me he needed a cup of coffee to stay awake.
Then someone else said it a few days later.
Then I was asked if I needed coffee too.
While I wish we could take a trip to Starbucks at 1:30pm every day, we can't.
This linen dress was a terrible choice for a hot day. Lesson learned.
It's fit and flare, from the Gap. The sweater is Loft, about a month ago. The sandals are $13 from Target.
(Is there another place to buy sandals? Should they ever cost more than $15?)
