In lieu of today’s Sale Alert I decided to do a little Fall round up of some great pieces all under $100. I want to mention that those bootsup there are under $30! And actually comfortable….you’re not walking on clouds or anything but they aren’t bad. Jo Malone just release a new fragrance, Wood Sage and Sea Salt, and I love love it. It’s a great spicy fragrance for Fall. This sweaterhas the most amazing detail. This is for sure something that would look great with a fluted skirt or with some black skinnies. You could even wear it to brunch with distressed denim and ballet flats. Happy Shopping!
If you know me, you know I have a thing for bags. It all started when I was six years old. All I wanted for Christmas was this brown leather purse from JCPenny. My family loves to laugh about that Christmas because that purse was all I could talk, think or ask about. Christmas came and Santa delivered. I was the happiest six year old on the block. I sported that purse all day and it never left my shoulder. My mom eventually peeled it off me once I was asleep.
To this day, my family jokes about that purse and loves to give me a hard time about my ever growing purse collection. But who can blame them. A girl knows what she wants!
Fast forward 21 years, and this Cleo Tote by Elaine Turneris a great addition to the collection. My six year old self would be so proud! I love the size and shape. I actually use this for school to carry my laptop, papers and lesson plans. Elaine Turner never disappoints with the quality of her bags and shoes! To see more from her collection, visit here!
I know you all can join in with me when I say, TGIF. What a week it has been! I wanted to share a quick recap of my short stay in NYC last weekend. I was so grateful to have the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week and even though my stay was short, it was amazing. I loved getting to see a few shows, meet with some great brands, and see fellow blogger friends. Get all the outfit details below and to see more head over to my instagram! Thanks for reading and happy weekend! xx
You know when you find that dress that is so easy to take from day to night? Well this is mine. This dress has it all! Fun print, great length and so comfortable. Funny thing. Not only was this dress my first look for Fashion Week, but also the dress I wore on the first day of school. Who knew it could be suitable for both occasions!
Stay tuned for a short re-cap of my trip! Thanks for reading! xx
In my book, weekends are meant for two things: brunch and sleeping in. But now that school is back in session, I have a few more responsibilities. My weekends now mostly consist of getting my grocery shopping done, preparing for blog content, catching up on emails, and grading papers. While grading papers isn’t always at the top of my list, (I know my teacher friends totally agree!) I do enjoy grading in an enjoyable environment. Since the weather is getting nice, I plan to spend my weekends outdoors as much as possible.
For my third look with Nine West, Fall was on the brain. During Fall, I love to wear oversized sweaters, skinny jeans and short boots like the Jareth Booties from Nine West. This is one look that will be on heavy rotation this Fall!
Happy Monday! Last week, I shared my Back to School looks with Nine West. And this week, I’m continuing the theme by sharing what goes on before I actually step in the classroom.
The first order of business is figuring out what to wear in the mornings. I wish I could always be organized and have it picked out the night before, but you know how that goes! For work, I like to keep it casual, yet professional. These black pants, classic white blouse and peep toe booties from Nine West are one of my favorite combos for Fall. I love a little heel and this is one that I can definitely sport while on my feet. They’re so comfortable!
I like to arrive at school early to prep for the day. But before I can do any of that, I make a most essential coffee run. I usually grab an iced coffee to go, and head to school. I love sipping my coffee and making any last minute adjustments to my lessons or activities.
A stylish, but comfortable outfit and a highly caffeinated beverage make for a great start to the day!
In just a few short hours, I will be on my way to experience my very first Fashion Week in New York City. I am so excited to be traveling with dear friends, Bishop & Holland, and I can’t wait to share some exciting collaborations & projects with you! Oh and I know you are all thinking, a teacher at fashion week?! So yes, a teacher at fashion week. Crazy!
Packing for an event like Fashion Week can be an exciting, yet daunting task. However, I was so excited when Portero wanted to team up to share my packing list for NYFW. Porterois one of the leading companies in selling authentic, vintage bags and the only place I go to for gently used accessories. ThisLouis Vuitton Duffle from Portero was the perfect size for a quick trip. Not only does it do the job, but it looks great too!
Back to School is in full swing. And as I step back into the classroom, I am thrilled to be partnering with Nine Westfor a new school year. Today, I am sharing with you a behind-the-scenes look of my “home away from home” and how I stay chic in my classroom!
As most of you know, I love to dress up. But when it comes to teaching (and being on my feet all day), comfort is key. These Nine West Leopard Smocking Sippers immediately caught my eye. I knew they would be a pair that would work so well in the classroom and on the weekend.
If you step in to my room, you will first notice the bright and colorful atmosphere. I make it a priority to keep my classroom looking exciting and engaging for my students. I want them to feel happy and eager to learn when they come in each morning!
One of the best parts of my job is that each day is different. Sure. There is the structure. And we always have to follow a schedule. But the lessons, the interactions, and students’ goals change from day to day. It’s exciting and challenging all at the same time!
In my 5 years of teaching, I have learned a few things: No matter what, the show must go on; Always have a plan B; and a cute pair of shoes can get you through the day!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! I don’t know about you but I sure did enjoy an extra day to sleep in and do some things on our new house. We finally got around to getting our night stands (added a little DIY touch…more coming soon), hung some curtains and bought some new items for decorating. Nothing big, just things we needed to get done!
Over the weekend I wore this feather print tunic, new boyfriend jeans and (the best) leather tote for a long brunch followed by errands. Side note: I was so scared to try boyfriend jeans (especially because I ordered these online-sized down!) but once I got past the fact that yes, they are more “relaxed”, I quickly grew to love them. A fun tunic paired with good denim is my kind of weekend wear.
I hope all of you are enjoying your extra day off! I wanted to share a few of my favorite sales going on and they end today! Whether you are in the market for some new home accessories, or back to school clothes, or those Tory Burch boots you’ve had your eye on, I got you covered! And the best part, it’s all on sale. Happy Shopping!
