Photo Dump & Teacher Fashion Linky

Hello! I am anxiously waiting for my principal to call us back to return on the 13th to sign the contract, do some in-service conferences, and set up my classroom! In the meantime, I have been busy making charts, decorating bins, and putting contact paper on everything (I like to use contact paper on small things since it's matte). Anyways, here's what I've been up to..

I'm linking up withFrom Blood to Books linky party about my fashion style in teaching. Now, before I landed my current teaching poisition, I was to wear business casual..Now I have a uniform! Yup, you heard that right! I kind of like wearing a uniform because I don't have to decide on what to wear..I wear a white button down shirt, navy slack, and navy flats/black flats with a small pin of my school on my shirt. What is your thoughts on a teacher uniform? Anyway on to the party...

Here are the guidelines...

1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion". I like to shop at Gap, LOFT, Old Navy, and Macy*s for my tops and bottoms.

2. What are some of your favorite accessories? I'm ALL about accessorizing! I like to wear different jewelry everyday. For playground time, I like to wear my sunglasses to protect my peeps :)

3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.) I generally wear ballet flats because they are so darn comfortable! My favorites are from Born Concept purchased at either Macy*s or Nordstrom..The price might be a bit steep, but I wear them everyday. Previously I used to wear the foldable ballet flats from Gap (the ones that have a little baggie)

4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.) Usually I wear the same flats everyday and my go to sweaters/cardigans are from LOFT

5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)
I had button come off my pants one day! I just simply put on my cardigan for the cover up ;)

Have a great Thursday everyone!


  1. Thanks for Linking up!I can't believe you have to wear a uniform.. that is definitely different! Guess it's easy breezy though.. especially for someone like me who changes a million times.

    From Blood to Books!

    1. Yeah it really helps me out because I'm indecisive too :)

  2. Love all the cute things you have come up with for your classroom. I so wish I were working as hard as you! I especially love your math poster showing the ten frame and I think I am going to copy it!
