Noonday Jewelry

In late June, my husband’s aunt asked me to a jewelry party. Of course, I had the initial reaction that we all do when invited to one of those events. Once she explained to me a little about the company, I have to admit, I was curious. I went not thinking that anything would really be my style, but I was wrong. I could have easily have walked out her front door with one of everything. The pieces were so beautiful and comprised of materials not normally worn. Then I learned more in-depth stories about the pieces, where they came from, who made them, and about the company. Noonday is a company that sources from third world countries and helps provide jobs, healthcare, schooling, and homes for those they employ. All the materials used are particular from those areas and have a story behind them. To me, this means that this is not just a necklace or bangle, but so much more. I may be wearing this necklace to work, but by me doing so I am helping in providing healthcare to women battling HIV and AIDS. How cool is that!? Beautiful jewelry AND a true benefit, how can you pass that up? I highly suggest you all check them out (click the jewelry link for direct access to website).


Fall Wish List



I feel like this Fall, more so than others, I am craving cozy pieces to wear. Although style is still very important to me, comfort is a major player. It is no secret that I am someone who gravitates to neutral, classic pieces and this season I am sticking to my usual habits. I have rounded up my top 6 must have pieces for the fall. Now let’s see how many of these the husband lets me purchase 🙂

Exciting Changes

Hey Y’all! Oh how I’ve missed you!

As many have noticed, I took quite the little break from blogging. This was mainly because of a very busy summer and starting my new teaching career as a 4th grade teacher, which I am so excited about. As a result of all of this, I took some time to develop a new path for my blog. I have changed the name and some (SOME) of the content. I wanted a new name that reflected me a little better. Crow + Bone will forever hold a special place in my heart, but it was a tad bit too cool for school (see what I did there 😉 ). I feel as though The Haute Classroom fits perfectly with my career AND my love of fashion and design in both apparel and home décor. The only ways that the content is going to change is by adding a few classroom and teaching posts here and there. I know y’all will still enjoy it, if not more than before! I am so excited for the new changes and updates in my life and can’t wait to start sharing very soon! Stay tuned, until then I thought I would post some pictures of my classroom for the year.


Please excuse the wrinkles in the table skirt 🙂
