Time. We use it to countdown to vacations, to capture a moment and to keep ourselves moving forward. Sometimes it feels like time drags on forever, other times it flies. Timing is everything in teaching, which is why I always wear a watch. Continue Reading
A few years back, Caitlin, from Southern Curls and Pearls, wrote a post featuring the J.Crew puffer vest. It was love at first sight! I immediately headed over to J.Crew to purchase the vest and to my horror, it was sold out!
Fast forward a few months later, I am shopping at J.Crew and they have the puffer vest in store! It wasn’t the white one I had been eyeing, but the bright pink was fun and caught my eye. Also, it was on sale, so I knew it was meant to be. I wore that vest all winter long. As a result, the vest became an essential part of my wardrobe and now I add a new color every year. This orange version of the vest, aptly named Heather Tigerlily is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. The orange color is rich and the perfect tone for fall.

Friends, I have found the best fall cardigan from Nordstrom. It’s so good, I own it in two colors. Oh, and did I mention it is less than fifty dollars? I love it so much, I am considering buying it in black and light grey as well.
The start of the school year is always a very busy time! My teacher friends and I plan a get together in December, because we know the odds of us finding time September through November is slim to none! Bearing that in mind, I also hardly have time to shop. My weekends are spent unwinding and then gearing back up for the start of the school week. This is why I am so glad I discovered Trunk Club for WomenContinue Reading
I’ll be the first to admit that there are some clothing items in my closet that are very “teacherly”. When I tried on this sweater blazer from J.Crew, I knew it was the perfect addition to my teacher wardrobe. Continue Reading
Fall is hands down my favorite time of year. The weather cools and there’s a crispness to the air. It’s a time when all things pumpkin line the aisles at Trader Joes and chunky, cozy sweaters are an every day staple. When it comes to clothing this season, I’m loving all the fall styles: earth tones, soft textures, mens-inspired wear and vintage style jeans.Continue Reading
About a year ago, I sorted through jewelry from my middle school and high school days. Amongst the fake jewels and friendship bracelets, I found a few velvet chokers. I remember shopping for them at Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe and Claire’s back in the day and LOVING them! Looking at them, I thought to myself, “I will never wear those again!” and tossed them into the trash. Well, fast forward a year, and guess who’s back, back again? No, not Eminem, but the beloved choker trend. Continue Reading
Backpacks. I am surrounded by them everyday. From Pokemon to bright pink zig-zags, Disney princesses, surf and skate brands, I always assumed they were designed with students in mind or the hard core back trail hiker. However, my preconceived notions quickly faded when I met a very stylish backpack. Continue Reading
