"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Taking "Old school" to a whole 'nother level

Taking "Old school" to a whole 'nother level

One of my high school students said to me "Miss Christine, what ARE you wearing?" to which I replied "Yeah, I got a little old school style today."  He informed me "You taking that to a whole 'nother level, old school?!?  More like one-room-school-house style. Little house on the prairie style." This is also one of my students who is constantly asking me to take him shopping, cause in his words "Girlie got styles for miles." Oh my, I'm gonna miss these kids this summer...
Dress - thrifted
Bow tie - thrifted
Socks - Target
Shoes - Bakers, like 10 years ago

It is the last day of school! Huzzah! I love this job, but after the past nine months, my patience is running thin. After seeing 4,500ish students this year, I just can't muster up any more sympathy for your paper cut. It's me time. Time to get selfish. Time to fall asleep by the pool mid-day and sip beers watching baseball at night. Bring it on, summer.

Yes, I love this prairie style dress!
I also love your students' comments. My students are very "urban" and mostly first generation (by that I mean they are radically different styles). But when they compliment my clothes, it means so much to me.
This dress is yet another example of your "style for miles."

That sounds like one smart kiddo saying "Girlie got styles for miles". Not many people could pull of this look, but you totally do.

Hearing about your summer makes me wonder why I didn't go into some sort of education . . . enjoy every minute of it. You deserve it!

Ha! Sweet summer! And I don't know why the thing that your student said about the "little prairie" match so much with you... but I would've said that the Little Prairie meet Vouge and right in the middle is you!
