Show Us Your Life- FASHION TIPS



I have really enjoyed doing the SHOW US YOUR LIFE at Kelly's Korner, so I am now a second time participant...

I have just completed by first three weeks of teaching, and I feel that being a school teacher I need to dress appropriate, professional, and look nice. Within my education career, I have been told multiple times that students look up to you and respect you if you dress and act professional, and they REALLY do. Teachers need to stand OUT and not just blend in with the students. The district in which I work in allows their teachers to wear jeans ONLY on Fridays. I believe that is a FAIR and professional requirement. Some teachers take advantage of this Denim on Friday's and wear slobby hoodies or raggedy t-shirts. We have been told by our building administration that if we wear jeans on Fridays, we MUST dress them up. I am HUGE supporter in looking nice and professional at school. Here is my FIRST day photo...

I also am LOVING scarfs this season. I began collecting several scarfs last season...this may seem ridiculous but I wear one almost everyday!



I occasionally wear heals to school. I have learned that if I know that I will be on my FEET all day, NOT to wear them, if not I go for it when I can! I have always wanted to be 6 foot, don't get me wrong I AM 5'10 but have always wanted to be 6 foot. With those heals on, I AM 6 FOOT!!

I am also a fan of flats! I love wearing a cute pair to school and just out and about...

I teach and scarves have been the best thing ever. You can still look cute and wear them with several different shirts for a ton of looks.

Louisiana Bride, What grade do you teach? Yes, you can dress a scarf up or down! I LOVE THEM!

Congratulations on three weeks of teaching! I taught for six years before staying at home with my daughter, and I absolutely agree about the importance of professional dress as a teacher. I always kept a pair of flats in my classroom "just in case"!
