Looking for capsule wardrobes for 2017 or ways to style the same pieces with a new spin? This post is dedicated to styling just a few pieces in multiple ways.

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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Nordstrom | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Hey all! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally LIVE for cardholders! (It is available to non-cardholders on July 22nd.) I wanted to share what pieces I’m currently loving during the popular sale that are all under $50! Plus, at the end of this post, I am sharing what I bought! Shop my favorite #NSale clothes, jewelry, bags, and shoes under $50 by clicking any of the items below. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites Under $50 Last year, my favorite “splurge” was these Vince Camuto boots. I wore them on repeat SO many times (see this blog post, and I wore them again here, here, and here), so they were worth the investment. As a teacher I definitely need to stick to budget shopping pretty much all the time (and I really don’t mind … Read More

One Dress 4 Ways

You may have noticed (especially if you follow along on Instagram) that I have had so much fun layering with dresses! I guess in Arizona, our temperatures allow us to do that pretty easily during our “cool” months. I wanted to share a recent gem I found – a navy swing dress! Old Navy sold the most beautiful burgundy dress in the fall season (see that post here), and unfortunately I was too late to order it in more than one color. Since the day it sold out, I have been on the hunt for a dress just like it. And friends, my search is up! This dress is from SheIn Clothing, and is long enough for work, and the material is thick and flattering. It comes … Read More

Lapel Blazer

Teacher FashionistaBy Day, Featured Collaborations, Weekend Wear, Winter FashionLeave a Comment

Some weeks I can hardly WAIT for another weekend! Eric and I usually do an activity whether it’s hiking, brunching (yes I’m calling that an activity, lol!), driving around, enjoying a local event, or hanging out with friends. Right now the weather in Arizona is amazing and is calling for light long sleeves. However, by mid afternoon, I’m ready for short sleeves! A wonderful solution to this dare I say, “problem” – is a casual blazer. I love how it keeps me warm enough while still allowing me to wear short sleeves underneath in case I get too warm. It also kind of dresses up my outfit at the same time – win win! Styling a Lapel Blazer with my Mimosa Tee This … Read More

Snowy Weekend with Silver Jeans

To celebrate the long MLK Jr. Holiday weekend, E and I traveled almost 2 hours north to enjoy some peace and solitude in the snow! We packed up the truck and our two pups, and had such a fun and relaxing time at a cabin! While we were there, I couldn’t resist taking some photos in the snow. I decided this would be a beautiful place to showcase the new Suki Mid Skinny destroyed denim by Silver Jeans! I have shared in this post why I love the Suki fit.  They hug my body so well, and I am in LOVE with the distresses on this pair.

Tunics are such a fabulous piece to have in your wardrobe for fall and winter! They are long and flowy, and can take you from work to a night out, and into the weekend with style. I found my tunic at Nordstrom Rack for a little over $30, and also saw this similar one for those of you who may not want a collar. (I also usually layer my tunics with a cami like this one.) 3 Ways to Style your Tunic to help Maximize your Wardrobe (Please pardon the way my tunic is glowing in these photos – that’s the beauty of using an iPhone & snap remote!) 1.

Winter Plaid

Teacher FashionistaBy Day, Casual, Teacher Styles, Wear to Work, Weekend Wear, Winter FashionLeave a Comment

January is here! Full swing into winter! I especially love pulling out blacks and whites, and then adding pops of color with either a vest, bag, scarf, or jewelry. With the season comes the promise of boots and tights weather, and it is so fun to find pretty little dresses to go with them! I received this dress for my birthday from my sister and think it’s a gorgeous winter plaid. I found that pairing it with tights (or even leggings) really brought it into the colder season. Styling Winter Plaid Since Arizona gets such a mild winter, I thought the sleeves looked cute cuffed up, although the sleeve length was just perfect when they were left down, too! E gave me this beautiful cross body bag for my … Read More

Cozy-Chic with SheIn

It may be bright and sunny, but Arizona is feeling highs in the mid-50’s, which means sweater weather! I welcome the cool temperatures with open arms and open wallet! LOL! I love finding sweaters that do the job of both looking cute and being warm sans coat. Another plus? Finding budget-friendly deals! That is exactly what I have found with SheIn Clothing. Seriously – between all of their cute, affordable clothing and usable accessories – I could go crazy! Today I am sharing a cozy-chic outfit from SheIn Clothing including an over-sized knit sweater complimented by faux leather skinnies and a bucket bag!
