Back to School with Mikarose

 Dress: ‘Maya’ Maxi c/o Mikarose // Vest: American Eagle (old) similar here and here // Bag: Tory Burch c/o // Shoes: Jack Rogers ‘Lauren’ in White // Hat: Target // Bracelets: Bauble Bar ‘Pave Carrie Cuff’ and Taudrey ‘Roman Numeral Cuff’ c/o  // Earrings: Bauble Bar ‘Volcano Drops’ c/o  // 

I can’t believe that it is already mid-August. This summer has flown by and in just a few weeks time I will head back to work. I can’t lie, while I am a summer girl through and through, I am just a little excited to start wearing my favorite fall pieces again! This cargo vest has been one of my staples for a few years now. I got so excited when we had a chillier summer day and I could pull it out. It paired so perfectly over my Mikarose maxi dress! This is definitely an outfit I will be wearing in September to school. It is the perfect teacher-outfit as it is comfy and modest! I am loving a lot of the clothing over at Mikarose for the modesty factor. As a first grade teacher, I need clothes that are easy to move in while still being professional and I am blown away by all of the fantastic options Mikarose has to offer!

This outfit is one I will re-create often and you can too! I’ve linked a bunch of similar military vest options below and check out all of the adorable maxi dress options here!

    Love that dress! I was super impressed with the selection at Mika Rose. This came in timely as I am looking for a short sleeved, striped maxi dress 🙂 When I saw your post, I was like "perfect!" 🙂

    I absolutely adore this look!! I have a similar dress except it's black with white stripes. I think I might have to use this as my inspiration for an outfit next weekend!

    I love that cargo vest! I have a black one and I tend to shove it towards the back of my closet because I never know what to wear with it. Thanks so much for the inspiration – pairing it with a maxi is perfect!

    As far as I started my working period, I don't have time at all and that's pretty hard sometimes. Because I'm still a student and my university has a lot of things for me as well. So, I'm working, using that makes my life much easier. At least, that's amazing writing service and I'm happy just to read everything they write.
