My Outfit Details: TOP White Camisole // SKIRT Black & White Floral Pattern Skirt // BRACELET Gold Link Bracelet // EARRINGS Statement Earrings (c/o) // NECKLACE Gold Choker Necklace // PURSE Tassel Crossbody Purse // SHOES Nude Suede Ankle Strap Sandals

Happy Monday everybody! 

I hope that you had a fabulous weekend. I spent yesterday in Santa Barbara, exploring my old stomping grounds (I went to college in SB/ Montecito). We went to the zoo, my favorite acai bowl place, and I grabbed a coffee from one of my favorite coffee shops! It was a Sunday well spent, and I am definitely heading into the weekend refreshed and rejuvenated. 

As a teacher, I am constantly looking for clothes that can double as both work attire and more day-to-day outfit opportunities (i.e. grabbing lunch, running errands, church, etc.) so that I can get the most use out of the items I invest in. At only $27, this black and white floral pattern skirt  was a piece that I could see as a teacher wardrobe staple and something I could also wear going out with the girls or on a date night with the hubby.  

I hope that you are having an awesome start to the beginning of this week! As for me, it is my last week teaching summer school. After this week, I will have three weeks to rest and recoup (and also get my wisdom teeth out -- eek!) before I will be heading back to prep for the 2018-2019 school year. Where did summer go?!?!?

nordstrom anniversary sale try-on

July 12, 2018

As you probably already well ware of, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started! After I got off work today, I promptly jetted over to the sale. I wasn't going to share a try-on season, but I received a few questions this morning about my picks for the sale. This will be the only blog post that I will be doing on the sale. I will be styling the items on my blog in outfit posts, but in hopes of not beating a dead horse . . . I will not be doing any other sale centered posts. 

In terms of this post, I will be discussing the items under each picture, the sizing, and why I picked these particular pieces. 

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! :) 





Sale Price $29.90 // Original Price $45.00 
This tank sweater fits TTS. I fell in love with this outfit, I loved how many options I have when it comes to styling this sweater tank. Even though it is labeled a "sweater" tank, it is lightweight and comfy. 

Sale Price $45.90 // Original Price $69.00
Fit is TTS. I loved how this tank and cardigan paired so well together. For my teacher wardrobe, I love throwing on cardigans over my outfits. I will be getting a ton of use out of this one. It also comes in five other colors. 

Sale Price $44.90 // Original Price $68.00
The sale had a wonderful selection of denim this year. I decided to pick up this pair since they had a unique hem line and they felt like butter! I got my normal size in these, but I probably could have sized down one if I wanted to.

If you are looking for more work appropriate pieces, this top is right up your alley. The bell sleeves are amazing, and the wrap style is beyond flattering. I bought my normal size, but you can size down if you want for a tighter and less billowy fit.

Everyone is freaking out about this top, and I can see why! It is so so so soft, and such a cozy staple. I am wearing my normal size.

I had a hard time picking a color to get for this cardigan, since it is available in 6 stunning colors. Once again, if you are a teacher, this is a great teacher wardrobe staple. I got my normal size.

Long Sleeve: BP. Ribbed Cardigan

Here is another cozy staple. I love how this one has buttons, which allows it to turn into a cardigan if you so desire. It also looks super cute tide at the bottom. It fights TTS.

This top is labeled as purple, but I feel like it looks more like a blush in person. It is so soft, and it looks great front-tucked. I got my normal size.

$30 bright colored maxi dress

July 7, 2018






















My Outfit Details: DRESS $30 Bright Colored Maxi Dress // EARRINGS Beaded Tassel Earrings (c/o) // BRACELET Gold Link Bracelet // SHOES Ankle Strap Heels // CLUTCH Beaded Clutch (similar linked) 

Have you ever found a perfect dress, and wished that you could own it in every color and pattern. Well, without further ado, I have found that dress--the one that you have been wishing and dreaming of! And it is at an amazing price point! 

While scouring the internet a couple weeks back, as I often do, I stumbled upon this adorable $30 maxi dress. Much to my surprise, I realized that it was available in not one . . . not two . . . but in twenty-four different and stunning colors. I decided upon the "cobalt" shade, but I definitely have my eyes on at least four or five of the other shades. 

In terms of life currently, it was a blistering 115 degrees out today. I had a fabulous day, full of food, shopping, and family time . . . but, I could have done with out all of the sweating and heat. Hopefully this heat wave will pass soon!
