Styling Teacher Outfits with Maurices

Styling “teacher outfits” with Maurices has been so much fun! If you’ve followed me on Instagram for any length of time, you know that I have shopped there from high school until now. I simply adore their “girl next door” affordable styles. Everything I’m featuring from Maurices in this post is under $45. They have it all – from casual wear and work wear, to active-wear, accessories, and shoes!Β Maurices sponsored this shopping trip so I could share their versatile styles with fellow teachers, and shoppers on a budget. Floral Dress: From Summer to Fall with Jackets + Booties This criss-cross front floral dress is so easy to throw on! It’s a jersey fabric, so you don’t have to worry about … Read More

Knit Choker Top

As school begins, we all start dreaming of cooler temperatures, chunky knits, and pumpkin everything (just me?). Well, in some parts of the country, this is still a good month or two off. (We keep hitting temperatures above 100 degrees here!) There’s this choker top from Grace & Lace which is unique because it’s a lightweightΒ summer knit. It follows trends with cute side slits and a criss cross pattern on the neckline. And, as the cool temperatures eventually sneak in, it will look really chic under a moto jacket! I wore this top to school/work with white skinny pants yesterday and loved how it was long enough to cover me in the back. I wore a white cami underneath to … Read More

A Summer to Fall Dress

School will be in full swing come Monday, but for now I want to focus on the fact that today is FRIDAY and I am really looking forward to the weekend to rest. I have had mostly 12 hour days getting my classroom ready – but things finally came together – yay! Now I can get my brain into teaching mode! When I noticed this dress (and the $29.90 sale price!) I decided to snag it. I know navy is a wonderful color for both summer and fall, as it goes with neutrals and browns so well. To make this work appropriate in our summer heat, I think styling it with sandals and a denim or waterfall vest would look … Read More

Back to School: Grey Denim, 2 Tops

The 2017-18 school year is here! Teachers in my district are going back for Inservice this week, and students come August 7th. You guys is it just me, or did those 2 months of summer break absolutely fly by?! I feel like every year my summer break goes quicker than the last! We moved from the house we’d been renting for 2.5 years (our landlord decided to sell it) into an apartment (and storage unit) right as the school year was ending, so I do feel like I spent a lot of my summer trying to get us settled in a bit. I always feel blessed to have time off in the summer, though, and know that is a perk … Read More

Grand Canyon Village: Our Travel + Recommendations

It’s been about a week since we got back from 5 wonderful days in the Grand Canyon South Rim Village! This was my first time seeing the Grand Canyon in person, and you guys, it took my breath away… literally! It was incredibly immense, colorful, deep, and soooo worth seeing (and checking off my bucket list!). E had seen the Canyon in his twenties, and was able to experience the views with snow. I must admit I would love to see it in the winter also. While I share our travel with you, I thought I would also give some recommendations in case you also have this vast “hole” on your bucket list, too! The first evening we were in … Read More
