Spring and summer are right around the corner. We have two upcoming weddings in the months to come. They are both destination weddings so we have some traveling. One is even at a tropical destination. My travel plans are done below!

 

  1. Nashville, TN – I am heading to Nashville for my sister’s Bachelorette party in April. I have never been to Nashville, but it has definitely been on my travel list.
  2. Temecula, CA – My sister’s wedding is is Temecula at a winery in April. We will be spending a weekend in Temecula celebrating her wedding.
  3. Hawaii – We will be attending a destination wedding in May. A groomsmen from our wedding will be getting married on the Big Island.

 

These next few months are jammed packed with travels and celebrations! 🙂

My Outfit Details: DRESS Baby Blue Floral Print Dress  // HEADBAND Pearl Headbands  (set of three) // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Earrings // SHOES Lace Up Espadrille Sandals

It’s no secret, Amazon is everyone’s new bestie when it comes to finding cute and affordable clothes. I was shocked when I stumbled across this beautiful floral dress. I had been eyeing this exact same dress on an online boutique just days prior. I was able to order it on Amazon for over 50% off. Woot woot!

I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with the hubby and my adorable little kitten, Rosie.

With Love,

pink floral LoveShackFancy dress

DSC_1993DSC_2026DSC_2001DSC_2014DSC_1990DSC_2038DSC_2017DSC_1995

My Outfit Details: DRESS LoveShackFancy Boho Dress  (same dress, different pattern) // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Studded Earrings  // RINGS Gold Sparkly Ring Trio Set // HEADBANDS Gold Pearl Headband  (comes in a set of three) // SHOES Suede Nude Heels

If money wasn’t an option and I could wear only one brand for the rest of my life . . . it would definitely be LoveShackFancy. Hands down! Their silk fabrics, their effortless designs, and their stunning designs are literally what dreams are made of! I will wholeheartedly admit that I stalk their Instagram on the daily for outfit inspiration.

I scored this dress while shopping the sale rack and I was shocked when it was in my size and marked down by almost 75% percent! I literally scoured the internet to find the exact dress. Unfortunately, this dress is currently available but only in a different pattern. Nonetheless, it is still beyond stunning in the different pattern 🙂

how to style camel and black denim

My Outfit Details: TOP Camel Colored Tunic Sweater  // JEANS Black Distressed Denim Jeans  // HEADBAND Black Braided Headband  // RINGS Layered Sparkly Gold Rings  // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Studs  // SUNGLASSES Black Karen Walker Sunnies // SHOES Nude Suede Pumps

I’ve always been a fan of pastel pink and twirl-worthy dresses. As of late though, I’ve been venturing into the land of neutrals. In particular, I’ve been ogling over a signature duo: camel and black.

While doing some retail therapy a couple weeks back, I stumbled upon this darling combo above. Even though the pieces are causal, the combination of the two colors and the added accessories create a more amped up outfit. Popping on a pair of nude suede pumps definitely helped to sell the deal.

My Outfit Details: BLAZER Houndstooth Patterned Jersey Blazer // SHIRT Black V-Neck Tee // JEANS Dark Wash Skinny Jeans  // HEADBAND Black Braided Headband // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Studded Earrings  // RINGS Gold Sparkly Layered Rings  // SHOES Black Leather Booties // PURSE Black Crossbody Purse  (similar linked)

Happy January 1, 2020! We spent the evening in our pajamas on the couch while watching Downton Abbey. It was a relaxing evening and I am grateful for the simplicity of it.

These past few months I have noticed that my style is evolving. While shopping, I am definitely reaching for more classic and timeless pieces to add to my wardrobe. I know that is the direction I will be heading into towards the New Year.

In this case, I have styled a notable houndstooth patterned jersey blazer. I have always loved the looked of blazers, but I always have had troubles styling them in the past. I think I have finally gotten the hang of it! I know this look will definitely be repeated time and time ago in the future!

trendy teacher outfit

DSC_1777DSC_1827DSC_1852DSC_1778DSC_1824DSC_1853DSC_1825

My Outfit Details: Top Black Long Sleeve  // SKIRT Leopard Print Pleated Midi Skirt  // EARRINGS Studded Earrings  // RINGS Gold Crystal Rings // HEADBAND Black Braided Headband  // SHOES Black Leather Booties

As you may already know, I am a third grade elementary school teacher. It has been my vocational dream to be a teacher since I was in third grade myself. I am now in my third year of having my own classroom and I have definitely learned a thing or two.

When I rebranded my blog several months ago, I wanted to share more about my life and my passions. Blogging has always been a passion of mine because I love styling clothes. Several weeks ago, I decided that I wanted to start sharing more of my teacher wardrobe and outfits.

Obviously, when your Apple Watch indicates that you log over 10,000+ per day at your job, comfort is key. Comfort aside though, I still want to look cute and stylish. The pictures above showcase a typical outfit you will find me in: comfy cotton top, midi skirt, and extremely comfortable shoes.

Even though I am labeling these looks as “Trendy Teacher Looks,” they are outfits for everyone–not only teachers. If you are a teacher though, I hope this series provides you with some inspiration to amp up your teacher wardrobe.

With Love,

Jordan

leopard print party dress

My Outfit Details: DRESS Leopard Print Slip Dress // JACKET Black Moto Jacket (similar linked) // EARRINGS Black Heart Shaped Statement Earrings  // SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Sunnies  // SHOES Black Boots  (similar linked)

We had two Christmas parties this weekend, so the Ortlund household is definitely all partied out. We have two more this upcoming weekend, which means I have another party outfit to plan.

Alas, the perfect party dress has been found! This leopard print slip dress is an absolute stunner. I definitely styled my look a little more fabulous, but this dress can also be styled with an adorable pair of comfy flats and a chunky cardigan for a more causal party look.

I hope this holiday party season is full of love, laughter, and delicious food for you!

With Love,

Jordan
