Fall Cardigan Roundup

Fall is almost here. It certainly doesn’t feel like it, but before we know it it will be time to bundle up. The only “back to school” shopping I did was at Walmart and Amazon for a few cozy things. Simple and affordable. I am ready for cooler temps for many reasons, but mostly to finally get to wear these cardigans!

DIY Dramatic Play


Hey y’all! It’s been a LONG time, but I’m back! Life has definitely changed since last time I blogged. Mike and I now have a precious 13 month old girl. I was nervous to see how having a baby would change my career. Part of me feared that being a new mom would negatively affect my teaching, but i’m happy to say that having Claire has made me a MUCH better teacher. Definitely far from perfect, but better.


Just as I strive to be present and intentional when I am with my daughter, I now really focus on being the same with my students. I always really cared about my kiddos, but having one of my own makes me think of all their parents and how they want their child to be treated. One day Claire will have teachers, and I certainly want the best for her. I strive to be the best I can be for my students as well. Of course I still have MANY teacher (and mom) fails along the way! I am horrible with puppets (thankfully my students think it’s pretty comedic), forget deadlines, have horrible grammar (good thing I teach pre-k), lose my train of thought in the middle of teaching and the list goes on!

Target Maternity Finds + A Blogging Shift

*All links will be at the bottom of the page.

Hey y’all! I’m back from my long blogging hiatus! Before I begin with my fun maternity finds, I wanted to fill you all in on some changes I’m making to my blog. In the past, I used this blog as a way to primarily share my fashion sense and to grow in the fashion world. During my break, I learned that I still love sharing my outfits and finds, however I am not a fan of the general blogging  community rules, expectations and attitude. I mean no disrespect, and if I wanted to pursue this as more than just a hobby, then i’d be on board. Continue reading “Target Maternity Finds + A Blogging Shift”

Baby in Tulle


Mike and I are so excited to announce that we are expecting a baby in early August! Being a mother has been a dream of mine for a while, and now we are making that happen. We found out that I am pregnant the day after Thanksgiving. I was so overjoyed, yet extremely nervous as I found out so early. Any other mother’s or mothers to be know how hard it is to get through that first trimester (still one more week! Ugh). Some things I learned during the very early stages of my pregnancy (as I was only 3 weeks along when we found out) are:

Hey y’all! I know it has been a long time since I’ve blogged. Life has been crazy! Amazing but crazy busy. If you’ve been wondering, I have been taking time away from blogging. Not because I don’t enjoy it, but because I felt like I was becoming consumed. Now I am officially back and in a refreshed state of mind. My main goal is to not be so attached to the insta. However that being said, I do miss keeping up with all y’all! Continue reading “Outerwear That Makes a Statement”

I have shared this maxi skirt before, but I HAD to be share it again! It is such a gorgeous skirt to get you through the holiday season, especially if you live in the south were the temps tend to be high. I’m definitely planning on wearing this beauty to one of many Thanksgiving feasts! I purchased this maxi on Amazon for $21.99. It has been such a faithful wardrobe piece helping me transition into every season. Seriously though, this skirt has been worn by me every single season. I am a strong believer that the best closet items are those that never go out of season.  Continue reading “A Twirl-Worthy Maxi Skirt”

You will usually see me out and about in bubble gum pink or teal, but I have found some fun pieces in darker colors! I’m so proud of myself for incorporating a few darker hues into my closet.  Continue reading “Fall Hues: Deep Red”
