I have green eyes, but they also pick up shades from what I'm wearing. My students kept looking at me like they were trying to read my mind this day. When I went to the bathroom i realized my eyes were the shade of my shirt! Crazy! Time to buy more green! How did I miss this realization sooner?

I have to start by saying I think this is the greatest song ever written. The rule in my car: when it's on, it's loud and everyone HAS to sing. Thank you little sister- great inspiration! I took the line and character, "Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world/she took the midnight train going anywhere..." I wanted to be that small town looking girl who was ready to ride a train all night in hopes of bigger things. The shoulder bag screams "I'm on a train, I'm a lonely girl, and here's a bag to represent moving on even though we all know movie travel luggage is grossly undersized." I'll quit being goofy and just give you the outfit specs:

I thought it would be fun to embed the actual music videos of my outfits at the bottom of the posts. I promise I didn't use this video at all for inspiration. I just heard the song and thought I wanted something quirky, bright, and fun- and I wanted to wear it to work! I thought of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" with the black, white, and bright lipstick for color inspiration. I found this blazer the other day on wicked awesome sale, and here it all came together- oh and I was feeling quirky, even for my pictures.
Blazer: Romy, $2.80 (Mega after Christmas clearance), Shirt: Romy, $1.80, Pants: NY&CO, $12, Shoes: NY&Co, $12 (I think), Pearl Earrings: NY&Co, $5
Imagine my excitement to find that Mika is wearing the same color combo I dreamed up for this song! Good job quirky dreaming self!
I'm taking a day break from the music challenge...here's the conventional preppy classic self that I typically am. Don't worry though, I have a crazy Mika outfit that I designed that is even work appropriate...I'll add that spicier number later tonight!
Pants: Gap, $12, Heels: Cupid, $20. Oxford Shirt: NY&Co, $18, Sweater: Target, $20, Earrings: NY&Co, $4

I pictured a girl in somewhat classic, somewhat trendy, somewhat rocker clothes running through the streets unable to wait for her romantic interest. When I watched the actual music video after getting dressed, I was pretty please that the director and I had somewhat similar thoughts!
Shirt and Jeans: NY&Co, Shoes: Famous Footwear, Jacket: Aeropostale, Headband: F21

I have to confess, I took this picture about 3 weeks ago during finals week. I've never been under so much stress in my life finishing up the gradebook as a teacher as well as study and take final exams as a student. It's like the two most stressful things that have ever occurred happened simultaneously. I think I woke up that morning knowing my life would be insane, and thought- let's grab my busiest sweater, busiest shirt, and 2nd brightest shoes. Go outfit, you got me through that crazy day!
Skirt: Gap, thrifted, Tights: Wal-mart, Shoes: Last Chance, Shirt: Tommy, Sweater: Anthropologie, Headband: Random swamp meet style store in the mall

Do you have a piece of clothing that you've had forever and still love? Behold, my sweater vest purchased at Abercrombie & Fitch when I was 15, and it was cool. I still love it, if you don't just lie to me and tell me 11 years later I can still pull it off! ;)
Shirt: Aeropostale, $12ish, Vest: Abercrombie & Fitch, $20 (cost per wear is probably $.50 at this point), Skirt: Buffalo exchange, free on clothing exchange, Boots: Last Chance, $40, Earrings: NY&Co, $4...feeling like a Jcrew catalog prepster...priceless

I have to confess something- I'm kind of goofy. Ok, I'm really goofy. Despite the idea that you think I look drunk goofy, I in fact have never had a sip of alcohol in my life, and never intend to. I am just naturally goofy. I didn't take an outfit pic this night, luckily my friend caught me playing on some mobile chairs in my attire.
