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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I Bought The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is SO good, guys, although I was disappointed in this year’s affordable dress selection. Have any of you already done your shopping? I can’t wait for my purchases to arrive so I can share what I bought! …I had so many things in my cart, and when I went to the check out had to narrow it down based on the list I had made before the sale started. Good thing I had done that… IT WAS HARD! I was dying over all of the great basic sweaters and sweatshirts this year, but really felt I needed to update in other areas of my closet. I ended up with things … Read More

Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on a budget?! I know that literally hundreds of bloggers will be covering this popular sale, but I am hoping to cover things that I look for, purchase as a teacher on a budget, as well as my favorite picks under $50. Last year I blogged about the big SALE in this post, and had a blast sharing my shopping experience. There is so much hype around the sale, and honestly I didn’t even know it existed until I started following mega fashion bloggers 3+ years ago. Once I started learning what the sale was all about, I began using it to shop for staples and additions to my wardrobe that can be worn multiple … Read More

Stripes | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Happy July, all! I am kicking it off with summer stripes and a giveaway! (Read to the end for the Nordstrom gift card giveaway we are offering in time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!) July brings my last full month of being off work, and I am ready to just soak it all in!

Luckily, stripes are perfect for an effortless look! And, who isn’t about effortless in the summer?  My favorite thing to do to stripes is add interest with some pops of color. With this dress I … Read More
