The Learning Curve

It’s Back to School time!

So here I am wearing a “teacher outfit” and my herringbone blazer, always the first thing I pull out when Fall comes around. 
Fall always brings its own learning curve, I find, whether or not you’re going back to school. We’ve all got to buckle down a bit, find a new routine, work on those New Year’s Resolutions that went by the wayside and somehow find their way into our guilty conscious again come September…
So many people in my life are starting new jobs, new degree programs, and new adventures. I have my own set of mountains to climb this fall.
But all good things. We must always be learning in order to keep growing and moving. Once we stop learning, we’re in trouble for sure! And I don’t know about you, but I always try to avoid detention 🙂

A Little Bit Ivy League

I love a good collegiate style.
A little bit Ivy League with the (fake)Ostrich purse, the stripes, plaid, and pearls.
This time of year makes me really miss school. I just adore the architecture, the libraries, the tradition and the  activity on a crisp fall day on campus.
It’s filled with a feeling of beginning again and excitement mixed with purpose
Wow. 
That sounds like exactly what I’m going for in life right now.
What’s better for Back to School than Pumpkin Spice Lattes? In the spirit of saving money, I made this do-it-at-home version and it is yummy, cheap, and easy. If you love Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I recommend you try this (and please, for my sake, try the whipped cream, since I didn’t have any handy).
 And it matches my ’70s Norwegian mug. So it’s win-win. 

PS. Shorts under skirt + fingertip rule, promise 🙂
