J. Crew Factory Casual, Winter OOTD

Happy Friday!  It’s been awhile since our last blog post.  Honestly we’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately.   This time of the year can be a bit hard for us fashion-wise.  Winter starts to feel long and we end up feeling like we wear the same outfits and shoes on repeat.  Hopefully we’ll get back into posting blog posts consistently very soon!

On another note- we’re at that awkward time in the year where you want to start shopping for spring, yet it’s still really cold outside(at least if you live somewhere where it truly feels like winter).  I’ve definitely been tempted to start shopping for spring clothes, but I’ve resisted since spring is nowhere near in sight for me.  You’ll find me bundled up in sweaters for at least another month.  Since I’m still wearing winter clothes and will be for awhile, today I’m sharing with you another cozy, winter outfit.

Casual Style Featuring The Home T

Nothing is better than a cozy, soft t-shirt!  The Home T delivers when it comes to soft, quality shirts while showing off your state pride.  Along with tops, The Home T also offers accessories, home, and decor items.  There’s another big reason why we’re loving this company.  The Home T donates 10% of their profits to multiple sclerosis research.  We really appreciate companies that donate part of their profits like this.  Plus, The Home T appeared on Shark Tank, which is one of our favorite shows!

In today’s blog post we’re styling two of their classic t-shirts: the v-neck and crew neck.  These t-shirts can be styled so many ways!  We can’t wait for it to warm up again so we can wear our t-shirts with cropped pants or shorts.  These t-shirts would look great with converses as well.  Now let’s get into how we styled these them!

Fall Florals: OOTD

I can’t believe how fast fall is going this year!  It makes me a bit sad since it’s my favorite season and I’m not ready for winter to come at all.  This fall I’ve been loving a top that screams fall when you see it.  Since fall is going so quickly, I thought I better share it with you now before it’s too late and you’re onto winter clothes.  Fyi, this top is another item I scored from Loft.  Sorry if you’re getting sick of me talking about Loft, but they’ve just had so many cute clothes and major sales this season!

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!

Styling a Lilly Pulitzer T-Shirt Dress

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.

This cold shoulder sweater has become one of my favorites! I didn’t know how I felt about this trend when it first started but after getting my first cold shoulder sweater I’m in love! I feel they give it a little bit of a dressier feel than a normal sweater. For this looked I paired my sweater with my over the knee boots. I had been looking for over the knee beets for a while and am glad I finally found the perfect pair. I went with a flat bottom so they could go with more. This way I can wear them with a more casual look or with an outfit for going out.

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.
