Peplum Top | Fashion Junkee | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Before I dive into the topic at hand, how is it already mid October? Is anyone else baffled at how quickly the months pass by? Maybe it’s because we are still holding onto summer temperatures in Arizona, but maybe it’s because life is full, blessed, and E & I are always looking for what is in store for us next! Gray Peplum Top Peplum tops are so flattering, and this flowy one is no exception! It is roomy, light-weight, and has such a “girl next door” appeal. I chose this gray peplum top from Fashion Junkee because I knew it would double for work wear with black pants (these are my FAVORITE work pants!) or weekend wear with a favorite … Read More

Summer to Fall Dress | Floral Dress | Nordstrom | Teacherfashionista | Jules

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

Teacher FashionistaFor Work, Summer Fashion, Teacher StylesLeave a Comment

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

Red, white & blue tops | 4th of July Outfit | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Another festive holiday is almost upon us and it’s time to style our red, white & blue tops. I hardly ever wear red, but when 4th of July week comes, I pull out my red tops and tees, and start matching them with my favorite shorts, skirts, and jeans! This year Target has really stepped it up, and I have found so many perfect light-weight summer tops. This red ruffle top was no exception! I paired it with a denim skirt, thinking that is a great look for a family BBQ or pool party.

Putting Together a Quick Date Night Look

Teacher FashionistaFor Play, My Closet, Summer Fashion, Weekend WearLeave a Comment

Achieving a casual date night look with your closet staples can get you a pretty classic and put-together outfit. Last minute date night? No problem. Look around for your favorite pair of jeans, a white tee, and then start pulling in colors with a fun bag or clutch, and of course jewelry. The hardest decision might be if you want to wear flats or heels! In the summer, a good compromise is a fun pair of wedges. Using staple pieces can bring an outfit together quickly for any last minute plans to go out. The Denim Raw hems are all the rage this season, so you can imagine my excitement when Silver Jeans fashioned my favorite Sukis with this trend! … 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

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
