Yes, classroom chic. Because this girl right here *points at self* is a teacher!!!! *and the crowd goes wild* AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! This goes out to my 12th grade AP Calculus AB teacher who looked at me one day and said, "Stephanie, you should be a teacher." She must've seen something in me that, at the time, I hadn't seen in myself but now it's seeping from my pores. Hip-hip Hooray!!!!

Ok, I'm calm now. Yes, I am officially a co-teacher at the best school in Albany and I will be teaching 8th grade math starting Monday. *raises roof* If my excitement isn't oozing off this page, then I must be doing something incredibly wrong. Hehe. Most of my students will call me Ms. U. The elite will aim for the full Ms. Ukpere. I'll let you know how many get it right.

This is what I wore to my first day of Professional Development (PD). My goal was to embody the 3 C's: cool, comfortable and CUTE! I was cool. I was comfortable. And I sure think I was cute! How did I do?!

I look tired in many of the pictures...that's because I was. I tried, but obviously failed, to hide it. I'll do better next time, I promise!

WARNING: DO NOT JUDGE ME for the photo underneath this warning. I look divalicious. You have been warned.

Until next time!

Bracelets: icing | Flats: Macy's

What I'm Wearing
Blouse: thrifted | Pencil Skirt: H&M | Necklace: (gift) | Flats: (gift)

Many of my campers notice my sense of style and automatically assume that I'm some sort of a fashion model. Few of them know that I run a fashion blog. So, when Ondia asked me if she could be featured on chocolate laced, not only was I humbled, I was so excited to see how she would put everything together.

Ondia is an 8th grade leader of tomorrow. Not only is she stunningly dressed to impress, she has a beautiful and powerful mind. She's truly an ispiration. She writes poetry, dances, and is a wonderful older sister setting a wonderful example for her many siblings.

A lil' bit about Ondia

In 5 years I see myself..as a student of a HBCU

At first, she didn't know how to pose but, with little coaching, she became a natural!

I don't know about you but I think she embodied chocolate laced to the absolute fullest. I loved her outfit so much that I asked her to bring it on a hanger the next day so I could add it to my closet (still waiting Ondia!)

Strawberry Covered Chocolate












What I'm Wearing
Earrings: F21 | Necklaces: NY&C + Icing | Rings: Assorted
Strawberry Sweater: Talbots | Full Red Skirt: ebay ($12) | Suede Pumps: Talbots

As some of you may have noticed, in my recent posts, I have been sporting a LOT of Talbots items. It's hard not to shop at the place you work (especially when so many of the items are of such great quality and structure!). So, when I found this strawberry sweater folded perfectly and singing sweetly in my direction, I knew I had to add it to my never ending collection.

I knew the exact outfit I wanted to wear with the sweater, too. Only issue: I didn't even have the skirt in my closet. I literally purchased the skirt JUST so I could wear it with the sweater. Am I bad or what? (Don't answer that!)

But... seriously... how CUTE is it? One of my co-workers said she'd start calling me strawberry TALL-cake! Haha!

Have you ever shopped at Talbots? (Now would be a great time: 60% off markdown items! If that's not a deal, I don't know WHAT IS...

Until next time!
