Let me tell you, I am much nicer when I like my clothes. This applies heavily to teaching and being in the classroom because in order to perform at my best I need to feel cute and comfortable in my outfits. If my clothing doesn't allow for free movement or makes me feel self-conscious, I can become distracted from crushing it at educating young minds. Who hasn’t felt the pressure to keep up with the latest trends, it’s not always easy to feel cute and take care of busy simultaneously. 

This year I have partnered with Kohl's and their juniors brands: Candie's, Mudd, and SO, to channel 3 fashionable fall trends into my teacher approved wardrobe. Follow these easy-to-implement trends to upgrade your fall.

Fall Trend 1: Reds, pinks and more reds 
The color alone isn't a trend, but you'll see red as a monochromatic look everywhere. You can find me in the class room sporting mauve Mudd jeans to bring flair to a simple Mudd floral blouse combo. Stay on trend by using red as a statement and splash color to brighten the drabs and muted colors of fall, like I did with these Mudd pants and these SO ankle boots in pink.  I paired the bottoms with a Mudd tie front top (just make sure you are wearing high-waisted pants). Also, it is worth noting that I usually wear a size 8 in jeans and had to get an 11 in these Mudd pants (and they still fit snug) -- so size up!

Fall Trend 2: Showing off your Waistline 
This fall, expect curvy figures to make a big step onto the fashion stage. It's time for your tiny waistline to be dressed up! I chose this SO skirt because I knew the cinched waist band would hit in the right spot to give my figure a flattering angle with a more structured blouse up top.

Fall Trend 3: Busy, busy prints 
Prints have dominated for the last 3 seasons, and you can expect pairing opposing prints to be around with the fall trends in 2018. Honestly, I can't get enough of button up blouses when teaching. They offer me the ability to move freely while still looking professional. Catch me printing worksheets and book reports in this Kohl's pairing of a floral top and striped paper bag trousers all year long! Also, if you're a fellow teacher, you know how much comfortable shoes can change day-to-day in the classroom. I bought these silver SO sandals with mobility in mind! They are going to last me through the season.
