What's Your Style? Teacher's Fashion Linky Party

Hey guys!! Since I've recently been offered 3.. (yippe!!!) substitute teaching positions... I've been thinking... now what do I need to wear? Of course I know I have tons of business casual clothes. And I think I have enough teacher friends and family to know what is appropriate or not for a teacher. But hey, I've also been in the medical field  for the past five years wearing scrubs daily. Do you think that I would give up an opportunity to go shopping?? Let me give you a hint... uh NO!!! Haha.

I've been searching online for some new trouser pants and dressy shirts that are season-less (is that a word?) and of course some cute dresses and skirts. And then I thought... (lightbulb) Why not just go to the experts?? And what better way to do it than a Linky Party?

I've been brainstorming on this idea for awhile now and since I'm fairly new to the blogging world... I was a little intimidated ok a LOT intimidated. I have seriously gone back and forth, back and forth about it and this morning I thought... "What is the worst that could happen?" Whatever... I can do this! So without further ado... here it is....

Here are the guidelines...
1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion".
2. What are some of your favorite accessories?
3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.)
4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.)
5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)

Please feel free to post any cute items, sales, outfits that you have grabbed for this upcoming school year!

1. My favorite stores are:




2. I have always LOVED accessories.. purses being my favorite. But right now my 2 favorites would be my Coach purse and Ralph Lauren sunglasses that my sweet hubby (love that man) bought for me.
This is it exactly... but VERY close

3. Since I technically haven't taught yet... I guess I can't really say for sure. I, however, have always been a lover of HEELS!! Like tall heels...
Aren't these gorgeous?? But I know that in reality I will be trading these in for something like this...
or better yet... something like these...

and I am okay with that (I'm sure my feet with thank me later)!! haha

4. My go-to item in my closet is my "Boyfriend" blazer that I purchased from Charlotte Russe.
Looks like these... but its just plain black

5. I haven't had any fashion uh-oh's as a teacher yet... but I remember my senior year of high school we had a bomb threat at our school and they made us evacuate to the football field for hours... in the HOT sun. Remember this is ALABAMA guys... it was HOT!! We were out there for at least 3 hours. I had on my favorite pink flip flops... yeah, well the ol' faithful flip flops let me down that day... because one of them broke!! The strap popped out of the side so I had to stand out there or sit  with a broken flip flop... not to mention walk all the way back to the school once we were able to go back in. Tragedy as a teenager in high school. 

It's tax free weekend here in Alabama starting tomorrow so I am hoping to find time to go and snatch up some stylish "teacher" fashion!!

What's your fashion? Grab the button and link up!

I have taught for over 10 years. It depends on who you are teaching. When I started teaching, I worked with the hearing impared. I sat on the floor, ALL the time out of our classroom. That made a huge difference in what I was willing to wear. I teach special education now, and still end up on the floor working with kids. I think it needs to look great, wear well, and be flexible. I have also had the next door teacher have runners, so tennis shoes are a most in our grouping. I hope this helps. Many blessings!

What a great idea for a linky party! I agree with Anita, we spend so much of our time on the floor working with kids (especially in the elementary) that we not only have to look cute but also have to be able to "get dirty" with the little ones. I have learned to bargain shop and wear certain clothes on days I know we will be getting a little messier!

I am proud to say this is my first linky party :)! Check out my blog http://techsentfrommyipad.blogspot.com/2012/08/my-first-linky-party.html.

1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion".

My favorite store is easy - Marshalls! I don't know if my Colorado Springs Marshalls is better than all the others, but I find that I am ALWAYS lucky there! I don't use credit cards, but I set one up there, only so that I could get $10 for every $200 I spend, and that is easy with a hubby, and 2 growing kids!

2. What are some of your favorite accessories?

I love necklaces and earrings and bracelets...but my go to item is earrings. It always makes you look dressed up even when your hair looks plain! I also love thin belts!

3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.)

While I occasionally use wedges...I prefer flats to teach in. I am short and of course some height would help...but I can't do it on the classroom floors that are both slippery and hard on your feet :(

4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.)

My go to item is anything that is navy blue, black, or red. I am trying to mix it up but I keep getting trapped on those 3 colors because I love them so!

5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)

Many - but usually have to do with my chest because I have large breasts (36DD) and it is hard to keep those puppies in at times. Fortunately...never in front of a student! :)
