    Gold Snowflakes

    After a beautiful day on Wednesday that gave us a glimpse of spring, it was dark, gloomy, and rainy for the past 2 days. It’s supposed to rain again today and tomorrow! No snow in the forecast, but I’m sharing this grey sweatshirt with gold foil snowflakes today for a fun, cozy sweatshirt on this rainy day. Sweatshirt: Kohl’s | Pants: Uniqlo | Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs I love that the back of this lightweight sweatshirt is just a tad longer. It looks cool that way with the side slits. Gold snowflakes all over a sweatshirt is cute no matter what, but the fact that the snowflakes are foiled makes…

    Gold: Layered + Sequins

    For years I didn’t really care for yellow gold. I didn’t like the look of it and much preferred silver or white gold. But in recent years I’ve started to really like yellow gold again. Don’t know why, but I’m not complaining! I’d been looking for a necklace just like this for years. A layered necklace with little gold discs – small enough to look like gold confetti. But I either couldn’t find one I liked or they were too expensive. When I spotted this Amber Layered Y-Chain Necklace from Baublebar during all the Black Friday sales, I had to have it! I love the layers and the length. I…

    East & Linbrooke Bracelet

    Today is a long day for me as I’ve got Back to School Night tonight at work. As I write this (this post is scheduled to go up) my plan is to go home for the few hours I have between the school day and the event so I can have some down time before heading back to work. Since this is going to be a long, tiring day for me let’s talk about something happy! East & Linbrooke is an online shop crafting and selling items ranging from earrings to needlepoint coasters. Brooke, the founder, does all the handcraft items herself! The shop and I got in touch with each…

    Touches of Gold

    Snow day! We thought we were in the clear for spring and just like that a blizzard makes its way to us. I just hope I won’t be snowed in for long. I’ve mentioned it on here before, but in recent years I’ve taken a liking to gold – yellow gold to be exact. For most of my teen years and 20s I liked white gold and silver more because I felt yellow gold was too flashy and bright. But I really like yellow gold now. This look I’m sharing today isn’t all about jewelry at all actually, but I felt my love for yellow gold now was worth mentioning.…

    Knot Print + Gold Details

    We’ve made it to the middle of the week! It’s been a busy week and it’s only going to get more hectic for the next few weeks. It’s making me exhausted just thinking about what I need to get done in the next 2 weeks! So with that being said I have a quick post for today. If you’ve been following me for a while then you already know I love zipper details/exposed zippers. In recent years I have also grown to really love gold detailing as well. When I was younger I wasn’t a fan of yellow gold, but recently I’ve really started to like and love the hue. The…

    Retro Inspired Grad Look

    It’s my first day of summer break! While I have quite a bit of work to do over the summer to prepare for next school year (for those of you new to my blog, I’m a high school teacher) a mental break right now is highly needed. Last night was graduation and yours truly was the host. I’ve helped out at past graduations, usually tasked with reading the student’s names aloud so they can come and accept their diplomas. But, this year my senior class asked me to not only read out names for diplomas but to host the entire event. Those who know me very well know that I…

    Gold Details

    My gold kick hasn’t subsided yet so I’m still very much all about the gold. The other night I decided to incorporate gold details into my whole look for an evening out. First, I wore these ankle zip skinny jeans. They are a semi-dark wash with adorable gold zippers at the ankles. Then, I wore this black and white striped top with gold sequin details on the shoulders. The gold on the shoulders, or any shoulder details for that matter, definitely add a little something to an outfit. It dresses up the look and takes it from casual to dressy. The shoulder details are on both shoulders but my hair…
