School is starting tomorrow for us (technically teacher meetings are tomorrow and school starts Friday) and although I’m swamped with preparations my mind is also gearing up for fall fashions. This Topshop camo jacket is the perfect weight to wear in place of a cardigan or light jacket in my chilly school building. It’s also going to be great for Friday nights in August-September when I’ll be sitting in the football stands cheering our team.

I love that the camo pattern is on the lighter side, and I also love that the fabric is substantial (not at all flimsy), yet feels already broken in. It has a little bit of stretch to it so you can wave your arms around wildly without restriction. Am I the only one who does that when teaching?
I don’t think I’d actually wear this with leggings to teach — even on a Friday. I would either wear (white, blue, or black) jeans, a skirt (maybe a cute black and white striped one?), or a pair of black stretch jeggings that look like dressy jeans (see them here in item #1).
With this outfit, though, a bright bag like this red Rebecca Minkoff Unlined Saddle adds just the right punch to finish things off.
Although I’m sad summer is coming to an end, I have to admit I’m a little excited to meet my new students and get this school year off to a great start.
