summer loving

The regular school year is over for me and summer school starts on Tuesday. I am always excited to do something different than what I do during the regular year! I wanted to share some of these pretties I have been eying lately.

Michael Kors Watch (pic courtesy of Joy B :-))
I loveee this blazer, but unless the price comes down I might have to settle for the shirt. What would you do, splurge or settle for less?

teach by week to cowboy chic

I always find it interesting to see how bloggers live their lives outside of blogging. For me, I grew up in Dallas but moved to West Texas in college and have lived here almost ever since.
It was a major change of pace at first, but I've grown accustomed to and love the lifestyle here.
This weekend my husband and I went to see our lovely friends Kelley and Tyler and help with their annual branding.
So...by week I look like this.
[teacher clothes]
top: j.crew tissue
jeans: j.crew matchstick
shoes: loft
necklace: target
bracelets: chico's and gifted

[this weekend: cowboy chic]

tonight 2 of my nursing school buds and i are going to happy hour after work. 
We are meeting down in the Heights, which is a really cool part of Houston.
I'm excited to chat it up with my nurses (one is an ICU nurse and the other is an ER nurse, very smart ladies).
happy Thursday!

necklace: anthropologie

belt: H&M

my eyes needed a break away
from the 'ol contacts.
i don't think i ever want to get lasik
because i love my glasses that much.
that's kind of dumb though.
i could get lasik and still wear 
non-prescription glasses right?
a la taza?
ok, i've changed my own mind.
