What an intense winter! The snow here in Brooklyn has literally been amazing. My winter boots have never gotten this much wear in my eight years here. I am so tired of winter boots, that I have been wearing my wedge sneakers as boots whenever possible. Salt and dirty-snow stains on leather boots usually sufficient for New York winters is not fun. I digress.
To combat my winter blues, I've been wearing bright lipsticks just about daily, and really enjoying my make-up collection. Here's a look from last week:

I really enjoyed my colors here: the purple lipstick again the blue (with green) flannel and navy sweater. And I always love a gold accent here and there. In this case my nameplate necklace works perfectly, and I love my pave link bracelet with an otherwise casual outfit.

Outfits such as this one truly make me reflect on the evolution of my teacher style. I still love a certain teacherly-look-- pencil skirts and tucked in blouses-- but I am enjoying showing my of my personality in my work outfits. I have learned that I can still dress appropriately and wear sneaker wedges.
More to come, as I am finally on Winter break, and staying put for once.
