Summer to Fall Dress | Floral Dress | Nordstrom | Teacherfashionista | Jules

School will be in full swing come Monday, but for now I want to focus on the fact that today is FRIDAY and I am really looking forward to the weekend to rest. I have had mostly 12 hour days getting my classroom ready – but things finally came together – yay! Now I can get my brain into teaching mode! When I noticed this dress (and the $29.90 sale price!) I decided to snag it. I know navy is a wonderful color for both summer and fall, as it goes with neutrals and browns so well. To make this work appropriate in our summer heat, I think styling it with sandals and a denim or waterfall vest would look … Read More

Hanky Hem Dress + Life Lately

Teacher FashionistaMy Closet, Summer FashionLeave a Comment

Maurices just gets me. I have been a long-time shopper at this favorite boutique since back in high school. I grew up in rural southern Minnesota, which left me shopping at Walmart, ShopKo, and even Pamida! So once Maurices popped up in our teeny tiny mall, my sisters and I were ecstatic and went ALL THE TIME. They have been my go-to for dress pants, dresses, work clothes, casual clothes, jewelry, and shoes. I bought my first pair of Silver Jeans back in the day there, too! So it is no surprise that my recent visit found me in this amazing Hanky Hem dress. After I put it on, I just knew it was for me. The fit is easy-going, … Read More

Pink Scalloped Dress

You might remember when I shared my love for scallops in this previous post!  I can’t believe there is another scalloped dress in a new shade. How lucky can a girl get to find this gem in such a great summer color?! Top reasons I love scalloped hems: 1. They add a feminine vibe 2. They make a plain dress unique 3. They make it easy to look put-together   This scalloped dress can be as dressy as you want it to be. You could wear it as a wedding guest with sparkling heels like these and a cute statement necklace like this one. I love it as a Sunday dress, too! The nude sandal heels in this post are such a beautiful choice for summer and go so well … Read More

Vibrant Summer Maxi

Bennie C’s Boutique has a number of affordable, simple, and beautiful clothing choices. I enjoy finding these little boutiques because then you end up with unique pieces you don’t see on everyone else. Here I go again – expanding the maxi dress section of my closet. And I don’t mind one little bit! The vibrant colors in this maxi make it stand out in any crowd. It is a perfect choice for a warm, summer day as the material is light-weight, and it has side slits to the knees on both sides. The dress is lined, which is nice so you don’t get stuck trying to wear a slip on a hot day. I found wearing a bandeau helped me feel comfortable and modest, and you … Read More

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

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
