Easy Summer Dress

 Off the Shoulder Dress c/o // Sandals // Bag // Sunnies 

In the summertime, there is nothing I love more than an easy to wear dress. Something I can throw on and go, to run errands, go to dinner or go to the beach. This has been my FAVE dress this summer. The stripes and tassel detailing and the off the shoulder style make this the perfect summer dress! It doesn't hurt that it's only $12 either!!

Summer Overalls

This pair of overalls is one of my closet essentials! I've had the same pair for about 3 years and continue to wear them from season to season! If you've followed along for awhile, you may have seen them here, here, here, here and here and plenty of other places! Like I said, I wear them from season to season! 

One way I love to style them in the summer is with a pretty top. Something with a little ruffle, like this $20 top (a total steal!), adds the perfect feminine touch. It's an easy summer look for date night or running errands!

Summer to Fall Ruffles

 Outfit 1: Ruffle Sleeve Top // Denim Cutoffs // Pearl Slides // Similar Bag Here and Here // Pendant Necklace

Outfit 2: Ruffle Sleeve Top // Jeans (Under $60) // Open Toe Booties // Similar Bag Here and Here // Pendant Necklace

One trend I have been loving all summer long is ruffles, and if the new arrivals section at Nordstrom is any indication, it looks like they are coming with us into fall! From ruffled sleeves to ruffled hems there are SO many cute options for the new season. I love that I can find my favorite trends at Nordstrom at prices that don't break the bank! 

When shopping, I've been looking for pieces with long sleeves and breezy fabrics that I can wear now and as the weather changes. The moment I saw this gorgeous ruffle sleeve top, I knew it was one I could wear from season to season! I fell in love with the gorgeous mauve color, but it also comes in a pretty light blue and black! 

The great thing about this top is how versatile it is! I'm wearing it now with my favorite cutoffs and will wear it with jeans and booties in the fall (as pictured below), but I also love how easily it can be dressed up or down! This top would be perfect for date night!

capri BLUE & Me

A new school year is upon us and I am soaking up every last minute of my summer vacation. I've already headed back into my classroom to get the room ready for the kiddos and have had some meetings to plan and discuss the new year. The start to a new school year is so hectic and it takes some time to get back into my routine! Between teaching and blogging, it definitely feels like I have two full time jobs and it's important to remember to take "ME" time! 

I have ALWAYS been a fan of capri BLUE products. Their Volcano scent has been one of my signatures for years! That tropical fruit and sugared citrus is a blend like NO other. Infusing my day with capri BLUE products is an easy way to ensure I make a little time for myself each day! Today I am sharing my favorite capri BLUE products and how I use them throughout my day to make those crazy days much more enjoyable! 

My summer mornings start early. I love waking up, making a cup of coffee and reading a good book...something I don't get to do often during the school year. Lazy mornings spent in cozy pjs, wrapped up in blanket, are my FAVORITE. My capri BLUE reed diffuser in the Volcano scent is one of my morning must haves! The delicious citrus meets sugar scent is perfect for waking me up and getting me energized to start the day! 

Around mid-morning, after I've had breakfast, showered and dressed for the day, I'm ready to start being productive! In the summer, this mid-morning time is used for making to-do lists and planning blog content. My capri BLUE candle in the Volcano scent is a mainstay on my work desk! There is something about working with a candle that keeps me calm, cool and collected. I love the mercury candle bowl too...it's a gorgeous desk accessory! 

In August, I start heading into my classroom to get ready for the new school year. I often have meetings to attend, an open house and spend a TON of time in my classroom getting things organized for a new group of students. My capri BLUE hand cream goes from my bag to my desk. It's the small things in life, like using a luxurious, delicious smelling hand cream that puts a little pep in my step! I tried the Blue Jean scent and it might be my new favorite! I love the smell of this fresh linen blend! 

Is there anything better than a bubble bath after a jam-packed day of activities? A good bubble bath is the perfect way to wind down and end my day. This capri BLUE soap in the Volcano scent is my favorite way to pamper my skin. It smells AMAZING and is super hydrating and doesn't dry out my skin! 

Throughout my hectic day, there is nothing better than using capri BLUE products to infuse good vibes into my daily routine. The perfect way to take a minute to pamper myself with a heavenly scent and be ready to take on the rest of the day!!

What are your favorite ways to take a little ME time during a crazy day?
