Pink & Tan

I really like how this infinity scarf pushes me to try new color combinations. In general, I have a new found appreciation for a good infinity scarf; it stays put throughout the day!

Well, as of mid-March 2015, I am no longer a middle school teacher. It's bittersweet, but on the bright side, I have some savings (and massive support from family and friends) so I don't have to hit the ground running just yet. Now that I'm home to pick up and drop off my daughter to school, lately my wardrobe has been comfy and more on the creative casual side. Here's what I wore on Tuesday:
fluffy white rose sweater Target (on clearance--last one--it was meant to be mine!) black jeans thrifted (Old Navy--brand new with tags) black moccasin boots Naturalizer via Here's what I wore today (Thursday):
gray fleece dress thrifted (Gap) gray, black, and tan cardigan thrifted gray leggings target? brown boots Born wooden earrings made by former coworker

While thrifting the other day, I saw this shirtdress in the dress aisle. While it's a few sizes too big, the colors and pattern had me at 'hello' :).

On the night before 'snowmaggedon'...

So, New England is supposed to get hit with anywhere from 12 to 36 inches of snow between tonight and tomorrow. I am *not* looking forward to shoveling! Outfit #1--I fell in love with a red plaid and houndstooth inspiration photo so thought-why not?

Faux Furs and Studded Situations

So since it's been freezing in Massachusetts lately, I've been dressing as warmly as possible without looking like a marshmellow, haha! I do miss my skirts and dresses but it is not worth it. Fingers crossed that we'll get through the rest of January and February with temperatures above freezing.

Double post tomorrow

Although I took an outfit pic today, I'll post it tomorrow... I'm fighting a headache and should probably go to bed soon.
