Silver Jeans | Black Skinny Jeans | Dress up or down | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Ever find that perfect pair of jeans that can be dressed up or down and work with each look perfectly? First of all, I have to brag on my favorite brand of jeans… Silvers. This company knows fit SO well, and they get it right every time – hugging in all the right places and following the latest trends. My most recent pair are a new black skinny style that I found work well for Saturday errands or a night out. Silver Jeans: Dressing Down I think this Aiko skinny style looks so cute with an oversized tee. And, you can easily transition this look to fall by throwing on a scarf – namely a leopard one – and your … Read More

Maurices | Maurices Loves Teachers | Teacher Outfits | Teacherfashionista | Jules

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.

Choker Top | Grace and Lace | Knit Top | Teacherfashionista | Jules

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 lightweight 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

Grace & Lace | Striped Tee | Spring to Summer | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Transitioning into summer isn’t hard to do with light colors, airy tops, and gold accents. This Grace & Lace top has the prettiest flowy details all the way around that will flatter any silhouette. The way it drapes allows it to feel carefree while still looking put together enough to wear it to work. I think it will transition well into summer with a cute pair of shorts, too! It also comes in black and white stripes — I can never have too many of that color combo! I paired this top with skinny jeans, and then added gold accents to top off the look. This is sure to be a go-to top in your closet! And, for those cooler summer days … Read More

Nordstrom | Charlotte Tilbury | Makeup and Beauty | Teacherfashionista | Jules

I was so fortunate and honored to be invited to collaborate with Nordstrom and attend their Charlotte Tilbury launch at my local store on May 6th. I scheduled an appointment with their beauty counter in advance, and when I arrived, was greeted by all sorts of friendly and BEAUTIFUL makeup artists. They took me on a little tour of their event which included refreshing coconut water, inviting beauty stations, a DJ with some seriously rocking tunes, a “movie star” quality photo booth, and of course their gorgeous lit-up makeup counter featuring Charlotte Tilbury’s 10 different looks. Nina was my artist, and she proudly took her time telling me about each product she used in my “makeup makeover.” (The dress I wore is from Nordstrom, … Read More

Silver Jeans | Raw Hem | Floral Tank | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Raw hems and spring florals are a match made in heaven! Hello shabby-chic. Today’s post is dedicated to these two styles. My closet typically holds very classic pieces, but now and then I have to say it is fun to welcome what’s trending now. Silver Jeans: Suki Ankle Skinny Here’s a fresh take on an old favorite skinny jean: the Suki Ankle Skinny Dark Wash with a frayed hem by Silver Jeans Co. If you have been following me on Instagram & Instastories the past month, you know I have both a deep love for the Silver Jeans fit, and have owned various washes and styles of Silver Jeans – loving them all. I am a girl with curves in the middle (if you know what I mean), and I don’t … Read More

Brittany's Baby Shower | Baby Shower | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Today you’re getting something new from my blog: A guest post! I had the absolute honor of co-hosting a baby shower for my Instagram-turned-real-life-friend Brittany. She used to be a teacher, and we both love eating and girl time, so we hit it off right away. I am blessed to know her, and can hardly wait to meet her baby girl.

Navy Tunic Sweater | Grace & Lace | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Today I am sharing another blog-worthy look from Grace & Lace. This tunic top will be such a great piece for transitioning into spring. Because it is a sort of knit-lace material, it is breezy, light, and comfortable. The neck can be worn completely off-the-shoulders, or scrunched up for more of a boat-neck look like I wore it. I layered this open-knit tunic with a navy undergarment, but it would also look awesome with something white underneath. I know that once it’s warm enough out, this will go so perfectly with a pair of white denim shorts, a white layering tank, and some platform wedge sandals. (Spring and summer tan come quickly, lol!)  Outfit Details:  My jeans are out of stock, these are almost identical   |  c/o Romantic Lace … Read More
