Hello lovelies!

The Life
How was your weekend? Mine was refreshing… (Friday was like TGIF!!!!)

In my last couple of posts, I mentioned that I have had a lot going on. About a month ago, I was hired to teach Freshman English classes at a local high school! As many of you know, in college, I majored in English and minored in Secondary Education. After college, I dabbled in the education world by tutoring and substitute teaching. However, for a while, there were not too many opportunities to teach English to high schoolers (and with an elementary schooler at home, I was unable to just pack up and move somewhere else). I suppose you could say I was discouraged, and I spent almost 3 years doing work outside of the education world.

Although not the most directly idealistic, after college, the years I spent “finding myself” were not wasted. Those years presented so much opportunity to learn about myself while continuing to learn and chase my passions. Back in 2012, I first started blogging. I had a blog called Classy Ever After (tips for classy ladies, hey! ha!), but after a year, I let that fizzle out. In the middle of 2013, a friend and I started another blog called Her & Hair (all about women empowerment and hair). She moved away and I kept up with that blog until I realized, in the couple of years I’d spent learning about blogging, social media marketing and so on, I’d never established a blog with a personal platform. In October of 2014, I launched All the Cute, and it has been a positive and rewarding experience.

While I am passionate about fashion and blogging, I am also passionate about so many other things, teaching being among them. Therefore, I am excited for this school year and excited to share this news. As a new teacher, there are a tremendous number of obligations and priorities that keep me working around the clock. I have no plan to stop blogging, but if you’ve noticed that I’ve been a little less active on here and my other social channels, well, now you know why! I am hoping that I can continue to post 1-2 times per week, and depending on how the near future goes, perhaps back to 2-3 times per week.

So keep visiting me… I appreciate the support as I keep on goal chasing.

The Look
My cardigan is from Express. I love it! I bought the same cardi in 4 of the color options. It’s so soft, and a fall essential, because it’s perfect for layering. I figured a neutrals for fall look would make for the perfect ensemble to kick off some autumn fashion here on All the Cute! Clearly, I’m cardigan obsessed. What fall styles and trends are you loving this season?

With Style & Love,



  1. Congratulations Amber… this is exciting, kudos to teaching high school children… that’s challenging. I have a great deal of respect for teachers. I’m sure you’ll do amazing ♡

    Have a great week xox

  2. Congrats on the job! I teach high school English too on the occasion. Love the neutral combo in this look- your kids are lucky to have such a stylish teacher!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your blogger beginnings! I feel like most bloggers start because they are at this point in life where they’re not quite sure what to do, so they think hey, why not?! That’s how I started too. And of course for a creative outlet (how can I forget that).

    I had a blog a few years ago as well that never really went anywhere so I stopped. Funny how that happens! It really is a learning process. Lovely look for fall, and excited to see what you have in store for us this fall/winter with fashion! :)


  4. Amber, your smile is to die for – beautiful! I love the accent of your nails along with all of the neutral tones of the outfit. Congratulations on your new teaching position! Don’t worry – anyone likes a young, fashionable teachers. You’ll do great! Keep us updated :)

    xx, rebecca

  5. Amber, I’m SO happy for you, congratulations on your new position! This is so encouraging to me and I’m sure all your other readers, too. It goes to show the perseverance and determination really do pay off in the long run, regardless if we’re not seeing the results right away. Though you searched for 3 years, now is your time and this position was sculpted out for you; how awesome is that!? I wish you nothing but the best and may this be the most rewarding year for you to start! I look forward to what you share with us in the future, but for now, just get adjusted. This is a huge change and it’ll of course take time to get into the groove of things. I have a few friends that are teachers ranging from elementary to college and it’s a lot of work. A lot of people look from the outside and think teachers have it made with the days off and hours, but they fail to realize that there’s SO much work and preparation that goes on behind the scenes. I hope you flow with creativity and that your students love you, I mean what’s not to love, you’re ALL the cute ;) Cheers, beautiful! Sending you a huge hug!



  6. Congrats on the new teaching gig! What a blessing. It’s so disappointing how many people aren’t even working in the field they went to school for these days, so what exactly is the “American Dream” really? On another note, I love this look you put together for fall:)

  7. Congrats on the new job! You must be super excited to finally teach again after so many years. I totally know what you mean by those years of “finding yourself”. I went through that too and I am glad I am finally getting somewhat really close to it :D
    Really beautiful post dear! I love cardigans too and I think these neutrals are really perfect for Fall. Thank you a lot for your last comment on my blog : )
    Sending much love!

  8. Congrats on the new job, that sounds very exciting! Have you ever thought about creating an e-course to offer on your blog or independently (not related to your blog). I’ve seen other bloggers who are teachers in real life transition those skills to their blog and enjoying it. Love your outfit by the way!

  9. Congratulations on the new job, that’s so exciting for you! :D

    I hope you do manage to keep up with blogging bt definitely don’t put too much pressure on yourself, especially in the early days as you adjust :)

    That looks like such a great cardi too – I can see why you bought it in different colours :)

    Away From The Blue Blog

  10. First of all, I love the look; and second, continue blogging! My blogging life wasn’t also an easy one. I’ve went on a hiatus before because of stress (I used to write for a living and then even write on my blog soooo ugh) and I’m glad that I’m kind of on track again now. :)
