Happy Hump Day! I didn’t realize it, but yesterday was my 100th post! If you missed it, check it out here. I talked about some Fall Trends and some of my fall pieces.
Today I’m giving you my teacher outfits from the last week and one weekend outfit.
This is an olive swing dress, a TJ Maxx kimono, my Kendra Scott Rayne necklace, and my trusty Danskos. Everything is at least a year old. I forgot to take my photo until the end of the day so makeup has worn off!
These are the Matilda Jane pants I got from a consignment store for $29, a shirt I have worn the heck out of from Nordstrom.com last year (I love the color and the sleeves and it’s very soft – this type of top will be a workhorse in your wardrobe), and a TJ Maxx vest along with a stone pendant necklace I believe I bought for very cheap at Versona. I’m wearing my Corky’s Boutique wedges and I changed into flat sandals about halfway through the day. I loved the pants. They were super comfortable and made from a very nice material. I actually like the sleeves with the bottom ruffle, but maybe I look crazy.
I should have worn different pants, but I love my consignment top (a brand I hadn’t heard of – but I liked the boho vibe) and my wooden tassel necklace that was $3 at Walmart several years ago. I also loved the grey snakeskin looking Tieks from consignment. The pants are navy leggings from J.Jill (great place for basic staples) but I don’t think the top was quite long enough for leggings.
This is the new cacti top and this was my Saturday night outfit. I’m wearing my Hue leggings from my love of Hue post here and my Corky’s Boutique wedges again.
I did wash my Cacti top because I spilled Caprese crepe on it – of course! I decided to go ahead and wear it again on Monday to school with my mustard LulaRoe skirt and the trusty Danskos again. I think I’m talking in the photo – oops!
Finally, I wore my Walmart pants ($9.98) from my post here when I did some exploring of Walmart clothing this summer and my Old Navy top with my brown Dansko sandals. I need to say thank you to my great co-workers who take my photos at school and my son who took my photos at home.
Now I’m liking up with the ladies below for What’s Up Wednesday…

A Wednesday Tip:
Because Wednesday if halfway through the week, I try to do a load of laundry so it doesn’t get too piled up by the weekend. I also treat myself to a little shopping trip or a coffee after school. I like to do something a little bit different and out of the routine on Wednesday. This goes a long way toward making me happy so I don’t feel like I’m strictly living for the weekend.
Thanks for reading!
