Fun Florals

And teaching summer school has begun! I keep forgetting my reasoning for signing up to teach summer school. Maybe it was the fear of boredom, habit of busyness, or just the lost of my sanity, but I did. At least I have an excuse to dress up! 🙂 Haha, but honestly, it’s not so bad thus far. I’ve got great kids who are so eager to learn and that’s all a teacher could ask for.

So about this outfit…probably my new favorite summer work outfit. I decided to keep it casual with jeans but dressed it up with this great floral blazer that I found at DenM during my vacation in Redlands. (Scroll down for similar options!)

Playing Hooky

Technically I’m not playing hooky because my school actually has Cinco De Mayo off, but sometimes I like to feel that I am capable of such craziness and whimsy. 😛 And if you’re reading this and thoughts of jealousy arises because you’re in the office right now, know that I am at Starbucks right now grading 150 math tests and lesson planning for the week. I’m in the same boat as you are. 🙂

Anyways, here’s my casual outfit for the day. There’s nothing like throwing on some boyfriend jeans and a white tee for a day off. Comfy, casual, but not sweats.

Casual Browns

Who knew winter could feel like summer? Sorry for rubbing it in for those whose teeth are chattering right now, but today here in the bay, the sun was shining bright and it felt like it was in the 70s! Geez, we’re too spoiled out here.

Just so you know, it’s okay to wear a lot of brown! Just make sure that you are pairing it up with different shades of brown. Don’t just stay with one shade, or else you’ll look like poop. Enough said. I used to hate wearing brown because I thought my skin matched the color too much…it’s all about the shade!

As I have been analyzing my outfits and listing the brands out here for you, I am realizing that I shop pretty much at the same four places: Anthropologie, Gap, J.Crew, or Thrift Stores. I think I need to branch out a bit more. So for this post, instead of just giving you just one similar option, I’m going to give you a couple to choose from. Don’t limit yourself to just a couple of stores (like I have been doing), but go exploring! Who knows what special pieces you will find in the most unlikely places.

Jacket
Wearing: Anthropologie
My Picks: Forever 21 $44.80 // H&M $49.95  // Free People $248 $169

Top
Wearing: Anthropologie
My Picks: Macy’s $30 $14.99 //  Nordstrom $49 // Splendid $88

Jeans
Wearing: Gap
My Picks:  Old Navy $34.94   // Levi’s $78 $54.90 // Madewell $128

Boots
Wearing: Steve Madden
My Picks:  Old Navy $42.94 // Francesca’s $69 $41.40  // Frye $268

Now, go outside and play with leaves. It’s fun!
Happy shopping!

Rule Breaker

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?

I absolutely love Gap Jeans, more specifically their 1969 Always Skinny cut. Again, having short legs and hips make it hard to find jeans that make me feel semi-tall and thin. These jeans do the trick! They’re pretty much the only type of jeans I wear. (Note: Their jeans don’t shrink or stretch so don’t go up a size even if you think they’re a little snug.) As for the shoes, I thought oxfords would be a nice touch to make this more of a fall outfit.

Once a rule breaker, always a rule breaker.
(If you know me personally, just humor me for the sake of my measly attempt at being hip.)

P.S. Sorry for the over editing. I think it’s now time to not be lazy and take out my DSLR instead of using my iPhone.

BTW, Happy Birthday Caitlyn DV.
Gosh, don’t we look young.
