Teaching Outfit

Kate Spade Violette Dress
MBMJ pumps
Journal Bon Shopper tote (Similar here, though I love this map version!)

I wore this Kate Spade dress on my second day of teaching for the new semester. I'm glad I was able to track it down via ebay because I coveted it for some time. Although there was a sample sale on this week, I didn't place any orders. I indulged plenty during last month's outlet excursions!

The nice thing about my (admittedly vain) blogging habit is that when I get lazy about assembling outfits I can always look to what I wore this time last year for inspiration. Don't get me wrong. Part of what I love about a stocked closet is coming up with new and interesting combinations of well-loved pieces. But on some days there's just no reason to reinvent the wheel. This Thursday will probably be one of those days. :)

BTW, there's a coupon code that saves $50 off a purchase of $250 (sale items included but sample sales excluded) on I think it is valid until the end of September!

You look gorgeous- this dress is the perfect colour and cut (you've got to be the most stylish teacher out there!) I also love what you wore last year!

Cute dress! I'm always looking for pieces and combinations that are comfortable and appropriate enough to wear working at a school.I can't wait to see what other outfits you come up with throughout the year!

Thank you, Dana! I am excited to check out your blog and see what you wear as well.

Oh, I LIKE this years look much better.  I have admired all of your Kate Spade looks and when my year of thrifting is over, I plan to investigate her dresses.

Wonderful dress!  You look great and it also looks like it's easy to wear.  Perfect for teaching!  Hope you're enjoying the new semester :)

Back to school gear is so much fun to shop for!! You are much more fashionable than most of my professors!

What a perfect beginning to the year.  I love this dress.  It's so cute and the cut is very flattering on you.  And don't worry, I do the same thing with my blog and other people's blogs, look for inspiration.

Awesome outfit to show 'em who's boss- elegant and smart!  I love the slender metallic belt- it really activates the stripes differently!

Still waiting for ebay to magically find one of these for me!
