Black and Nude





After a weekend of walking, Mall of America shopping, puddle jumping, and light rail riding, it’s so nice to sit down with a cup of hot chocolate, and think about everything that happened.

I often joke at work – I am Forever 21. Anytime someone asks me how old I am, I say I am forever 21, and I got some of the mom’s to adopt my way of thinking as well. It fascinates me that there are people out there, my age, with 2 kids already. But, I am forever 21. 

The apple print dress is Marc Jacobs. Being a teacher, it fit’s me perfectly. I shopped Forever 21 for accessories, and the hat is something I immediately fell in love with. And I feel like I will be able to wear it well through the fall. The boots are something I’ve been looking for since last fall. There is something sexy and feminine about a heavy black shoe with a chunky heel, and skin showing, don’t you think?

How was your weekend?

      Thank you Justine, I am so glad I broke my “shopping only thrifted” rule 🙂
