Secondly, we've entered the month of November and you know what THAT means: annoying holiday fundraisers for my kid's school!
My daughter is raising funds for her 5th grade camp trip through the awful, ineffective, "sell your parents unnecessary garbage" method that never works. Her camp trip is not only mandatory, it's also $225. I don't like when "mandatory" and "$225" are in the same sentence. I also don't like how my property taxes have literally doubled and yet the school still can't just fund this for every single student. I don't want to go on one of those "mah tax dollahs" rants, but I dooooooo. GET OFF MY LAWN.
Anyway, even though your kid is probably selling the same garbage as my kid, you should buy her garbage anyway because buying unnecessary crap we don't need is the American Way, and you don't want to be THAT guy who hates America. Only a communist would decide that they don't want to support the mandatory camping dreams of children. (If you're one of my family members and actually want to buy some garbage out of familial obligation, here's the link: https://www.shopfund.com/Shop?t=EM&sid=469510 and she's going to know who does and doesn't love her based on this. No pressure though.)
Here's what I wore while buying double-sided gift wrap for no reason from my daughter even though I know full well I'll end up writing that whole check for $225 anyway...
- Outerwear: black wool cape jacket by BCBG Max Azria
- Top: unstainable knit sweater by Elizabeth & Clarke (available HERE)
- Bottom: darkwash denim by Rag & Bone
- Shoes: burgundy velvet boots by 10 Crosby Derek Lam
- Jewelry: silver necklace from FabFitFun (FYI, I have some free starter boxes to send out! You get 3-4 full-size beauty products, but warning, you do have to pay shipping. If you want one, leave your email address in a comment and I'll send you the link)
- Sunglasses: Prada Baroque
- Bag: snakeskin tote bag from FabFitFun
I am LOVING sweater weather! Unfortunately so is my oldest daughter and half of my sweaters have mysteriously disappeared and reappeared in HER closet.
I can't even be mad at her. I stole my mom's clothes, my sister stole my clothes, and now my daughter must continue the great circle of sartorial shenanigans. The familly laws of property dictate that if I don't literally see her do it, I can't stop her, and that sweater is hers now. My only recourse? Steal it back when I do the laundry.
See you soon everyone! (FYI, I have a video I'm working on, discussing what to pack for a cruise!)
