I’ve already shared cozy fall favorites, but I’ve been doing more shopping and couldn’t resist letting you in on the items I’ve added to my wardrobe over the last few weeks. Fall can be hard to dress for because our temperatures vary widely even throughout the same day. In the classroom this often means lots of layers! I also think that autumn has a very specific vibe and I’m all about dressing for that. Here are my pics for teacher fall outfits: (all links are affiliates)
90 Degree by Reflex faux leather leggings – These are my all-time favorite leggings. This brand is my go-to for all types of leggings, but the faux leather version is absolutely perfect. They aren’t super shiny, and the crackle finish hides all of the bumps that are accentuated by other types of faux leather leggings. They also have a lot more stretch than other faux leather options.
Balloon-sleeve waffle knit sweater – A soft pullover is a must, and my favorite thing about this one is all of the details. Those balloon sleeves, the waffle knit, it looks elevated and pulled together.
Plaid blanket scarf – I will always love a blanket scarf. The tan and black vibe is exactly what I’m feeling this season – it’s neutral, classic, and still really cozy.
Leopard print tunic – I still can’t get enough leopard print, and a great tunic that I can easily wear with leggings is a must-have, so this one is a no-brainer. It’s comfortable and casual, but still nice enough to wear to work. It also has pockets!
Oversized color block sweater – I just got one of these and I’m obsessed. It’s so so so soft and comfortable, but for some reason I feel very adult and chic when I’m wearing it. That feeling brings so much confidence that this sweater paired with my faux leather leggings might be my new favorite outfit.
Judy Blue black slim fit jeans – If I can find a way to wear jeans to work I will absolutely do it. Judy Blue jeans are the absolute best. They’re stretchy and comfortable, but somehow they still look like denim. These are the first jeans that I choose to wear instead of leggings! The black makes these a little more work appropriate, and is great for fall and winter – plus they’re heavier than dress pants for those really cold days.
Quilted Vest – I love a vest. I’m always cold and vests are an easy way to add another layer, but they’re also really cute. I’ve been a huge fan of the quilted look for a while now, it’s just classic. I don’t even want to admit how many quilted vests are in my closet right now.
Black Vera Bradley Vera tote – Vera Bradley totes have been a staple for me since college, and I’m so happy that these solid color versions are really becoming more popular. This black one is such a great teacher tote, and perfect for the fall vibe I’m looking for.
Plaid button down tunic – I’m a country girl at heart and the fact that plaid button downs are mainstream makes me ridiculously happy. I’ve done the buffalo plaid, the heavy flannel, the bright colors, this season I’m all about the black and tan together.
Lace sleeve blouse – This is the best kind of top, it’s a comfy long-sleeve tee but the eyelet lace gives it a dressier look. This is exactly the type of blouse that I’m most likely to wear when I have to dress up because it doesn’t feel dressy – but it looks it. This would also be cute paired with a vest or scarf.
Gold Sparkle Hey Dudes – Shoes have to be comfortable for me to wear them. That’s a requirement, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t also be cute. Hey Dudes definitely meet that comfort level that I’m looking for, and if it comes in gold sparkles then I’m all over it.
Leopard sneakers – I just got these and I’m in love with them. The leopard print is unique, and they’re so comfortable. It feels like I’m just wearing socks. These are definitely the kind of sneakers that can be worn with nicer outfits.
Suede Booties – It took me a while to get on the bootie train, but I’m fully here for them right now. This color is perfection, and I appreciate the little heel too.
Pavoi Jewelry – A friend shared this brand with me and now I want to give them all my money. Everything is so cute! These tiny hoops are perfection because they’re so small that they can’t be grabbed by a child like a larger hoop could. This layered necklace goes with everything, I can completely see myself wearing it every single day.
I’m saving many of these items for Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days (coming up – October 10th and 11th!), feel free to add them to your own shopping list!
