Happy Monday friends!

Today is my last day with my sweet firsties! I am excited to start my summer vacation, but I’m definitely going to miss this group of kiddos. It’s so bittersweet saying goodbye! Year after year I always think it will get a little easier, but it never does. After spending 180 days with these cuties, they definitely leave an imprint on your heart! 

With summer break comes more time to spend on the blog! I am finally done with my procert too and am going to be able to devote more time to my posts! I am excited to get back to a more normal blogging schedule!! 

Gingham has been EVERYWHERE recently and I am loving it! The moment I saw this top, I knew it would be the perfect piece of gingham to add to my summer wardrobe! Off the shoulder, ruffles and gingham?? Sold!

Can you believe it’s already June?!? The past few months have flown by!! Isn’t that always how it is when you have a ton of things to accomplish in a short amount of time? The next week and a half will be a little crazy for me as I finish the school year. I’ve got report cards to do, I will be moving classrooms and I will be completing my pro-cert. WHEW. I am so excited for my summer break to start!

Speaking of summer break, I’m sharing one of my go to summer combos. I wore this exact outfit in Mexico, and knew it would be on repeat all summer long. I actually took photos of it IN Mexico, but they didn’t turn out due to the humidity. We don’t have that problem here, and I never realized that it would cause your lens to fog up! What do those of you that deal with this do when this happens?! 

This top from Antique Garden is a summer must have! I love the color and the ruffle at the top. The best part is the slightly cropped fit, making it perfect for pairing with high-waisted denim! This is an easy outfit to throw on while running errands or enjoying the sunshine!!

Hey friends! 

I’ve been MIA this week dealing with the craziness that is the end of the school year. We have 18 days left and I still have SO much to do! My day consists of getting up at 5am, getting to work by 6:45am, leaving school around 3:30ish (depending on the day) running errands and then plopping down in front of my computer to work on my pro-teach portfolio (a teacher re-certification process). I am already dreaming of my lazy summer days ahead! 

I’ve share this cutie top on instagram a few times! I love the pretty pink, the detailing on the top and the little ruffle on the sleeves. It’s perfect for this time of year when the weather is all over the place! Pair it with jeans for a chillier spring day and swap them out for shorts when the weather is warmer!

Happy Thursday! Have you been enjoying the first few days of spring? I am excited to share not one, but two looks with you today! 

Spring brings fresh blooms, green grass and an urge to spring clean. This time of year I always start to go through my closet, getting rid of things I no longer wear and find myself in need of some fresh spring pieces to spruce up my wardrobe. Nordstrom has been my one stop shop for updating my closet for the new season. I love the daily new arrivals, (which I actually check daily…I don’t want to miss anything!) and the variety of pieces at varying price points. You are sure to find a new spring piece or two! When updating your wardrobe this spring, look for a few pieces to bring in to spruce up your existing items. Fun tops, bold earrings and on trend shoes are easy ways to add a little color and new life to your wardrobe! 

Fun Tops

Sometimes all your old denim needs is a fresh top to bring them new life for a new season. Adding a few tops in pretty floral prints, bright colors or with interesting details is the perfect way to update for spring! This bright off the shoulder top has the cutest pom detailing and can be transitioned from spring to summer. It’s a stand out piece that can be dressed up or down! A peplum tank, like this one, is an easy piece to style and a closet classic! Layer it with a denim jacket or sweater now and wear it as a swimsuit cover up for a trip to the beach.

Bold Earrings

There is no easier way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe then a great pair of earrings! It’s the easiest update you can make! Continue wearing your favorite closet staples, but add a fun pair of tasseled earrings like these or gorgeous drop earrings for the perfect spring pop. One of my favorite ways to wear statement earrings? Paired with a basic white tee and denim to let the earrings do allll of the talking! 

On Trend Shoes

There is nothing I love more than a new season of shoes. With the changing seasons comes the cutest new styles and I always love adding a few new trendy pairs to my closet! My favorites this season? A great block heel sandal and espadrilles of any kind! I love that this studded pair can be worn on the weekend or dressed up for date night! It doesn’t hurt that the studs add a fun detail! These slip on espadrilles are comfortable and cute! The best part? They are under $100 and come in a bunch of different colors!
