Add a little glitter to your Thanksgiving!!

For Thanksgiving my husband and I made some pretty awesome centerpieces, if I do say so myself.


My idea was to use the black and white stripes adding gold touches, succulents, and earthy materials.  So we went to Diamond Street Recycling and found some logs to use.  You should have seen me, and my mom, out in the mud and branches pulling things out of the pile.  Some of the truckers were looking at us pretty funny!  Anyways the centerpieces turned out so well we are planning on selling them in my friends store soon.


One day we will get a photo where everyone is smiling.

The girls had fun outside between the rain for a bit, Paisley thought the ground was too wet for her little feet.




My NEW FAV!!!! Black Stripe Dress

Untitled-2Untitled-1So I have found my new favorite dress!!!  Its from Downeast Basics.  The style and fit are awesome, and the quality is really good.  I love that the neckline is good for a teacher, and larger chest, the length is just at the knee, sleeves are cute and not too tight for being longer.  Also the dress has POCKETS!!!!!  I paired it with a gold bow belt and actually got up early enough to curl my hair!

Lace Detail Shirt with Purple Maxi

purple skirt

Found this little lace bottom shirt at Fred Meyers and paired it with a purple maxi skirt I got from Amazon and added a little gold/bronze belt.  For my hair I tried something different by having it curly then tying the front pieces into a bow in the back securing it with bobby pins.

Tribal hooded sweater and jeans


I saw this hooded tribal sweater on Groopdealz one morning and decided that it looked like something that should be in my closet.  It is so comfortable and easy to dress up or down, I am glad I bought it.  I paired it with a simple white t-shirt and skinny jeans, but added a thin coral infinity scarf to it just to tie in the color and add something.  Perfect outfit for teaching on a busy day!

Blue Tribal Maxi and new hair-do

blue dress

I found this dress on clearance at Dillard’s a little bit ago and loved the style and colors of it.  Without the cardigan the neckline is super cute, but hard to wear to teach in.  I tried a new hair-do also.  It is so easy and perfect to add some detail to a boring ponytail.  I will have to see about doing a tutorial on it soon…
