I am so excited to share a new series/category that I will be featuring on The Teacher Diva called, Wear To Work. I get many emails requesting work outfit inspiration and I am looking forward to incorporating more work wear options on TTD. Although I am no longer in the classroom (you can read more about that here), I do find myself looking for office appropriate clothing to wear when I have brand visits or lunch meetings.
While, I don’t want this series to be focused on “teachers only” (I know many of you are not teachers), I did feel a personal connection to this one. This outfit is one that you would normally find me in while teaching. My classroom was notoriously cold, so no matter what time of year, I always had my denim jacket or cardigan on hand. I know some of you can relate! Also- comfort is key and I wearing cotton dresses. They are just so comfortable and easy to move in! This Navy Midi Dress from Nordstrom is probably the most comfortable dress I own (it feels like pajamas, which may or may not be a good thing at work). I usually did not wear heels, since I was on my feet 90% of the day, but for you guys who have a desk, I love these lace up heels. You’ve probably seen me wear them over and over again on here, but they really are very comfortable, versatile and easy to walk in.
So, what do you think of this series? My goal is to have two posts a month featuring specific work appropriate outfits at all price points. Is there anything specific you want to see in this series? As you may know, we are working on a few exciting changes with The Teacher Diva and one of them is incorporating a few new categories to the blog. Since this was such a highly requested topic, I wanted to share this one first!
If you have a specific Wear to Work question or theme you want to see, feel free to shoot us an email at theteacherdiva.com with Wear to Work in the subject line. I would love to hear from you! xx Ashley
