Keepin' it REAL 100.
A student today stayed after class and remarked, "You know, Mrs. Kent, you've never worn the same outfit, or shoes, twice." While I would love to admit that it's true, it's only partially true. I believe in keeping a fresh atmosphere for my students and for myself when it comes to my clothing. I want to keep them guessing a little bit...
IS that the same shirt? Are those new shoes? Maybe. Okay, chances are HIGHLY likely it is new or remixed, because I never like to wear the same thing twice. Does it happen? Sure, but you'll never know it!
To me, it's all about engagement. I hope every day that my content is engaging to my students, but in the off chance it is not, I hope that I can somehow engage them with my sparkling personality or my sense of style. ;) Whatever it takes for them to muster a care in order to attend my class and feel included in these little daily doses of Room 120. I like to keep it interesting. I'll never forget one of my high school English teachers was remarkably beautiful, always put together, and smart as a whip! I admired that so much, I wanted to do the same.
Part of the reason I started this blog was to give young women, middle-aged women, older women, teachers, and anyone else interested, an inspiration to style their life in a confident, fun manner.
