Front & Back Pleated Top

Pleats are a style detail I love. Pleated skirts, pleated dresses, peplums with pleated details – such a classic look. So when I saw this short sleeve blouse had pleats in the front¬†and the back I knew it would be a great top for work. Top: Banana Republic Factory | Watch: Anne Klein The pleats…

Dark Floral + Lace Sleeves

Okay, I know I share a lot of dresses on here and I pretty much always say I love the dress, but I¬†really love the dress I’m sharing today. It just might be my current favorite dress in my closet. Earlier in the spring I was at the mall and had no plans to stop…

Sage Floral + Stripes

Today is my first day of my summer break and it doesn’t feel like it. In fact, aside from the fact that my classroom was in disarray yesterday and the kids were kinda crazy it didn’t feel like the end of a year. This could also be due to the fact that I feel like…

Check Republic: Gingham Dress

  Check Republic: Gingham Dress by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Lilly Pulitzer Gingham is the quintessential summer pattern. Sure, it reminds me of a picnic tablecloth, but it’s just so cute! For the gingham challenge on Polyvore, I chose this navy dress with a criss cross back because I think the open back is so pretty for…

OTS Crochet Top + Boho Sandals

Happy Saturday! As I’ve mentioned a few times already this spring, I’m totally into the OTS or off-the-shoulder trend this year so I’m back with another OTS top today and it won’t be the last this season. I got this white OTS top with crochet detailing at the top back in the fall on sale…

Apple Print + Lace

With 4 school days left to work it’s only fitting that I share this peasant top today featuring lace, bell sleeves, and apple print. I wonder how the whole apple for a teacher thing got started. Anyone know? I actually did get an apple from a student once a few years ago. My student said…

Tropical Multi-Hued Pendant

Months ago I saw that Swarovski had come out with a collection of pieces that had a fun tropical look. Blue/green gems with crystals that resembled palm trees and palm leafs. All the pieces looked beautiful but I was immediately drawn to a large multi-hued pendant on a long chain called the “Gisele Necklace”. It…

Autumn Lilac Willow Peplum

How was your weekend? I have 6 school days left to work! Today I’m sharing this look I wore to work a few weeks ago. I love peplum tops because they’re so fun and I think they can suit any body type. This peplum top has a wispy willow print and the shade is “autumn…

Lace: Cropped Sweater + Dress Extender

Back in the fall I ordered two items from Grace and Lace. I wrote about the lace extender I got in a restyling post (here) and today I’m writing about the lace dress extender I got. I wanted to pair it with a cropped sweater I have with a lace overlay in the front for…

Say What: Statement T-Shirts

  Say What: Statement T-Shirts by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring king pillowcases I love statement t-shirts but they have to be cute and/or clever and funny. I think they can be really fun to wear like this “Namaste in Bed” one. I’ve seen shirts like this on social media for a few years now and it still…

Dark Floral Shirt Dress

I bought this dress on a whim from Old Navy and when I wore it to work a few weeks ago it was a huge hit. Honestly, I was surprised it was such a hit! I mean, I’m a fan of florals and shirt dresses and obviously I liked this dress enough to buy it,…

Lemon Spritz Floral

This tee just makes me so happy to wear. I mean, you can’t even look at it without feeling happy! I think it’s the lemon color and the sweet floral design. It looks so summery and gives me a vintage vibe. Tee: LOFT | Leggings: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s I think the floral print…
