I Need, I Want: Pointy Toe Flats for Spring

I try to wear pointy toe flats throughout the spring to give me flexibility with wearing more casual separates.  The shoes dress up an otherwise casual pencil skirt and simple blouse or sweater.  Here are a few picks in three different price points.  Several of these options are available in additional colors and textures.

Teacher Dress Up: First Days of Spring

I picked up a pair of powder blue cropped pants at Marshalls last week. I’m eager to try them with as many colors as possible, grey, yellow, coral, light pink, and of course a crisp white. Here, I’ve used the scarf to pull the whole look together. I’m all about a pointy toe flat which appears more professional than a Dansko clog or round ballerina flat. The jewelry may be a bit matchy, but could easily be changed for a simple pair of gold geometric-inspired studs. The belt adds some texture and the simple enamel bangles blend but don’t distract from the scarf.

Beyond the Bell: Spring Cocktails

Although Memorial Day seems ages away, I decided it was early enough to bring out the white jeans. I’m still comfortable wearing a pair of skinny jeans and a half-tucked silk blouse.  It’s simple, it works, and it can easily dress up or down based on the occasion.  Here, I selected two options for Team Gold and Team Silver.  I chose Moroccan-inspired earrings and accessories to pair against the blouse’s pattern.  If you prefer flats, these, these, or these, are all adequate options.

Teacher Dress Up: Spring Field Trip

Spring Field Trip
I try to steer clear of jeans on field trips.  Usually you’re accompanied by other visitors at the site, and it’s an opportunity to show the world that teachers are PROFESSIONAL.  However, you most likely will be walking all day and in a casual environment.  I opted for relaxed khakis that can be rolled for some added style.  The scarf, belt, and sweater create a spring color palette.  A backpack is a necessity, this one is just large enough for some snacks, attendance sheets, and first aid items.  The Converse can be swapped for a loafer or Sperry if you prefer.  A light jean jacket may be a good tag along since the air conditioning is usually kicked up several notches.
