Trendy Teacher–On a Budget

I think many times teachers get a bad rap for dressing poorly.  People think of teachers as wearing themed holiday sweaters, high water khakis and clunky shoes.  Well, to explain this phenomenon, I introduce you to two words:  TEACHER SALARY! 

Teachers usually wear things until they have so many holes in them, that the garment cannot physically be worn any more.  I am not one of those teachers, but I am not a shop-o-holic either. 

This is a great way to stay trendy without breaking the bank.

This top (which I got on consignment at Plato’s Closet) is one of my favorite summertime shirts and is great with a pair of cut-offs and flip flops for a trip to the beach. The shoulder cutouts and twisted rope detail are so cute and perfect for a night out , but not very work appropriate.  Until now!
Take your wardrobe from the beach to the workplace by simply tucking it in, and adding slacks, a belt and a cardigan.

Beach appropriate + work appropriate = double duty.  Talk about multiple wear-ability. Love that!
