When that July page get rips off the calendar and August emerges, it can only mean one thing: back to school clothes. YAY!
It’s even more fun when you’re a kindergarten teacher like me. I love the cute new clothes and haircuts my students proudly wear into my classroom on those first days of school. They are all so cute!
Since I rarely buy new anymore, searching the thrift store racks for fun potential back to school refashions has become my tradition. I found this navy blue sailor dress wistfully similar to a dress of mine from long ago. A few changes were definitely needed though, I can’t go back to school trying to look like my own five year old self, you know.
With a few simple changes to the collar, the sleeves and the fit, this dress turned from five year old sailor dress to a more sophisticated nautical ensemble fit for a kindergarten teacher, if I do say so myself. :)
And when you keep getting photo bombed in the field trying to take advantage of some nice evening light, I say just go with it.
Happy Back to School Shopping!
