Since school is now in full swing, I wanted to do some posts centered around just that. I would much rather be networking and meeting some of my favorite fashion bloggers at this weeks IFB Conference but since I have been called upon to do other things with my life, I am stuck here....trying to make it through the first week of school without feeling green.
I have come into contact with my fair share of teacher, professors, instructors, liaisons, and faculty members throughout my life and well....a majority of them have been 'frump dumps' to say the least. Sure teachers have a pretty boring dress code....sure researchers say that teachers should wear muted colors so as to not interrupt the brain waves of the little ones...sure teachers may be up on their feet for the better part of the day; maybe even chasing a few students down the hallway, sitting on a concrete floor, or jumping in to play with the children during recess. But by no means (and I DO mean that literally) does that suggest the fact that teachers should look like they are preparing to partake in a day of yard sale shopping. Nor does it suggest that all of today's style rules should be thrown out of the window with the cat litter.
It's very easy to stay within the lines of the 'dress code' and remain stylish:
**AC-CESS-OR-IZE-without going overboard, you can add colorful broaches, rings, and bracelets up into the mix
**Mixy, matchy-spruce up everyday items such as cardigans, pencil skirts, and LBD's with statement necklaces, scarves, cinched belts, or minute pops of bold color
**Layers on layers on layers-pair high waisted flared trousers with a stylish tank and a cardigan...you can even throw on a boyfriend blazer to really top it off. Then you can peel off layers as needed
**Less is MORE-if you must go for muted colors, at least make sure that the details are worth an honorable mention
|I love this simple, yet effective detailing...|
What was your perception of your grade school teacher?
Better yet, if you have children, what is your perception of their teacher?
How about your college professors?
