I’ve worked in a variety of places since I was a teenager. First, I started off in retail and then dabbled around a little in the business world until finally settling into the profession that I love – teaching.
Recently, I started my first full-time teaching job and I absolutely love it. I get to interact with young minds everyday and help them grow to their full potential. But what I found out about fashion in the teaching world is that it gets slightly diminished due to comfort and other factors.
Even before this job as a substitute teacher, I fell into the rut of slumping down into my khaki pants and neutral flats. Giving up most of my style during that time. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
School is in session and today, I’m teaching chic.
My teacher style is one to be reckoned with and for today, I’m taking it to the next level with Marks and Spencer.
I found this amazing Per Una long sleeve historical blouse and paired it with a black and white pin-striped wide leg palazzo pant. The neutral black and white is great for a teacher who wants to stand out but doesn’t want to look like a well dressed student. The sophistication of the top and the pant are just what you need standing next to that blackboard.
When purchasing the pant, I had the option of ordering them in ‘short’ which is perfect for a petite woman like myself. The sizing gives me the option of being able to wear these pants with or without heels – without heels being great for a teacher since we spend most of our day walking around the classroom.
