Looking to mix up your dresses? How about a shirt UNDER your dress. 
Mind blown? You're welcome.

This was a heel day at work (some days the kids leave at 3, some days they leave at 4:30) - the day I wore this, the kids left at 3 & the flats went on at 3:01.

Day 2 of the teacher capsule wardrobe in action - this dress, sweater (currently on sale for under $25!) & blouse (similar style) are definitely heavy hitters in my work outfit rotation!
Don't forget about the rain boot giveaway running now. Enter here!

  16. Love the vibrant colors of this outfit!! I do love layering with a top underneath my dresses to get extra mileage out of them.

  17. I know you joke about "minds being blown," but mine kind of is....because I've never actually thought to pair anything under a dress. I'm all about layering on top of them though.

    Loving the brights, too!

  20. Thanks lady! While I do like getting a more creative with what I wear on the weekends, turns out I have to get dressed the other 5 days of the week too!

  21. Thanks! Apparently I am very adventurous in the morning… when you are digging through your dark closet at 5 am, many things sound good, some that probably shouldn't, so I'm glad this color pairing worked out!

  22. This pair in particular is magical. I have another pair of Cole Haan wedges and these are the only pairs of heels I can last in all day. Worth the money for me, for sure!
