Well, it has been an insane week of back-to-school fun! Being a teacher in a new school is just like being a new kid at a school. You’re nervous and don’t know anyone and just want everyone to like you! My back to school outfit was the least of my worries! I hardly got any sleep, but the week went really well! I am REALLY happy to be back in the classroom and I just get PUMPED by the end of a lesson. So, praise God for small miracles! I made it through my first week and so far everything is great!
This is the back to school outfit I wore for the first day of school. I was really stumped because I typically recommend wearing something very formal on your first day back to school. It gives off a “I mean business” kind of vibe. But on our first day back to school at my school we had a barbecue on the quad! I thought, “Oh boy! I can’t wear heels because they’ll sink in the ground but I still want to dress professionally!” In the end I choose this outfit because it seemed professional but also somewhat picnic-style.
I bought these studded bow flats from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and absolutely love them. I love that they have a cushioned foot base and cute studded bows. They were a great pairing with my new gingham skirt. I’ve wanted a gingham skirt for a while now and this one is such a steal. It seems a little see-through in certain light but I actually didn’t have any problems with it. I got multiple compliments on that first day about my skirt. One of my students actually asked where I got it and I directed her to Shein! She’s now in love with the site!
Any other teachers out there? What would YOU wear to a back-to-school, first-day barbecue!?
