You can never go wrong with a black midi dress. Layer it with a belted cardigan & mules for a comfortable, yet casual fit.


A long sleeve mini dress is a favorite as we transition into Fall. It works well worn alone with boots, or layered with a cardigan.


A printed midi skirt is a workwear staple. I love that you can pair it with flats, heels, or even sneakers.


A floral midi dress is another staple I feel everyone (teacher or not) should own in closet. Wear alone, layer with or even dress it down.


Stretch your closet even further & layer a pretty polo sweater over the top! Add some strap sandals to complete your look.


Black pants are classic & a good reliable pull on busy mornings. I love this cropped flare style. Dress up with a cami & pumps.


Dress your cropped flare pant down casual with a denim jacket. Add in a fun leopard print mule for contrast.


While there’s buzz that skinny pants are out, a good skinny black pant will forever be considered workwear essential.


Bring in a bit of color with a coral printed blouse. Complete your casual look with chain mules & roomy tote.


A chino pant is my top pick for workwear capsules. It fills any casual void & provides us with the prettiest hue for Fall.
