White Outfits for the Bride-To-Be

Every bride-to-be needs a closet full of white to prepare for all the pre-wedding celebrations that take place before the wedding itself. From bridal showers to bachelorette parties to rehearsal dinners, there’s a host of events requiring proper bridal attire. When my bridesmaids shared my bachelorette location, I got thinking on what I might wear and scouring my closet for what I already had. Surprisingly, for someone who teaches children, I own a fair amount…

Styling the Perfect Bridal Bouquet

My mom got remarried on New Year’s Eve in a very relaxed, joyful ceremony. We had 15 members of our family together to celebrate and as I was driving to the hotel with my mom in the afternoon, she asked if I would put together her bridal bouquet. It’s surprisingly easy to build a beautiful bridal bouquet with nothing but grocery store flowers! If you’re a bride on a budget or simply looking to make…

Comfortable Holiday Outfits

Let’s be real: all our fancy holiday clothes are going to be collecting dust this year. It’s just the nature of the beast! When the holidays are at home, comfortable clothes are required. However, that doesn’t mean you get to wear your quarantine sweatpants to the dinner table. Here are a few comfortable Thanksgiving Day outfits that are warm, classic, and lounge worthy. A Barn Coat, Cable Knit Pullover, and Dark Denim Does your family…

New England Style: Barn Coats, Cable Knits, and Bean Boots

When I’m not wearing outdoor work clothes (which is a lot) this is my New England fall uniform. I wish this was an L.L. Bean add considering their products make up half my closet, but alas.. I bought this barn coat for the colder weather of a New Hampshire fall. It has been perfect for recess duty (can you say pockets!) and it is the perfect, medium weight transitional coat. It’s a heavy duty material…

Favorite Facial Oils

A few years ago, I was using rose-hip oil pretty frequently on my skin. I loved how moisturizing it was and how it faded any acne scarring I had. However, I never quite “bought in” to facial oils until now. I am sold on the Ordinary’s line of facial oils and for their price point, they are totally worth it. Full disclosure, I have only been using these on and off for about a month,…

Best Activewear for Fall

Now that the weather is getting cooler, we can opt for outdoor activities and know we’ll head home energized and cozy instead of exhausted and sweaty. Fall hiking, biking, and adventuring are my favorite things. The summer heat takes so much out of me that once fall hits, I feel like I can just go-go-go. However, that means I need to be properly dressed. Today I’m sharing the best activewear for fall that I have…

Best Non-Medical Masks for Teachers

Schools are releasing their reopening plans and while no one has really confirmed whether we’re going back, staying home, splitting the day, splitting the week, or simply giving up on education all together (ha, just kidding) there does seem to be one overwhelming consensus. If in school, teachers will be wearing masks. If you’re a teacher like me, then you have a closet full of professional clothes that haven’t been worn in the past five…

I’ve curated a few items below to accompany any scenario you may run into- heavy on the red, white, and blue. A Backyard BBQ – A Fun Graphic Sweater Keep things light and festive in…

May Favorites

May has been a wacky month, to say the least, but overall I’m loving the weather and looking forward to things getting a little bit closer to normal. There have, however, been a few things I’ve been relying to bring me joy during this odd season of life. I’m sharing them below, in case you need something new in your life!

My Favorite Workout Clothes and Gear

Until last year I was never really that person who worked out. I played on the occasional team (recreationally) and spent a bit of time in the gym, but I never really loved any of the activities I was doing (except for ultimate frisbee- I loved playing ultimate frisbee.) Nowadays, in my free time you’ll find me at the yoga studio, hiking up a mountain, running downtown, rock climbing, catching the occasional frisbee pickup session-…

Teacher Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been infatuated with the idea of a capsule wardrobe for awhile now. I love how simple it makes everything- varying between a set number of objects to create a handful of outfits that are far from boring and repetitive. This teacher capsule wardrobe is warm enough to wear over these next few dreary months, professional enough that I am comfortable in the classroom, and stylish in a classic way. In total, my teacher capsule…

My Favorite Skin Saving Secret

For the last month, I’ve been sitting on a new skin saving secret that I finally feel ready to share with confidence. I feel like skincare is tough because it’s so different for everyone. Everyone struggles with their own skin problems- too oily, too dry, breakouts, wrinkles, etc. I’ve tried product after product looking for something that consistently works for me. Now that I’ve found it, I’m hoping it might work for you. I can…

5 Necessities for a Night Out

We’re coming up on the time of year where it feels like there’s an event every weekend. It isn’t even truly the holiday season yet and I’m finding that my calendar is booked solid. That being said, getting ready for a night out can be a hassle, especially if you’re like me. Most nights, I’m a real homebody. I have a tried and true routine so that I’m presentable for work, but otherwise, I prefer to…

Striped Summer Dress

Downtown Newport // Talbots Dress, Converse Sneakers   Raise your hand if the only thing you want to wear in the summer is a dress. I truly can’t imagine that this applies to just me. As soon as the temperature passes 70 and the humidity goes from manageable to oh god, help us all I’m ready to ditch every pair of pants I own. Light, one and done pieces in cottons and linens are my go-to.…

The Perfect Poncho

Grapevine Texas // L.L. Bean Poncho, L.L. Bean Shirt, Madewell Jeans, Old Navy Flats I never thought I would be saying this, but the item you have to add to your wardrobe this winter is a poncho. The sharp, classic shape paired with the beautiful wool fabric makes it perfect to throw over a professional outfit. I got mine in this great taupe color, but they now have a dark plum one online that reminds…

Bundling Up

Ithaca, New York // Calvin Klein Jacket (similar), Plaid Scarf, LL Bean Sweater, Madewell Jeans, LL Bean Bean Boots This winter has been a brutal one and we’re barely a month in. I can’t believe the snow and temperatures we’ve seen so far. That being said, bundling up when venturing into the outdoors is a MUST. However, I’m not a girl who loves having tons of bulky layers. Instead, I prefer finding a few comfortable,…

Fall Flannels

Hollis Farms // L.L. Bean Flannel, Champion Leggings, Hunter Boots Last weekend my father and I took a trip up to visit my sister at school. It’s become a yearly tradition during the start of fall to spend the afternoon apple picking and eating pie. It’s great to be outdoors, wandering around an orchard in the sun. Hollis Farm is a wonderful spot up in the hills with rows and rows of apple trees. An…

Fall Florals

Glen Manor House // Talbots Top, Banana Republic Pants, White House Black Market Heels (similar) I’m a big fan of crisp, cool fall days. However, New England hasn’t had very many lately. It’s been crazy warm, the kind of weather I wish we had this summer. However, it is nice to leave the layers behind. The floral pants I’m featuring today are perfect for this transitional point in the season- satin material and surprisingly light.…

The Last Striped Shorts of Summer

Narragansett Bay // Talbots Top (similar here), Banana Republic Shorts, Dream Pair Flats I always forget that until September 21st it’s technically ‘summer.’ Even though school has started, the weather is still sunny and shorts are still a wardrobe possibility. I try to utilize all the summer pieces in my closet for as long as possible. I got this outfit on sale for the most part, so while the exact pieces may not be available,…
