Fashionable Programmer Day 5: Inspired by another fashionable teacher!

I am fortunate to know quite a few fashionable teachers IRL, but I was still having difficulty figuring out who I wanted to channel and what I wanted to wear today. Inspiration struck while staring at my closet this morning - I saw my sweater vest and thought of a certain fashionable teacher who is very near and dear to my heart: my boyfriend Page :)

As you can tell from the photo above, he has been known to rock a mean sweater vest from time to time, whether it’s in the classroom or attending an awards dinner with his girlfriend. He tries hard to look professional every day, and I admire him for it! He has told me that he’s one of the more dressed-up teachers at his school but he wants to make a good impression because he’s in his first year teaching.

So today, I rocked my own sweater vest outfit:

Sweater vest: Forever 21

Striped shirt: Kohls

Jeans: Old Navy

Shoes: boc

Turquoise accessories: Forever 21

Happy Fashionable Teacher Week, educators!

Thanks for letting me tag along again, and thanks to edukaition for coordinating!

Fashionable Programmer Day 4: Polka-dot-palooza!

image

I didn’t realize how few polka-dotted items I own until I started looking through my closet for them this week. I discovered that I tend to buy florals and stripes much more often! But luckily I picked up this polka dot button up from Old Navy this winter… or else my only other option was to post a photo of my feet sporting polka dot socks :)

I love the subdued brick red color of this top because it pairs well with a lot of things. Today I went with black skinny pants, boots, and gold accessories. I included a close up of my watch, earrings, and the pattern on my shirt because it’s a little hard to tell there are dots on it from a distance.

Polka dot button up: Old Navy

Gray tank: Old Navy

Black skinny pants: The Limited

Boots: Nine West

Earrings: Old Navy

Watch: Anne Klein (Nordstrom Rack)

April {snow} showers

There is a winter storm warning for Hennepin county right now.

My response is to hole up in my apartment, bake a loaf of banana bread, and watch Survivor with Page.

I’m not even mad that it’s snowing in April… I guess you would call this the Acceptance phase. But I’m definitely not going out in it!

Fashionable Programmer Day 3: “On Wednesdays we wear pink!”

image

My trusty photographer (aka roommate) is in Iowa today, so the selfies will have to suffice.

This scarf is probably my favorite pink item in my closet. I got it from the Midtown Global Market here in Minneapolis during the summer I was interning, and have loved wearing it ever since. It’s especially good for springtime because it has a beautiful combination of other pastel colors woven in. I paired it with one of my favorite long cardigans to really drive home the pink theme :)

Pink cardigan: Eddie Bauer

Blue tee: Old Navy

Scarf: Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis

Skinny khakis: Old Navy

Flowered pointy-toe flats: Old Navy

A reminder for all you fashionable teachers!

Fashionable Programmer Day 2: “Fresh spin on a classic”

image

Houndstooth is a classic pattern that has recently been gaining popularity again! I really really love this houndstooth dress I found last fall - it’s been my favorite dress to wear to work all winter, and the style is definitely a fresh spin on the classic pattern. The fit and length of the dress are flattering and I like the ruching detail on one side of the waist.

Dress: American Living (JC Penney)

Boots: Alfani (Macy’s)

Watch: Anne Klein (Nordstrom Rack)

I always get lots of positive comments from coworkers about this dress, but one in particular takes the cake: a guy from my department told me that it reminded him of a couch that his family had in the 70’s, and then proceeded to email me a photo of said couch! My coworker is the kid on the left, circa 1976.

Tagging along with all you fashionable teachers again this week because it’s fun! And edukaition came up with some creative challenges :)
Fashionable Programmer Day 1: “Something old, something new”

Something old: I’ve had this cardigan since high school, and I love the soft robin’s egg hue and the fact that the material doesn’t pill (which is usually the downfall of my other well-worn cardigans). It goes really well with this gray Lauren Conrad blouse for a fun springtime look!

Something new: these cute little earrings! They are also Lauren Conrad, and are a direct result of perusing the jewelry displays at Kohl’s recently.

Cardigan: Worthington (probably from JC Penney 6+ years ago?)
Blouse: Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s
Earrings: Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s
Skirt: The Limited
Patterned nude pantyhose: probably Target
Flats: Dana Buchman for Kohl’s

(If you’re wondering what the heck I’m doing here, check out this post from last fall’s Fashionable Teacher week)
