If you didn’t know, I’m an elementary special education teacher. I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything! I’m now back to work after a truly amazing summer and working on getting back into my routine for teaching. Last Thursday was our official first day of school with students. Even as a teacher I still get excited and nervous for the first. I also love to carefully pick out my first day of school outfit. I’m sharing that outfit with you in this post!
I absolutely loved my first day of school outfit this year! I actually got this dress from Francesca’s Collections a few years back and hadn’t really worn it much. I think I sort of forgot about it! I’m glad I discovered it again though. It’s such a pretty dress with the beautiful lace detailing. I really like the teal color of it as well. I ended up wearing this dress with black leggings because it was a pretty chilly day. I debated wearing tights instead, but in the end I decided that leggings would be warmer and more comfortable.
I decided to wear my new Blondo booties that I scored during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer to finish off the look. I liked these booties so much that I got them in black as well. They are suede, but the feature that caught my eye is that they are waterproof. With where I live, I thought this would be really useful! As far as jewelry goes, I decided to keep it simple. The only jewelry I wore was my HRH choker. I love wearing this delicate choker. When I don’t feel like wearing a statement necklace, my monogram, or a long necklace, this choker still adds a little something to my outfit.
If you’re a teacher or student, I hope you’re having a great start to your school year! I would love for you to share your first day of school outfits with me in the comments below!
