Silver Jeans: Dressing Down I think this Aiko skinny style looks so cute with an oversized tee.

Chambray Dress and Tassel Accessories

Teacher FashionistaBy Night, For Play, Summer Fashion, Weekend WearLeave a Comment

Today I’m sharing a look that is summer ready! I love chambray and all of the denim trends that are out right now, and this dress is so fun with the eyelet designs along the bottom of the hem! One thing I especially enjoy about styling chambray is how neutral it is. This makes it one of my favorite fabrics to add colors and extras to! I decided to accessorize this chambray dress with tassels – tassel earrings and Sshoes tassel wedges. Now I feel like I need to invest in a tassel crossbody bag or satchel… any suggestions? (Outfit details listed below.) In case you haven’t heard about Ssh Shoes, I wanted you to know they are designed to be comfortable and quiet. They have … Read More

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

Pastel Pink Blouse

During our transitional months from “winter” into spring in Arizona, our evenings are still pretty cool. So, when I look for something to wear on any given date night, I gravitate toward light long sleeves, and sometimes will tote a jacket along just in case. This pastel pink top is from She In, and works perfectly for a spring night out! Styling a Blouse for a Night Out I decided to wear it tucked into some slightly distressed skinnies, and then paired it with some ankle-strap pointy heels. I wore a cami underneath the blouse, as it is shear. The bottom edges of the blouse are straight and flowy, and should you decide to wear it untucked, it flows loosely. The … Read More

They are also a perfect transition … Read More
