It's Just So Ruffly...

Last year, for my first year of teaching, I got the cutest teacher-y clothes from Banana Republic and soon discovered that first grade is not the place to wear clothes that you love.

First grade is the place to wear Old Navy khakis that you don't mind getting ruined.

So, this year, I vowed not to spend too much money on back-to-school clothes.

This sweater, however, is making me want to pull out my Banana Republic card.


  1. I can see why you're tempted, that really is a very cute sweater! :)

  2. So true about not wearing your nice clothes to teach. I teach K and I swear every single pair of my "work pants" has a pen mark on it. The funny thing is that the KIDS didn't make them messy -- I DID! I would always have a pen/marker in my hand while sitting in the rocking chair and I'd drop it or forget the lid was off and accidentally mark myself. Sigh. I LOVE dressing up, though :)

  3. Thanks, Pinch!

    And, Ashley, I know exactly what you mean! I end up ruining most of the stuff myself. I tend to come home with multi-colored hands, too. :)
