Last Teaching Outfit in Armenia

Blouse- Target

Today my students become the teachers! For my final day at RAU, I gave a 4-hour introductory TEFL workshop to my students. I couldn't be prouder of them. :)

Going to miss teaching in Armenia, but please stay tuned to my Kazakh teaching outfits!

That's right, folks. Kazakhstan, here I come!

28 May

Today's a holiday in Armenia (so no work again). When I asked what holiday it is, everyone just said, "28 May".

Okay. That's good enough for me. Happy 28 May, everybody!

Grown-up Pants

Calvin Klein Pants- Nordstrom Rack (Part of a fab power-pant-suit)
Black Camisole- Nordstrom Rack
Lace Shirt- Marshall's
Wedges- TJ Maxx

These pants make me feel like a grown-up. If I wear them with the matching blazer, I feel like I should be holding an elected office. Wearing the pieces separately helps me tone down my attitude. ;)

Shout out to my new reader, Phi! Hey gurrrrrrl! Our names rhyme, and we're kindred spirits.

Out to a bar/concert, that is!

Faux-leather Leggings- H&M (Casablanca Mall, Morcco)
Jessica Simpson Boots- Marshall's (Ohio)
Shirt- TJ Maxx (Ohio)
Black Cardigan (not pictured, but you know the one!)- Zara (Florence, Italy)

Not really a teacher outfit, but I was just so thrilled that I worked up the courage to wear this out of the house that I had to post it.

This is quite a scandalous outfit in Armenia! No panty hose? Ինչու՞ - Inch'u?!  "But WHY?!"

"Because I'm American and I hate panty hose." And it's summer! That is the one thing that tips people off to my foreign-ness: I'm the girl without nylons under her jeans :P
