Put a little bling in it

It's not written in any rule that I have to wear a uniform to school, but I do try to dress casual and comfortable. Who says I can't wear a sparkly blouse to preschool that harkens more to evening wear?

This morning I searched my cram-packed closet because I never have anything to wear. You know how that is. I opened the sliding door from the other end and yanked the first thing. I smiled. I liked it. I hadn't seen it in a year. I've worn this top maybe three times. I have deemed it inappropriate for work and rarely go anyplace fancy-schmancy, so it was relegated to the rear of the closet.

My little charges will ooh and ahh when they see me this morning wearing my deep pink blouse, lightly adorned with clear sequins.

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and sparkle it up a bit. Open your closet from the back side, write a story that resonates, put a little bling in your own swing. Self-imposed rules are made to be broken.

Enjoyed this blog entry this morning! It was just right (write) for how I am feeling. The sun MIGHT be out today and even the hint of light makes me want to sparkle like a diamond!

Funny - I've felt like the universe has been trying to tell me this lately, too. Bet the children loved your fancy-schmancy shirt!

"Put a little bling in your swing." I love that phrase, Linda.

Go Linda! If anyone can put bling in their swing, it's you! You sparkly pink siren you! Bet the kids LOVED it. Susan

I'll let you be the blingin' swinger. I'd be better off to put my backside in the closet, with hopes it doesn't resonate.

I'll bet those little kidders loved your bling, Linda! And yep, I like to mix it up every once in a while. ;-)

I think we could all use a little color and sparkle in our lives. It makes the day brighter.

BTW, great to see you on Saturday. I enjoyed catching up!

So glad you had a little bling to your swing that day, Linda. But truly, you don't need bling to sparkle -- you already do!

I love sequins! :)

Well, we can all use a little bling, of one variety or another, in our lives. Ironically, I wrote about breaking the rules from an entirely different perspective today, so I found your post a fun read.

We can all use a little bling in our swing, even if we are not "swingin' quite like we used to" - thanks for a smile.

Ah, I bet your class loved seeing your sparkly attire. :D
