Can you believe its December 3rd? That just seems crazy to me. We leave in 20 days to go to Florida and I couldn’t be more excited. We are spending Christmas this year in Florida with our families at my parents new vacation home (I was there in the summer remember?) This time Kev is coming and I can’t wait to spend an entire week together on vacation in a warm and beautiful place. Its not very often we get to spend that much time together when we both work full time.
OK, on to my outfit. I got this skirt at forever 21 a little while ago and its just so darn cute. I like it because it reminds me of a watercolor painting and because it was $12- you really can’t beat that price. Its a little short for school but I tried anyways- I paired it with some opaque black tights to make up for it. I loved the outfit but I get a little self-conscience when I see other teachers looking me up and down in the hallway, but hey I am 27 not 50 and I think I look nice.
I get a lot of questions about what teachers and students think of how I dress. There is no dress code so I can really wear whatever I feel like. I do wear jeans a lot but I am the art teacher and sometimes it just works out better for me that way. I ruin a lot of clothes at school. I try to mix it up a lot though- jeans one day, skirts or dresses the next.
Most teachers I think can appreciate that I am younger, that I am the art teacher and that I have a very strong creative side. Most of the time I get a lot of compliments from them and they are all so sweet. I am the youngest teacher here by a lot. Its really not a large group of young teachers here. There are def. some teachers who give me funny looks but I just try to look past it. The kids for the most part don’t care. They are in High School and well all they wear are AE, Hollister and Uggs. There are a few select girls this year that have really started to comment on my outfits though. They are very cute. They always want to know where I shop and what I like and stuff like that. I even got interviewed for the school newspaper on my style. hehe
I will say one time and one time only have I worn the same sweater as a girl in school. It was funny and a little embarrassing but hey- it was a cute sweater
