Since I'm going to be broke this summer, I'm going to be recycling a lot of my clothes. With everything we've had going on within the past year (Europe, eloping, wedding celebration, moving, etc.), I've been REALLY LOW on funds. I feel like it's been forever since I've bought any fabulous new pieces for my wardrobe...including shoes. When I get paid again in late August I'm not going to be able to go crazy since we're saving for more vacays and a house, but I've definitely got some wants. Now that I'm a teacher, my wardrobe has to be primarily conservative and wearable for day and night since I'm on a budget.
Even though I control the temperature in my classroom, the kids are always complaining. Since I stay cold, sweaters and cardis are necessities for school. Love this neutral linen cardy by DKNY, $195.
I've been DYING for a blazer for about a year or so now. Still have yet to invest in one. I really want a one to layer. They go with anything! It's a perfect way to dress up skinny jeans and a tee. More reasonably prices Bop Basics (shopbop), $198. Oh and by more reasonably, I mean compared to this Smythe blazer at $555.
I die for these. Since I stand and walk all day, flats are practically the most important necessity for teacher fashion. I adore the summer suede and neutral color (maybe I need more color in my life?). I imagine pairing them with a bright, casual dress like this:
Dress: T-Bags, $172; Shoes: KORS Michael Kors, $165
Now I LOVE Tory Burch ($150). These are freaking adorable. I doubt there is any chance they will ever be available come late August (shopbop only had size 8 and 9 left as of now). But I want these SO BAD. These are probably my favorite wants. Since I doubt they'll be available, I'm hoping to try my hand with a pair of these Toms:
I'm hoping to be down in pound by the end of the summer so I can invest in some smaller sizes as well :)
