Let’s Go Back to White and Black

 Summer is all about the colors and the prints, but my eyes were starting to hurt a little bit from the overload and therefore today’s outfit is all about keeping it simple with black and white. Can’t go wrong, right?

Trend: Kimono

DSC_0473

I’ve always been reserved about trying out the kimono trend, but when I saw this (On sale for only $10.95 now!!!) on Deb Shops, I knew I had to try it out, especially since festival season is here!  I usually see kimonos paired with shorts, but seeing that I needed to go to work, shorts were not really an option so I decided to pair it with a maxi dress and tied it in the front for a different look.

My students approved. Do you? 😛

Tough Stuff

I may look like a girly girl on the outside, but deep down I’m a tough cookie with an attitude…at least that’s what my mom says. 😛

I bet you can’t guess what that bracelet is made up of … the INNER TUBE OF A BICYCLE WHEEL.

Yes, you heard me, it’s made from a bicycle wheel. Urban Lace Jewelry thought of a way to turn trash into something absolutely gorgeous. With a variety of designs and sizes to fit your personal style, you can promote eco-friendly stylish jewelry.

For those who don’t believe my claim…

Ways I am more of a “Tough Cookie”
1. I have perfected the evil eye that gives my students the shiver from head to toe.
2. I’ve killed countless of cockroaches.
3. I can hold my bladder for up to 9 hours straight (I know, probably not a healthy thing)
4. I can craft for 8 hours straight while withstanding the pain of paper cuts and hot glue burns.

Have I changed your opinion? 🙂

What makes you tough?

Too Cool for School

     As Spring Fever begins, I’m starting to get that itch for summer to be here already hence the title of this post. There’s nothing like wearing all black, throwing on a denim jacket and aviators, to say to the world that you’re a tired teacher who needs a break. At least spring break is 1 1/2 weeks away. Until then, simple outfits like these and sunglasses to cover my allergy-ridden eyes will just have to do.

I just want to take a moment to highlight these gorgeous earrings from Benevolent Jewels. I’ve been wanting some statement earrings for awhile but haven’t found a pair that I liked style-wise as well as price-wise. Benevolent Jewels came out with these Shimmer Rosette Drop Earrings that I absolutely adore. At first I was afraid that they would be too heavy for my small little ears, but after my 10-hr work day, I realized that it was no problem at all. 🙂

If you haven’t heard of Benevolent Jewels yet, let me be the first to tell you that they are one great company. The main reason why I adore this brand is because of their philanthropic mission. At the end of every 3 months, they take 20% of their earnings and donates it to a cause. How awesome is that? With your purchase, you not only get stylish products, but you also get to help others.

We need more businesses like this, don’t you think?
