Cheers to having the day off from work and to my first Friday #teacherootd round up! This week I technically only had 3 days of work this week but that didn't stop me from capitalizing on some down time in my classroom and spending some much needed teacher bestie time with my former co-teacher-- the general ed to my special ed!
Shortly after I was involuntarily transferred, my co-teacher voluntarily transferred to the elementary school right down the street from mine. It was pretty crazy-- we both went from 6th grade teachers to 4th grade teachers in the blink of an eye. She had previously taught at an elementary school where a possible involuntarily transfer situation was going to go down and she was brave enough to volunteer, which landed her at the middle school we worked at. In the midst of watching myself swap places with Miley Cyrus in her Wrecking Ball video, my still-technically-co-teacher told me about her experience 7 years prior. She then told me she some how ended up exactly where she needed to be and that I don't see it now and maybe won't for a while, but maybe the place I'm going is exactly where I'm needed. She was right. So I just wanted to pass along some of the best advice I had ever gotten and actually listened to while in the middle of my MTV debut-- whatever is happening in your classroom or in your life, you might not see it now, and you might not see it for a while, but maybe the place you're going is exactly the place you need to be. 5,4,3,2,1 thank you for keeping quiet voices during my moment of reflection... we will now be transitioning to my teacher outfits! Outfits + Sizing Details + Other Styling Ideas = BELOW!
Featured Teacher Staple: Chenille pull-over is a fall closet sample that can be casually rocked on a Monday or glammin' on a Tuesday. It's currently on-sale at Target. I'm wearing an x-small!
--->Dress it up: Throw this sweater over a fall button down,add a pair of textured jogger , and pair of block heeled pumps!
Featured Teacher Staple: These Crepe joggers felt as if I was wearing pajamas at work. I instantly felt slightly more sophisticated which left me feeling confused because I usually associate sophisticated with uncomfortable... I can't wait to wear these all season!
--->Dress it down: Trade in the blouse for your favorite teacher-tee, layer on a jean jacket, and throw on some chucks to turn the dress code down a notch!
Featured Teacher Staple: I'm slightly Scrunch Tall Boot obsessed. These boots have the perfect amount of room for thick wool socks and a tasteful heel. I'm blown away that these boots are under $50! Target is totally missing out on money!
--->Dress it down: pair these rockstar boots with a pair of rockstar dark denim and tunic sweater for a more casual look!
