Hi all! Happy Sunday! In Arizona, spring has arrived in full force – meaning we are already hitting 90 degrees. This heat is REAL. My husband and I enjoyed a festival in Scottsdale late Saturday afternoon and I just had to share my outfit! I think it ended up being so comfy yet stylish. Whenever E and I plan to attend a local event, I’m one of those … Read More

You may have noticed (especially if you follow along on Instagram) that I have had so much fun layering with dresses! I guess in Arizona, our temperatures allow us to do that pretty easily during our “cool” months. I wanted to share a recent gem I found – a navy swing dress! Old Navy sold the most beautiful burgundy dress in the fall season (see that post here), and unfortunately … Read More

Designer Looks for Less

Teacher FashionistaBudget Series2 Comments

Please tell me I’m not the only girl wishing for endless shopping money! I adore designer looks, but do not have the budget to accommodate those ‘tastes’ most of the time, if at all. So… today’s budget series is a little different: Splurge versus Save. One of my favorite things to do online is hunt for look-alikes! This is perfect for my usual Wednesday budget series, thus, today I … Read More

Today I am sharing again from a small business – The Market Boutique! I am featuring their short-sleeved Harper Striped Dress in Taupe and Red. With the cooler winter/spring temperatures that are often still surrounding us, I decided to layer the dress with a light-wash denim jacket. I wore my favorite OTK boots, too, and it brought out the taupe color in the dress. This dress is … Read More

Today I am featuring the softest leggings I have ever worn – I kid you not! This cute spring pair from Ooh La Leggings are  made from a polyester and spandex blend.

Some weeks I can hardly WAIT for another weekend! Eric and I usually do an activity whether it’s hiking, brunching (yes I’m calling that an activity, lol!), driving around, enjoying a local event, or hanging out with friends. Right now the weather in Arizona is amazing and is calling for light long sleeves. However, by mid afternoon, I’m ready for short sleeves! A wonderful solution to … Read More

Tunics are such a fabulous piece to have in your wardrobe for fall and winter! They are long and flowy, and can take you from work to a night out, and into the weekend with style. I found my tunic at Nordstrom Rack for a little over $30, and also saw this similar one for those of you who may not want a collar. (I also usually … Read More
