NEA $1000 Makeover Sweepstakes!

This post was sponsored by NEA Member Benefits, but all opinions are my own. 

Teaching friends,  I’m sure that majority of you reading are familiar with or likely a member of NEA, National Educators Association. What you may not know is that May is NEA Member Appreciation Month, yay! In celebration of hard working educators, NEA Member Benefits is offering members special discounts, gifts, work wear tips, and a chance to win a $1,000 fashion makeover.

What is that you say?! $1,000 for work clothes? Where do I sign up?

Right here! 😉 One lucky member will receive $1,000 in Visa GiftCard to spend towards their style makeover, and 25 others will receive $100. How cool! Members are able to enter the sweepstakes once a day until May 31. If you’re trying to remember if you are an NEA member or not, you likely are. Local and state education associations are linked to NEA. Creating an NEA Member Benefits log in takes one minute, so be sure to sign up/log in to register.

NEAMB also gave three teachers a style makeover with the help of a fashion expert. With some simple tips, these educators were able to boost their confidence and transform their work wear. Seriously, a few staple items can really make a huge difference! Check out the three style makeovers and see how these teachers incorporated style tips to rock the classroom runway, and how you can too!

One of the tips style expert, Rosanna Vollmerhausen recommended was incorporating patterns into your outfit. She advised blending patterns with contrasting neutrals to add interest to your look without being overwhelming. Some classic prints that I often wear are camo, floral, and of course, stripes! Here’s how I incorporated Rosanna’s tip into my #ootd today.

Linked are some of my favorite prints, the first few are work inspired. And course I also had to share some fun summer patterns since we are so close to break! Hope all of you teachers have a great end to your school year.

Don’t forget to sign up for the NEA Member Sweepstakes daily until May 31st!

Summer Count Down

Hello all! I can’t believe it, but my school has only 17 days left in our year. Eeeek! I am most looking forward to blogging (or at least attempting to) this summer. I have some major life changes happening, and I can’t wait to share with you soon!

Here’s a fun outfit from today. Our weather today was unreal! I found this adorable Lucky Jean vest from TJ Maxx this weekend, and I apologize in advance if you see it in every post for the rest of the week. The exact vest wasn’t available online, but here’s a similar one from Madewell. Also, I recently picked up these shoes from Nordstrom and they are comfy enough to teach in and wear on a Monday (I have PE and we get out at 1:20 on Monday’s ;)!)

Also, with break just 17 school days away, I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer shoes with you! Some I own and you may have seen in Insta posts, others are on my wish list!
