Cheer Me Up Brights!

Do bright colors cheer you up? I needed some cheering up today! Today was the first day back to getting 5am wake up calls to substitute teach. Although, I got the 7:30am wake up call to be there ASAP today (School started at 8am)!!! Let's just say this morning was chaotic! I didn't even get to pack my lunch I was SO rushed! Being rushed is one of the worst feelings in the world, to me anyways! Surprisingly, it turned out to be a pretty good day (so thankful). The 4th grade class I had was awesome and lots of fun! I think wearing my bright skinny pants and bright earrings made my day brighter. Also, the staff was so sweet, they had a luncheon today and invited me to join (thank goodness because I didn't pack a lunch). :) Well, everyone has been wearing bright colors to bring on Spring, but my bright colors just brought constant snow, all day long!!! Haha! Just my luck! How was everyone else's Tuesday?? Was it as crazy as mine?

 
Yellow Cutout Drop Earrings from Forever21 (this year) similar to these for $3.80!!
Cable Knit Faux Fur Collar Vest from Loft (last year) similar to this for $49.88.
Ruffled Demin Blouse from Loft (last year) similar to this cute one for $17.80!
Peach Skinny Pants from Forever 21 (Last year and they still have them!!) for $15.80!!
Indigo Booties borrowed from my mom from Eddie Bauer for $69.99
similar to these for $38.50!!!
 
 
Also, I told you my mom and I were cleaning both our closets out yesterday! Well, I felt so accomplished when we were finished. I can never clean my closet by myself because I wouldn't get rid of anything. My mom and I are brutal, which is a good thing!! We both thanked each other over and over! It took us a little over 5 hours to do both of them!!! I have to show you all the bags we filled and took to Goodwill!! Our dining room was full!!! Haha! :)
 
 
So glad we did it and it's done!!
How often do you clean out your closet? Do you need a brutal person to help you too?

  6. I love this outfit, we both wore brights yesterday :) and well done on clearing out your wardrobe!! That is a lot to get rid of, I bet it feels so good. I try do mine once a year but I am so bad at it and have to really build myself up to it. I am on the verge of a major one right now though, any day now I will snap and do it lol.
