Teacher Style: First Day of School

If you didn’t know, I’m an elementary special education teacher.  I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything!  I’m now back to work after a truly amazing summer and working on getting back into my routine for teaching.  Last Thursday was our official first day of school with students.  Even as a teacher I still get excited and nervous for the first day.  I also love to carefully pick out my first day of school outfit.  I’m sharing that outfit with you in this post!

Favorite Summer Reads

Besides fashion and travel, reading is a big passion of mine.  Rarely am I not in the middle of reading a book.  I love summertime because I have more time to read, which means I can cross more books off my to-read list.  This summer I read 26 books from June 1st until now.  Of those 26 books, I’m going to share with you my top favorites that stood out to me the most and that I would highly recommend.

LOFT Sale: Haul

I use to shop at the LOFT outlet quite frequently, but hadn’t shopped there in a couple years.  Recently I had been seeing some fashion bloggers posting really cute stuff from LOFT on Instagram, so I decided to check it out when I heard about a sale they were having!  LOFT recently had a sale where everything on the site was 40% off with the code OHYES.  With fall coming up and that great deal, I decided to take full advantage and stock up on some tops and sweaters.

Now there are some even better sales and deals on LOFT! Right now a lot of fully priced styles are 60% off, including the majority of what I ordered!  I might have to do another order since there are even better deals now!  Now let’s get into the Loft haul:

Belize: Travel Guide

I recently got back from an 11 day trip to Belize and had an amazing time!   I actually traveled solo on this trip with the tour company, EF College Break.  I’ve gone on a few trips before with this company, but Rachel has always gone with me.  EF College Break is for people ages 18-28, so unfortunately I only have a year left to travel with this company.  There were 42 others on this trip with me, along with a tour director.  I met a lot of new people and made some awesome new friends!  I highly suggest EF College Break if you want to travel, but don’t want to plan everything.  They literally take care of it all for you, which makes things much less stressful.

I thought it would be fun to share with you my travel experience in Belize.  To make things easier, I’m breaking things down into the places I went to.  For each place, I’ll share the highlights of the things I did there.  At the end of this post I’ll also be sharing with you tips, tricks, and hints for Belize that I learned prior to going there and while I was there.  Let’s get into it!

If you’ve been reading our blog for awhile or following us on Instagram, then you know that Rachel and I love wearing Lilly Pulitzer during the warmer months.  This summer I got some new Lilly Pulitzer pieces while I was in South Carolina.  Shout out to The Pink Cabana in Myrtle Beach and the wonderful ladies that helped my sisters and I pick out all of our Lilly goodies!   I’m excited to share this particular Lilly Pulitzer t-shirt dress with you because it’s perfect for summer and so versatile.  It may be August, but we still have at least a month left of wearing Lilly Pulitzer, depending on the weather where you live.

Utility Shirt OOTD

| American Eagle utility shirt | American Eagle Jeggings | Hope’s booties | Tory Burch cross-body purse | Tory Burch Earrings |

I just purchased this American Eagle utility shirt recently and have been very impatiently waiting to style it.  One important detail about this shirt that I love is the fact that it’s so soft.  It’s always refreshing to find a button up shirt that’s soft and not overly stiff.  This shirt could really be worn all year round as well, which is an added bonus.  I decided to style this shirt with cognac brown details because I really like the looks of this color combination.  I decided my new Tory Burch cross-body purse would look perfect with this outfit.  This is my first Tory Burch bag and I think it’s great for every day use.  It’s also the perfect size to fit everything I need.  I then finished off my look with these booties from Hope’s.  I think dainty, gold layered necklaces would also be a great added touch with this outfit.

Casual Winter Vegas OOTD

As you may have seen from our social media, Rachel and I were in Las Vegas this past weekend.  Coming from Minnesota’s cold winter, the weather in Vegas felt perfect to us.  It was around 60 degrees while we were there.  It was a short getaway, but so much fun!  We saw Britney Spear’s show, went to the Neon Museum, saw a Titanic Exhibit, ate lots of good food, and a did a bit of shopping.
