Versatile Clothes | Spring Wardrobe | Teacherfashionista | Jules

I’m starting a new round up of clothes that easily work overtime in my closet. I can wear these tops to work with colored skinny pants or dress pants like these with pointy toe pumps. And I can dress them down for “play” on the weekend meeting a friend for coffee or brunch, running errands, or having a backyard BBQ or family get together. I always worry about paying a pretty penny for clothes I won’t get much use out of, or will only be able to wear on the weekends.  Obviously, with jeans and shorts – there’s not really a choice. But, finding a cute top that easily goes from work week to weekend fun (or vice versa) always helps me feel … Read More

Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on a budget?! I know that literally hundreds of bloggers will be covering this popular sale, but I am hoping to cover things that I look for, purchase as a teacher on a budget, as well as my favorite picks under $50. Last year I blogged about the big SALE in this post, and had a blast sharing my shopping experience.

Red, white & blue tops | 4th of July Outfit | Teacherfashionista | Jules

Another festive holiday is almost upon us and it’s time to style our red, white & blue tops. I hardly ever wear red, but when 4th of July week comes, I pull out my red tops and tees, and start matching them with my favorite shorts, skirts, and jeans! This year Target has really stepped it up, and I have found so many perfect light-weight summer tops. This red ruffle top was no exception! I paired it with a denim skirt, thinking that is a great look for a family BBQ or pool party.
