My Favorite Dress for Fall

There are so many things that I love about this dress!  I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it!  I decided to be good and not spend the money at that time.  Then that weekend Loft had a sale online, and I couldn’t resist!  If you are loving this dress as much as I am check out Loft’s Halloween sale right now!  Everything is currently 40% online only using code MYSTERY40.

 

 

Let’s talk about what I love about this dress!  The fabric is thick and soft and oh so comfy!  It literally feels like you are wearing your PJ’s.  There is nothing better than a dress that looks great, but is not constricting.  My other favorite part about this dress is how forgiveness of the shape.  It flows away from the body hiding all the parts I want hidden.  My favorite part though about this dress is the sleeves!  Double bell sleeves that just make this dress a little extra special!  I cannot wait to style this dress with leggings and booties now that it is a little cooler!  So after I wrote this post I realized that it sold out!  Never fear though I linked some of my favorite bell sleeve dresses that are currently on sale.

When in Disney for Halloween

When we were in Disney a few weeks ago we went to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Last year, I was surprised by the amount of adults in costumes!  I decided to dress up this year, and brought pieces from home that could be interpreted as a Snow White costume.  While hubby and I went on a day date to Disney Springs we decided to do a little shopping.  In one of the shops we found the cutest Disney inspired dresses.  Hubby talked me into buying this adorable apple dress!  If you look closely you will see the dwarves faces in the apples!  I am so happy that I got this dress!  I received so many compliments, and even received an A+ on my dress from a Disney employee.  Hubby needed up talking me into getting this dress and another one that I can also wear to school.  I am excited that we are having costume parade this year so I can wear one of these fun dresses again!  Would you dress up for Halloween at Disney?

Anyone else have trouble packing for vacations? I seem to  have the hardest time packing for trips. I never know what I will feel like wearing on any given day and it stresses me out not having my full closet at my disposal.  Last year, when we went to Disney I didn’t plan very well.  Most of my outfits were based on cuteness not comfort.  This year, I decided that I wanted to be comfortable and cute!  I decided to try a capsule wardrobe.  Here are most of the pieces that I decided to bring.

Let’s face it when you are walking between 15,000 and 20,000+ steps in a day you have to wear comfortable shoes.  I have realized I don’t have the most comfortable sandals and athletic shoes are the best choice for me.  If you have any suggestions on cute and comfy sandals I will definitely love the advice.  When looking at Disney at what others wore I didn’t find too many cute sandals that looked comfortable.  So I decided to stick to my Nike’s and Keds.  With the basic colors I knew they would go with just about everything.

 

To plan what pieces I wanted to bring this time around I made a mental list of what were my criteria for my outfits.  I wanted to make sure that the pieces I brought were interchangeable.  I kept the idea of a capsule wardrobe in the back of my mind.  The next criteria, I wanted was comfort.  Temps while we were in Florida was in the high 80’s and low 90’s with the heat index close to 100.  It was crazy hot!

As I packed I made sure to actually try on the pieces that I wanted to bring.  I made sure that all the pieces went together and that I felt comfortable wearing them.  There is nothing worse than putting an item on, only to realize it doesn’t fit.  I also thought about each day and what our plans were going to be.  This made getting dressed so much easier throughout the week.  I loved my outfits that I planned and unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of everything.  When you are on the go nonstop I didn’t want to make everyone stop for my #ootd pictures.  What do you think of my Disney looks?

School Spirit Wear

As a teacher school spirit wear is an integral part of our district dress code.  On Fridays, we are able to wear jeans if we wear it with a school top.   As a lover of jeans, I usually look forward to these casual Fridays.   I dislike though always having to wear a tee.  I have set out find a formula that helps make any tee a little more fashionable.  I have found three pieces that can add a little extra pizzaz to any t-shirt in your closet.

Add a Cute Jacket or Cardigan

This is pretty much my solution to dressing up just about anything.  I don’t know what it is about a cardigan that makes any top in my closet look dressier.  Our school colors are purple and gold so this mustard colored cardigan from Outer Grace Boutique is the perfect addition to my closet!  It pairs perfectly with most of my school tees.  Plus it is the perfect length for dresses and tunics too!

 

 

Add a Statement Necklace

Adding a little sparkle to any tee makes it feel a little more special.  This can be a statement necklace with crystal stones or a simple piece that makes a statement all on its own.  I find that adding accessories can dress up any look and makes me feel a little more put together.

Add a fun pair of shoes

Shoes can add another layer of style to any tee.  Depending on what style you choose will dictate how dressy your tee looks.  A fun pair of slip on sneakers will be more casual or to dress up a tee add a pair of booties or cute flats!  If you are a teacher you need to check out MsHeadofClass2 on Etsy and her adorable pencil shoes!  They are incredibly comfortable too!
