(Shirt: Old Navy  Belt, Skirt & Boots: Thrifted)

I have a new 8th grade student that I met last week and she is a sweet girl. She did however have the brightest blue eyeshadow on and poorly placed lipstick.

It’s a relatively small town and everywhere I go, I run into someone I know. And I love it.
