Here is a recent teacher outfit, still counting on cardigans to get me through these chilly mornings, but I refuse to bring back out the tights - I don't care if we DID see snow flurries in Nashville last weekend!
This dress is from Of Mercer, a brand that I love for high quality work clothes. I already had 2 of their dresses, both featured in my Teacher Capsule Wardrobe (black dress worn here, here, here // windowpane dress worn here & here), & was excited to add this pretty number from their recent collection. Every item I have from Of Mercer is meticulously tailored so that the dress is not only flattering but also comfortable & fuss free! I've only worn their dresses before, but I am excited that they now offer blazers (including this one that matches my dress!) & accessories!

Holy moly me oh my - we are 3/4 of the way through the school year & I can't believe I have almost survived my 2nd year of teaching!
While currently on Spring Break this week, I am busy busy busy planning for a smooth 4th quarter & also applying for new jobs out West. Tyler & I have our sights set on Portland, Seattle or Denver, but we are allowing ourselves to just feel things out before we let our little hearts get committed to one city over another.
I have never actually applied for a job before - the teaching job I have right now literally fell into my lap - & I am so thankful for my co-workers that are helping guide me through this process & my school's administrators who promise they will provide me with glowing references ;)
We have been talking about this move for so long - as in a, "one day when we leave Nashville we will go _____________ and do ______________ " (filling in the blanks as new dreams popped up from time to time), but now that it is upon us & we have a final date (our lease ends the first week of June!) I don't even know where to start. I should probably be focusing on getting a job first, but for some reason the only thing I have done is made a list of all the places we MUST TRY in Nashville before moving! Just added Bastion & Old Glory to the list... the problem with the list is that it keeps getting longer!
Don't forget that this adorable Dagne Dover purse is on sale for 20% off until 4/1 (promo code HEREANDNOW20) & prepare yourself for lots of posts this week, I'm on Spring Break and plan to be blogging it up (gotta procrastinate the job search some way or another!)
