$30 Dress for Fall

My Outfit Details: DRESS Blue and White Patterned Maxi Dress // SHOES Nude Heeled Sandals // HEADBAND Blue Headband // EARRINGS Studded Kendra Scott Earrings

When it comes to patterns, everyone has their favorite color combo. Whether it is home decor or clothes, blue and white has always held a special place in my heart. There is just something so classic and elegant about the combination of those two colors. When I first saw this dress, I feel in love with the colors and the fit. I immediately decided that it was the perfect dress for transitioning into fall. I quickly purchased it in two different color patterns. Below is the second color I purchased it in. For the $30 price tag, it truly is such an amazing dress!

LoveShackFancy looks for less

My Outfit Details: DRESS White Ruffled Dress // HEADBAND Leopard Print Headband // BRACELET Gold Coin Bracelet (c/o) // PURSE Louis Vuitton Crossbody Clutch // SHOES White Espadrille Sandals (similar linked)

If I could live in one brand for the rest of my life, it would be LoveShackFancy. The effortless styles, feminine prints, and luxurious fit of every piece is breathtaking. Since I am currently ballin’ on a teacher budget, I have to find other items that have the LoveShackFancy look, but a teacher-friendly price. Since most people also cannot afford $300-$400+ dresses, I thought you would benefit from a round-up of the items as well! Enjoy!

Classroom Supplies & Back to School Shopping with Walmart

My Outfit Details: DRESS Floral Print Dress // TEACHER PLANBOOK “Teaching in a Work of Heart” Planner // STORAGE BIN Teacher Storage Caddy (I have so many of these in my classroom! They help keep me organized!) 

Back to School shopping has always been one of my favorite times of the year.  As a teacher, Back to School shopping has a whole new meaning and importance. I now use Back to School shopping as the time to stock up on supplies for my students and prepare for the new school year. 

Even though the start of the school year may look a little different this year, I am still heading into the year feeling confident and prepared thanks to Walmart. Walmart was my one stop shopping place for all of my teaching needs. I found the cutest teacher planbook, storage bins (can never have enough of those!), and numerous class sets of all the necessary school supplies–all at a very affordable teacher friendly price. They even have an adorable Classroom Decor section! 

I still secretly love picking out my first day of school outfit, too!  This year, I even found an adorable dress at Walmart to wear on the first day of school. The lightweight fabric and floral pattern make it the perfect addition to my teacher wardrobe. 

We all know that this time of the year is one of the busiest for teachers! Walmart makes getting ready for the school year convenient and easy with free 2-day shipping or next day delivery. I rounded up some of my favorite Walmart classroom finds below.

To all of my fellow teachers, cheers to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. We’ve got this!

#1: Teacher Planbook: I always make sure to get a cute planner since I use it the whole year.

#2: Flair Pens: These pens are the best for grading. I always love how many fun colors there are. 

#3: Big Box of Pencils: This is the best brand of pencils. They hardly ever break. All of my other teacher friends always stock up on these, too!

#4: Crayon Bundle Set: I like the color options in the 24 count crayon set!

#5: Scissor Set: This brand of scissors always lasts the whole year without breaking. I also love how bright these are because the color makes it easier for kids to find them in their pencil box. 

#6: Glue Stick Box: You can never have enough glue sticks during the year.

#7: Pocket Folders: I always give my students three folders for different subjects. It helps to keep them organized. 

With Love,


Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.

fall sweater & favorite amazon prime sunglasses


My Outfit Details: SWEATER Cream Crochet Knit Sweater // SHORTS White High Rise Denim Shorts  // EARRINGS Tortoise Shell Printed Hoops  // NECKLACE Gold Layered Necklace // PURSE: Louis Vuitton Crossbody // SHOES Pointed Loafers

We nearing the final countdown of  the month of July. The arrival of August always brings one word the mind: FALL. Much like my other girl counterparts, I love fall and all that it brings: candles, Starbuck coffee recipes, fall colors, etc. With the transition of a new season, I start to fill my closet with fall themed pieces.

Sadly, even though the months of fall arrive here in California , the weather tends to feel more like summer until early-November. Even though I want to wear sweaters, boots, and jeans . . .  the 90+ degree weather says otherwise. As a result, I am left with finding clothing pieces that are bearable for the warmer weather. This creamy colored knit sweater is the perfect fall transitioning piece! For the next few months, it is lightweight enough to be paired with a cute pair of white or denim shorts. It will also look great in the cooler months when paired with an animal print scarf and a cute pair of boots!

While taking these pictures, I also wanted to share my most popular Amazon items: Sunglasses! Both of the pairs below have a designer-feel at a very affordable price point (under $15!).


#1 Sunglasses:  Tortoise Print Sunglasses – These are my go-to pair. They match every outfit and they are very comfortable.


#2 Sunglasses: Bold Black Sunnies – I wear this pair when I want to make more of a statement. They are great quality for the inexpensive price point.

$25 gingham spring dress


My Outfit Details: DRESS Tiered Gingham Dress  // KIMONO Being Knit Layering Kimono  // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Studded Earrings  // NECKLACE Gold Layered Necklace  // SUNGLASSES Black Designer Dupe Sunnies  // SHOES Nude Leather Sandals  // PURSE Tory Burch Gold Chain Tote

While browsing online recently, I stumbled upon the cutest and girliest $25 light green gingham patterned dress. I clicked *add to cart* immediately, and I haven’t looked back since! Since Los Angeles tacked on three more months of a Stay at Home order, these types of outfits are giving me LIFE right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love a comfortable loungewear look as much as the next girl, but I challenged myself to put on a dress every single day this week. It has definitely helped to brighten my mood.

I hope you are doing well and hanging in there ❤

workouts I have been loving lately


My Outfit Details: DRESS Polka Dot Ruffled Long Sleeve Dress  // EARRINGS Straw Lightweight Earrings // BELT Straw Belt  (adjustable) // NECKLACE Gold Layered Necklace // SHOES Nude Scalloped Leather Heeled Sandals

Working out has always been a huge stress reliever for me. Much like everyone else, my gym was temporarily closed down with the quarantine restrictions. Therefore, I have to turn to other options of getting exercise in. I definitely have hoped onto the Youtube and Instagram video workouts. I am loving all of the different type of “class” like workouts that are on those platforms.

I have been working out more than ever, and I am definitely starting to see some results. I wanted to compile a list of some of my favorite workout videos that I have done these past few weeks.


Workout List:

#1: 30-Minute HIIT Workout: I did this workout with my husband. Wowza, we thought it was the most difficult video workout we have done. It was a great, challenging, but quick workout. No equipment is required, which is a huge plus.

#2: Barre Arm Workout: This workout is only 10 minutes, but your arms will be dying by the third set of reps. I only use 2 pound weights with this one. I combine this workout with various other arm exercises when I focus on arms.

#3: Barre Bellyfat Burn Workout: This workout is short and focuses on the lower abdominal area. This workout is a great video to complete after a cardio workout or run.

#4: 30 Minute Barre Workout with Dumbbells: I used 2 pound dumbbells for this one. It was a quick but challenging workout. Barre workouts tend to be my favorite because they target every muscle group. I am always sore after them!

#5: 30 Minute Full Body Strength Training Workout: Here is another fabulous full body workout! This workout includes circuits that target every muscle group. I used 5 pound dumbbells for this workout.

Happy Sweating 🙂

With Love,
