School has officially started hence the lack of posts around these parts! It was a busy few days getting my classroom ready, and I spent a lot of hours making sure things were ready to go. All of you teachers know that no matter how much time you spend in the classroom it really is never enough!! Wednesday the 2nd was the official first day, and it was a good one! I forgot how little the first graders are when they start compared to how much they grow by the end of the year! It will take me some time getting back in to the swing of working full time and blogging while I find a balance that works, so thanks ahead of time for being patient with me!
This mixed prints combo was what I wore the first day of school, plus a denim jacket over to top it off as it was a little chillier than expected. Would you believe me if I told you this outfit (top and bottom) was under $25? I headed to Old Navy recently to pick up a few new things for school and this top and skirt immediately jumped out at me! I love easy to wear pieces, and the mixed prints adds a fun element. This top was $11 and the skirt was just $10. These are pieces I can mix into my teaching wardrobe all year long! Head in to Old Navy asap for the labor day sales! I promise you will find a steal of a deal or two!

This week’s blogger of the week from last week’s link up is Amanda Miller of The Miller Affect! Fall is just around the corner, and I have been so drawn to deep reds that Amanda’s little maroon dress totally fits the bill! I can’t get over the lace detailing and deep v-neck. Paired with some leopard pumps and a perfect clutch, Amanda is absolutely killing it! I can’t wait to re-create this look this fall!
This outfit was the perfect outfit for traveling when Ernie and I went on our mini-moon to Victoria, Canada at the beginning of the month. Soft jogger pants are my new go-to when I know I will be spending lots of time in a car or on a plane. This patterned pair caught my eye at Target. I loved the color combo and fun print and the price couldn’t be beat (under $25)! Pairing them with a white tank and a denim jacket (it was much cooler in Victoria than I expected), was the perfect comfy and casual outfit for our day of traveling and our first night out!
Keeping it short and sweet today! This has been one of my go to outfits for the chillier days and evenings we have been having. I love throwing this scarf on over anything and everything! If you follow me on instagram (@twentiesgirlstyle), you know I wore it a ton on my honeymoon in Canada! These booties from Emu Australia are my latest obsession. They are the perfect shoes to take in to fall as they are open toed, but have a soft faux suede that is perfect for transitioning seasons!

This week’s blogger of the week from last week’s link up is Jan of Jan Loves M. I am loving Jan’s laid-back look. Her detailed denim and fringe bag really adds some fun touches to her adorable outfit! I’m also loving that she accessorized so simply with some dainty layered necklaces!
I have wanted a Home T FOREVER (hence the excitement in the picture below…). What better way to show a little state pride?? Not only is this the cutest tee, but it is so comfy! I’ve already decided I am ordering this one asap. It’s a Disney-fantatic’s must have!! I also love that the Home T donates some of the proceeds to non-profit organizations. You definitely need a Home T in your life!
I’ve been a little MIA lately as I have meetings all this week and am also spending lots of time in the classroom getting it all ready for my new first graders! As sad as I am to see summer go, I’m getting really excited to get this year started!
