i don’t know about you, but i could totally dress from the j. crew catalog. years ago i decided that my go-to outfit for work would be a dress. you don’t have to worry about matching anything, and it’s easy to pull on in a pinch. this year i invested in a couple of pencil skirts and cardigans from j. crew, my so-called “uniform”.
we have a very lax dress code at work (read: none at all) and you’d be surprised at what some teachers wear. we are talking jeans and flip flops, EVERY DAY, and others who look, for lack of a better word, unkempt. i’ve done it myself after seeing others do it, after dealing with one of THOSE mornings, so no judgment here (ok a little). i believe in casual fridays, but some get away with casual monday through friday, and it doesn’t help with garnering any respect for our profession. okay, so i’m sure i’ve angered a few of you teachers out there, but what about you non-teachers? without being too critical, what do you think is acceptable dress for teachers?
do email or comment. i’d love to hear.
