Hello, friends! Despite it being nearly March, this winter has been a different beast than the last couple, at least here in Michigan. One of our biggest storms fell in mid-November, I went on a hiking trip in December without a coat, and my school has yet to have a single snow day this school year. For most of 2016, there’s been snow on the ground and below-freezing temperatures, but nothing to the extreme like the past few winters have held for us.
In the same way, I’ve felt my fashion choices fall into a steady pattern with no extremes as well. However, even on the days I feel like I’m recycling the same endless parade of leggings, scarves, sweaters, and boots to make it through, I try to find a way to change things up.
To finish this winter with some fun, here are a few looks I’ve been rocking this season!
This first look is a pretty standard one for me these days. I have a tendency to gravitate to loud patterns if I see colors I can work with in them. Orange and yellow are some of my favorite colors to wear and a have a fair share of staple items in those shades, so this dress was a no-brainer. I picked it up over the summer at H&M for about ten bucks and wore it on its own for a fair share of summer outings, then easily transitioned it into the colder months. If I had to choose one store to shop at for the rest of my life, I feel pretty confident H&M might be the one I’d choose. Their basics are consistently well-priced and the quality holds up better than similarly-priced pieces from other stores (at least in my experience). The cardigan here is from Target (I think I already swore my allegiance to their cardigans in my last guest post, but I know many teachers would agree with me). My tights are from Forever 21. With the amount of tights I wear, I typically get two years’ worth of use out of most pairs. I know what type I wear, so each fall I go online and replace any colors that are in bad shape or damaged when they go on sale. Lastly, my trusty boots are from Target and this is the second winter I’ve worn them as my primary footwear for the season. They’re lightweight enough to wear all day and not change out of, but still hold up well in the snow, ice, and salt.

It’s hard to believe the new school year is already upon us! Whether you’re starting up this week or have until after Labor Day (which falls extra late this year!), the beginning of August seems to turn a switch in terms of preparation and all sorts of school shopping.
Buying supplies with your own money can be a drag, but my favorite part of the back-to-school rush is purchasing some new teacher-friendly clothes! I’ve always loved putting together outfits and I take a lot of pride in transitioning my clothing from casual to professional settings just in the way I pair basic pieces.
Today I’m going to be showing you three looks for the fall with some recommendations for cheap and teacher-friendly clothing along the way!
In general, fall is a time for new beginnings and exciting changes - hopefully a new outfit for the first day of school or a fun shopping trip will help make your transition out of summer all the more fun and exciting!
