Today is the first day of school! I can’t believe this is my 4th year of teaching 1st grade! I also can’t believe that summer vacation is officially over…where does the time go?
My goal for this year is to share more of my work looks with you. My plan is to share at least 1 look every two weeks under the title Classroom Style.
Today’s look is my first day of school outfit. One thing I love about teaching is that I get to go back to school shopping every year. Growing up I looked forward to BTS shopping everyyyy year. I loved picking out my first day of school outfit and surprise, surprise, still do! I love stocking up on easy dresses for this time of year, when it’s still too hot to wear pants. The moment I saw this one, I knew it would be the perfect 1st day dress. I love the floral print, flowy sleeves and ruffle hem!
I bought these mules during the Nordstrom Sale after I wore my first pair to work all spring! These are the BEST shoes for the classroom as they are so comfortable and go with everything! I’m still undecided if I will wear these today or opt for a pair of espadrille sandals…there isn’t much time left to wear sandals!
Yesterday was the first day of school for the 2016-2017 school year!
I had a great day getting to know my kiddos. I have the sweetest group of first graders and I am so excited to spend the year with them!
This is what I wore for the first day! I didn’t think about the fact that wearing white jeans and 22 little firsties might not be the best combo, but I am happy to report my white jeans survived the day!
This top is one of my favorite recent purchases! I love the floral print and the sweet peplum hem. It’s one of those perfect transition pieces that can be worn now, and in the colder months with a sweater, black pants and boots!
School has officially started hence the lack of posts around these parts! It was a busy few days getting my classroom ready, and I spent a lot of hours making sure things were ready to go. All of you teachers know that no matter how much time you spend in the classroom it really is never enough!! Wednesday the 2nd was the official first day, and it was a good one! I forgot how little the first graders are when they start compared to how much they grow by the end of the year! It will take me some time getting back in to the swing of working full time and blogging while I find a balance that works, so thanks ahead of time for being patient with me!
This mixed prints combo was what I wore the first day of school, plus a denim jacket over to top it off as it was a little chillier than expected. Would you believe me if I told you this outfit (top and bottom) was under $25? I headed to Old Navy recently to pick up a few new things for school and this top and skirt immediately jumped out at me! I love easy to wear pieces, and the mixed prints adds a fun element. This top was $11 and the skirt was just $10. These are pieces I can mix into my teaching wardrobe all year long! Head in to Old Navy asap for the labor day sales! I promise you will find a steal of a deal or two!

This week’s blogger of the week from last week’s link up is Amanda Miller of The Miller Affect! Fall is just around the corner, and I have been so drawn to deep reds that Amanda’s little maroon dress totally fits the bill! I can’t get over the lace detailing and deep v-neck. Paired with some leopard pumps and a perfect clutch, Amanda is absolutely killing it! I can’t wait to re-create this look this fall!
