Canadian Cowboy Tuxedo

Breakdown: oxford & jeans- Levi's, sweater- Dolly's Vintage,
boots- TJ Maxx, scarf- Dillard's, lip color- Maybelline Color Sensational in Touch of Toffee

A while back, my parents skipped town for a week and spent some time with Sisters 3 & 5 in Raleigh. Much to my advantage, my Mom always searches and makes a list of thrift and vintage shops whoever she goes. She came home with a bag of trinkets that included but was not limited to: an orange velvet maxi, a bright floral velvet maxi, a pair of black "skrants", an "I Love Lucy" metal sign, and this sweater. It is 100% wool Made in Ireland and it is so warm! It was 39 when I left the house this morning and I was sweating by the time I had lunch duty outside. 

I went with a Canadian tuxedo today because, well, some days you just want to. One of my students told me I looked like a cowboy... I'll take it! Not that I could hoist my leg onto a horse without ripping my jeans, but the mind of an 8th grader probably didn't think about that. Ah, young minds.

PS: This lip color is my favorite! It's a little red, a little raspberry, and a stain so it won't wear off when I'm snacking throughout the day.
