power shirt

*fit tip: if you border on the "petite" side of things, I would recommend ordering the petite size, these sleeves run long

Bag: Vera Bradley "big tote" ℅  (another solid teacher bag option! I adore the coated PVC, so durable & easy to keep clean!)

Shoes: old Sole Society wedges (similar to this current patent leather style from J.Crew Factory, also loving this espadrille style wedge)

To all my teacher friends who just survived their first week of school: WE DID IT!

It certainly feels great to be back to a productive work schedule, & my new batch of 7th graders are total rockstars!

I wore this super color-coordinated outfit to school this week (yes I wore these shoes all day.. well placed moleskin + wedges are my savior for wearing heels at work). This oversized white shirt is a recent purchase from J.Crew & to be honest I didn't 100% love it at right out of the box… mostly because it was slightly out of my wheelhouse. But once it was steamed, and on my body, I was thrilled with its fit & how it works with some of my other favorite work items.

The long length is the #1 thing about this shirt. The side vents, and polished cuffs are the runner-ups! 

*I was right in-between ordering a regular & a petite size, but ultimately decided to order the regular. The shoulders fit as I would like them, but I have to roll up the sleeves 1 cuff (or just not use my hands for the day…). So consider your arm length if you are between these sizes.
