Hidden Lake

After 24 years living in my hometown, I had no idea there was a lake down the street from my house! Isn’t that ridiculous? I am pretty ashamed of myself. But better late than never right?

This new discovery was made just in time because this week’s Thrifty Thursday theme is Nautical. Today I felt like ditching the typical blue/white deal and decided to mix in a little orange and of course my Sperry Top-Siders which happens to be pink.

Tangerine and pink? I think it’s a workable combo.

Trend: The Tulle Skirt

 Okay ladies (and gents if you’re reading 🙂 ), if you want to feel like royalty, no need for a wear-just-once-designer ball gown. Just grab yourself a tulle skirt and you can embrace your inner majesty every single day!

I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect tulle skirt that has the right amount of poof, quality fabric, perfect shade of pink, and is the right length. Like the prince in search for Cinderella, I was in no such luck until my fairy shop mother (a.k.a the internet) brought me to The Girl The Loves. Let’s just say that I have found my Cinderella.

Being the indecisive person I am, I couldn’t decide whether to go with the typical girly look or the tough rocker look. There are so many different ways to style a tulle skirt! Here’s another look where I just switched out my jacket, necklace, and shoes to show my inner rock princess.

All About Chevron

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone’s weekend was relaxing and fun! Mine was pretty low key as I kick started my spring break. Surprising and sadly, I don’t have any trips or adventures planned for this week besides doing some spring cleaning and lesson planning. No worries, vacationing at home is always the best. 🙂

I’m not usually the one to wear an all over pattern, but I’m totally diggin’ this dress. Pin up Darling did it again with the Chevron Bow Back Dress. The shift-style shape paired with the long sleeves and soft fabric makes this dress my go to dress because it really does not need much and the bold pattern says it all. 🙂

And did you notice the back of the dress?

Cloudy with a chance of KompanyKay

            I’m sad to say that I broke my “no shopping” New Years’ Resolution yesterday. But please, hold the disappointment and hear me out. 🙂

This week is spirit week and yesterday was Tie Dye Day and to my dismay, I realized that I did not own a single tie dye item and had absolutely no time to make my own. But I was not going to let this ruin my spirited streak, hence I had to succumb to the pressure and head over to the all-purpose Target.

I don’t mind the sacrifice. All for the sake of the children, right? 🙂

Thrift style Thursday: Pastels

Ok, so this dress isn’t thrifted, but when Pin Up Darling so graciously sent this over to me, I knew I had to use it for the pastel theme.

I normally never leave long sleeves down as is. I usually roll them up because I hate the feeling of loose fabric around my wrists (I know I’m a weirdo). But guess what, I didn’t have to roll up the sleeves for this dress! Shocker huh?

The cinched sleeves solves that problem and to top it off Pin Up Darling added retro gold buttons for an accent. I give them a thumbs up, don’t you agree?

Deb Shops so generously sent me this casual boho style top, and I just absolutely couldn’t bear to wait until the weekend to wear it casually. How do you style a casual top for work? Well, just add a slim skirt, blazer and heels or flats and there you go.

You may be wondering why I switched from flats to heels…well you try walking in heels while teaching all day. Yea, not going to happen (anymore anyway 🙂 )

Full Throttle

Thrift Style Thursday : Movie Inspired

When I sit down to watch Charlie’s Angels (the movie and/or series), two thoughts come into my head:
1. I wish I could kick butt like that.
2. I wish I had a dress like that.

Number 1 is still in the works, but I can officially say that I accomplished the latter. 🙂
