Ya know how I told you in March that I got a new job?

Well, guess what? I got a new job!

I know, I didn't last very long as Assistant Principal. What can I say? Management is not my cup of tea. Plus, the whole time I was at that job, I desperately just wanted to be in the classroom, teaching little ones!

So, after about a month of searching {and WOW it is difficult to interview for a new job while you still have another job! I felt like a double-agent or something}, I was able to find a Kindergarten Teaching position!

I get to be in the classroom every day, teaching precious little children. Yay!

That being said, they have a different dress code: collared shirts, which I typically despise, so wish me luck! To counter-act the collared shirts, I've been spicing up my look with cute skirts, fabulous cardis, skinny jeans {oh how I love "Donate $ to charity and Wear Jeans on Friday"}, and adorable flats.

Here are some work-appropriate items I'm currently loving:

The Puma flats are a little unusual for me, but they are sooooo comfortable! They also have them in a mushroom color which are not available online, but they do have them at the King of Prussia Puma store, which is just 20 minutes away.

Does your job have a dress code that makes you cringe?

Have you seen any other clothes or shoes in stores that you are dying to purchase?

Summer to Fall

I just love this image. It bridges Summer {pretty blue pillow & lots of light} with Fall {copper-colored pillow, fireplace, warm brown chair}.

This week, I'll be breaking out our Fall decor: pictures taken by me of the beautiful foliage in Annapolis, Maryland {taken a few years ago}, orange and brown candles, and lots of other pumpkiny goodness.

Oh, and I will also be watching my favorite "Fall" movies - Twilight and Eclipse! haha! They remind me of Fall because the husband gave me Twilight for my birthday last September, and New Moon came out last November. Don't judge me ;)

So, what is your sign that Fall is near?
{Mine is the crisp, evening air that gently brushes the leaves from the trees}

How will you be preparing for this new season?

Going Gray

Loving this article about using gray in decorating. It's my favorite neutral and I use it in every room in our home!

Some gray inspiration...

What is your go-to color?
