Man, I Feel Like a Woman

Can I get you a drink? Perhaps a cocktail or one of our house wines? I felt a little like a server today in this outfit. And in a way, I suppose I was. I served French to grade-school kids all day, and for the most part, they were buying. (Lousy tips though.) Until I got to the Kindergarteners and First-graders--they just got served a Madeline video. Come on, who can resist those twelve little girls in two straight lines? I nearly teared up when Madeline's dog, Genevieve got lost. Don't lose any sleep over it though, they found her. 

Anyway... I loved Indiana of Adored Austin's menswear look so much yesterday that I decided to do my own version. (And what do you know, great minds think alike--Kimberly was rocking her Adored-Austin-inspired look as well.) Unlike Indiana's, however, I had no actual menswear in my look. While I'm sure a vest borrowed from my husband would look great, my husband isn't exactly a vest-wearin' kinda guy. He bought a blazer a little while ago, and I think I've maybe seen him wear it once. We're one of those "opposites attract" sort of couples. And you know what, that's just fine with me. I think I'd feel a little threatened if my husband were better dressed than I. Just as he may fall right over if I ever start rattling off baseball (or football or golf...) stats. 



Blouse: Forever 21; mine not Aaron's vest: Old Navy; pants: Gap; earrings: NY & Co; brooch: Target; shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for Target (I'm going to cry my eyes out the day these babies fall apart.)

P.S. I just reached my goal of 50 followers! Stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon! Thank you all so much! (I think I may have a quota for the number of exclamation points I must use in one day. I think I'm there now. I'll just add one more, just in case!)

  2. Congrats on the 50 followers! And I know exactly what you mean with being okay with being the better dressed! If it were the other way around it would be mildly depressing.

    This outfit is great and I think you look more French than server.

  7. Ohh very cute! You look perfect to be working with kids. Relaxed and comfortable, but still very stylish. I really like your writing style, by the way.
    Congrats on your 50 followers! That is my goal right now as well, although I have a ways to go. Would love any tips you have!

  8. Oh Madeline, I love her and her yellow coat. Funny, my husband doesn't wear vest but my son DOES (totally mom influence there). I love this outfit although I usually love all your outfits. Is there no end to your stylish-ness?
    P.S. my son is taking high school French, I might be sending him your way for questions hahaha

  9. Loving this look! Those shoes are great! I had to part with my beloved Cole Haan Nike Air ballet flats this year, I loved them so *sniff, sniff*. I miss Isaac's Target line so much, his pants fit me like a glove.
