Today I wore a pretty monochromatic look. Usually, I would add a pop of color with my belt or necklace, but I was in a rush, and this is what came together. I am also wearing my old teacher clothes most of this week.
For those of you that don’t know, I used to be an English teacher before I became a wardrobe consultant. The English teacher who replaced me left my old school the second day of school, so I am up at my old school subbing until they can find a replacement. I have to admit, being up there makes me miss teaching. I know what I am doing now is best for me, but I still miss it.
I used to always feel like my teacher clothes were not really “me”. There are some bloggers out there who are teachers and seem to wear what they want. I used to work (and am working this week) at a pretty conservative school, so my wardrobe had to reflect that. Now that I can wear whatever I want on most days, I miss some of my teaching clothes a bit. It is fun to pull out some of them and give them life again. Do you like your work clothes? Or have you had a job change and you miss your old work clothes?
I am wearing a Banana Republic dress, Forever 21 necklace, a ring bought on Gilt (can’t remember the brand), and Chinese Laundry shoes.
