Spring Uniform

As soon as the temps jumped above 50 this week, I got the itch. Literally, my legs were itching from being trapped inside tights for the last 5 months! So, I’m done. No more tights! And once I take them off, there’s no turning back for me. I full steam ahead into my typical spring […]

Teacher Style Round-Up

I have this recurring nightmare about the first day of school where I show up to greet the students wearing *GASP* a twin cardigan set, mom-jeans and an apple-bead necklace! I wake up in a cold sweat, before slowly reassuring myself that this is not reality. But not too long ago, this would have been […]

Pop of Color

As a recovering black-on-black-on-black addict, as I’ve discussed here, every day is a struggle to rainbow-fy my wardrobe. I don’t have a perfect record, and if I buy one more black top or flowy cardigan, I’m going to officially become the physical embodiment of the stereotypical drama teacher who looks like she just walked out […]

What’s New in Tights?

I feel like we’re getting to that age where your bare legs start to look weird.  Does anyone else notice this? Like all of a sudden our knees are a little saggy, and our shins bruise for seemingly no reason.  As more and more maxi dresses make their way into my closet during the summer, […]

The Husbands Take Over

Erinn had the brilliant idea [and I’m using this term loosely] to have the guys dress us for a week as a fashion experiment.  The rules were simple: we were allowed to veto if things didn’t fit, were inappropriate for work, or if their choices were too ridiculously embarrassing for public consumption. Other than that, […]

Pretty in Pink

It was a right of passage for every girl growing up in the 80s and 90s-the obligatory viewing of “Pretty in Pink”.  From the first frame when Molly Ringwald steps onto the screen in her signature color, my love affair with this fiery, red-head, pink-donning, brat-packer began. I imagined myself just like Andi in the […]

Juxtaposition: Our Fave Literary (and Style) Device

We’re not trying to get all didactic or anything here, but English teachers can’t resist talking about juxtaposition.  It’s certainly our most favorite literary device, if not all-time favorite word in the English language. For a quick lesson, juxtaposition is placing two things near each other for a contrasting effect.  Like Garrett’s Popcorn, cheesy cheddar […]

Shopping With Friends

It’s no secret that MB and I like to shop. In stores. In cyberspace. In our dreams. Shopping is one of favorite pastimes, but I’ll admit that I usually like my shopping to be a solitary act. It’s a time where I can move at my own pace and try on pieces without judgement. But […]

Back to School: A Week’s Worth of Teacher Style

Even though we are still fully in denial that the summer has come to an end (and subsequently our maternity leaves as well)), there’s nothing we love more than playing around with fashion. For me, teaching calls on my creative side daily, but I also love that this job gives me the freedom to get […]

Fall Shoes for the Whole Family

I know everyone’s manicured toes are doing open-air wiggles in flip flops right now, but it is time to start thinking about fall shoes.  Before we know it, it’ll be time to reign in our piggies in all kinds of leather and suede adorableness.  I don’t know about you, but I’m really hard on my […]
