The return of Fashion Friday

I let Fashion Friday slip and slide all the way down the summer black hole. But now that I’m back to work full-time, it has resurfaced. The soaring temps + lack of functioning windows (or a/c for that matter) left me searching through my closet for clothes that would keep me cool, yet would still be teacher-appropriate. Tuesday

Dress: Max Studio, Wedges: Clarks (similar)


Dress: Ann Taylor Loft, Cardi: Nordstrom Rack, Shoes: Dansko (I finally broke down and bought some comfort shoes. Not the cutest, but oh, so comfortable!)


Denim bermudas: Ann Taylor Loft, Ruffle shirt: Banana Republic, Wedges: Clarks. Sidenote: look how sad Rilo is that I’m not spending all day with her 😦

I have to say, Clarks and Danskos are perfect teaching shoes. I had my doubts, but I’m glad I purchased both pairs. This week has included some rather long days, and even longer nights. Comfortable shoes are a must! (I explained this to my kiddos during my I-PICK lesson, they agreed 🙂 )

I’m easing back into my old routines of picking out my outfit and hanging it the night before, packing my breakfast and lunch, and making multiple days meals at once. I wasn’t able to fully organize my first week back, but I’m hoping to be completely back in my normal routine next week. This weekend I plan to make a few freezer meals/drinks I’ve been storing in my pinterest account:

Pumpkin Spice Latte on a budget
