BRINGING BACK COORDINATES...it's a twin set


Good Morning darlings, I feel like a teacher from back in the day in this coordinate, old school dress and jacket by Bayberry.  It has a union label on its tag so it's an original from I am guessing either the late 60's to 70's.  I slipped one of the barrettes from the thrift in my hair.  

I am having fun with this empty wall in my living room where the big old cabinet used to be.  My husband and I are still deciding which type floors we want.  So, until we decide, the entire house is in disarray.  
 
I switched belts just in case you hadn't noticed, I could not decide which one I liked better.  I think the real  problem was the the twin set just above the belt.  I can't wait to have my (  0  ) (  0  ) reduction.  Soon very soon.  Sunday, after having worked an 8 hour shift with the lovely seniors, I drove home with....no bra.  I took it off the magical way by unclasping and slipping it through the armhole with one hand on the wheel while driving.  I could not wait another second.   Why are men still so amazed at how we can do this?  Funny!  The relief that ensued was like taking off high heels after an 8 hour wedding....you get my drift? 

 
I think this jungle print is playful and not too over the top.  I can wear just the a-line dress in the summer since it is sleeveless.

Have a great Wednesday, thank you for dropping in.  I am working ice cream social at work...one of my favorite activities.  Seeing their faces as I place a  bowl of ice cream with rainbow sprinkles, wet nuts (if we have them) a cherry on top and sometimes chocolate sauce is priceless.  Stay inspired!

you're too pretty and stylish to be a teacher, if I am a student I would be too distracted. I came from an all- girls high school. We used to examine our teachers' outfits every day and find out where she bought them. We even found out the prices. Haha..naughty girls, we even count the number of outfits she has.

You are so charming. Where on earth you discover all these beautiful items?

I'm so jealous you get to have a reduction!!! I have to wait until after I have kids but I can't wait for the day when I don't have boob-caused back pain! And that is a gorgeous twin set, I love it with both belts! Xo Lori

I love the set, there's something so classic about it. Green looks nice on you & I like the thicker belt better! My aunt just got a breast reduction and she asked herself why didn't she do it sooner, she says it feels and looks amazing. Hang in there!
