A couple of you have tweeted me and asked what I wear to school and this outfit is an option. When I first started teaching, I remember being in a fitting room trying on a skirt that was above my knees (Shocker!) and my sister told me that she couldn’t believe that I would wear it to school. When I asked her why, she said it was because teachers were supposed to dress “frumpy.” Now thinking back on my elementary days, I remember teachers in big sweaters and slacks. Well, those days are long over-at least at my school they are! I wear what is age appropriate and comfortable but I have to admit that most days expect me to be wearing a cardigan and flats. 

Also-you may have noticed that I posted more pictures than usual in this post. I could not help it, they were making me laugh! Let me explain…when I looked at these pictures it reminded me of that scene in the movie Talladega Nights where Ricky Bobbi ( Will Ferrell) doesn’t quite know what to do with his hands while he is being interviewed. If you know that movie, go back up through these pictures and have a good laugh.

    I didn’t notice anything and then I read what you said and had a good laugh. You are too cute! One of the reasons why I like your blog is because you don’t take yourself seriously!

    p.s. Talladega is one of my fav movies!

    I also love my faux leather leggings and wear them all the time! I haven’t worn them to school yet though… I feel like they’re a little to sexy for me to wear there, though with this outfit they do look totally appropriate!

      Put on a long sweater and you can totally wear them to school:)
