Sunday Best: Cheetah Girl

On my first Sunday back in Syracuse. Of course, the snow was waiting outside to greet me. I was happy just to look at it from my porch swing on my patio.

I was in training last week for my instructional assistant job this semester. It was laid back attire but, of course, I dressed up a little bit.

As I was thinking about my back-to-school outfits, I realized that I'm probably going to be dressing a little like a teacher during my time as a grad student. Let's face it, must of my closet are remnants from my classroom days. Without even meaning to, I may look like a teacher 88.2% of the time because of my blazer+dress or cardigan+skirt combos. I like it though. It's not my first time at the rodeo so I want people to be able to differentiate me from the undergrads. My wardrobe should help. I'm excited about this first full semester of grad school. I can't wait to learn and grow.

Worship Soundcheck: “Hallelujah”

Today, I had the opportunity to lead worship at Texas Multicultural Women’s Prayer Breakfast. The Emcee, April Tone, was a phenomenal host for the occasion.¬†

First, my outfit of the day (OOTD):

Check out my original post (click the picture) about this thrifted dress that I got for under $5

The front of my hair was a lopsided Marley braid-hair bun. The back was my hair in a sloppy french braid. Look, it’s growing!

Here’s the song I sang:

Thought I’d share a secret about myself:

I’m a big goof when it comes to lyrics and order of songs. I’m notorious for making my fingers cheat sheets for the music. Here’s my cheat for one of the songs I did today.

Thrifty Finds #1

This is my first thrift adventure since the pre-Clothes Swap fast. Lol, I haven’t thrifted for a month. Let me tell you, it was rough. But I went to my thrifting spot and I got:

  • 1 checkered blazer
  • 1 dress
  • 1 button-down sleeveless top
  • 1 floral skirt (with a pocket)
  • 1 pair of striped pants
  • 1 pair of vintage pearl drop earrings (not pictured)
My grand total was $16. Not bad.

My favorite things that I bought were the blazer and the dress. I’m definitely taking them to New York with me!
