to the point

Please pardon the tired teacher eyes, it is Science Fair season, & as excited as I might be about passing a love of science onto my students, I am as equally terrified about grading 120 individual projects.

After 6+ months into teaching, I am definitely finding myself putting on a "uniform" everyday. I have a signature print (polka-dots) that the students pointed out to me, & the other day a co-worker made an observation about the amount of blue that my daily outfits include. So I guess this outfit is as close to my teacher style as it gets. Flats for all day comfort, easy layers to battle the fickle radiators in our old historic building, & a skirt that is cute, but long enough to cover my caboose when I bend over to pick up something a child has dropped for the one millionth time. 

Have you ever come upon your "style" thanks to the observations of others?
{ What I wore to teach: J.Crew Factory Clare cardigan, polka dot button down, flared skirt // (ancient) Gap oxfords (shop similar here) // Kendra Scott necklace }


  1. When I was at University one of my lecturers always referred to me as "You in the blue". I always find it interesting when friends and family show me pieces of clothing they think I might like. It is always interesting to see what other perceive as 'my style'. Good luck with all the projects!

  2. Such an adorable color combo! I have the same skirt and love it :)

  3. Simple, but very cute outfit! I like your polka dots blouse !


  4. I love the bright colors! It is making me crave spring!

  5. I love this :) Those oxfords look so comfy!

  6. I love your teacher style! :) Polka and blue are two of my favorite things! I wish I could pull off oxfords though... I always feel like they make my short legs looks stumpy... oh well!


  7. Adorable blouse and cardie!




  8. Great color combo! You've inspired my own teacher look for tomorrow. I wish I had the legs to pull off oxfords like that. They look fantastic on you!

  9. I feel the same way, Shira! I really wish I had the legs for oxfords.

  10. I love the pink and polka dots



  11. Yes. A lot of people say I have a very retro or vintage style of dressing because I mix second-hand and vintage clothes with new ones and I have a sort of old-fashioned 1940's look. I also keep my clothes a long time, so no matter what I wear, it has that flavor.

  12. This outfit is just awesome! I love the blue and magenta together. That skirt is such a perfect length and style. Polka dots are so fun. They're a great signature print!


  13. Feel like our lives help structure our "uniforms" - even if we don't have a regular 9-5 kind of job.

  14. I love that you are wearing bold colors and polka dots! You look amazing.

  15. Really cute outfit! I love all these colors together!
