I've never talked about what I wear to school on a daily basis, mostly because up until last year, it was whatever was clean, and fit. Now that I've spent the past six months trying to get in better shape through the gym, LB practices, and Weight Watchers, I've decided that I want to make a concerted effort to dress up nicely every day for work!
I revamped my wardrobe this summer, throwing away all my "grungy" clothes, and stocking up on staples that can be used in many different ways.
My Top Stores
1. New York and Company (they give a teacher discount every day!) I always get my staples here: black pants, pencil skirts, blouses, and then pair them with more expensive accessories. I am totally shoe and bag obsessed, and since it's just the two of us, I like to spend some of my hard earned money in my closet. :) I know they are expensive, but if you get a pair of low-heeled Manolo Blahniks, they will last forever. They send them out and resole them, many times FREE OF CHARGE. It's the shoe that keeps on giving, seriously. I'm also pretty picky about my bags. I've always been loyal to Coach, although recently I've been rocking my clearance Charming Charlie bag in mint for the summer!
2. The Red Dress Boutique: I became OBSESSED with this store over the summer. They have the cutest clothes, and I love their ballet flats!
3. Charming Charlie
4. Target: When it starts to get cold, and I want to wear one of my bazillion scarves, I always turn to my trusty Target v-necks! These always go on sale, and are great to have in the closet for layering!
5. Toms: These are some of the most comfortable shoes ever, and I just feel more dressed up wearing these than say, sneakers.
I have the original kind in a few colors, but the wedges below are on my wishlist!

Here's some of my stuff in action :) I'm going to try to post my outfits frequently throughout the school year, just for fun and also to make sure I am staying dedicated to my goal!
Here's the organized closet (for now...)
Gotta have my geeky shoes for Fridays! :)
While it's still warm enough!
