One thing my mother-in-law and I seem to do well is shop. I can peruse the aisles and racks of stores in Tulsa or online boutiques and find absolutely nothing. Then, I can go to Lawton, OK and make out like a bandit!
While out and about, my mother-in-law and I shopped for a few more items to add to my professional attire. I made it through student teaching with 2 pairs of trousers, a pair of jeans, and a few tops as I was losing pregnancy weight during that time and didn’t want to load up on clothes that wouldn’t fit me for long. Take a look at my new purchases!
I acquired this lovely jacket. My torso is not that long, so it sits a bit more at my appropriate waistline. It’s a different looking piece for me, but hey! Branching out! I also picked up these fine numbers below. The hippie shirt actually came in white with gray and that’s what I picked up. As far as the other two shirts, I think the shirts are very teacher appropriate and I can throw a jacket or cardigan over them easily. Also, this is one time I can definitely say I think I looked better than the models in these outfits…
I had a great time shopping with my MIL and feel a little relieved now that I have some clothes to start the year off with.
*Note: as my job isn’t 100% official yet, I have kept the tags on. Due to some weird board approval stuff, I won’t “technically” be approved until after school starts, but they feel confident enough to put me on payroll, so I’m trying to stay confident as well.
