Mint and Polka Dots

Getting back in the groove of school has been a process. Every morning Grant cries for me to put my jammies back on when I'm dressed. I wish, buddy.  Every afternoon I'm having these "Oh no, what's for dinner moments."  Then, every evening I'm trying to catch up on blogs, relax, and hang out with my husband simultaneously.  Not easy.  Being at home is summer was such a treat!  I love teaching but those summers off are such a teaser!

  1. I love your polka dot skirt paired with the green blouse! I have a similar skirt I will have to try this color combo with. The necklace is perfect for it!

  2. Wow, I love this fresh look! The green tee looks perfect with polka dot skirt<3

  3. I hear ya! I work full time and I'm getting my MBA at night. It's tough to balance all that with life sometimes! I wish I had summers off, that would be wonderful!! You look beautiful as always.

  4. Another awesome outfit! What a great skirt.

    I can definitely relate to getting back into the swing of the things with school starting. We have had to adjust to the new school schedule, back to homework, back to getting lunches ready the night before, etc. etc.

  5. Summers off are such a teaser...I'm already anxious about going back! You look adorable!

  6. Love that cute polka dot skirt! I imagine it must be hard making time for everything now after having the summer off.

  10. I love how bright that mint shirt is!

  11. I was thinking that skirt looks really familiar and then I realized I have the yellow/tan version. It's just a lot shorter on me!

    Good luck getting back into the swing of things! I feel the same way and I didn't even have the summer off - just had a lot more going on!

  12. I can tell you are back to teaching because you are looking so Sharp & Professional. I love it every time you wear this Necklace and this Blouse. I am loving them together, for sure. =)

  13. I can only imagine, I get depressed going back to work after a vacation!! I love your skirt!

  19. I am IN LOVE with this outfit, you look amazing. I know what you mean about work, I actually just wrote a bit for my post tomorrow about trying to get back into the swing of things now that I'm back at work, and the kids haven't even come yet!

  20. Ugh getting back into the routine is so hard! I don't know I'd you do a weekly menu plan but it definitely helps with the "what's for dinner"!

  21. Great fresh look for back to school
    Hope you get into the groove of things soon
    What's for dinner is hard no matter what time of year it is. LOL

  22. You are such a color connoisseur! I love the combination of mint, black, and white.

    And I do not envy you teachers! The summers are great, but I'm sure they go way too fast for you!

  24. this really is a spectacular combination of color, I love it

  25. Love the mint color on you! The black & white go so nicely with it too.

  26. I LOVE this outfit!! Mint is so pretty but paired with polka dots..perfection.
    Hope you're having a great start to the school year!!


  27. I'm with you on having a hard time transitioning back into the school year routine...which is why I'm finally catching up on blogs (sorry for the 100 comments in a row, ha!). I had a little time yesterday so I was able to plan out some outfits and posts, which feels great. I really like your polka dot skirt - so cute!!
