Teacher Starbucks Date & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up

May 21, 2015
To be honest, I had no photos ready to go for my Fun Fashion Friday post today. It’s been a crazy week, taking care of a sick kitty and giving finals at school.  So I asked my bestie and fellow teacher, Lynn (IG @lynnnie34) to meet me at Starbucks before school and be sure to look cute for some pics!

So this is us this morning ….

My outfit details:
Kimono – H&M (Shop Kimonos at Shopbop)
Jeans and Tee – Old Navy (Shop Old Navy)
Cage Shoes – Madden Girl (Shop Cage Shoes at Shopbop)
Fringe Purse – Carlos Santana 
Tassel Necklace – Lucky (Shop Tassel Necklaces at Shopbop)
Watch –  Jord (Shop Jord)

Lynn’s Outfit Details:
Gingham shirt and cardi – J. Crew
Flare jeans – Express (Shop Jeans at Express)

Isn’t she the cutest?

Of course after the coffee kicked in things got silly … (actually with us together it’s ALWAYS pretty silly!)
Look how excited we are for Fun Fashion Friday!  
(Of course knowing that we only have one more week of school could have something to do it too!)

Here’s my picks from last week ….

Don’t they all look amazing?!

Floral Bags & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

March 26, 2015

I found this adorable vintage floral handbag at an antique market in Monterey.  I fell in love with it right away. I love when something vintage echoes something so on trend … in this case, florals!

New Link Up Party & Warm Cozy Neutrals

January 19, 2015
Well, I’ve decided to try my hand at this link up party business. I have so much fun at everyone else’s party, that I figured it was time to throw my own! It will start this Friday and be called FUN FASHION FRIDAY!  Because fashion should always be fun, but it should be most especially super duper fun on FRIDAYS! The party starts Thursday evening through Saturday evening. Fellow fashion bloggers, come by and link up!  Readers, stop by and get introduced to new blogs!  Come join in the fun!

Now an outfit … here’s what I wore for a weekend breakfast out with the hubby.  

Santa brought me these fab Michael Kors suede wedge booties.  So cute and comfy, and cozy and warm with the shearling lining (MK Rory Bootie) He also brought me this cool Lucky Brand jacket.  Yeah, Santa is good to me!

The jacket is similar to my little moto jacket which is probably why the hubby thought it looked so much like me.  But the color is bit darker, the length longer, and it’s made of a cool yarn-dyed textured fabric (with faux leather details) … plus he picked it out for me … enough reasons to keep it and enjoy it!  (Found it online in red and on sale here!)

The soft pretty scarf was a gift from my dear friend, Glenda (a little birdie told me she got it at Macy’s).  The chunky sweater was a Zara after Xmas sale purchase.  Also wearing – Old Navy jeans, glasses, and an Oryany handbag.


Earrings – Tilly’s (loving these lightweight earrings that I’m seeing everywhere!)

Cuff bracelet – J. Crew (great for small wrists)
Chain bracelet – so old that I have no idea where it came from!

Have a great week, Dolls & see ya on Friday!
