During this back to school season I am partnering with Maurices to showcase 5 looks from their fall line. When I first started teaching I had two different wardrobes: clothes I taught in and then clothes I would wear on the weekends and outside of the classroom. I quickly realized that finding clothes that I could wear for any occasion (inside AND outside the classroom) that expressed my personal style was the more practical way to go. I needed to find places to shop, like @maurices, that have comfortable AND stylish pieces that don’t break the bank.
First Day of School Look
I am excited to share with you the perfect dress for a BACK TO SCHOOL LOOK. I always wear a dress the first day of school because I feel more dressy, it’s one piece and simple to style, and really comfortable!
Day to Night Look
Some Fridays there is the occasional happy hour with co-workers or a date night! I found the perfect outfit that can transition from day to night! I think the biggest factor in making this casual outfit ready for an evening activity is the faux leather jacket…it instantly elevates the look, but I can still wear something like this to work or to play!
Field Trip Look
When I go on a field trip my number one priority is comfort. In the past there have been times where I looked a little TOO comfortable, so by pairing a couple stylish AND comfortable pieces I am able to look a little more put together. 😉 For me- jeans and a tee are a must, along with a lightweight
On the Go Look
Normally after a full day of teaching I run one errand on the way home. There are the occasional days where multiple errands need to be run and I am darting all over the place before I finally make it home. The simple choice in wearing black jeggins makes me feel a little more dressed up compared to wearing regular jeans. This way if I am meeting a friend for coffee, or swinging by a couple stores I can feel excited about my outfit even if I was teaching the 7 hours before!
Parent Teacher Conferences Look
A full week of parent-teacher conferences are tiring, and by the 5th day of conferences I am drinking 5 cups of coffee before 5pm, lol! One thing that makes the day feel more approachable is by having an outfit that I can wear all day long. I used to bring a second outfit to change into after school, but I quickly realized that isn’t the most practical option. I look for something comfortable and classic that I can teach in all day and then still feel comfortable by the last conference of the day. I always lean towards dresses because I can move comfortably, and throw a jacket on to complete the look… but keep in mind, I DO change into heels for conferences!
