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

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

Sunday Best: Scalloped Easter Dress

White Easter Dress | Scalloped Hem | Teacherfashionista | Jules

My fashion journey today stems from my past “obsession” when I was younger (read more here), and Easter fashion is no exception! When I was a little girl, my favorite thing about Easter was picking out which spring dress I was going to pull out for Easter Sunday’s church service. My sisters and I always did this together, and it was so fun putting those black Mary Janes away and pulling out our white sandals. This memory lives on for me even still! I love finding a dress that emulates the spring season. With all of the fun that comes with Easter, in thankfulness I pause for the sacrifice that was made for you and me – the reason we celebrate Easter. Jesus said to her, … Read More

Knit-Lace Navy Tunic

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

Holiday Party | Holiday Dress | Faux Wrap Dress | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Finding a party look that works for cold temperatures can be challenging at times. Lace, elbow sleeves, comfort, and a flattering silhouette are some of the first things I search for when it comes to planning a holiday party outfit. Normally, I am all about finding a color or displaying my love for sequins and sparkle around Christmas or New Year’s, but the fit of this dress and the classy vibe it gives off drew me right in! I love classic pieces, and who doesn’t swoon over a flattering wrap dress? This faux-wrap dress is easy to wear and looks put together. The fabric is casual, but I dressed it up a lot by adding sparkle with my heels and shiny necklace. Picture a … Read More

Casual Holiday Wear | Teacherfashionista | Jules

How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Did any of you get out to shop over Black Friday? E and I had the best little getaway over Thanksgiving at a rental cabin 3 hours north of Phoenix. It was chilly with lows in the 20’s and highs in the 40’s – so we stayed cozy inside, eating our turkey near the heat, and watching Christmas movies together with our 2 pups. Friday we went out exploring nearby, and took our dogs on a walk in the woods once the temperatures got above 40 degrees. Friday was a chance for me to break out a festive-looking outfit! Not only were we driving around site-seeing in perfectly chilly weather, we also got lunch, and then … Read More

Army Green Waterfall Cardigan | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Happy Thanksgiving week! What is everyone doing over the holiday weekend? E and I are driving north 2 hours with our two pups to a cabin for a few days to enjoy the fact that November has finally brought us some clouds and cool temperatures! I just love this “fall in Arizona” time of year! It’s time to pull out the long sleeves, boots, and sweaters. After almost 9 months in my summer clothes and shoes, I am so happy to pull out pieces like this beautiful olive green waterfall cardigan! Not only am I in love with the color, I think the waterfall front is so feminine and adds a unique look to this tie top. It’s polyester, so this is … Read More
