No Color Day

It's the last day of Spirit Week at the school where I work and today is "Color Day" where every grade from K-12 is assigned a ROYGBIV color. Since I work with the whole school (in the nurse's office) I decided to wear all neutrals today, so as not to pledge my allegiance to any grade in particular or hurt anyone's feelings. Last year I wore turquoise, since technically no one had that color and the year before I wore head-to-toe silver and grey.
 Polo - from when I worked as a bev cart girl at a golf course
Sweater - GAP
Vintage tie - gift from my ex-boyfriend's mom, it's from a church rummage sale in S. Dakota
Shorts - Paul & Joe for Target
Tights - TJ Maxx
Shoes - Michael Kors

Zee best skinny tie everrr and shoes (which have awesome hexagon shaped heels!)

I went to the Hollidazzle Parade last night with my special needs client Daniel. We've gone every year for the past 9 years! Daniel LOVES Christmas. He was in an after-school and summer program that I ran for special needs teens and when I got a different job, I started working with him one night a week, just because he was my fave and we got along so well! Singing carols is his favorite thing on Earth and when he was turning 17 he didn't want us to sing "Happy Birthday" to him. He taught us to sing (to the tune of O Christmas Tree) "O Seventeen, O Seventeen, How lovely are you, Daniel." It was amazing. Anyway, I am usually kinda bah about Christmas until Daniel and I start rocking out to Christmas music and go to the Hollidazzle Parade and see all the kids who are so excited about the parade and Santa. Ok, now I'm finally ready to do some Christmas shopping.

I'm impressed that you know how to tie a tie!

I was in an improv troupe in high school (and even got a scholarship to teach improv in London) and we always wore white oxfords with ties when we performed... so I learned from my theater teacher because he didn't want us wearing clip-ons!

Very cute outfit! I dig the browns and grey. It's one of my favorite neutral combos.

I like the mix of greys. Hollidazzle is tons of fun, and it always gets me in the mood for Christmas.
