Taking the little man to meet his teacher


Blazer: Threadsence Sold out
Tank: Victoria's Secret
Cargo Pants: Banana Republic (c/o Katrina)
Wedges: Forever 21
Stackable Rings: E Street Denim
Earrings: Jewelmint
Necklace: Self made
Bag: Coach

My little guy starts early childhood Monday! I can not even believe he's going to school 5 days a week, but it is time. On this day we went to meet the teacher, pay, and see what we needed to bring for his first day. Since I knew we would be hitting Jewel up right after I wanted to be able to do a lot of walking around. These are just like wearing gym shoes as far as I'm concerned! I seriously could do all day 5 days a week in these bad boys! ;)
Can we talk about these pants now? These were another hand-me-down from Katrina before she left and I seriously love them! They are a size too big, but when you cuff them they look more like a boyfriend pant and I really love the relaxed fit! Great addition to my year round wardrobe, no?!
What do you guys think on the color combo? I was wondering if the peachy blazer was too "spring" with the army green pant. Hopefully I pulled off the transitioning to fall look without looking too much like an Easter egg! lol

You are one beautiful mom!

LOVE this look and the color combo is to die for!!! Absolutely LOVE the shoes and stackable rings (I will be watching for these in "shop my..." lol)!
I can't believe Ryder is starting school MONDAY! Good luck to both of you and I will be thinking about you!!! xoxo

This is a perfect "meet the teacher" look..I love it!! Yay for the little man starting school! After I graduate in May I will be an early childhood teacher here in Milwaukee :-) Maybe one day I'll venture down to the Chicago area!

Sniff. Sniff. I thought it was going to be tough to send Moose to EC Sped at CPS, but so far so good. Hope you like it. We love our program so far. 5 days is a lot, but it's so nice to have one kid for a few hour stretch.

Love the outfit!

Cute outfit. I love your blog and that you prove being a mom doesn't mean you have to stop being fashionable!


Katie said...

Your jacket looks almost identical to the F21 one I bought recently.
I love it paired with green cargo style pants. And those wedges do look very comfy.
Hope your little guys does great at school. I am sure it will be harder on you than him in the beginning. I am leaving tomorrow for a week long consulting gig and freaking out about leaving my kids!

As your child's teacher, I thought it inappropriate that you made me take these photos outside the school. I get paid to teach spelling and reading and stuff. Next time, at least slip me a $20.

(For an extra $20, I'll make he gets the seat next to the coolest kids. It's important.)

Corina said...

great blazer!!

Balancing Lisa said...

Thanks everyone! and very funny Delfin, I took these with my tripod! But maybe I should have asked his teacher, I could have gotten good action shots! ;)

Bonnie said...

I am just dying over your blazer. The color is absolute perfection, and it looks awesome with your outfit!

In my opinion green cargo pants are a neutral and you can pair them with avsolutely everything except a camo shirt : ) I also have those Rachael earrings. I love Jewelmint buy my credit card whishes I would cancel my membership.
