While we’re waiting for those consistently warmer days ahead, the weather loves to play fickle! One day it’s sunny and 60 degrees, the next day we’re shoveling snow. The unpredictability of the weather can make it difficult to switch your seasonal wardrobe, so we’ve come up with some outfit ideas that can take you from winter to spring with ease. See our winter to spring style inspiration below.

This ice blue shade is all the rage this season, so wear it from winter to spring and get the most out of this trendy piece. In winter, style it with faux leather pants, ankle boots, and a faux fur vest. In spring, pair it with jeans, white sneakers, and a pretty pearl headband.

This feminine floral skirt is a great piece no matter what the weather is. When it’s cold, wear it with a cozy sweater, warm socks, and knee-high boots. When the weather gets nicer, style it with a button down, lacy bralette, and sweet sweater-style mules.

Tweed is super chic right now, and this style is perfect for transitioning from bleak chilly days to breezy mild ones. Wear it with a turtleneck bodysuit, bootcut jeans, and tweed slingback pumps in winter; and with a satin cami, midi slip skirt, and nude slingback pumps in spring.

Many students are eagerly awaiting their teacher assignments for the upcoming school year. In my home, I don’t know who is anticipating the news more – myself or the kiddos! We already know who my youngest has and we love her, and my oldest is hoping for a particular teacher this year, and my middle daughter…well…I just don’t think that she cares very much yet! As parents are getting ready for BTS – shopping for clothes, shoes and supplies – don’t forget the teachers and school professionals! I love my kids’ school and the staff there, and since I’m a PTO board member I am very involved and get to interact with them a lot. I see a lot of what other parents don’t and these worker bees deserve it all! I am not swimming in the dough like Scrooge McDuck, but I give back to the teachers when I can. One way to show appreciation is with a back-to-school gift, and Kristy, who is also super involved at her kids’ schools, did some shopping at a few different retailers and came up with adorable and affordable teacher survival kits! See the gifts she put together below.

Temu! I’m sure you’ve heard about it and probably are hesitant like I was, but I’m telling you, it’s awesome! Just look at how adorable those canvas totes are as well as that pillowcase over the insert. These are perfect for a pre-k or kindergarten classroom.

Wood number pins can be found both at Target (usually comes out in July and can be found in their dollar bins) or on Amazon. These can be used in the classroom as decorations or a creative way to help learn math.

Both the pencil ID lanyard and mini hand sanitizers can be found at Bath & Body Works during one of their crazy sales, and they give the gift such a nice touch! Other fun lanyards can be found on Temu as well, so be sure to check them all out! Such a great add to the bags.

Who doesn’t love a good lip balm?! EOS has the best ones, keeping lips smooth and hydrated with amazing smelling, lip-smacking flavors. These are perfect little addition to a survival kit if you ask me.

I love a good planner and these planner stickers keep it fun and colorful, which can help keep you on track, especially when you’re a teacher on-the-go with a lot on your plate both in and out of the classroom.

If you’re in the Frugal and Thriving FB group, you already know about the ever-popular chenille letter bags, and of course these ones say “teach” so they’re perfect! These “Survival Kits” are so clever and definitely have the teachers in mind! Each TEACH bag is filled with:

As you can see, all of the thoughtful items included set the teacher up for a successful and fun school year, and it gives them a sense of comfort and appreciation while in the classroom!

Each of the canvas totes include the filled TEACH bags with these items as well:

All of these items were from the following retailers: Amazon, Bath & Body Works, Walmart, Target and Temu! If you haven’t checked out Temu yet, I highly recommend it! They are running a massive site-wide sale and it’s definitely a one-stop shopping option. PLUS, they also offer free shipping and free 90-days returns!
