6 Tops to Wear with Green Pants

Green pants are everywhere right now. So, how do you know which ones to buy? Look no further, I have found the perfect pair!!!! They are from LOFT and they are incredibly soft and stretchy. They are made of a legging material so they fit like a glove while still giving you room to move around and eat whatever you want! I am obsessed with these pants so much that I picked 6 different tops to wear with them. AND the color of these pants is listed as autumn sage, which couldn’t be more perfect for fall right now.

I know that sometimes it’s hard to pick the right color top to match with colored pants. So, I have a guide to show you how versatile green pants can be.

#1 Patterns

IMG_3624IMG_3625IMG_3631

This patterned top has a gorgeous flowery pattern in it. The colors are reminiscent of fall, which makes it match perfectly with these green pants. I did a front tuck with this top so it wasn’t as flowy. And, I added some fun earrings and the perfect pink flats to match. So, my tip to you is not to be afraid of pairing a busy patterned top with colored pants. It totally works!

#2 Navy

IMG_3633IMG_3637IMG_3642

Green and navy look amazing together! I especially love how flowy this top is. I added nude shoes and some fun statement earrings to this look. I think it would be perfect for a date night this fall.

#3 Tan

IMG_3645IMG_3648IMG_3656

My go to color combination with green has always been tan. I think it is such a classic combination and it looks really sharp. I love this simple cream tanktop with a tan cardigan. Just add a long necklace and tan booties and then this look just screams fall!

#4 Blush

IMG_3666IMG_3672IMG_3675

I never thought pink and green would match so well together! But, the blush color of this sweater is absolute perfection paired with these green pants. This is definitely a winning combination in my book. I added a neutral shoe (my summer favorites) and some fun statement earrings. I wore this look on Friday because I just couldn’t wait to share it with you. I love this outfit so much! You definitely need to try this combination.

#5 Black and White

IMG_3683IMG_3688IMG_3695

When in doubt, stick with the basics. Black looks good with green pants. White looks good with green pants. But, black AND white look amazing with green pants. This striped top is perfect for these cooler fall days. I added black booties and a simple black statement necklace. This combination truly highlights these green pants.

#6 Cranberry

IMG_3701IMG_3712IMG_3710

This combination is a little bold, but I love it. I chose simple pieces, like a plain black t-shirt, black flats, and a statement necklace. But, the addition of the cranberry cardigan brings this look to a new level. The combination of green and cranberry is just a little glimpse of Christmas without being too much. And as I’m writing this, I’m thinking that I might just have to wear this outfit on Christmas Eve this year!

Go check out these amazing green pants. You won’t regret it. I might just have to buy them in a few other colors too 😉

3 Ways to Wear a White T-Shirt to Work

HAPPY BACK TO SCHOOL to all the teachers out there 🙂 I am dedicating this post to YOU!

I am so excited to share this post with you today! When I first started my blog, this is a post that I knew I wanted to write. And I’m hoping this is just one of many like this! I am taking the plain white t-shirt that every girl has in her closet and showing you 3 ways that you can wear it to work. Yes, that’s right…TO WORK!!!

#1

IMG_3445IMG_3449

The first look is probably the one I wear the most often. I love wearing skirts! And, this polka dot pencil skirt is so fun and versatile. It looks classy and sophisticated paired with a plain white t-shirt tucked into it, some fun statement earrings, and nude heels. I love the navy in the skirt paired with the cobalt blue of these earrings. I will definitely be wearing this look to work repeatedly this year. I will mix it up with different skirts and different color t-shirts, but I love this look! This outfit would also look great with the t-shirt knotted at the bottom, instead of tucking it in. That would be a great way add a little edge to this outfit 🙂

The second look is the plain white t-shirt tucked into trouser pants with a fun belt. I think this look is perfect for work because the slight flare of the pants dress up the outfit without making it too formal. And, adding a skinny glitter belt accentuates your waist while adding a fun and flirty element to the look. I think this look is just the right combination of casual and dressy for my work setting. If you feel like this is a little too casual for you, add the blazer to the outfit to pull it all together (and keep you warm).

The third look is the most fun! Since I love skirts so much, I had to do two looks with a skirt. I think this maroon corduroy skirt is perfect for fall and looks great with a plain white t-shirt tucked in. And, to make the look pop even more I added this adorable pink vest. I love wearing a pink vest and a pink skirt in this look. Since they are in the same color family, but different shades, it makes the color stand out even more. And, to tie the entire look together, I added a long tassel necklace and peep toe wedges. This is the ultimate fall outfit and it all starts with the plain white t-shirt.

Never think that an ordinary item in your closet like a plain white t-shirt can’t be dressed up enough to wear to work. Feel free to let me know what other casual pieces you would like to see turned into work looks!

50% off at J.Crew Factory

I love sales!!!! I rarely ever buy items at full price, especially at J.Crew Factory store. Every time I walk into that store, they are always having major sales. And, this Labor Day weekend is no exception. Everything at J.Crew Factory is currently 50% off until Tuesday, September 5th. I would RUN there and stock up on some great back to school looks.

This entire outfit (shirt, skirt, and earrings) are part of the sale!!!

This floral skirt is perfection. I love the pattern and the colors. The pinks, blues, and greens are beautiful and bright. Perfect for back to school. Another great thing about this skirt… it has pockets J I bought it in a 2 petite and it fits perfectly. It is a little high- waisted, which makes it perfect for tucking in a top. I wanted it in petite because I like my skirts to hit above my knee. If they are any longer, they make me look even shorter than I am! In petite, this skirt hits my legs at the perfect spot.

This navy blue striped top is perfect for fall! It has a fun ruffle sleeve and it is made of a thicker material. I love it tucked into this skirt. Pattern mixing is my new obsession! This skirt has a lot going on so I wouldn’t pair it with a really busy top. It would look great with a solid color top, but this striped shirt is the perfect match. The navy stripes match the blue in the skirt, and the ruffle sleeve adds an extra something something. This top would also look great with jeans and boots for a great fall casual look. You can guarantee that I will be wearing it a lot this fall. Can’t wait to show you other ways to style it! In terms of sizing, I got an XXS in this top and I love the way it fits. I would go down a size for a more fitted feel, or stay true to size if you want a little looser fit. I like this top more fitted, especially for tucking into skirts.

Lastly, these earrings. Statement earrings are another new obsession of mine. And these cobalt blue ones certainly make a statement and really bring this entire outfit together. They match perfectly with the colors in this floral skirt. The cobalt blue color can match with so many great fall outfits. I paired them with purple in a previous blog post. I just love how versatile and fun they are. Definitely one of my favorite purchases!

The BEST Hair Ties

To all the girls whose hair falls out everywhere they go, this post is for you! When I look around my room, I can see pieces of my hair all over the place. It sheds constantly and I can’t stop it. I don’t have particularly thick or thin hair…it’s somewhere in the middle. And I have found the best hair ties that do not pull out any pieces of my hair when I take them out. These hair ties are gentle on your hair and don’t leave a big crease line when you take them out. They stretch well and the shape of them help to grip your hair without having to tie them so tight. I have one of these hair ties around my wrist at all times. They start out very tight and small, but the more you wear them the looser they get.

IMG_3545

IMG_3401

In the picture above, the top row are hair ties that I have not used yet. As you can see, they are very tight. But, they stretch a lot. The hair ties on the bottom are the ones that I use often and they have stretched enough that they are very comfortable to wear around my wrist.

IMG_3547IMG_3551

If I am going to the gym or doing something really active, I will use a different type of hair tie in. I use the Vidal Sassoon hair ties that are a little bit thicker and stay tight in my hair. I do not like to wear these (or any hair tie, for that matter) for a long period of time. But, for going to the gym and being active, a hair tie that stays tight and holds my hair well is a necessity.

IMG_3556IMG_3558

I am a girl who likes to wear her hair down. I blow dry or curl my hair almost every day. But, there are times when a girl has got to put her hair up. I put my hair up daily to brush my teeth, cook dinner, wash the dishes, etc. That’s why I absolutely love these hair ties!!! They are easy to put on and take off constantly. I don’t have to wrap them around my hair super tight for them to stay in place. If you have not tried these yet, I highly highly recommend that you do.

The Perfect End of Summer Look

I love this outfit so much!!! I’m so excited to share it with you guys for my last official week of summer. I start teaching again next week. I’m excited for a brand new school year, but I wish summer didn’t go by so quickly 😦

IMG_3529IMG_3532

Today I want to share this look with you. I am planning to wear it sometime during the first few weeks of school when it is still technically summer. I love the colors of this skirt. It does run a little big, so I would suggest going down a size. I am wearing an XXS. This skirt is so fun and it literally matches with every color top! The J.Crew factory store makes this skirt in so many different colors and patterns because it is truly a crowd favorite. The elastic at the waist makes it incredibly comfortable and the length and fit are great for a long day of teaching. The only thing that I don’t love about this skirt is that it wrinkles so easily! Lucky for me, I have a job where I stand all day long. But, if you were sitting all day in this skirt, it does gets very wrinkled when you sit down. But, other than that I absolutely adore this skirt!!!

IMG_3535IMG_3539

And now let me talk about this top. It’s perfection. It is a beautiful light pink color and I love the cut of it. The choker and v-neck detail look sophisticated, but sexy. It is perfect for work tucked into a skirt, or would look great with jeans for a weekend ready look. It’s a silky smooth material and is not see through. It comes in black and red also, which I have been eyeing. Waiting for some amazing Labor Day sales to go and grab it.

Don’t let this last week of summer go by too fast. Make sure to make the most of it…I know I will!

Two Back to School Looks

I hope you are all getting through the week! It’s only Wednesday, but knowing that the weekend is only a few days away is what’s getting me through. I love summer clothes: shorts, tanktops, sandals… But, I am anxiously awaiting September and the start of a new school year. I LOVE getting dressed for work every morning and I miss that in the summer time. Don’t get me wrong, I love relaxing and enjoying my summer but I am kind of really excited to start planning my work outfits again. And, I may have already started outfit planning. Here are two great fall work looks ready for September!

IMG_3275IMG_3284IMG_3289

The first look defies the white pants after Labor Day rule. But, who cares? I think this is the perfect fall look! I love the white pants with the orange sweater. I haven’t seen a really good orange top in a long time, so this one was a must for me. It is made of an incredibly soft material and it is ¾ sleeved. It is more like long sleeves on me, but it is so cozy for fall and winter. If you are not into the orange color of this sweater, Loft also has this sweater in a marbled blue and white, which would also look great with this outfit. I would say this sweater fits true to size. I usually like my sweaters a little looser fitting and my regular size (XS) fits perfectly with a little bit of a looser feel. White pants, tan booties, and any sweater is the perfect combination for a back to school look.

IMG_3305IMG_3307IMG_3310

The second outfit combines my favorite print (leopard!) and this jade green top. To see more leopard outfits, click here. I love the color of this top. It screams fall to me because it is a nice dark green color and the details are amazing! Again, it is ¾ sleeved, which makes it perfect for fall. And I can’t get over the detailing on the sleeves. I love this top tucked into a pencil skirt. But, it would also look great with work pants or even tied into a knot. I would say to size down in this top. I am wearing an XS and it is a little big on me. It is pretty long and I could probably wear it with leggings and it would be long enough to cover my butt.

Keep following along for more back to school looks and let the countdown begin!

One Outfit, Three Ways

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of button down shirts in my closet. I have them in different colors, patterns, and styles. But, this one from the Banana Republic Factory Store is my new favorite. It is an olive green color with a beautiful white and gray flower pattern on it. And the best part? The cold shoulder!

Being a teacher, sometimes I feel overdressed if I’m wearing a button down with a skirt to work. I have tried to come up with new ways to wear button downs that don’t make me feel too dressed up. So, I wanted to show you how to wear a button down shirt in three ways, depending on your dress code at work and how you’re feeling that day. And, if you don’t like to wear skirts, no problem! These three looks would also look great with pants. This top is thin enough that you can wear the long sleeves all year round, but it would look really cute with the sleeves rolled up a few times as well.

#1: SHIRT TUCKED IN

I think that tucking in a shirt is the most sophisticated way to wear a button down. This outfit would look great if you work in an office and have to wear business casual to work everyday. I love how put together and elegant it looks. And, that cold shoulder gives it something extra. This is no ordinary work look.

IMG_3228IMG_3236IMG_3227

 

#2: SHIRT UNTUCKED

Some people don’t like an untucked shirt, but I am not one of those people! I think untucking the shirt is a little less formal, which is perfect for my work setting. It makes the top more of a tunic on me (because I’m only 5’2”) and it makes my legs look longer, which I don’t mind at all. I think the untucked button down is still a nice look and I can’t get over how adorable that cold shoulder is.

IMG_3237IMG_3240IMG_3247

#3: SHIRT KNOTTED

 I think the most fun way to wear a button down shirt is to tie a knot in it at the bottom. If you undo the bottom two buttons and tie it into a double knot, you have brought the look to a new level. Adding the knot gives a little more shape to the look, depending on how loose or tight you tie it. Next time you want to add a little something extra to your typical button down work look, just add a knot at the end and it will be transformed into a different look that will be sure to get you lots of compliments!!!
