exciting updates

Saturday, March 25, 2017

I've been MIA for quite some time. It is all with good reason - I swear! I've been super busy with a lot of teaching projects but now it is spring break. While I love the actually teaching part of the job, the breaks aren't half bad ;)

I want to send a huge thank you to those that have reached out to me wondering where I've gone and why I hadn't been posting. Its nice to know people are reading this thing!

There are going to be some pretty sweet updates coming to the site and a lot more content. Also expect some guest posts by some of my stylish teacher friends, along with my stylish "boring job" friends as well (hehe).

STAY TUNED!

The One With The Chanel Slingbacks

Monday, March 6, 2017



I wanted to hate these; everything about them screamed older woman in open toed shoes whilst wearing flesh toned panty hose*. Basically my worst fashion nightmare.

*If you or someone you know is struggling with this addiction - ask for help. It is not too late. Email me and I can help  ;)

Flutter of the Bells

Friday, February 24, 2017

Flutter and bell sleeves GALORE! I absolutely love this trend - it is a great transition trend that emerged in fall and has been carried throughout sweater weather and into our spring wardrobes. One of the best aspects of this trend is the varying ways in which it can be worn. You can wear a sweater alone or layered over a collared shirt; a plain black dress immediately becomes a statement piece or your coat can "wow" onlookers.

You are in control of the amount of volume you want in your sleeves. There are tons of different options out there - ranging from tiny flares for cuffs to giant bulbs starting at the shoulder. Your consumer wish is the supplier's command...or something like that.

PSA: Store Credit No' Mo'

Monday, February 20, 2017

This is a public service announcement - unsponsored (obviously).

Forever21 has changed their return policy. You now get a full REFUND!

For the longest time, I would binge purchase clothes off the website. The flashing lights, cheap prices, and trendy pieces would always get me. Inevitably after the high wore off I was stuck with a box of hideous items, three sizes too small, all of varying quality.

Random Acts of Kindness Week

Monday, February 13, 2017


This week is "Random Acts of Kindness Week". Nothing makes me feel better than doing a random act of kindness for someone. Throughout the year, I like to do these acts anonymously so that I get absolutely nothing in return. Getting "even" takes away the magic and thoughtfulness of the act. I don't share the things I do with anyone, not even my family; so if they are reading this, which I know they are (hi mom!), they will be surprised.

While it doesn't take a national holiday for me to complete random acts of kindness - the holiday helps bring attention within schools across the nation. My classroom is participating in the building-wide kindness initiative. We will also be completing some additional activities that are more specific to our room's student population - ELLs.

In an effort to kick off this week...
