I hate cold. I hate snow. But I love me some snow days!!! As a teacher, there is no better 3am phone call than the one telling you to turn that alarm off and sleep in 🙂 Even though you can’t tell by these pictures {taken over the weekend}, Oklahoma was coated in ice & snow yesterday. That meant lots of movie watching & a little cleaning for my Monday! No complaining here.

If you have been following me for any amount of time at all on Instagram, you might know that I am a big fan of mixing prints. Sometimes it’s as simple as leopard shoes & a polka dot top while other times I’ll throw in three prints layered together! Today’s look might not be for everybody, but anyone can mix prints in a {probably more subtle} way that works for them. What prints or patterns are your go-to?

Hope you ladies have a fabulous Tuesday!


Whew! That weekend flew by way too fast! 

One thing making me feel better? This darling top from Le Boutique Shop! It’s the perfect mix of stripes & chambray. Two things I wear a lot. It’s the perfect piece to dress up with a blazer or pencil skirt during the day and then make it much more casual like I did with jeans & a jacket for nights or weekends! I also foresee this striped top being perfect for spring with printed shorts or distressed denim. LBS has so many cute things that are part of their new spring line. This print mix top and the tulle skirt {in 3 color options} are my favorites 🙂

I want to talk for a second about my hometown {where these pictures were taken}.. It’s a small little place with a population of about 11,000 people. Webb City is the kind of place you can’t go anywhere without running into someone you know. Even though I haven’t actually lived in WC since 2008, I will always call it “home.” Jake & I’s parents still live there & we visit often. Perhaps one of my favorite things about this sweet town is going downtown. The historic buildings have such great character & I love the details and uniqueness of each building. I am so happy to see more businesses {slowly} making downtown their home. Maybe one day my own little dream of a shop in downtown WC will come true… One day after the military life. 

Hi girls! I’m wrapped up in parent/teacher conferences all morning so let’s knock these Friday Confessions out! I’ve linked up with Leslie to share 🙂

1. I confess that I don’t think I can resist the temptation of a President’s Day Bauble Bar sale! The entire site is 20% off with code ‘PREZ20’ but if you buy 3 items you can score 25% off with code ‘PREZ25’ & a purchase of 4+ items gets you 30% off with code ‘PREZ30’. YAY! It is the perfect time to score my favorite statement necklace {that I wear entirely too much}, a pair of double sided pearl earrings, a long tassel necklace, or this pearl cuff bracelet. I own all of these items & promise that you will love them too 🙂

2. I confess that parent/teacher conferences make me nervous!! This is only my 2nd year as a teacher and technically our conferences are “student-led,” but I still get nervous in a room full of parents! I seriously try my absolute best to teach my students all of the things they need to know about geography and still throw in important life lessons. But with frequent {educational} talks about religion, politics, etc. I am always apprehensive of how it goes at home. I would never want to over-step any boundaries but I think it is imperative for the future generation to know what it going on in our world! <end teacher rant>

3. I confess that I am still obsessed with yesterday’s white + navy look. I know it’s nothing especially new or riveting but it’s a color combo that I think works in any season. And since our temperatures go from 80+ degrees one week to snow & ice the next, that kind of versatility works perfectly in my closet!

4. I confess that I am a Red Bull addict. {sorry mom!} I don’t drink coffee, tea, or pop. But an energy drink is definitely my vice. I need to start buying them like this. ha! Super unhealthy & not exactly the best thing for you… But that’s what confessions are for right? 😉

Have a fabulous weekend ladies! I’ll see you right back here on Monday!
