After 5: Floral Blazer

Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” -Bill Blass

Whether you believe it or not, working in the education system is a very challenging career field. Teachers work round the clock to update student work, grade assignments every night, make phone calls home, and deal with occasional behavior problems.

With all these tasks, an educator may need an outlet after work. If you are that teacher, or know that teacher, that needs a couple drinks after work, you can’t come to Happy Hour looking a mess. No one wants to see a hard working man or woman look in shambles after work. Well, if you are a young, expereinced teacher like Ms. Kira Brown, you never let your career interfere with your wardrobe.

For this feature, we would like introduce everyone to Kira!

Below are some photos from our shoot with Ms. Kira. Check out her “After 5″ look below!

Advice: Making Your Own Magic

“She believed in the possibility of a fairy tale. So she created her own magic, by taking a chance.”

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a realist. I come from parents who believed that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Always apply for two to three colleges, in case your first choice doesn’t work out. Get a job, go to grad school if you can’t get one, get a PhD, if not, get an MBA. Never quit a job unless you have another job lined up first. For every plan A there must be a plan B. Now this is all fine and good for practical, solid things like school and getting jobs and what not. But the one thing you can never have a plan for, is love.

Like that’s obvious right? At least it should be. Except that if you’re a constant Type A, the idea of falling in love can be this….odd, intangible, ambiguous happening that you can’t wrap your head around. There have been hundreds of songs, books, and movies about how it happens. Boy looks over at girl. Their eyes lock. Boom, dassit. Or they casually ‘bump’ into each other in the street, because it’s fate and that’s what supposed to happen. That was all it took, and now they are living their happily ever after.
