Feeling Fancy

I’m a LuLaRoe Retailer and in LOVE with how LuLaRoe helps me think outside the box when getting ready for my day.

One of my favorite pieces to wear that is always on repeat is the LuLaRoe Cassie Skirt. It’s a pencil skirt that is good for every woman. You may have to play around with sizes to get your perfect fit but once you get it, you’ll wonder why you never wore a pencil skirt before.

Check out this gorgeous, navy-blue Cassie skirt  I love the textured material. Such a simple update to take a skirt from ho hum, to “ooooh, I love that skirt.”


Simple, textured, navy blue Cassie skirt paired with a floral Perfect Tee. Added my favorite summer sandals from Target for a polished and casual day at the library or with my girls.

I can tuck in my Perfect Tee into my Cassie skirt and wear the waistline underneath my rib cage because that’s what works for my body. A pair of heels makes my legs look like I work out a lot. (Shhhh, industry secret. Kidding.)

I love this Classic Tee tied in a knot on one side with my Cassie skirt.  I’m still wearing heels but I could have totally thrown on my flat sandals or even a pair of Converse for a fun, Saturday look.

So so many ways to rock a Cassie Skirt! You need one in your closet!

Come shop shop with me!



Summer Book List (or the books I didn’t get to read this summer)

I was the worst this summer! I made all these promises to myself of all these books I was going to read and then school started today and I hardly read any.

I did read Landline by Rainbow Rowell. It was worth it. And it made me smile. And sigh deeply with contentment.

I did read Pretty Ugly by Kirker Butler. It was wildly inappropriate and had me giggling uncontrollably.

I decided that I needed to read Paper Towns by John Green before I could see the movie. But I didn’t see the movie because I was disappointed with the ending.

Three books. I read three books this summer, people. Ridiculous! I am a school librarian!

But let’s talk about all the books I started the last 12 months and have not finished.

The list is long. It happens because I start to read a book. I put it down because something in life happens. And I forget to pick it up.

Here is an iPhone pic of all the books I should have finished 12 months ago.

Leaving Time by Jodi Piccoult. I made the mistake of attending book club before I finished this one and finding out the ending. No! I should power through and read it anyway.

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. I have heard nothing but great things about this book. And I really need to get past the first three chapters.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Don’t judge me. This wasn’t required reading material when I was in high school or college and I never had any interest in reading about the segregated south.

The Art of Work by Jeff Goins. It’s a self-help-you’re gonna do awesome things in life-book. And I am too tired to have an awesome life right now.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Wasn’t the movie already nominated for an Emmy? I think it might have won? I’ll get to it. I promise. (She said with her fingers crossed behind her back).

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. It is an award winner. And I read a 1/3 of it. Went to book club and then put it down.

The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. I mean, the premise of the story is there are two Wes Moore’s from the same city. One grew up in the ‘hood. And the other one didn’t. I will finish this book because this is the kind of topic that interests me.

The Immortal Life of Henriette Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Such a serious contribution she made to the medical world. This is another book club book. And book club is next week. So I better get to reading.

Unbroken by Larua Hillenbrand. I started it. Then lost interest because it’s a story about one man’s amazing, entire life. And right now. I just can’t. And, it’s a book club book from a few years ago. Maybe it’s not me, maybe it’s book club?

Not pictured is Harry Potter. I was never a fan. So weird. I know. Don’t hate me.

So this school year, no personal goals for reading. Just maybe a book every two months? That seems reasonable. After all, I do have a very busy toddler, along with my gorgeous tween daughters and my handsome husband in my life.


She loves the school library, too. (She loves making a mess in it.) I’ll post more pictures of the library in a few weeks. It’s my home away from home. I love it.
