Happy Anniversary

Happy three year anniversary to my cutie pie hubs.  It’s been an amazing three years and I’m excited for what’s to come.  Here are some throwback photos from our wedding published in Ceremony Magazine.  It was a beautiful day full of bright colors, family and friends, and best of all, clown noses.

The title of this blog was inspired by the colors of our wedding yellow and grey.

OOTD: Leopard Pants, Black Sweater, Chambray Shirt, and Black Flats

In a feline mood

Today, I rewarded my five hours of straight grading with a stop at Ann Taylor Loft. I was happy to see a larger than usual clearance section and headed right there. To my delight and a little bit of grading coma, I found these two items: a pair of cheetah print pants and a cat print dress.


Both items were final sale totaling a little under $25.00. After much debate, I got them knowing final sale items cannot be returned. Now, what to do with them? I have some ideas. For the cheetah pants I will try pairing them with a black button up, black blazer, and black pointy flats. For the cat dress a black belt, black tights, and black boyfriend sweater. In my mind this all works. I am hoping the black neutral colors will tone done the bold and kinda crazy prints. We will just have to see what I come up with. I will keep you posted!

Any advice for me? What would you pair these items with?

Go Green!

Since my most popular post has been “How to wear green jeans“, I wanted to share how I am wearing them.  Below I paired my green jeans with a cream loose top with eyelet detail, a grey sweater, black shoulder bag, and leopard flats.  As a teacher, I love flats.  They’re cute, go with almost everything, and are the perfect shoes to walk from student to student checking their work and making sure they’re on task.

How do you wear your green jeans?  Any other colored jean trends you are currently rocking?

How to wear green jeans

We’ve had some unseasonably warm weather these past few weeks in Chicago.  I have busted out my Spring wardrobe much earlier than usual.  To welcome Spring, I have embraced the colored jean trend.  Today, I am wearing my green jeans and a striped dark blue and white tank top.  I was ready to take the little guy out for our daily walk when it started to rain.  Looks like April showers came early.  Instead, here I sit, with my cup of tea, browsing the internet.  Excited about my green jeans, I asked myself, “What else can I wear with my green jeans?”  Here is what I found:
