My Favorite Spring Teacher Shoes

My Favorite Spring Teacher Shoes


Spring is finally here! What a winter we've had up in Northern California - let's just say it was not a great way to spend my first winter after moving from Los Angeles where it's 72 degrees and sunny every day. But now that the sun is here, my spring shoes and dresses are making their way back into my classroom outfit rotation :)

I've shared each of these spring shoes from Earth Brands (my favorite shoe company in the world) on my Instagram page already here, but I figured I'd round them all up in one place for you! Please note that these links are affiliate links, which help me pay my bills and keep this blog of mine up and running :) You don't get charged any extra for shopping through these links. 

These are the perfect teacher shoes for spring! They are incredibly comfortable and can be worn in the classroom all day without your feet (or back) hurting! The perfect flats, wedges, and sandals to wear in the classroom this spring :)


From left to right, you have the Poppi Sandal in Dusty Blue Suede, the Earthies Essen in Bright Pink Suede, and the Earth Sky Sandal in Almond. Each of these shoes is perfect for the classroom. The Poppi Sandal dresses up any teacher dress or skirt, the pink Essens are the perfect pop of color and cheer for spring, and the Sky Sandal is a great casual flat that is still nice enough to wear in the classroom. The even bigger selling point? Each of these shoes feel like pillows are hugging your feet all day long. No blister. No back pain. Just heaven in a shoe. I promise you! 

Below, I've included some different ways I've styled each of these shoes. Links to most outfit pieces included as well!

Beautiful Spring Maternity Dresses

Beautiful Spring Maternity Dresses


If you've been out of the loop, you may not know that I'm pregnant! And almost to the halfway point at that. It's hard to believe how quickly it has gone by. With that being said, I wanted to share three gorgeous spring maternity dresses that are affordable, quality, and perfectly comfortable/appropriate to wear in the classroom (or not, if you're not a teacher like I am). What I love so much about each of these dresses is that even though they are maternity, I know I'll be able to wear them even as non-maternity dresses as well! That's a win-win if you ask me, since I've been trying not to spend too much money on maternity clothes :) All dresses were sent to me care of Shop Pink Blush, but all opinions are my own! They also have some incredible non-maternity styles as well. 



I couldn't be more in love with the lace detailing on this dress. Then add in the sleeves, and it's simply one of those pieces you can't pass up adding to your closet. I'll be wearing this all throughout spring as well as for either our baby shower or gender reveal party as we get closer to my due date. You can grab the dress here, and shop the rest of the look below.




Talk about the perfect dress to take you from teaching right to those hot spring/summer days. I'm sure I'll be wearing this all the way through the summer until August. The floral pattern adds such a nice touch of femininity! Grab the dress here and shop the rest of my look below.




I am NOT usually a pink person (or much of a color person for that matter), but the purples in this dress completely caught my eye - as did the chiffon material, which is incredibly comfortable and airy as I get sweatier (gross I know) a lot more easily! You can grab this dress here and the rest of the look below!

The Yellow Spring Dress

The Yellow Spring Dress



When I saw this dress online, I thought, "Well, it might be cute?" Even when it arrived, the same thought went through my head that maybe it would look cute on ... Well, this dress just goes to show that you can't judge a piece of clothing until you actually try it on. Because this dress is simply too stinking cute!

It's a little too short for the classroom, but you could probably get away with wearing it with tights or a dress extender (like this one) underneath. It's also the perfect dress for a weekend afternoon of wine tasting or an outside wedding in the summer. The yellow isn't too loud at all (and I am not usually a fan of the color yellow), and the lace adds a gorgeous feminine detail to it. To top it off, it's quite comfortable for a lace dress!

The Perfect Winter Coat for Teachers

The Perfect Winter Coat for Teachers




This Buttoned A-Line Coat might just be my favorite piece this winter. The outside is velvety soft, and the inside is lined with what feels like a satin material. And the price for this piece is truly unbeatable - the same jacket from J. Crew would be 2-3 times more expensive!

If you're looking for a new winter coat, I would highly recommend this one! The A-line shape is extremely flattering on nearly any body type, and it's one of those classic pieces that will be worn year after year.

7 Winter Teacher Outfits for the Classroom

7 Winter Teacher Outfits for the Classroom


Dressing for the winter in the classroom can be a bit of a challenge. It's freezing outside, but then you get inside and it's sweltering hot (and you may not even have access to control the temperature in your classroom - thank goodness I do!). I find winter to be such a fun season to dress for, but it can definitely test my ability to dress well. There are days where I want to go to school in the closest thing to sweatpants and a sweatshirt simply to stay warm (I, of course, resist that urge). And let me tell you, after moving from Southern California (where it's 50-60 degrees in the winter) to Northern California (where it's 25-45 degrees in the winter) I have been chilled to my core!!

So to help you get dressed and ready through the rest of the winter, I've rounded up some of my favorite winter teacher outfits for the classroom. Many of these looks include pieces that I've reused and am re-wearing. (Does anyone else feel bad buying something and then only wearing it once or twice? Why do that when you could get so much more use out of it simply by layering or adding a different scarf?!)

You'll notice a trend with a lot of these looks - black, grey, and white. Since I had to buy a lot more winter-y clothes (moving from LA, I have basically zero), I decided to stick to a color theme so I could more easily mix and match. To add color, simply throw on a scarf!



This skirt (all the heart eyes). I wish J. Crew still had it in stock, but I purchased it about three years ago. J. Crew is still on the fluted skirt train, and I think they're beautiful. There's just something whimsical and extra girly about this style (and I'm not even super girly-girl at all!).


I love this look simply for the ease of it. Black jeggings, black top, grey sweater. What you can't see in this picture is that this sweater has adorable buttons down the back of it - I love the added detail to make it an especially unique piece! In the mornings, I throw on my warm winter coat, and I'm ready to go!


I love all of the layers in this look. On days that it rains, I dislike wearing jeggings because they tend to get wet or damp and they stay that way for a while. Instead, tights and a skirt (or in this case, a dress), will dry out much faster! This look has many layers to it. I started with a darling Banana Republic Factory dress ($35 - a steal!), added an old chambray, a sweater, and then a vest. The layering is what makes this look stand out, and I just absolutely love it. 


Another simple look to keep in your back pocket. Black jeggings (per usual), a white blouse, and a cream (or any color would work) vest. Add a scarf for some more color and depth!


I wish Banana Republic still had this pencil skirt in stock because I loved styling it for winter, but you could absolutely wear this skirt any time of year in the classroom - it's incredibly versatile. I got it from Banana's sale rack with an additional 40% off - it came to about $25 (can't pass that up!). Adding black to the rest of the look makes it an easy one to wear over and over again :) 


If you follow me on Instagram or you've read this post, you know how much I love this sweater. It is so soft, and while it is kind of a stand-out piece that people notice, I think you could get away with wearing this once a week if your heart desired! Just add different scarves and/or vests to change the look!


Another great Banana Republic Factory investment in this coat (of course, got it on sale!). It's a great coat to wear through winter and the fall and spring - one of those versatile pieces that can be worn again and again. I'm a big believer in purchasing quality, timeless pieces! 

I also recently added this jacket to my wardrobe, and I've been wearing it over pretty much every outfit! Keeps me warm outside for yard duty :)

My Favorite Winter Piece

My Favorite Winter Piece




This striped turtleneck is my favorite winter go-to piece right now. It's beyond comfortable and it can be dressed up for school or dressed down for the weekend. Either way, you'll be sure to get compliment after compliment in this beautiful piece.

To dress it up for work, throw on a pair of comfortable black jeggings and some cute black boots. I also like pairing this with a black or burgundy vest when I wear it to school. To dress it down for the weekend, simply trade out the black jeggings for a pair of jeans and add a vest! I love these down vests from J. Crew - make sure to grab one while they're still on sale!

A Weekend With Earth Brands

A Weekend With Earth Brands



If you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love Earth Brands. So I got together with them to do a little weekend takeover of their Instagram account. Here are some of my favorite shots from our weekend together. (I've linked up all of the shoes that are still in production - they're the best teacher shoe ever made!









The first day, we went to a local town fair, and I paired the Earth Odyssey Ankle Boots with a fun dress and layered thin sweater. These were the perfect shoes to walk around town in!

On the second day, we spent the day exploring San Francisco - from the Painted Ladies to Pier 39, we definitely did A LOT of walking. The Earthies Bindis in Coral were an excellent match for a more casual, yet preppy look. (Bonus, no blisters at all, and it was my first time wearing them for that long!)

Are you an Earth Brands fanatic like I am? I've included links to some of my favorite pairs that I own!
