Teacher Fashion

I'm linking up with From Blood to Books for:

So here are the rules:
Here are the guidelines...
1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion".
2. What are some of your favorite accessories?
3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.)
4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.)
5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)

1. My favorite stores to purchase "teacher" clothes would have to be from Ricki's, Smart Set and Banana Republic.  I normally can be caught in black dress pants and they are almost always from Ricki's.  
I like to shop both Banana Republic and Smart Set for tops.  Recently, I also have become a fan of H&M for camisoles!

2.  Accessories: Well what can I say, I'm kinda a plain Jane type of girl.  For jewellery I wear a plain DKNY watch, a diamond pendant and my wedding ring.  I'm not really into scarfs and other accessories... however, I do love my Guess purses.  Every time I go to the states I always get a new one!
3.  Shoes:  At my old school we were only allowed to wear closed toe shoes with at least a strap around the heel.  I hardly ever wear heels to teach in (my feet kill at the end of the day if I do!).  I mostly wear flats in the classroom and sometimes boots in the winter.  I recently purchased a cute pair of TOMS ballet flats that I'm super excited to wear!
4.  Go-to-Item:  Anything black.  I feel most comfortable in black and I am often wearing it!
5. "Uh-oh" moment:  This past year I wore a white cotton cardigan to school.  While I was bringing paint from the art room to my class I go PURPLE paint dust on my left boob!  I tried my best to get it out at school, but all I did was make it worse.  It went from a spot the size of a dime to a spot the size of my fist!  It was horrible!

Make sure you check out what others are wearing!!!

  1. Thanks so much for linking up! I am still laughing at your uh oh moment! I cannot imagine what the kids said to you about your paint spot. I am not the most coordinated individual... with this being said... I try to stay away from the lighter colors... especially white (I think it really does have a magnet in it).
