What I Wore to Work and then some

by - September 18, 2015

Oh, it's been a week.
I'm happy to report that I'm back to feeling 100% comfortable in the classroom; I love my students already and even look forward to spending my two hours with them.  I teach Christian Ethics 30 (in French) in 2nd and French 20 in third.  That means I'm done at noon and have plenty of lovely afternoons with Lucia or lovely afternoons with yours truly.
Maybe a 'Day in my life' post should be in order next week.

The part of this week that is still leaving my overwhelmed is the prep.  Two classes that I haven't taught in awhile leaves me only half a step ahead of my students, and that doesn't make me feel good. Hopefully things will calm down.

But hey, the other thing I love about being back in the classroom? Dressing for it!
Here's what I wore this week.  Note, there are 5 different looks.  All of them, except one, is from Alison's Work Wear Challenge.  Can you guess the Deena created look? She had a blue oxford paired with a bright pants and I don't do blue oxfords, so I got crafty.  ALSO? I haven't worn the same pair of shoes yet to school.  New life goal: see how long I can go without a repeat.
Anyway, back to the looks of le week:

I need a new photo place, the lighting is getting dark here.  This is a new top from Anthropologie (check out the back!) paired with denim wide leg trousers (Loft-old) and cork nude pumps (Nine West, old)

I'm happy to report that some of my students got and appreciated this tee...I wish more did


Lucy and I had a girls' afternoon at the mall and she picked her own outfit which was similar to the one I was wearing and then insisted she carry Toto and Toothless around in their basket.

We then hit up a park where she practiced her skillz.

And then I made her take a picture with me.  Side note, that bag is the one Christy made me buy on the girls' trip at Michael Kors. I LOVE it.  Thanks for being pushy, bestie.

Cozy Cozy for a rainy day.

Black on Black with a pop of colour and some leopard.  Loved this outfit!
That's it, that's all!  Next week marks the end of the work wear challenge and then the fall one will be up and running.  I plan on continuing my outfit posts, mostly because I want to prove to hubby that I wear everything but also because girl needs to keep track of the shoes.
Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. I made you... twisted your rubber arm maybe! Looks great on you. I've been wearing mine solid since I got as well. Seeing you in the white makes me think I should invest in a white bag as well. I love the last outfit - so traditional that I may forget to go back to the basics every so often. And everything looks great with leather shoes.

  2. I can't pick a favorite outfit, and I really dislike when we lose the lighting in the spot that we like to take pictures, boo! Still loving that skirt and I can't wait to read your month in numbers next month for how many days you went not wearing the same shoes...yep that was me daring you to do it :)

    Also, I'm coveting all of your outfits.
    I LOVE your graphic tees, I can never find ones i like... next time I need to online shop, I'm going to just make you fill a basket for me and I'll buy whatever you say.

Glad you are feeling good about being in the classroom....us part time teachers really have the best of both worlds. I'd miss the students if I didn't see them on my 2x a week!! Happy weekend!

  10. Smokin' hot tamale in that last outfit, girlfriend! Hubba hubba! I need that graphic tee, too. I am afraid no one would get it around here but maybe I could "learn" them a thing or two.
