I’ve been loving pleated skirts lately. A few months ago I found this yellow pleated skirt at ThredUP and I’ve been dying to share it on the blog. I’m also dying to actually wear it somewhere. I think that it would be the perfect teacher skirt. It makes me want to go out and get a new teaching job just so I can wear this skirt. But since I’m not going to actually do that, I guess I will share it with all of you incase you are looking for a little work wear inspiration. Read more
I have to say that I am really loving being a stay-at-home-mom right now. It’s so great being available all the time for my kids and not having to worry about my maternity leave ending soon. It wasn’t an easy adjustment for me at first. I really loved being a working mom too. There are some days where I really miss starting my morning early and heading to work. I loved being a preschool teacher. I loved the kids, I loved my co-workers, but most of all I loved planning out my work outfits. Call me crazy, but I loved planning out what I was going to wear for the workweek. I’d plan out my outfits for the week in advance. I’d always try to mix and match my clothes the best I could and wear something new each day. I always felt that when you are working with the same people every day, you start to learn their wardrobe. That’s why I always tried to wear something a little different each day.Read more

I use to hear the word boutique and think of a small specialty store where the prices and styles were out of my league. I now hear the word boutiques and get excited. As a busy working mom, I do a lot of my shopping online. The days of going for a full day of shopping at the mall are over for me. I want to find affordable clothes fast, easy and online. That’s why I’ve grown to love shopping at online boutiques.
Turquoise & Tangerine is one of those online boutiques that has made me want to explore shopping more often at small online shops. They sell affordable, trendy clothes that are made for all women. It doesn’t matter your age, body shape or budget and I love that. The owner is a busy working mom herself, so she understands the importance of having a stress free shopping experience. Their clothes are comfortable and mom-friendly, but they don’t sacrifice style.
Today I’m sharing 2 pieces that I was gifted from Turquoise & Tangerine. The first is this eggplant ruffle bottom tunic. I always love a good tunic. It’s the perfect shirt to wear with leggings and a cardigan or you could dress it up for the classroom or a date night out. Plus this is a great year-round color. Below, I styled this top with my white jeans and my strappy sandals. I also styled it a bit more casual with my distressed jeans and wedge sandals.
(It was a pretty windy day when I took these pictures so I couldn’t resist this windy day picture.)
If you are looking for an easy shopping experience with casual trendy clothes, I highly recommend checking out Turquoise & Tangerine. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these pieces in different ways all summer long, so follow along with me on Instagram to see how I wear them!

I’ve been wanting to try the store Shein for a while now. I keep seeing their ads pop up on my Facebook and Instagram. Their clothes are so cute and trendy and even better, their prices are amazing! I was a little skeptical of them at first. It’s always a little nerve-racking ordering clothes online when you’ve never tried out the brand before. I finally decided that I would just give it a try anyway.
I think that a lot of people are afraid to order from Shein because their prices and cute styles seem too good to be true. Well, I can tell you that I was really happy with my Shein experience. I love my new tops and I know that I will be ordering from them again. I’m already eyeing their swimwear for this summer. If you’re looking to add a few trendy pieces to your wardrobe this spring, I would definitely not overlook Shein!
