#OOTD: Teacher’s Edition Week 3

Sep 1
#OOTD Teacher's Edition Week 3

It’s been another busy week here at The Corner. With school pictures, Back to School Night, new Teachers Pay Teachers products, and unseasonably muggy weather, the Labor Day weekend couldn’t have come quickly enough. Here’s a peak at my looks for the week:

Yes, I understand that my looks are pretty much the same this week. I have a sort of uniform that I know looks good on me- the shift dress. I also have a few great shoes and accessories that go with pretty much everything, hence the same necklace and sandals. It’s a good money saving tip: buy things that work for a large part of your wardrobe, and it’s money well spent.

This Week's Teacher Wardrobe Tip of the Week

Yes! I braved the outlet mall yesterday in search of Labor Day deals, but being on a budget, I couldn’t afford to make bad purchases. Here was my game plan:

1.  I checked my favorite store’s wish list to see if anything was marked down, which it wasn’t. That’s the thing about holiday sales; the stuff you want is rarely marked down.

2. I mapped out my go-to stores at the mall, and only went there: Off 5th Ave. (Sak’s Outlet), Kenneth Cole, J. Crew, Loft, and Neiman Marcus Last Call. I only went to those shops. Anything else would have been a waste of time.

3. I went in knowing what was lacking in my wardrobe. What I really needed was a white t-shirt from Kenneth Cole. Best case scenario was finding some jeans at Neiman’s or Sak’s. Worst case scenario, I wouldn’t buy anything, and I was okay with that.

4. I wasn’t going to buy anything on impulse or because it was at a huge markdown. Most of the stuff they were trying to pawn off on me was garbage (Shame on you Ann Taylor and your camo pants!). I did see some supper cute navy blue polka-dot pants at J. Crew, but it wasn’t a need and not at a big enough markdown. If I can’t stop thinking about them, I’ll go back later. And I didn’t get the nice Joe’s Jeans at Sak’s because, even though they were really nice (and cheap!), they were bootcut, and with cooler weather on the way, I need skinny jeans to fit in my boots, so they were a no.

So what did I get? I found a $70 navy cardigan at J. Crew for $25. Not amazing, I know, but I knew I needed one to go with several things. I also got my white t-shirt at Kenneth Cole, along with a teal one (BOGO Free). In total I spent $55 on merchandise I will wear that would have cost $130. Not too bad! And I don’t have those ugly camo pants sitting in my wardrobe screaming, “What were you thinking!”
