Summer Shopping: Chevron Love

I am linking up with lovely Kristen @ Ladybug's Teacher Files to share my Summer Shopping in June :)
As you all know, I am looooving all things chevron, so besides remaking a lot of my room signs, I am drooling over all of the loveliness that is available online.

I tried to make a cute Mod Podge clipboard for Tara's Monday Made-It, but I think the key with Mod Podge is patience, which I am desperately lacking, so after tossing my warped clipboard with wrinkled paper in the trash, I hopped onto Etsy to save the day.


I am so in love with this clipboard :)

The store I bought it from is called Sassy Alice and they have tons and tons of options- I mixed-and-matched elements from things all over their store and their reply was "No problem!"

Even better, they sent me a proof of my order and I could adjust any or all of it before they made it. And it came lickety-split after it was all finalized!

I am so excited to use it next year instead of the boring old brown ones the kids use :)

A completely non-teacher-related purchase I am loving is my new chevron clutch from beso handbags- it's coming in the mail soon, but I already know we will be BFFs!
Johanna's bags are the bestest (I think this makes #4 or #5 for me- I may have a problem!) and I always get tons of compliments since they are so unique!

What have you all been purchasing this summer? Head over to Ladybug's Teacher Files to share!


  1. Love the handbag. I am going to have to check them out.


  2. Thanks for the kudos on the clipboard!!! We love making custom items! Enjoy!!!

  3. Oh my, I was planning on covering my clipboards this summer. Thanks for the backup plan.


  4. oh my, that bag is so pretty!!! I adore that clipboard too--that's so cool how you can mix and match it! I'm not good with Modge Podge at all...probably because I also am lacking patience, ha! Thanks for linking up my friend!

  5. That bag is to die for. I think I just may have to snag me one today . . . just waiting for the hubs to head to work :) Loved reading your shopping post.
