August Purchases

Honestly, I've been too busy to do much shopping this month. It's probably a good thing.

Today was the funeral for one of my dearest childhood and high school friends, Shannon Peterson Sevison. She was a truly amazing person, and I feel privileged to know her. The funeral was like a mini-high school reunion, as many people came to honor Shannon and support her family. I hope there is basketball in heaven...

It seems a little silly to be blogging about outfits when a beautiful mom, sister, wife, daughter and friend has lost her valiant fight with breast cancer, but this simple little outfit here is what I wore to the funeral.

This isn't exactly casual Friday attire, but I'm even not sure that my new workplace has casual Friday since I pretty much missed the whole orientation due to my late hire. This outfit was very cute and comfortable on. I've had this white bubble necklace for almost three months, and I never wore it. Now I've worn it twice this week! I'm trying to shop my closet more and use what I have.

Today I went with the ever cute Raj Paisley Skirt and an oldie but goodie denim top. Comfortable jeweled flats and a blingy J. Crew Necklace added a touch of fun to the outfit. Today was also my DD's 27th birthday. Happy Birthday, Alison! You are the light of my life.

Today felt a little whimsical, so I went with the linen whale sweater from J. Crew.

Today was my first official day at work in my new job. I wore this outfit today for the seventh grade day, except that instead of the slides I actually wore blue plaid sneakers.

I hadn't worn this polka dot popover yet, so I tried it today with this simple navy skirt. This turned out pretty cute. The white bubble necklace kind of disappeared on the shirt, but overall it was a good look.

Today was my first day at work at my new job. I've moved to a local junior high school here in the district -- yeah, no more charter school!!! I wanted to wear something a little dressy but still very comfortable, so I went with this lace skirt from Talbots and my new Liberty Floral Eve shirt. Yes, I did get compliments on this outfit.

This is what I wore to an interview at Lakeridge Junior High School. I hope it was conservative enough. I've been wearing dark colors to interviews, but today I decided on a brighter palette. I thought the interview went well, but I know better than to get my hopes up.

I've been wanting to try these two pieces together for quite a while. I did like how these went together -- especially with the addition of the cute little bow belt from Talbots.

July Purchases

I'm particularly happy about getting the swimsuit for such a good price. If I had only had it for my vacation to Cedar City!
