What's Your Style..Teacher Fashion Linky

Yesterday, as I was trying to do some research on things to buy for todays big TPT sale..I stumbled upon a blog and a SUPER fun linky party!!

Here are the guidelines...
1. Tell me your favorite store(s) that you like to get your "teacher's fashion".
2. What are some of your favorite accessories?
3. What type of shoes do you teach in? (i.e. heels, flats, wedges, etc.)
4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet? (i.e. sweater you wear weekly, shoes you wear daily, etc.)
5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school? (i.e. heel broke, button popped off of blouse)

1. I read through quite a bit of the blogs that linked up to Jessica and I think I may be one of the first or few (didn't see any others) whose favorite store is Forever 21!! They have SO MANY cute and trendy clothing items for such a cheap price. I can't go anywhere else and score as cute items for so cheap..I even think their items are cheaper than TJ Max. Other than Forever 21, the rest of my clothes comes from Macys or other little boutiques we have on our island. Eden in Love is one of my favorite boutiques to shop at and they just opened an online shop!!

2. I really like to match my clothes with necklaces but they always get tangled in my lanyard. I've finally given up on that look for school. My main accessory that I always have around my neck is my hello kitty lanyard. I also love to match my outfits with dangly earrings. 

3. I live in Hawaii, so I pretty much grew up either bare foot (hula dancer my whole life) OR with rubber slippers (flip flops). So pretty much every day of the week, you will find me in a pair of fancy slippers/flats that have lots of bling!!

4.Duh, like everybody else my go-to item is the faithful cardigan. You just can't go wrong with them. I too have them in all colors, styles, name it I have it. My brother's wife looked at all of my cardigans and was like OMG you don't need to buy any more cardigans for the rest of your life!
I also love to wear dresses to school and almost always pair a dress with a cute belt at my waist. Dresses are so simple because you don't need to match them with anything!!

This is actually one of my favorite belts...And I usually wear them exactly like this. I have a TON of belts...

5. I leave for school really early. I leave so early that it's still dark. I try not to turn on too many lights since the bf is still sleeping. Anyways, when I find a pair of sandals that are actually comfortable, I like to buy a lot because my feet hurt in almost everything. SO I had these wedge sandals in both brown and grey. I accidentally wore one of each pair! haha. The thing is is that I was so tired..I didn't notice until my kids came to school, it was bright and one of my students pointed it out!! We had a good laugh!  


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves Forever 21 for teaching clothes! You really can't beat their prices. Love your blog, I'm your newest follower! I just started my own,, if you'd like to check it out!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up! I love that dress that you posted! I need to buy some cute belts to accessorize my outfits. I have never really been a belt person but I see where it can make an outfit go from drab to fab!
