With school starting back up again, I figured I could share with you my favorite teacher outfits I’ve worn over the last 3 years.  If you’ve been following me from the very beginning, then you know that I started my Instagram account as a way to share my favorite teacher outfits.  When I started teaching I was always approached by other teachers to let them know where I bought my outfits.  So I decided it was finally time to do a round up of all my favorites, even if I’m not teaching in the classroom this year.  (You can read my blog post about why I’m not returning to the classroom here.)


Many of these exact outfits are no longer sold, so I’ve created this list to be more of an inspiration while using what you already have in your closet.  I have created a list of my favorite places to buy teacher outfits below though to help with your back to school shopping. Please note that some of these links contain affiliate links, which means a portion of your purchase will help fund my blog.  This won’t increase your price in anyway and just helps to keep the blog going strong! Thanks!
