Orange You Glad That Summer’s Here?

It’s officially the last day of school folks! Put away the teacher hat, and bring on the fun in the summer bliss! [except for the fact that I’m teaching summer school, ha!]

What’s more summer than a bright colored maxi dress?

Maximize the Maxi


I love adding pieces to my wardrobe that is easy to mix up and dress up for different occasions. It’s all about maximizing what you’ve got already, especially when you’re just starting out in the professional world.

Roe Boulevard was kind enough to let me try out their Remember Me Maxi Dress {50% off your purchase using the code LUCKY50} which I instantly knew had so many different possibilities. With just a change of the outerwear, you can go from a beach day, to a city stroll, or to a work day as easy as one, two, and THREE.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend and remember that it is not about the pastel colors, eggs, bunnies, and candy, but about remembering the Lord’s sacrifice as he laid his life down for all so that we may be redeemed.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8

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? 😛

Thrift Style Thursday: Laid Back

This outfit is probably not the typical laid back look, but let me tell you something…it definitely FEELS laid back. There are no restrictions on the movement of my limbs whatsoever. Yes, I can probably do a cartwheel in this outfit (if I knew how to cartwheel), and yes I can stretch out my arms as wide as possible to show you how much I appreciate you reading my blog. 🙂

That right there, my friends, is one comfortable outfit.
