So, I had plans for August, but school started for us about two weeks into August, and things have been Cra-zay around these parts. Which is why I've posted a total two outfits all month long Don't worry; I'm still getting dressed. No signing up for nudist colonies (because pretty clothes are too much fun!). Despite the whirlwind, I am excited for all the learning adventures we'll be having in my classroom.
I turned 30 this month and so had Grown Up Thoughts on that. But proved I'm still young at heart by celebrating The Wizard of Oz's movie release's anniversary all month long. I shared my thoughts on the film; found awesome Oz-themed stationery; got inspired by Dorothy's style; and even shared a favorite excerpt from another favorite Oz book. In case you couldn't tell, I'm kinda a huge nerd about Oz. If you're a nerd too (or know one), then these subscription boxes might be up your (or their!) alley. If clothes are more your thing, see what the subscription box Golden Tote is all about.
