Summer Kimono & Statement Kendra Scott Pieces

June 20, 2022

One of the very best parts of this teacher’s summer vacation is extra girl time, especially when it includes coffee and shopping! And on this day I was so happy to have an excuse to wear my fabulous new statement jewelry from Kendra Scott, along with my new summer kimono, a TJ Maxx find.

You might have noticed that I’m all about the blue and teal shades this summer.  I’m in love with these gorgeous turquoise earrings and necklace that Kendra Scott let me pick out.  Maybe I’m subconsciously coordinating all my outfits to wear with them?! 😁 I definitely had them in mind when I picked out this pretty print summer kimono, paired here with my Super Soft Chico’s jeans and Gap basic tee, and this fabulous Chico’s tote (that I’m so sad to tell you is sold out).  I wore my summer wedges and then switched to my Easy Spirit Mar Sandals when the shopping and walking got serious.  😂

teacher life, teacher style, student style

At the end of my fun visit with my buddy, Lynn, we happened to run into past students! It’s always so fun to see old pupils and hear what they’ve been up to.  Couldn’t help but get a pic with these two stars, Maggie and Stephanie.  Love Maggie’s chic dress and Stephanie’s casual cool girl look. And let’s not forget that my girl Lynn looks downright adorable in her denim jeans and leopard top! Fun, fashion, girls, shopping … life is gooood.

What colors are you attracted to this summer? Am I the only one going through a blue phase?!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
