Afternoon all! Can’t believe we are into our second week of the Work Your Work Wear Challenge with Alison Lumbatis. I really like all of the pieces on the shopping list and have liked each of the outfits, too. Liked them so much that I had to go find a job in order to have somewhere to wear these great ensembles.
Today I put on the Day 8 outfit and went to the two schools where I will be teaching art after school through the Young Rembrandts program. I felt polished in my printed pants and bright top, even a little colorful and artsy, too. Received a very nice compliment from one the parent liaisons I will be working with. I was thrilled to see children again! I am truly (nervously) looking forward to my new career. After graduating in December 1979 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a Bachelor’s of Science in Art Education. Here we are 35 years – THIRTY-FIVE YEARS – later and I am finally going to teach art!
Here are my outfits for the past few days. Hope they inspire you to try a new take on one of your favorite work wear looks.
The pants in all three outfits are from the Loft or Loft Outlet, a store I only began shopping at since the spring challenge. The paisley top on Day 6 was a gift from my BFF Sharon. She showers me in beautiful prizes and goodies and has the best taste! The orange sweater on Day 7 is from Loft Outlet and the blazer is from Chadwick’s online. The burgundy tee and crocheted cardi are both from the Loft Outlet. My big watch was only $5.00 at Steinmart! The black and white color block D’Orsay flats on Day 7 were $11.00 at DSW. My jewelry is from either Charming Charlie’s (tassel) or Kohl’s. I would never have worn print pants before these great challenges so they are totally taking me to a new place in fashion! Please check out the outfits of my fashionista friends linked below. If you try something new in your work wear wardrobe, be sure to share with me. This old dog loves learning new tricks.
