Jumper Dresses and Collared Shirts!

There is nothing that brightens my mood in the dark winter months (ahem, today!) than dynamic colors. Even if the wind chill is 3 degrees, it still makes me smile to put on my Lilly for Target collared shirt and a yellow J. Crew Factory jumper. The fit-and-flare style of this jumper is flattering on everyone!

My all-time favorite mug from Megan. "Bloggers gonna blog!"

My shirt (old, Lilly for Target): similar here in one of my all-time fave prints! Another fantastic option here.
My jumper (old, J. Crew Factory): similar here and here from Urban Outfitters ($30!).
My ruffle boot socks: here (thanks to my sweet mother-in-law!).
My green Hunters: here.
My Vera Bradley lunch bag (super old-- bought for my first day of student teaching in 2009! haha!): similar here.

This look has quickly become my signature, go-to "uniform". It's comfortable and appropriate for work, but it is still dressy. The options are endless with this pairing. I love to wear knee- high boots or Hunters with it during the winter (and fun boot socks!). During the warmer months, Jack Rogers sandals, Tory Burch Reva Flats or Toms peep-toe wedges are the perfect match.

My Goddaughter, Bryn, and me.

Those Tory Burch ballet flats are so striking in person!

My sister and another beautiful cuzzie, Rosie!

Sweet Bryn!

Similar jumper: here from Boden (on sale!) and here (for $20!) from Target.
Plaid shirt: similar here.
Tory Burch flats: here.

Even my sweet friend, Jackie, rocked this look over Thanksgiving break! How cute is she in the gray J. Crew Factory jumper and buffalo check shirt (below)? I LOVE her pairing! She was elated that the jumpers came in petite sizes, too!

All smiles in her darling get-up!

Love her look so much! 

Jackie and her fiance, Pete! Both are quite stylish teachers :) 
On Pete: similar here and here

Jackie's gray jumper: here (on sale!).
Jackie's buffalo plaid shirt: here in gingham (on sale!), and buffalo check version here, and in teal here.
Jackie's brown boots: similar here in "Whiskey".
Jackie's cream boot socks: a cozy cable knit version here.

I am absolutely in love with my navy and silver polka-dotted jumper. J. Crew Factory has since re-released this dress (mine is a few years old)-- yay! It's now on sale for less than $60! You will not regret this purchase. Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Polka Dot jumper: here and two other fab options here and (my fave) here from Mod Cloth.
Chambray shirt: here (on sale!).
Brown Frye boots: similar here.

I will always love my bestie, Megan, for defending my collared shirt and jumper look one Black Wednesday a few years ago in Ohio.  A girl at a local watering hole made fun of my outfit. But, alas, Megan came to my defense!  Hahaha! I don't mind when people don't "get" my style. That's why it's MINE! ;-) And I happen to like it! :-)
My BFF, Cheng, and me before my style was dissed. haha!
Being natch with Cheng. 

The coolest ornament ever from my good friend, Brit! Even though I am now MFM, I still hang this front and center on our tree!
Plaid shirt option: here on sale!
The jumper in red:  here.

Maria and me-- summer with the jumper and our Kate Spade handbags and Toms wedges! 

Summertime with my man and a different polka dot jumper option. Always ready to pair my jumpers with Toms wedges
