Hot mess express today! So, I’m walking out to leave the house this morning and I notice that I’m missing a button right at the top of my button up. I bend over and thank God I have a cami underneath because out pop the girls. Ridiculous! And not only that, but as I walk in to do my observations at school, I notice that I am missing yet another button at the bottom. Does this stop me? Unfortunately not. I was running late and let’s be honest–too tired and lazy to change the whole outfit. Annnnnddd…I kind of just wanted to wear these new Mary Janes!

I found these puppies at Marshalls this weekend and I knew I had found my holy grail. All I kept thinking was “I thought these were an urban shoe myth!” All you Sex and The City lovers are pickin’ up what I’m layin’ down. Gotta love a classic patent leather pump with a modest but sexy heel and a cute little strap that says “take me home to meet your parents!”

How do you guys feel about Mary Janes? ย Are you a fan?

So, I got to see my old students today. Went to observe my cooperating teacher for my Master’s class research thesis and I was pleasantly surprised by one of my students jumping out of a barrel and several hugs and brownies (I’m a sucker for treats). It was amazing getting to see my students from last year- I didn’t want to leave!

Anyways, enough about my whirlwind day. I have good news! Marshalls and I are teaming up to give you guys an opportunity to win a gift card to spend on your favorite items at your local Marshalls store. Five of my readers will have a chance to win a $25 gift card within the next week! I can’t wait to show you all of the fabulous things I picked up! Spring has SPRUNG! (Well, not weather-wise!)

    Love those khaki skimmer pants! Marshall’s is one of my favorite places to shop. Not just fashion for me but for my home too. Keeping my fingers crossed on the gift card! Spring weather is around the corner and my closet needs an up date!

    I love Mary Janes! I had a pair of Mary Jane Skechers in high school that I pretty much wore to every dressy event I could. They had a VELCRO strap, lol. And chunky heels. But hey, it was the 90’s!

    My BFF tells me all the time to ‘just say no’ to more Mary Janes, but I can’t get enough of them! I have them in different colors too. You look great and I am loving this look.
