Monday Musings: Wish List

Untitled #16


Bringing you something other than sweaters and booties for this Monday Wish List! I've been a big fan of Devon Baer fan since she was selling clothes via Etsy, The clothes are beautiful but unfortunately, the price tag has kept them on my wish list and not in my closet.  I'm hoping to score this dress for the holidays this year  - maybe this could count as a push present?? How cute is the ruffle neckline and the gray tartan print? LOVE. I am also loving these half D'Orsay pumps from Kristin Cavallari (whom I have such a girl crush on) for Chinese Laundry and think they would pair quite nicely with the Devon Baer dress! I love the open side and the 3 inch heel is the perfect height, in my opinion.

 It's hard to believe but there are only 66 days until Thanksgiving and only 96 until Christmas... which means there are only 47 days until this baby's due date! Yikes.

Five on Friday!

1. Old Navy Striped Tunic. I cannot say enough good things about this tunic: the length, the 3/4 quarter length sleeve, and the slight stretch the 2% of spandex gives the tunic make it a great everyday staple. I am currently wearing a medium with a maternity tank underneath and it fits over the bump quite nicely. I have the neutral and black in size medium and I bought the blue in a large as this bump ain't gettin' any smaller so I thought it prudent to have one that will fit in those last couple of weeks! Yes, I own all three colors, I love it that much.

2. Aden + Anais Clothing. Aden + Anais, makers of the cult favorite swaddle blanket, recently launched a clothing line made of the same material with an added hint of stretch. I've bought several of their blankets in anticipation of the mini's arrival and am super excited by the prospect of baby clothes made of the same material and the same adorable prints. There are several styles available: rompers, tank tops, short-sleeve kimono, long-sleeve kimono, hoodies... I could seriously buy the whole website. I mean, just look at this adorableness... (it should be noted that I have unhealthy obsession with stars and all things star printed).

3.  Evelyn Henson prints. These prints are simply too cute! We are having our master bathroom re-painted this week and I am thinking a few of these prints need to grace the walls. Due to a paint botch on my part initially, I am heading in a different direction decor-wise. I'll share the mood board with you next week, but couldn't wait to share these fun prints with you all today! I absolutely adore the cities prints. She also carries journals, phone cases, and mugs!

4. Okay, so this is totally random but do you all remember The Magic School Bus? First and foremost, it was a book series but in the mid-nineties it became a television series. If you're not familiar, its a science based series in which the eccentric teacher Ms. Frizzle takes her students on a 'field trip' to explore various science topics such as: goes to seed (gardening), for lunch (digestive system), kicks up a storm (weather). I show 'The Magic School Bus For Lunch' to my students during the nutrition unit and it does such a wonderful job of illustrating how the digestive system works. I don't remember watching the show as a kid but I love showing it to my students. I've seen a few other episodes like 'Plays Ball' which is an excellent episode explaining physics. The episodes are engaging and fun while explaining an important scientific topic. I found the complete series on Amazon and I am seriously considering buying it for my own children to watch in the future.

Monday Musings: Wish List

Untitled #14

Leith Dolman Sleeve Pullover // Spanx 'Look-at-Me' Shaping Leggings//Sole Society 'Natasha' Boot 

Did not mean to step away from the blog for a whole month but no matter how many years I've been teaching, the beginning of the school year is always hectic! But as usual, things have settled down and I'm getting back into my school year routine which means back to blogging on the regular.

Bringing you another comfy and casual fall outfit on this Monday. As I've mentioned, I love slouchy sweaters and this one is no exception! It does have dolman sleeves which give me pause because they can really go either way, they either enhance the outfit or they're restricting. You just never know! I've heard great things about these Spanx leggings and am eyeing them specifically for my post baby days, with the hopes they'll hold some of the inevitable jiggly bits in for some time. Oh, these booties. If I am being honest, this is not the type of shoe I would normally go for but I saw these in the Sole Society catalog that I got in the mail and I was instantly drawn to them. I love the color and the flat heel with leggings and a slouchy sweater is exactly the type of look I am going for this fall. Pair this with a pumpkin spice latte and it's the perfect #basic outfit!! Here's a side note confession for you: I don't like PSLs. I'll stick with hot green tea or a vanilla latte any day!
