 Everything about this outfit is perfect. The pink of the pencil skirt, the fluttery polka dotted sleeves, I have never felt more amazing than I did this outfit. Which is why this was the perfect first day of school outfit. Of course I made a little modification before I took these photos: what teacher could endure that long first day in wedges?! Still, I'm still like a little kid on the first day and have to have an outfit all picked out. It's one less thing to be nervous about. Yes, I still get the nervous butterflies before the first day and a million thoughts run through my mind of all the things that could go wrong. Fortunately this year seems to be off to a good start (back to school night officially conquered Wednesday night!). I'm also looking forward to showing off some more of my "teacher" outfits.

This weekend I am looking forward to doing some fall things around town. Nick and I have declared that we are officially in "festival season" when some of the best festivals hit the streets of Philly and the surrounding suburbs. Of course it will be overcrowded and full of people in questionable outfits but what is a festival but a great vehicle for people watching? I love this time year.
