Hey all! Welcome to my weekly style post!   Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join other bloggers around blog land who do the same. These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion. I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways. I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.  As a middle school counselor, I am always looking for inspiration, and ways to be stylish, professional, and age appropriate, and I hope to provide that same inspiration to other women and mothers in similar professions or lifestyles.

I was finally able to get out a few of my Spring/summer clothes over this past weekend.  And I also went shopping and bought some clothes for Spring, which I am going to share with you today!  This outfit was what I wore on casual Friday Thursday last week.  I was off for a mini Spring break on Thursday and Monday.  The plaid button down is a new item I purchased for Spring a few weeks ago.  These white jeans are boot cut, but I pegged them and rolled them up.

This is what I wore on Easter Sunday, to church.  I bought this striped maxi skirt a year or so ago at either TJ Maxx or Marshall’s, so I can’t give you a link to it.

Here is a quick picture of our whole family on Easter Sunday. 


I was inspired to put this together by this Pin, minus the hat and high heels.  I don’t do high heels too much anymore at work.  I have to stand way too much for that.

I went Spring shopping on Good Friday, and I think I did pretty good!  I used my 16 Spring fashion must haves to create my shopping list, and I really tried to stick to the list.  I also had a shopping budget of $500.  This is the second shopping season where I have really went shopping with a specific list of things I was looking for.  I used to go shopping and buy “outfits”.  Now, I try to buy basic types of things that can be mixed and matched with things that I already own.  Here are a few pictures of what I bought, and I am sure you will be seeing these things pop up in upcoming style posts.  The stores I shopped at for these items were TJ Maxx, Gap, Forever 21, American Eagle, Target, Hollister, and the Shoe Department.  There is a denim vest peeking out from under the scarf, and under the blue plaid shirt is a white button down.  I also purchased a couple of dresses a few weeks ago from Old Navy that are not pictured here.

And these are the shoes I have purchased so far.  I wanted a pair of black Birkenstocks, but when I was in Shoe Department, I found these for $29.99 and I was sold.  They look almost exactly like Birks for a fraction of the price.  My daughter and my niece both bought a pair too!

And one last thing, this is not for Spring, but I scored this Cynthia Rowley tweed sweatshirt at a thrift store for $4!  I love the little zippers on each side and it is a perfect fit.  So definitely saving this for next Fall.
