I had to double-check that I hadn’t already posted this amazing dress I thrifted while in New Orleans in June.  I’ve been wearing it nonstop on the weekends because it’s so comfy and doesn’t cling in this heat!

Funny story–mom and I went to Buffalo Exchange  in New Orleans when we visited in June and found so many cute and–might I add–“fruity” themed pieces only to find out that Reese Witherspoon herself was seen shopping in that exact store the day before!  As I checked out at the counter with my fruit-filled purchases, the girl excitedly told me that Reese had purchased a pineapple necklace with her daughter the day before and that she was staying in New Orleans (apparently her hometown) for the duration of the filming of her new movie, “Don’t Mess With Texas”.

Unfortunately, we were not able to see Reese, but we did have another “almost” celebrity encounter the very next day. We were at the mall at the end of the Canal Street having a beignet at Cafe Du Monde when we found out that Arnold Schwarzenegger was just sitting at the table next to us about ten minutes before we arrived. Talk about bad timing! Either way, we had a blast and it was nice to spend time exploring a new city with my family.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! 🙂

This look reminds me of a Starburst.  I know it’s a bit crazy, but that’s what I like–all the fun colors– it almost looks like fireworks! In order to keep the mixed prints and colors center stage, I went with neutral accessories like these nude patent leather bow flats and crystal statement necklace.

Today was the first day of school and pretty hectic.  I’m happy to be working with such a strong and supportive team; I think it’s going to be an amazing year! To all the other teachers out there, I hope the start to your year goes smoothly 🙂
