    Drawstring Dress

    I have a quick post today featuring the outfit I wore for the last day of work/school on Tuesday. I wanted to share it since I posted way back in September what I wore for the first day. Back then, I wore a white floral dress, rose gold jewelry, and brown wedged sandals. By no means is it very dressy, but it was on the dressier side of casual. For the last day of school I decided to wear this light blue, drawstring dress. I think as the year goes on, I and many others, tend to gradually go more and more casual in our looks. First days are always…

    2 Looks – 1 Work Day

    There are only 2 work days left to the school year for me! I still have a few things to do though such as cleaning out my classroom and prepare for Tuesday night’s graduation, which I’m the host for (eek! I have a fear of microphones). I’ll be posting about that in a few days to share how that went and share my look! As the school year winds down, it’s been a lot of finishing up things and having some fun. We had field day for the high schoolers on Thursday at a nearby park which is huge. For the day outdoors, in the sun, I wore jeans, a tee…

    Cut-Out Pullover

    Another snow day! Seems like the perfect time for this post. Sometimes you’re just staying at home and you don’t feel like wearing “real” clothes, but you also want to wear something cuter than your pajama pants and a hoodie. Enter this cute, boxy cut-out pullover I recently got from Victoria’s Secret, grey leggings and boot socks. Pullover: Boxy Cut-Out Pullover – Victoria’s Secret Tank Top: Hanes Leggings: SO via Kohls Boot Socks: American Eagle So why wear cute lounge-wear? I see it the same as when I put makeup on when I’m just going to be staying in at home all day. Looking cute, even if it’s just in comfy, lounge-wear can help…

    Day to Night: Muted Florals

    I’m so happy to be able to bring you another day to night look. I’ve done this once so far (here) and hope to get to do it more often. I wore this floral top to work the other day. It’s got front pockets and it’s one of those button downs with the hidden buttons. I brought a black cardigan with me to work and ended up wearing it all day since the mornings and nights here have been in the negative degrees lately! Cardigan: American Apparel Top: LOFT Pants: LOFT Shoes: Aldo via DSW Watch: Michael Kors After work, I met up with a girl friend and decided to keep the cardigan and floral…

    Rose Gold Rose Sweater

    I hope you all had a great weekend! I’m off from work today for President’s Day so luckily it’s still the weekend for me, but tomorrow it’ll be back to the same old same old for me. Rose gold is one of my favorites in jewelry and in makeup. When I came across this sweater recently that had large rose embellishments on it in the form of rose gold beads I was sold. The design is fun and perfect for what I wore it to – a casual dinner with friends. Sweater: Apt. 9 Embellished French Terry Sweatshirt (Light Moonbeam) via Kohls Pants: Uniqlo Boots: Steve Madden Watch: Kate Spade The sweater, like the other…

    Hi-Lo Plaid Shirt

    The day after Thanksgiving is not normally a day where people look and feel their best. You’re recovering from your food coma and if you ate throughout the day like me, you are definitely not about to wear that form fitting sweater on Friday. I decided to wear a loose fitting hi-lo plaid top. I absolutely love the colors in this plaid top. The purplish-grey and teal/turquoise stripes are a match made in plaid heaven. I was really tempted to wear leggings on that day, I even put them on, but then I decided to wear stretchy, skinny jeans instead because I was going out to dinner with my family…

    Bow & Bead Accent Stripes OOTD

    I mentioned last week that Fridays at work are casual wear, which I greatly enjoy until our staff shirts arrive. I’ve been a little under the weather this week, just like pretty much everyone else I know, so I wanted to wear something easy. Something I could just throw on and still look cute without any effort really. Shirt: Loft Jeans: Gap Watch: Anne Klein I went with a loose grey shirt-sleeve top that has black horizontal stripes. The stripes have little beads and a few bows placed on the stripes which really dresses up the shirt. I was comfortable in the top since it’s a soft material and loose and didn’t have to sacrifice any…

    OOTD: Casual/Staying in

    Some days we just want to be comfortable. Scratch that – I always want to be comfortable, but some days you’re not doing much or really going out in public and even though you’re hanging out with people it’s people who don’t care what you look like. Yesterday I spent time at my best friend’s house. She had a baby less than a month ago and our plan was just to stay in and hang out. I thought I’d show you what I wore and what I would typically wear for this kind of day. I knew I didn’t need to wear much makeup because we weren’t going out and my…
