Being back to school is tough!
I do love dressing up every day so that's been fun
but it's exhausting being in charge of twenty-six 3rd graders

Here are my favorite looks of the week:
1.  Fun Friday
 top - TJ Maxx (NEW)
belt - thrifted
skirt - LOFT
giraffey flats - Nine West
monogrammed statement necklace - getdolledupboutique
button earrings - Polka-Dotty Place etsy shop

 2. First day of School in my 9th year of teaching!!
cardigan & belt - TJ Maxx
Purple pleated, high to low dress - Limited (NEW)
heels - Ralph Lauren
Statement necklace - Mae Badiyan Jewelry Boutique
This necklace was one of my first statement necklaces and I can't get enough of it.
I love it because it's so unique, it was made in limited quantities
 so everyone and their mom won't be sporting it and I wear it a lot!
I love all the details on this dress!!
 Thanks to my cute friend Barb for being my photographer this day :)
Glad I now own a bubble necklace like hers!

 3. Minty
 cardigan - JC Penneys
silky top and skirt - Limited (NEW)
dangly earrings - Macys
green belt - Liz Claiborne
Ruffley flats - Wal-Mart
