This is today's inspiration:
The Honduran flag for the game between European champion Spain and Honduras. I make it a rule to cheer for Latin American teams, but even if I didn't, I love a good underdog story, so if I don't have an actual favorite, I cheer for the underdogs.
But enough about my questionable fandom, on to the outfit:
White cami: Target
Blue tee: Old Navy
Straight leg jeans: Banana Republic (remixed)
Black flip flops: Rainbow (remixed)
Blue and white striped ribbon: from another shirt
Blue and silver earrings: New York & Co. (remixed)
I spent today entering a gazillion comments for my students and cleaning out my desk, so if I look a bit disheveled it's because I was crawling around on the floor trying to put all the new supplies for the new Spanish 2 teacher in my bottom desk drawer.
My original plan was to dress for Chile, but I figured they'd rock it against Switzerland. Also, my white tees are in the wash. Honduras was an easy choice. I like the tonal look of this outfit: all that blue with the strips of white. It's easy for a super hot day in Philly.
I'm always iffy about putting a blue shirt with jeans - too much blue - so it was important to me that the cami be long enough to peek out from under the tee just to break up the line of blue a bit. Can I just say that this might be the first time I've ever worn this shirt right side out? Usually I put the scoop neck in the back for added coverage up front.
I finished the whole thing off with the same blue and silver earrings from yesterday and a ribbon in my hair. The ribbon started out on my wrist, but as my hair escaped the twists I pulled it back with, I figured the ribbon could keep it out of my eyes and still look cute.
Today's World Cup inspired look was not quite as successful on the field as yesterday's but I guess that's just the way the game goes....
