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

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

Pink Scalloped Dress

Teacher FashionistaFor Play, For Work, Special Occassions, Summer Fashion, Teacher Styles, Wear to Work2 Comments

You might remember when I shared my love for scallops in this previous post!  I can’t believe there is another scalloped dress in a new shade. How lucky can a girl get to find this gem in such a great summer color?! Top reasons I love scalloped hems: 1. They add a feminine vibe 2. They make a plain dress unique 3. They make it easy to look put-together   This scalloped dress can be as dressy as you want it to be. You could wear it as a wedding guest with sparkling heels like these and a cute statement necklace like this one. I love it as a Sunday dress, too! The nude sandal heels in this post are such a beautiful choice for summer and go so well … Read More

Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m highlighting summer dresses under $35 with New Look. (See a similar dress post I did with Forever 21 a few months back here.) I have put together another shopping board below with dresses that will take you to shopping dates, coffee and brunch on the weekends, and everything in between! (Note that New Look offers free shipping on orders over $95.) Whenever I find a new place to shop with so many great clothes and accessories, I just have to share! I already ordered the yellow maxi, as ever since I saw How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days years ago, I have been on the hunt for an eye-catching yellow dress. Other ones I am dying over are the palm … Read More

Maxi Dress Dream

This dress from Fashion Junkee is such a dream! Seriously. I have worn it once a week since I got it… to work, to church, shopping, and to dinner. Not only is the large floral pattern so feminine, the tube top is not too tight, and the dress has super cute pockets! I also just love it because it goes anywhere – dressed up or down, and it is such an easy yet put-together outfit. Whenever I wear tube tops, I love pairing them with bigger statement pieces, so this long beaded necklace worked perfectly. Maxi dresses are a summer staple in my closet – I could never own too many. I took this dress to work with a white denim vest. I … Read More

Hot Pink Shift Dress

Hot pink will brighten up anyone’s day! Today I am featuring a dress from The Mint Julep Boutique. It has a light, airy material and a nice bright hue… pair it with neon accessories like this necklace, and you are ready for summer! I wanted to style this dress for work, so I chose calmer colors to pair with it. I wore some neutral tassel sandals by Sshoes.  (Read more about these comfortable, quiet heels in this post.) This dress is comfortable and modest for work with the higher neckline and the length hitting near the knee. It has the cutest criss-cross design going down the sides. I always love little details like that! I could also see myself throwing on a jacket over … Read More

Today I am featuring the beautiful boutique Grace & Lace. The story behind the start of this shop is so touching, and I am honored to style some of their pieces. They have been featured on shows like Shark Tank and The View – so fans – check them out! Nothing welcomes spring like bright colors! Their Ikat Wrap comes in two colors and can be worn as a wrap, vest, scarf, or swimsuit cover-up. Anyone who knows me and my budget-friendly “hunts” all over the web knows I totally enjoy pieces that are versatile – so I love this wrap! I styled it a few different ways and thought the colorful pattern went so nicely with stripes! _________________________ Worn as a Wrap Outfit Details: Striped Dress  |  Ikat Wrap  … Read More

Scalloped Dress + Tassel Heels

Teacher FashionistaFeatured Collaborations, For Work, Professional, Summer Fashion, Teacher Styles, Wear to Work1 Comment

I have seen a number of beautiful scalloped skirts, dresses, and tops, but have not found a dress with beautiful scallops quite like this one! I think this navy dress is perfect – long enough to be professional for work, and pretty enough to take out for a Sunday in church. I paired it with these cute tassel heels! They are crafted by Ssh Shoes to be comfortable and quiet. This is just great for work because they have a non-slip, sound absorbing rubber sole, and a noise reducing heel so they do not make as much noise when you walk. There are multiple styles and colors – see more of their collections here.
