eShakti Review and GIVEAWAY!

Happy first day of the week! Yes, I think I’m a little too cheerful for a Monday, but it’s the last week of summer school! I’m looking forward to my week off doing nothing but planning for this next school year. I know, not much of a summer break. But honestly, I’m excited for my second year teaching at the high school level.

This year is going to be full of fun and excitement! I am…
1. Finishing up BTSA this year
2. The freshmen class advisor
3. Club advisor for 2 clubs

**If you are a fellow teacher, any advice for the newbie? ūüôā

OK, enough about me and let’s take a look at this outfit.

I am currently obsessed with the brand eShakti¬†right now. I mean, what store let’s you customize your purchase to your liking? Depending on the design, you can decide on a variety of sleeve type, the length, and the neckline.

How awesome is that? With this particular top I decided to go for the cap sleeve¬†(work appropriate but still flattering to the arms) and kept the length right at my hips (balances my proportions). I’m sad to say that this top is not available anymore on their site, but they have a multitude of other great designs that I am positive you are going to love! Check out their New Arrivals¬†and keep scrolling for a Giveaway!

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.

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.

MIX MATCH

Casual in Grey and Gold

Today is just one of those days where the “laid back”¬†feelings of summer are creeping up on me, hence it’s going to be a casual Tuesday with a simple look.¬†We all need simple looks, right?

To spice up this simple look, I decided to accessorize with some gorgeous jewelry from Wrenn Jewelry.

Because of the simplicity and daintiness of her jewelry, they are perfect for everyday wear!

Oh yea, and you may have noticed that you don’t see any pictures of my footwear. After looking back at pictures, I realized that my choice of shoes wasn’t really working so I decided to spare your eyes. All about trial and error right?

Tell me, what shoes would you wear with this outfit?
