Hot for Teacher...{LMAO!}

Ok, so now I am dating myself...but I couldn't resist! Well, actually I am dating my husband since he was the one who spoke the Van Halen line Hot for Teacher last week when I was getting ready to go over to the college to teach a class. While I seriously doubt any of my students are thinking the same {God, let's hope not! They're more likely to be thinking, "why can't these psych exams be easier?!"}...I'm mighty glad to have a Mister who thinks so + is MORE than happy to tell me! Ironically, the burst of {albeit shortlived} warmth we enjoyed the weekend before last got me to thinking that I'll be due for some wardrobe changes soon. Sadly though, I realized had not taken as many photos of some of my favorite outfits from this past season as I would have liked. You see, between dropping a good amount of baby weight over the last months + actually having a reason {rationalization} to buy more dressed up clothing for work...well, I've found myself with a better {+ slightly more adventurous} wordrobe than I've indulged in owning in some time!
Mauve Tshirt: Ed Hardy {before that other guy took over and put his name on everything}
Jacket: Marshall's
Sweater Skirt: Target {circa 2008}
Tights + Boots: Anthropologie

It is quite a paradox, but between having grown up attending catholic school {uniforms} + the amount of tattoo work I have now as an adult, I tend to be a rather conservative {i.e.: boring} dresser. I love clothing with neat, tailored lines, especially in solid colors of browns, greens, navy and ofcourse, black. This past winter season, I've tried to change things up a bit by adding more color, some funky pieces, and even some prints {like these fun tights...thanks for the inspiration Nickey!} to my wardrobe. As the seasons change and the clothing I wear doesn't cover as much of my tattoo work, I'll probably back off on the prints {I don't want my outfits to clash with...well, myself!} However, I'm pretty excited to have taken a chance on expanding my wardrobe....and I really loved this outfit!


What daring pieces have you added to your wardrobe over the last season? More outfits to come!



  1. Those tights and boots are so rad!

  2. My husband says the same thing to me. I tend to dress like a rockabilly or pinup type (but more on the conservative side) when I am outfitted for work. He always tells me that if I were his teacher, he would have definitely had a crush on me.

    Amen sister!
    So fun.. so glad that I took the risk on the boots + tights...but seriously, whe it is Antro, how can it be bad, really?

  4. I'm Renee and a new follower of your blog! Just thought I'd say hello!

    anyhoot, i love what you've got going here, very cute!

    Feel free to take a look at mine [you know, just so you know who's reading yours :)]

    Renee xo

  5. Love the outfit. You are totally hot for teacher. @ hubby says my teacher clothes make me look frumpy--they're girl cute, not boy cute. Oh well....

    I'm totally gonna look into some of the books on the list here. Love David Sedaris. He and I went to the same high school.

    BTW, I'm trying to start up a little feature on my own newbie blog that shows off teacher fashion, would you maybe be interested?

  6. @Leah Marie
    For SURE I'd be interested!

    And I LOVe that you and D. Sedairs went ot the same school! How awsome...his book Squirrel seeks Chipmunk is so twisted + brilliant...definately a worthwile, thought provoking read!


I would love to hear your thoughts...especially if they are nice! So post away friends, post away!
