    Restyled: Lace Kimono + Patterned Swing Dress

    Just 2 days left to the school year! I can’t believe it! I’m hustling to get all my grading and work done, but so far so good. I’ll finally be able to breathe next week once everything is all done and I go back to work to finish packing up my classroom. In the meantime, today I’m sharing this restyling of a lace kimono and patterned swing dress. Both items are old, but I saw them hanging near each other in my closet the other day and thought they would look great together. Dress: Old Navy | Sandals: Target My lace kimono was a birthday or Christmas gift a few…

    Tie Dye Cinch Waist Tee

    Another day, another cropped length tee, but again I’m okay with it since I’m wearing it with high-waisted bottoms. The tie dye in this tee are so light colored that it’s perfect for people who like tie dye, but not the vibrant sort of tie dye. Or if you’re unsure if you like the trend, then this tee is the perfect foray into the style. The tee is super soft and lightweight with cuffed short sleeves. The waist also has a drawstring to cinch it. Tee: American Eagle (here) | Leggings: Express | Sandals: Vici The tee comes in 5 color options and I got it in this tie dye…

    Orange Floral Cropped Peplum

    I can’t believe it’s the last week of school already. The school year really flew by and especially these last 3 months teaching virtually. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been teaching my students via Zoom since mid-March. I feel bad for my students who are missing actually seeing their friends and classmates and I feel especially bad for the seniors who missed out on prom, the last days of senior year, and a normal graduation. I’m working on a blog post for the end of the week, reminiscing about my high school senior year which was pretty long ago now. Anyway, today I’m sharing this orange floral cropped smock…

    Floral Babydoll Top

    I’ve really been loving babydoll tops lately because they’re so flowy and comfortable. Plus, I think many of us have put on a few quarantine pounds with the extra eating and less moving around, so babydoll tops are perfect to still look cute, but not be in anything form fitting. This babydoll top has a really pretty floral print, which I think looks almost tropical. The material is like a linen-y type material and the back has really cute faux buttons! Top: The Mint Julep Boutique (here) | Jeans: Express | Sandals: Vici This top is still available in size small. I’m wearing a small for reference. *This post contains affiliate…

    Smocked Babydoll Maxi Dress

    I love maxi dresses and I think I’m going to make a point of wearing more of them this summer. Of course, that means I need to buy more, which isn’t great for my wallet. But anyway, this smocked babydoll maxi dress is one I recently got and it’s so good that’s it’s already sold out! I love the color and the beautiful floral print. The sleeves are semi-sheer and it’s so comfortable to wear. Dress: American Eagle | Sandals: Target Since my dress is sold out, I’ve rounded up some other smocked maxi dresses for you!   Wishing you a good week ahead! I have just 2 school weeks…

    Restyled: Leopard Duster + Denim Shorts

    Back in October, I wore this grey leopard, super soft, duster with black leggings and a mint green tank top. I thought I would restyle it for the warmer weather with denim shorts. It’s nice for when you’re cold in the air conditioning and wearing it with shorts keeps you comfortable outside in the mild or even warm weather. Duster: Pink Lily Boutique (here) | Tank Top: J.Crew | Shorts: Sonoma Goods for Life via Kohl’s | Sandals: Target | Ring: Baublebar I love the way dusters look with shorts. So stylish and practical. My duster is still available, too, just fyi! I hope you have a good Saturday! And if…

    Heart Pavé Necklace

    I participated in #BlackOutTuesday yesterday on Instagram and only posted on my stories and Twitter with information, resources, news articles etc. I plan to address this on my feed today, but on my Instagram feed I am planning to go back to my normal content photos today. But I want to make clear that just because my photos may be my own and not about current social issues, does not mean that I am not a supporter of the movement and against all forms of racism and police brutality. I feel the best way for me to serve, besides practicing what I preach, signing petitions, donating where I can etc.…

    Striped French Terry Pullover

    I hope you all had a good weekend or as good as possible considering the state of the world. I wrote in a little more depth about my feelings about current events on Instagram yesterday and I, as always, I’m most vocal about current events and politics on my Twitter. But on to today’s post. Whenever a clothing item is labeled “french terry” it catches my attention because french terry is so soft and that perfect mid-weight material. Not too thin, but not thick either. So when I saw that this white and navy blue striped pullover had a quarter zip detail and cinched hem and was french terry –…

    Leopard Lightning Tee

    As you guys know, I love a good graphic tee and when I find one that is unique and not everyone has, it makes it even better. That’s the case with this tee because I literally cannot find one like it to link to! The color is the grey-ish blue color and it features a leopard face with super cool blue eyes and a lightning bolt through the face. So different! The tee also has distressing, making it edgier. The tee is a little long so I took some photos of it untucked and also front tucked so you can get an idea of how it looks. I wore it with…

    Frosted Blueberry Garden Peplum

    I love the color/print names LOFT comes up with. This super pretty blue floral printed peplum top is called “Frosted Blueberry Garden”. How perfect is that?! I wore this short sleeve top with white jeggings the other day. I think the top would look great with blue jeans or black pants too, but there’s something about pairing it with white that makes it just pop perfectly. Top: LOFT (here) | Pants: Uniqlo | Bracelet: Pandora I love that this peplum is a loose fitting knit so it’s comfortable and not form fitting. My top is still available and on sale plus an additional 50% off with code FRIEND. Have a…
