Another Pink Top

Another day, another pink top.  I swear I have been on a buy all the pink tops kick lately!  That and being bossed around by the kindergarten girls. You know how I shared their displeasure over my unpainted nails last week?  Well, I had every intention of rectifying that situation over the weekend.  Then I found out that biggest you-should-be-ashamed-your-nails-aren’t-painted whistle blower was going on vacation all this week and I changed my mind!  I plan on getting gel nails but I’ll do it this weekend so when I see her next Tuesday I’ll pass inspection.  Yes, that’s what my life has been reduced to – pleasing 5 year olds!  The worst part? My principal was one who told me she’d be out of town and suggested I wait to do my nails.  Apparently we’re all at their mercy.

I’ve been visiting the kindergarten classes to do a short lesson on what a school counselor does.  Kind of a waste of time because after spending a good 25 minutes explaining my job all they really think I do is work in the cafeteria since I have lunch duty when they’re in there.  It’s almost comical, you should see the great lesson I have yet they are adamant I am the lunch lady!  But since I have lunch duty with our principal and assistant principal too I guess that makes us all lunch helpers!  Good thing I went to graduate school.

Let’s get back to my fun top.  It’s no secret I get a lot of love from these kiddos because they love my clothes.  I bought this top a few weeks ago from the online retailer Shein. I love the color, the criss cross and ruffle sleeves. It’s not just a basic,boring, short sleeve pink blouse – it has personality! Here I am wearing it with a pencil skirt from Target.

This look has work outfit written all over it and I am just fine with that! This colorful skirt is old but has so many great colors. In the past I’ve worn it with blue and even a chambray top. It has a very small hot pink stripe near the bottom. Look how excited I am!
I love that I can wear my favorite wedges with this look because they’re so comfortable! Even after having them on all day they feel good!
My top is no longer available at Shein but check out this one. I think it would be great for Fall! It would be perfect with jeans, and a kimono or field jacket. Add some peep toe booties and you are set! This one has long sleeves for $13! I’m telling you Shein is really worth your while to check out. You can’t beat the prices and I swear as long as you read the reviews regarding sizing you’ll be happy with your order. They do offer easy returns just in case.

    One can never have too many pink tops! This is such a fun look, and definitely perfect for work. I think it is so funny that you guys are at the mercy of these Kindergartners! Hilarious.

      Thanks Deena! I can’t believe I never paired this skirt with pink before. I am really enjoying our kindergartners this year, they are precious!

      Thanks, yes, kids say the funniest things. I know it isn’t always easy but I do believe you just can’t help smiling when you work with kids!

    Hot pink is definitely your color. It’s gorgeous on you and goes perfectly with that cute skirt. I have got to get on the Shein bandwagon. Katie and I kept saying we were going to order from them all summer and never did. Smart call waiting until the whistle blower will be back to get your nails done. Tell her to climb down off your back…LOL. She’s going to be a mess as a teen. #goodlucktohermama Happy Friday Eve you beautiful “lunch lady”.?

      Thanks my dear, I appreciate the kindness! Yes, you are right, these mamas are gonna have their hands full with these divas they’re raising! If I could only tell you some of the stories of the things we deal with everyday. I swear I am worried about what the world is going to be like when these little people grow up. They are so used to having everything and being the center of the universe, like no one else matters. It is crazy.
      You and Katie should definitely get on the Shein wagon, such fun, trendy stuff at great prices.
      So I’ve been thinking of you and how your trip is winding down. I’m sure it’s bittersweet. You have had such a great time but I know it’ll be hard to leave. Thinking of you girl!xo
      Your favorite lunch lady

    SheIn really has some super cute items sometimes. I feel I have to really look on their site to find them, or I’ll see them on other bloggers and the hard work is done. 🙂 I love the bright color of this top and those sleeves are really cute, too! Too funny about being the ‘lunch lady’ in their eyes and having a graduate degree! Gotta love kids 🙂

      I agree Carrie, I love seeing what everyone else gets from Shein so I know how things really run and what they look like on a real body. I’ve really been lucky so far with what I’ve ordered.
      I will forever be known as the “lunch lady” in these kids’ eyes! They crack me up on the daily and I am blessed to have them in my life!
