Then we headed over to Ross on Randolph and had first looks at the new location.

It was such a fun evening and I had a lot of fun hunting for the perfect finds. I picked up this distressed Puma sweatshirt and these fun Guess leopard/sparkly slip on sneakers each for $24.99. Can you believe those deals?! Every week they get new shipments, so I can’t to see what I find next time I go!

To celebrate their new location Ross and I have teamed up for a giveaway (enter below). One lucky winner will win a $25 gift card. Good luck and happy shopping!

Runway Story

runway_storyrunway_story runway_storyrunway_storyrunway_storyToday begins a new runway story as today ends my summer break and a new school year begins. My students don’t come until Tuesday, but the next few days I’ll be prepping for this academic year.

It’s a bit bittersweet starting work again because although I love a new agenda book and sharp #2 pencils, I definitely will miss summer. It’ll be nice to be on a schedule again, but that just means that weekends and breaks will be more treasured than usual. I definitely will be busy this year with teaching 6, 7 and 8th grade reading, coaching two sports and being a young author’s coordinator.

I’m not looking forward to the 5 a.m. wakeup calls and my hour plus commute, but it’s definitely worth it when I see smiles on my students’ faces.

Paris Is Burning

parisisburningparisisburning parisisburningparisisburningparisisburningA crop top plus a Paris Is Burning reference equals pure genius. Well played Madison & Berkeley, well played. Based on the last couple of posts and my clear obsession with crop tops, let’s just say this is one of my favorite tops. It is a bit riskier than Monday’s top, but like I said, when you feel comfortable about a crop then go all out. With a statement top like this, I kept the rest of the look basic black, but definitely kept the party going with both arm and neck soirées.
