I am a strong believer that white should be worn year round. There really is nothing better than a crisp white dress whether summer or fall! This option is perfectly boho and I immediately became obsessed with the crochet detailing and wide sleeves. I can definitely see myself wearing this with OTK boots when it get’s cooler, and with wedges in the summertime!
You might remember seeing this dress a few weeks ago when I showed you how I wore it to work (here). There’s nothing like a versatile dress that you can style for work and the weekend! A checkered dress is a fun and easy print to mix and match for different occasions. This option from Sweetest Stitch is easily one of my favorites. The shirtdress style makes it flattering and easy to wear and you can’t go wrong with black and white! For a Friday night date night, I paired it with an easy trench, my go to booties and of course a hat!
Guys, there is nothing better for fall than a pair of great grey skinny jeans! This pair fits like an absolute glove and go with just about anything. I am loving grey tones for fall! I paired them with a plain, sheer white top, a turquoise necklace and my favorite black booties for an easy fall outfit. I topped it off with my new Kelly Wynne wristlet that I am also obsessing over at the moment! I can’t get over the fun fringe and retro black croco. This is a wristlet that will be used year round!
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!
