Passionate Fashion - Sexy School Teacher

Since my husband's sister is a librarian, I am not allowed to be a sexy librarian. Haha... it must be a badddd image. LOL

I think I can work it as a sexy school teacher.

I thrifted this satiny skirt this past summer (along with the recent tweed skirt) and I never brought it out of the closet. When I thrifted this striped button down this weekend I knew what I wanted to wear it with.

I pulled this outfit together to make up for the fact that I had to leave work for a bit to pick up my husband. I wanted to make sure that I looked the part of a professional.

It was working for me as I felt pretty good about myself and I was motivated to get stuff done... until my husband called and told me that I couldn't go back to work after I dropped him off.

I hope this professional outfit made up for the fact that I had to run out on the rest of the afternoon.

This is what I changed into for an afternoon of working from home.

These are my jeans that I thrifted this weekend. One of 3 pairs. And I wasn't even looking for jeans! I did put back a Tommy Hilfiger jacket (kicking myself), a pair of black flats (kicking myself), and a black Charter Club sweater... (kicking myself). Note to self. Don't thrift with the husband. You think of all the things that you shouldn't buy. GRRRRR!!!!!

This outfit was pretty inexpensive as most of it was thrifted.

Satin skirt - Worthington thrifted
Striped button down - Foxcroft thrifted (YAY)
White lace teelet - Mia Bellina (won in a giveaway)
Shoes - Payless clearance
Necklace - via Herbergers sale
Sunglasses- Kohls sale

Money spent on the accessories I guess.

Jeans - Lee Heritage thrifted (Sis, check these out!)

Oooh you do look lovely in that first outfit!!

I have to say though, at the school I work in, most teachers are more likely to look like your jeans pic... including lack of shoes!! hee hee

That is a great look; the open button-down with a camisole is a very flattering neckline on you, and the skirt is hooooooootttttt!

Wow, what a successful thrifting trip. Even if you did have to leave some stuff behind. (And yeah, I never shop with the boy if I want to purchase a lot lol)

Love that skirt on you! You should totally rock pencil skirts more often :)
