I liked this round-up of teacher style inspirations featuring a black skirt (perhaps the most basic, ubiquitous garment there is, aside from black pants and jeans). Definitely some good outfit formulas on display. I chose to transition this work outfit (with the white with black polka dots top that every fashion blogger seems to own) for the weekend.
Oops, two problems with this photo. (1) I forgot to put the skirt in it so it looks like I'm planning to run around with my ass hanging out. (2) The red cardigan blends into the sofa, so it looks like I'm planning to wear the world's narrowest shirt. Together, these oversights suggest that I am going to be extremely under-dressed. But at least I didn't forget the shoes--which is a recurring theme in certain anxiety dreams I have. They usually involve going to school without shoes. Not a good move for a teacher...or even someone mimicking a teacher outfit. (It's bad enough that with this White Rabbit pocket watch, it's always 5:05 so I am always late to class.)

This white rabbit didn't mind the twist that my outfit took. OK, yep, I have They Might Be Giants in my head now.

In other news...The rabbits of the world will NOT APPROVE of this, but I thought that the first photo of this post was so cute. (I would feel differently if I were a bunny, though.)
