Now that I'm a teacher, I still do the same thing in August; however, my mom is no longer paying for them! I'm a big girl who makes my own money now, so it looks like I'm paying for my new wardrobe all by myself! I still stand by the rule that I don't wear any of my new stuff until school actually begins. I am finding this really difficult right now with all the cute new things in my closet!
All of these below purchases are from Ann Taylor LOFT...who by the way, give teachers a 15% discount every time we shop. One of the many reasons I do most of my shopping here...that and the $25 coupons you can get now when you spend $50!
I've also ordered these adorable moccasins from Lands End (here and here). And you can't really beat a comfy, cute pair of shoes for $15. Teaching fourth grade requires the most comfortable, slipper like shoes you can find!
I still have a few other things I'm looking at buying before September 8, but I am trying to hold out for better deals...I'm a bargain shopper, have I mentioned this yet? If you've found anything that's adorable and cozy, feel free to share with me!
