Dotty Day

Maybe it's coming back from a week long break, maybe its starting a new unit in poetry (one of my favorite things to teach), or maybe its just the warmer temps, but this week has been a great one! 

This morning while driving in I heard a story about a group of scientists who studied and have proven that when you feel like you look good, your day is better! I could have told them that without an official study, but scientists will be scientists. I bet they got some enormous grant to do this study too... 
Oh well, I digress

The point is that this outfit looked good, and as a result I felt great all day long!

I'm wearing:
top- free from a swap
everything else- Target

This top is quite large on me so when I wear it solo I always want to cinch it with a belt. I love the little peplum effect!

Here's hoping your week is going well too!

Counting Down

This morning when I got into work after having a week long vacation something had snapped. Today was the start of the 4th and final quarter of the school year, which means there are only 10 weeks left until vacation. Things are warming up, and we're about to race to the finish line. I can already tell that it's going to just fly by!

After a week of yoga shorts, cut offs, and bathing suits, it was nice to get dressed back up for school again. I liked the pairing of this dress and blouse well enough, but when J first saw me this morning he got so excited about how I looked. Let me tell you, when the man acknowledges the outfit it definitely makes me feel like $1,000,000!

I'm Wearing: 
blouse, necklace- Target
dress- Old Navy
boots- ebay

I'm still going through all of the vacation pics from our desert trip last week. It's so nice to be all sun warmed and refreshed, and I'm excited to share some of the memories here over the week.

Yesterday was packed with so many things that needed to get done. There were meetings, memos, coffee dates, our weekly babysitting gig, and picking up the dog we're dogsitting for the weekend. 

Yet, somehow in all of that driving around town I noticed that there were approximately ten minutes left in "Golden Hour", and I was wearing a cute outfit with a new jacket that I want to show off, so I added the frantic search for a spot suitable for outfit photos before all the light is gone to my to-do list.

I'm Wearing:
tights, dress: Urban Outfitters 
shoes, K necklace- Target
A necklace- not mine
jacket- Old Navy

So, once I saw a little park off the side of the road I flew in, pulled a fast U-turn, faced the hood of the car away from the waning sun, set my camera and tripod up on the hood of the still running car, and snapped a few quick shots before the sun disappeared. Do I love the shots? No, but I'm proud of myself that I actually made them happen. Because, dedication!

Feeling Floral

There's something about this time of year that just pulls the girliness right out of me. Seriously, as soon as the weather started to warm up even the slightest bit I felt an undeniable need to pull out sweet, twee pastels, floral prints, and tons of coquettish polka dots. 

I'm Wearing:
skirt, sweater: thrifted
floral T- Urban Outfitters
belt, tights- Target
oxfords- Gap (similar)

I found this adorable semi-colon ring made from a vintage typewriter key a while back at an antique store. It's so English nerdy, and I LOVE it!

For Christmas, I got my bestie one of these at Target. I then needed one up for myself. It's a grown up version of those best friend necklaces we all wore in middle school!

A Change Can Do You Good

 Ladies and gentlemen (?),
 I would like to formally announce and welcome in this highly anticipated spring! I can't believe what a difference 20 extra degrees and the sunshine makes in life. I have spent the past few days relishing the outdoors, walking all over and falling more and more in love with my little town every day. In fact, I think I'm falling more and more in love with life everyday.

To herald in the changing season I threw on the colors and even braved almost bare legs! It felt amazing!

We raced the sun uphill yesterday, making it to the aptly named "Sunset Park" just as the sun was slipping over the horizon. J and I used to spend a lot of time here when we first got together, and it was sweet to be back again. 

I'm Wearing:
necklace, dress- Target
sweater- hand me down from my bestie
boots- ebay

And a special shout out to my wonderful hubby who knows how to take the most flattering pictures  as well as find the best adventures!
