Favorite Friday

This dress may be my favorite deal I have ever gotten! I stalked this dress (yes actively stalked) for about 3 months. I did not want to pay $30 for it (what they were originally charging at TJ Maxx) because I wasn’t sure how often I would really get to wear it. However, I was patient (and lucky) and at the end of last summer this dress was on clearance! And the only one left was in my size Huzzah!

I especially like this dress because of the shape (I love me some full skirt) and the neckline (I like how high it is) AND the pattern. I mean seriously. This. Pattern. Is. Amazing! Whenever I wear this dress I just actively stare at it all day long. There are so many things to see! Unfortunately, this dress spent most of Friday under my academic robes.

We had a campus event on Friday for which we had to wear our full regalia. The purple shoes were still visible (which was fun because my school’s colors are purple and yellow) and they got a lot of attention, but the dress didn’t get to make an appearance until late afternoon. Still, I was glad I wore it because 1.) robes are hot and this dress is nice and cool and 2.) this dress has pockets so I tucked my phone and keys in them so I would not have to carry a purse over my robes (which I think looks tacky).

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

The Haute Professor


Just got the sandals and the purse today, I’ve been wanting a purse like that for so long and I found it at such a great price at T.J.Maxx. Some of my sandals are getting old, too, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some matching shoes! I’ve been eyeing some sandals like that for awhile, as well. I love that it’s all matchy-matchy, even with my iPhone.

summer dress

I ordered this dress from Asos last week and I’m in love. It’s the perfect swing dress – and shows off just enough skin. It’s lightweight though a tad transparent (I’m wearing this slip) and will likely be worn all summer both for work and play.

And yes, it’s a bit wrinkled. Have I ever told you all that I don’t iron? Ever? Well, here’s proof. The one domestic thing I will never do is iron.

[that was me putting my foot down]

Now, can we talk about these shoes please? 

Guys, my T.J.Maxx is the shit. Almost every time I set foot into that store I find something wonderful. These Rebecca Taylor shoes were my latest #maxxinista snag. And I’m in love with them (available on Amazon).

I scored this tan leather tote at #tjmaxx and I love that you can fit your entire life in it. It also includes a little clutch to keep things neat and organized. Plus, it can double as a diaper bag! #yes #momproblems #maxxinista / Encontre esta bolsa de piel en TJ Maxx y me gusta que cabe todo y tiene un bolsillo adentro para poner las cosas pequeñas. Además se puede usar como pañalera! Las que son mamás me podrán entender 😜
