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)
Booties -Vince Camuto 
Tote – Coach (Shop Tote Bags at Shopbop)

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?!
Time to link up, link back, visit, & have fun!  And don’t forget to enter my new AMI Clubwear Gift Card Giveway!

    You all are so cute! I love how you turned this into something fun AND got coffee out of the deal. As a former teacher, I hope you are surviving the last days. Sorry to hear about your sick kitty. 🙁

    This has not been my day (accidentally posted my comment to an earlier post rather than this one). Hugs and well wishes to your kitty. I know this must be heart wrenching to see her ill. Lovely pics of you and your friend. And, glad to see blogger Alice featured. 🙂 Thanks for hosting this link up. xx T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

      It's been very stressful with my kitty … in and out of the vet … but it looks like he's on the mend. Btw, I make that mistake quite frequently!


  • Reply Darlene Fadem May 21, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    You both look so cute and full of energy! You should have taken another picture at the END of the day too. 😉

    • Reply dawnlucy May 23, 2015 at 11:24 am

    I think it's great to see a totally spontaneous post, a bit of real life, for change. We don't always have time or energy to put together a perfect outfit and think about every detail, and it's nice to see that side of your life, too. And you do look pretty well put-together, busy or not.

    • Reply dawnlucy May 23, 2015 at 11:18 am

      Thanks so much, Tiina! I'm so happy that this post has gotten such a warm response! OXOX

    Ok, I know for sure I never had this much fun when I taught school, maybe that's why I'm longer teaching (lol). The best part, not to mention how fashionable the two of you are, is that the joy most likely leads into the classroom. Lucky, lucky students!
    Absolutely love your picks for the week, yes, they do look amazing. Have a wonderful weekend, cute lady.

Because these two outfits work SO well together…l love the way the pattern of Lynn's gingham shirt and your floaty kimono compliment each other!! P.S.
