Friday Fashion Crush: Mules

Hi Friends!

Most of you have probably noticed that mules are becoming a hot new trend for fall. I have already invested in two different kinds for fall (you can find them here, and here) and cannot wait to break them out. I think mules are a great transitional piece to have in your wardrobe for fall because they look like cooler weather, but since they are backless, they feel more like summer...a great thing for those of us who are not quite ready to give up our favorite summer sandals. Below, I have shared some of my favorite ways to style mules. Black, leopard and tweed mules are a few of my favorite styles!

AUrate New York Summer Must-Have Collection

Hi Friends!

I was recently introduced to the jewelry brand, AUrate New York. It is a relatively new jewelry line, launched in 2015, that is dedicated to creating quality jewelry at an affordable price point. One thing I really admire about AUrate is that for every piece of jewelry that is sold, they donate a book to an underprivileged child. I am going to give you a sneak peak at some of my favorite pieces from their newest line, which is being released today!






My favorite pieces from their newest collection were the diamond bezel line (pictured above). I love the simplicity of the solitaire with the gold chain. On a day to day basis, I like to keep my jewelry at a minimum and these pieces achieve that look, but also have a clean line elegance to them. I would pair this collection with my favorite Tippi sweater, jeans or slacks and some adorable tweed mules for a sophisticated yet stream-lined fall look. 



For an easy, yet elegant, date night look, I would pair their long gold bar necklace with a flattering v-neck dress and high heels. This outfit will look like a million bucks, but at a much more affordable price. 



For those of us who are a little more daring, this cuff earring with diamonds would be great with super skinny jeans and a fun, flirty top for a girls night out. 

I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peak of AUrate New York's newest line of beautiful jewelry!

Even though I am no longer a student preparing for the first day of school, I am a teacher who gets equally excited about purchasing new school supplies and figuring out the perfect first day of school outfit. Back-to-school shopping is something that I have always enjoyed and will continue to enjoy for years to come! Below are some of my top picks for back-to-school whether you are a student or a teacher!
