School Clothes

When I was in high school, I had only one teacher I liked, Mr. Dicus.  He was the one who actually made me want to become a teacher (more on this later).  He was young, cute and fun and I will remember his class forever.  I wanted to be just like him when I started teaching, and I hope that I am.

The thing I noticed about ALL of my teachers was, they always wore the same 5 outfits.  I hated it, I wanted to see something new, wanted to be surprised every day, but nope.  Teachers are notorious for heading to school in a track suit with wet hair and no makeup, why is that?  So, I vowed never to be one of them.

For 90 days, one semester, I do not repeat an outfit.  I will repeat articles of clothing but never a complete outfit.  Second semester, I am allowed to because, after all, I do not have THAT many clothes.  I also am the only teacher at my school that wears heels.  I dress up and it makes me happy, less tired and ready for the day.  

This year, Ian had the idea of taking a picture of my outfits every morning before we left for school.  I thought it would be fun too, so we did it.  My friends do often ask me if I wear all of the clothes/shoes I have in my closet and I knew this would prove to them that I did.  Christie and Jenny said once, "If you looked at all of Allison's shoes, what job would you guess she had?  Not a teacher for sure!"  Hahaha I do have some crazy shoes!

Anyway, here are my outfits for your viewing enjoyment.  Almost 45 days worth of clothes (some days we skipped because we forgot, time, or because I was going to a conference).  And yes, we DO have Spirit Days, I do not dress like a nerd or hippie just because.  :)  Enjoy!
