1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion"
I love Kohl's. I really like the Apt. 9 pants (see below) because they look professional and hide my "muffin top" without making me feel like an old lady with my pants up to my chest!!! I love dresses, but rarely wear them to work. I'm always on the ground with the kids and dresses and skirts just aren't good for that!
I also like New York and Co. and Maurices for tops. We don't have a NY&C near me anymore, so I shop when I visit my mom. I only buy tops that don't need to be ironed or they just hang in my closet!
I just got this in blue from NY&C, I accidently stumbled on a 50% off everything sale. Woo Hoo!
2. What are some of your favorite accessories?
At work I usually wear my pearl drop earrings or my sapphire earrings from my husband. I'm not a morning person and I have kids... so pretty much it's a small miracle I get out the door each day, let alone accessorize!
I love necklaces, but we are required to wear our ID badges so I wear a beaded lanyard (similar to below) to fancy it up :-)
AND, I don't go anywhere without sunglasses! My eyes are really sensitive so this is where I don't cut corners. Here are my latest!
3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.)
Ok, ok, I know that Danskos are not super cute... but I LOVE them! They are so comfy and I do actually think they're kinda cute... they grow on you... really!
Here are my new ones for this year. I also have a black tooled pair that I love.
4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.)
I have lots of cardigan sets, so they are my "go to" items.
Here is a new one I got at NY&C (remember the sale!!!) It's even that color!
5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)
I think I'm probably a walking fashion uh-oh! I often have coffee spilled down the front of me. I can't hem pants and I must step on the back of them (I'm a whopping 5'3) because my hems fall out all the time! But for the most part nothing major... but if I ever do my hubby better come running - he owes me for the time his pants split in the butt when he bent over and I rushed over with a fresh (bigger size) for him :-)
This has been so much fun! I should be sleeping, but this is almost like shopping all over again :-)
