Just a Regular Day

What does your run of the mill day look like? I'm going to give you a rundown of what my day looked like on Friday.

Rachel Rewritten

I usually wake up at 9am but since my husband's schedule was switched to a later one, we both slept in until 9:30.

He showers, I exercise.

I shower, dress in a t-shirt and workout shorts and make lunch. I don't dress for work until later because I am notorious for being clumsy so I'd hate to spill something on my work outfit while I am making or cleaning up lunch.

Friday, we ate fish (from the freezer section at Costco), homemade mashed potatoes and "fresh" corn that tasted like it was intended to feed my pigs.

I finally dried my hair and dressed for work. Here's what I picked out:

Ignore the white dot on my nose. I'm pretty sure it's on the camera as my pictures I took of my husband that day also had a white dot. He must be taller than me because it fell on his upper lip.
Here's a side note about this dress. I bought it online from a Facebook flea market group. I could have sworn the dress was navy with white stripes. That's even what I asked to purchase. I met the girl in the dark and it still looked navy and white. I took it home and realized it was royal blue and neon yellow. Totally not my colors! I think it looks okay with this white cardigan though.
And I wore these shoes:

Sporty huh? I wear my tennis shoes to work and then change into my heels or flats to teach because I walk 1.25 miles into work. The other teachers wear their heels to work and then promptly change into their choice of Hello Kitty shower shoes or bedroom slippers.  You can read what my student's think about my style HERE.
We both ate a ham and cheese sandwich with a pickle and chips for lunch.
At work, we told our director that we wouldn't be signing a contract for a second year. That means we're on the job hunt again.

  1. I'm all for wearing the sneakers into work. I don't care if it looks funny with my dress pants. If I walk to work is about 1.5 miles so it's worth the comfy footwear.

  2. I think the dress looks adorable on you.
    So, didn't sign the contract, huh? Oh, I hope that means something fabulous is just around the corner!

  3. That dress is so cute! I think it's awesome to wear tennis shoes into work...no need in breaking your back in heels. I'm excited to see what's next for you :) Thanks for linking up with us...check back at the post and mingle with new people!!! Happy Thursday!

  4. Love posts like this, I am naturally nosey about people's day to day lives lol. Love the dress!

  5. That was definitely me in grad school wearing my tennis shoes with my nice clothes to walk to the clinic on campus, then I changing shoes once I got there. I'm definitely one for comfort over style! Your dress looks so comfy- yellow and blue look good on you!

  6. Man if it was me I would walk in my sneaks as well. Forget trying to be cute in route to work lol.&& That dress is cute on you it looks so comfy.

  7. I'd wear comfy shoes as well! I used to love coming home to my parent's house in the country, still wearing dress clothes from work, and change into my house shoes. I love your dress!
