Do NOT let these pants fool you, they are not jeggings, they are sleggings*!
(Slack pant leggings??)
At first glance, these may appear to be casual jeans, but in fact, they are navy blue cotton stretch slacks. They are straight leg and machine washable. I bought them at www.papayaclothing.com, which is where I buy almost ALL of my straight leg work pants! The store is totally affordable and their pants come in all styles and colors. I drive over an hour to the Palisades Center Mall, in West Nyack, JUST to visit this fun store.
AHH...the mall is my happy place.
I went for a country-esque theme with this outfit and I felt very comfortable in the classroom. Now, I do NOT recommend you wear this to parent-teacher conferences or to your Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) lesson and meetings, but it is just right for a busy and ever-moving day in the elementary classroom.
*I do own a pair of "Joga Pants" as well and they are from the always cozy store of Aerie. These exercise pants are full-on yoga pants that come with two functioning back pockets, tan stitching, metal brackets and a roughed up blue jean fabric.
Well Done Aerie, Well Done!
This awesome necklace has a great matching bracelet, but I don't know about you girls, but I hate wearing bracelets in the winter. It is sensory overload with my gloves, long sleeves and the parka I am often forced to wear during these cold NY months.
Ok you got me, I would NEVER wear a parka. However, this is the FIRST year I have ever felt compelled to purchased and wear a puffy winter coat and at times, it feels like I just wrapped myself in my bed's comforter and headed to work!
Ahh, only 112 days left until spring!
I have noticed that as the edTPA fast approaches during my speedy first #studentteaching placement, I feel less inclined to make the classroom a runway and more motivated to make it like a retirement home, because I must admit I am exhausted! With that in mind I will do my best to wear everything in my closet, including all 32 cardigans I purchased for student teaching, yes, I said 32. That is what happens when you start purchasing student teaching clothing on the same day you are accepted into the teaching program!
Keep Cute and Carry On!
