October 5, 2018 – Elementary, My Dear (OOTD #388)

I was honestly shocked that I’ve never used that blog title before.

I feel I’ve made most of the popular English culture references at this point, but as it turns out, I haven’t made this reference yet (though I came rather close here). I surprise myself a little everyday.

Today’s blog title is inspired by my roommate, who, upon seeing this outfit, declared that I looked like an elementary school teacher. Interestingly, this is the same roommate who said the other day that my outfit made me look like I was getting ready for Oktoberfest.

In both cases, I can’t really argue with her. While elementary school teacher wasn’t really my goal with this outfit, I’m not against the look either. I know for a fact that realistically, I would be a terrible elementary school teacher, so seeing as I will never be one, I’m happy to dress up like one.

I’m not sure how many elementary school teachers would match leopard print and plaid, but more power to those who do.

Actually, for a few years as a kid, I wanted to teach second or third grade. I don’t know why, though. I don’t remember being any good with younger kids when I was a kid, and I don’t remember being particularly interested in teaching people things either. Honestly, I think I just thought it would be an easy job that would still allow me to have summer vacations. I know now, of course, that teaching is actually quite difficult (and quite underpaid) — and hence, I will never teach, even for the summer vacation.

But maybe if I continue to impersonate an elementary school teacher with loafers, plaid, and tea-length skirts, I’ll get summer vacations anyway, even if I don’t go into education. Worth a shot, right?

That’s about it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at home at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, BloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
