Truth be told, a lot of "professional" clothing feels too straight-laced for teaching. Other teachers may disagree but I just don't feel relatable to students when I'm wearing a pencil skirt. And I'm less apt to be walking around the classroom, helping students when I'm wearing 3-inch pumps.
One way that I do like to spruce up my work-wear, however, is by adding a blazer. Blazers provide that extra professional touch but I still feel comfortable doing my job. Patterned blazers, in particular are a fun way to to up the professionalism! Here are a bunch of patterned blazers that would be great additions to your professional wardrobe (I'm particular to the plaid ones, this time of year).
I wore this particular outfit for the first night of parent-teacher conferences. My outfit had to take me from teaching by day to talking to parents all night. I was comfortable and I felt put-together for a crazy, 12-hour day!

I can't get enough of Katie's pattern mixing! I don't know if I would have thought to put these pieces together but I think they make for a perfectly whimsical outfit!
