What's In My Bag?: Work Edition

Image
Hello loves! As promised, I'm going to give you a sneak peek into my daily life. Now as a preschool teacher, you've got to be ready for whatever may come your way. I personally like to use my Longchamp Le Pliage tote in the large size because it's weatherproof and easy to clean in case of messy paint spills.

What's Keeping Me Busy: As I mentioned in my Travel Edition, I always have to have a book with me when I am out and about. It is particularly entertaining for my commutes between schools. My current read is All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I carry my iPad around for my shorter commutes so that I can do work in between sessions. It's a way to make the most of my constant downtime on the train!

Staying Organized: Even though I do have a lot of upcoming events and appointments on my iPhone calendar, I have the Bloom Calendar Year Daily Planner. I like having the tabs to separate the months and the the large spaces for each day. Additionally, inside my …

Hello loves! I hope you are staying warm, dry, and happy after the blizzard that just fell on the east coast! Today's post is all about snow boots that keep your toesies nice and toasty but are also lightweight and cute for everyday wear.

Whether I end up disappearing in a dirty slushy puddle in the city or am shoveling snow around my house, my feet stay dry and warm with just a basic pair of socks. For sizing reference, I am typically a 5.5 US in women's shoes but I purchased these boots in a women's size 5 and they are a perfect fit. Check out the full look below!
Even though the Belcloud boots I have are no longer available, I've provided a similar pair as well as alternatives in several price ranges below.

Welcome to this week's edition of Tuesday Shoesday! If you know me, you'll know that I am constantly on the hunt for shoes of all styles. I admit that I've had these fringe booties for quite some time but have never actually worn them until now. What a better way to wear these beauties on a brisk January day than with a nice thick woolen wrap! Check out the full outfit details below (plus a bunch of different priced alternatives).

Hello loves! I know I have been awful at keeping up with blogging, but in this new year, I promise to try to keep up with it more because I just want to help you all find the best deals! For my first post of 2016, I decided to do what I do best and keep it simple. I put together two of the current biggest trends - turtlenecks and over-the-knee boots - and even provided some options for those still on the hunt for boots just like these at different price ranges. Check out the full look below!

Be sure to stop by next Tuesday for my next edition of Tuesday Shoesday! Hint: It's all about the fringe!
