    Embroidered Olive Green Dress

    You all know green is my all-time favorite color but olive green is my favorite for fall. It’s the perfect fall color. It’s not as bright as mint or kelly green and has that darker, muted color. It’s also not as rich as emerald green so it’s that perfect in-between/transition color. And to top it off it goes amazingly well with creams and browns which I always associate with fall. So when I saw this olive green dress with the prettiest floral embroidery I had to have it. The colors in the embroidery are so pretty and considering I previously thought color combos involving olive green were limited, they go…

    Peep-Toe Booties for Fall

    It’s just about mid-October (what?!) and fall weather is definitely upon us. Except for the random extremely warm weather days that occur out of nowhere, we have started to settle into crisper weather. I love ankle booties anytime of the year, but they are especially popular in the fall. It’s just the right time of year to wear them. It’s too cool for sandals and perhaps you don’t want to break out the knee-high or over-the-knee boots just yet. Or maybe you just want to go for a different look than high boots. Booties are perfect and peep-toe booties? Even better for the seasonal transition. I have 2 pairs of…

    Chambray

    Chambray became really popular a few years ago. At first, I didn’t think it was for me – maybe it was memories of wearing uncomfortable, rough, denim shirts when I was in elementary school. As the chambray popularity grew, I started to see awesome styles with it and it grew on me. It wasn’t until this fall that I finally found the perfect one for me. I decided to dress it down for my post-Christmas day ootd with a Christmas graphic tee, burgundy stretch cords, and combat booties.

    Street Style: Houndstooth Blazer

    Street Style: Houndstooth Blazer by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring blue wall art A houndstooth piece is definitely on my wish list. A few weeks ago Polyvore posted one of their Street Style Challenges and it had to revolve around a houndstooth blazer. This is the one I chose. I paired it with skinny jeans, peep toe booties (also something I’d love to invest in), and an asymmetrical clutch. I actually got a similar clutch in cream a few weeks ago which I’ll have to post an outfit with soon. I decided to put this picture of London in the background, because when I think houndstooth, I think city chic. 2 things come…

    Casual Friday: Coral Stripes

    Happy Saturday! It’s a 3-day weekend for me, which I’m super excited about. I have been looking forward to this long weekend for a while. This week was especially busy and stressful for me, I’ve got 2 big blemishes to prove it, but I kept up with the posts here because blogging never feels like work to me. In fact, it’s something I look forward to doing every day! Yesterday was sort of a dreary day. It didn’t rain until the evening, but the whole day was cool and overcast. Since it was Friday and there are still no Friday staff shirts in sight, I wore jeans, a sweater and…

    Back to School Night OOTD

    Back to School Night was last night so I wanted to wear a dress to work. Since I would be at work until about 8:30 PM I wanted to wear a dress that was comfortable to be in all day. I debated wearing open toed nude heels or booties with the dress. It was in the 70s so it would’ve been completely fine to wear the heels, but since we are getting farther into September I do want to try to incorporate more fall pieces into the mix.    Sweater: J.Crew Factory Dress: Sleeveless Printed Dress (Spearmint)- American Rag via Macy’s Boots: Mix No. 6 via DSW Watch: Michael Kors My makeup was using…

    OOTD: Spirit Week – Class Color Day

    Yesterday was “Class Color Day” for Spirit Week at school. Spirit Week is always fun, but I think it is especially nice at my school because the students wear uniforms. It’s nice for them to have fun with their clothes and wear something of their own to school. I teach 2 grades, but since I am the advisor of one of the grades I decided to wear their color which was purple. I wore a purple sweater dress and booties. Sweater dresses are so comfortable and are usually nice enough to wear to work so it worked out perfectly. While sweater dresses are comfy, some are in a tricky way. Some…
