When we were little, my mom used to take Jess and I out for a fun-filled day of back-to-school shopping.
We'd wake up bright and early so we could be at the mall by the time it opened. While we waited for each store to roll up its gate, we'd sit at the mall bakery snacking on warm blueberry and cream cheese filled croissants and cold milk sipped through fun colored straws.
After a long day of shopping, we'd emerge from the mall with bags stuffed full of new Fall finds and have a late afternoon lunch at the park. These are some of my and Jess's favorite childhood memories.
So every fall before I begin the new semester, I try and treat myself to a few nice pieces. Here's what I got this year...
I just loved the detail on the neckline of this dress!
These shoes are perfect for teaching...super cute, but not too high so I can walk around campus comfortably.
Argyle is so very Fall!
I loved the fun (and familiar) black and white design of this dress!
Earrings are my favorite accessories! The more dangly the better, as far as I'm concerned.
This is one of my favorite sweaters. It's just perfect for those chilly late-Fall semester mornings.
I just got this new perfume at Disneyland when Jess and I went this weekend (lots of fun pictures to be posted soon!). It smells so light and feminine with hints of jasmine and orange blossom, and it's called "Dance," which I thought was fitting for the way teachers "dance" from subject to subject throughout the school year.
I hope you enjoyed our Fall fashion post! I want to end with a pretty painting my mom found a few years ago. Jess and I just loved it, and we all felt connected to a different fashionable woman in the portrait. Here "we" are! ( ;
Happy Fall Fashion!
