Outfit Of The Day: Penguins

I took my son to the mall yesterday because SeaWorld was there to promote their latest attraction Antarctica: Empire of the Pegnuin opening May 24. I thought this was the perfect occasion to don one of my favorite blouses, appropriately adorned with penguins.

What I'm Wearing:

My Mom bought me this penguin necklace a few years ago and I absolutely adore it. 

These yellow cap-toes are the perfect complement to the yellow wings and feet on my penguin blouse.

Geometry Toms

I'd been eyeing these Geometry Toms for awhile, but for some reason never got around to ordering them. Then one day I decided to go ahead and buy them and to my disappointment, I found that they were no longer available online. As luck would have it however, Zulily recently had a sale on Toms shoes and I was able to purchase a pair for only $34.99 (originally $54).

As a math teacher specializing in Geometry, I found that these Toms were perfect, just made for me.

I already have a pair of their Ash Canvas Classics in a size 7, my typical size, and I found these Geometry Toms to fit the same. I've tried on other Toms before that seem to run large, so I was worried buying these because they are nonrefundable, but they fit me perfectly.

I was happy to see that the equation for the area of a trapezoid was correct :)

What I'm Wearing:
Navy Geometry Women's Vegan Classics

Anthropologie Colored Pencils: The Look For Less


A few months ago, Anthropologie sold these amazing giant colored pencils. They were so cute and whimsical (they're nearly a foot long!), my husband and I wanted them for our son Noah (he's still a baby, but he'll be able to use them eventually!) We waited and waited and waited and they FINALLY went on sale - $19.95 with an additional 25% off. 

Now that price may still be a little high for some colored pencils that may end up being more of a decorative piece than for actual use. If that's the case for you, here's a less expensive alternative that can be found at your local T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, or Home Goods.

Branch Pencils
Set of 10

These pencils are not quite as long (only about 7"), but they're still adorable and quite frankly, more user-friendly for a toddler.

Perfectly housed in one of my Orla Kiely mugs :)
