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.

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? 😛

I’m not usually the one to match my shirt and shoe color, but today I decided to push that rule out and go a little crazy. I mean it is spring break after all. And yes, this is probably the most crazy action I am going to do this week. Hm, no wonder my students think I live under a rock.

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?

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.

DSC_9803 DSC_9807

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?

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. 🙂

I titled this post “Keep Holding On” because that’s what it feels like these days. But don’t worry, it’s NOT in a bad way thank goodness. There’s just an enormous amount of awesomeness that I want to be a part of. Haha. If you didn’t already know, I have the tendency to overindulge in hobbies/jobs.

1. Teaching high school math
I have to make a living somehow right? 🙂 Teaching has been my passion since I was a young wee little one. My students keep asking me “Why did you want to be a teacher? You have to stay in school all day!” Well kiddos, I actually enjoy school and have been enjoying it all my life. Some may say that’s nerdy, some may say that’s weird, but I say what’s life without continuous learning and knowledge? But really, the actual reason why I love teaching is because it’s my way of serving and giving back to the community and making a positive impact in these kids lives (at least I hope so!). And I can’t lie…having summers off is a plus. 🙂

2. Blogging
A girl’s gotta have a separate life from her job right? I’ve been working really hard to collaborate with different retailers to bring you all some special goodies. Be on the look out for an awesome giveaway soon as well as some awesome discount codes to freshen up your wardrobe in time for spring! 🙂

3. Wedding / Bridal Shower Invitations
If you didn’t know already, I am trying to get into the handmade stationary/invitation designing business. I am currently working on a wedding right now and am really excited about the design. Hopefully I will get pictures up soon!

4. Vacation Bible School Director
Just recently, I decided to volunteer for the position of VBS Director at my parents’ church. If you’re not familiar with VBS, it’s basically a one-week “camp” or 3-hr session during the summer where kids come to learn more about Christ through music, various fun activities, and bible stories. It’s a big job that I’m excited, anxious, and overwhelmed by. It’s my first time! Wish me luck! 🙂
