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

Part of being a budget-conscious shopper is stretching your closet staples to fit into more than one season. Booties are so great for this! These faux-suede lace-up cut-out booties are from Fashion Junkee and also come in gray and camel brown. They are SO trendy right now the way they wrap around your ankles with such fun tassel ties. Take them from fall into spring and summer with these style tips: Find an ankle style with some openings in the design whether with a peep toe, cut-outs, or lace-ups. Pair them with shorts. Find some frayed, distressed denim in white, black, or blue jean. Make it a boho look with a summer vest or kimono, duster, wrap, or oversized sweater (for those cool nights). Match them to one of … Read More

Easter Sunday Best

Teacher FashionistaBy Day, Special Occassions, Summer Fashion, Weekend WearLeave a Comment

Easter brings to mind all things floral, spring, warm, pastel, and for me… even chocolate! 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. This memory lives on for me even still! I love finding a dress that emulates the spring season. In all of this fashionista fun, I stop in thankfulness for the sacrifice that was made for my soul, for your soul. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” – John 11:25-26 Jesus died as sacrifice for … Read More

Short Spring Shift Dress

Today I am talking about this colorful number from She In Clothing! I LOVE this dress. The reviews were raving and I am joining right in there with them! This is a short shift dress – perfect for a warm spring or summer date night or perhaps a wedding or special event! It is made of thick material and is also lined. I wore a strapless bra under mine so the straps and bra wouldn’t peep out the sides, but you could also do a stick-on bra or something similar. I spruced up the look with black accessories. My sister was so sweet to give me these fun fringe heels to use for a few months before spring hits Minnesota, and … Read More
