Back-to-school shopping is all about stocking your shopping cart full of backpacks, pencils and new tennis shoes, which can add up quickly! But what about the teachers? They need to shop for the new school year too. So I’ve rounded up three budget-friendly head-to-toe looks that will have you ready for picture day!
J. Crew has come out with its fall looks, and they never fail to provide work-appropriate styles that bring joy to the world. This Liberty perfect shirt ($150) is great in any floral pattern you choose, but my favorite is the navy! I particulary like how they’ve added the tie tucked into the jeans — such a chic menswear-inspired look that can help you switch up your day-to-day outfits! Wear it with these bright peach skinny jeans from Forever 21 ($25) to create an eye-catching color combo. Slip on these strappy wedges ($35) and to-die-for Ray Ban aviators ($160), and you’re all set to chase the kids around come recess time!
You’ve learned all about your kids, so now it’s time to see where they come from. This can be a nerve-wracking experience, so set a cheery tone with this City shift dress ($138) from Ann Taylor (I’m absolutely in love with this marigold color!) and charm them with these charm earrings from Forever 21 ($7). Show off your personality with these leopard Monsoon heels ($96) and don’t forget to bring all of your important documents in this chic black shopper basket from Zara ($80).
Day to night
Teachers and happy hour go together like, well, you know. It’s always a plus when you can leave a particularly taxing school day and be able to head straight to a restaurant to eat, drink and unwind. I’m obsessed with these black and white Sofie pants from Victoria’s Secret ($70). They have such a sexy fit and can be worn in so many different ways! I like them with this budget-friendly Xhilaration blazer ($25) and this fun Asos Aztec print belt ($14). Finish off the look with these black banana heel booties ($90) and get ready to leave your house and not be back until nightfall!
