This business of getting dressed in clothes that are professional, yet allow for comfort and movement, is not a new concept for me, but it's been awhile since I've had to wear something other than jeans. I once ran a teacher style blog, many moons ago, but put that cow to pasture. I think it's time for me to venture down that path again, only here on Across and Down. The last few weeks I've been searching Pinterest and other blogs, trying to research what elementary school teachers wear when they want to look cute but still be comfortable. I'm going to be the type that gets involved in activities, not afraid to sit criss-cross-applesauce, or get my hands dirty. The last thing I'm going to want to worry about is my clothes getting in my way. I'm finding there's not much out there in the blogosphere that supports what I'm looking for. So, I'm going to forge ahead, myself, and figure out outfits that work and share them here.
Today's outfit is practically perfect for me. This navy dress allows me to move, while keeping me covered. It has pockets!!! The mustard tights add a pop of fun color and warmth. And the boots are just the right height of chunky heel, yet still give my feet comfort.

If you happen to know of any great teacher style blogs, please do share! I'm always looking for inspiration. :)
