The Three Cs of Teacher Fashion

Seems like we have a numbered list to help us remember everything. Back in the day, school was all about the “three Rs”: Reading, (w)Riting, and (a)Rithmetic. Today it’s the “four Cs”: Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Creativity, and Communication. Anyone else notice that they dropped math right off of the list? Just a kidding, math teacher friends. Then there’s also the “three Rs” of conservation: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Let’s agree to declare the “three Cs” of teacher fashion to be Cute, Casual, and Comfy. Today I’m sharing a batch of easy-to-copy fall teacher outfits that follow the three Cs.

Elements of Fall Teacher Outfits

Because of the wide (WIDE) range of temperatures in your average classroom this time of year, layers are a teacher’s best friend. You never know when you’ll be starting the day in an Arctic environment and rolling off of lunch into a steamy sauna. Actually, you do know when this will happen: every single day until winter.

Here are some ways to bring in elements of (cute and casual) fall fashion while still being — the most important of the three Cs if you ask me — COMFY.

  • Layers — Did I already mention layers? Yes. But that’s because they are non-negotiable. Good staples to invest in include cardigans (one or two in different lengths, like a long one and a cropped one), a moto jacket, a utility jacket, a sherpa or puffer vest, a denim jacket, a blazer, and a kimono or wrap/ruana. Having an outer layer means you can bundle up in the morning and easily cool off in the afternoon.
  • Jeans –Not all schools allow teachers to wear jeans, but it is becoming more and more common (thank goodness!). Jeans weren’t the most comfortable up until recently: everything has stretch now. Best development ever. I recommend having a pair of blue jeans, black jeans (they can pass for dress pants if they’re dark enough), and white jeans. Then if you want to throw in a fun fall color (try cognac or rust!) or a distressed pair (if they’re allowed), bonus.
  • Lightweight Tops — Solid or print (think striped, leopard, or camo) tops are the perfect base to any outfit. They can be worn alone or as an underlayer for your outerlayer. Basic tops are an affordable way to incorporate some of the season’s trendy colors and prints.
  • Joggers — Joggers have made it into the mainstream, and I am here for it. A good pair of black joggers can be worn with just about anything. Consider additional colors (olive and navy are versatile), and if allowed, faux leather (Spanx leather-like joggers are perfectly cute, casual, and comfy!).

Decorate Your Porch for Fall!

Now that we’ve passed Labor Day, it’s socially acceptable to start decorating for fall. Not that I’ve ever really gone by what’s “socially acceptable,” I guess. The past few years I’ve been all about the black and white buffalo plaid with pale green, and little to no orange. This year I’m back on the black, white, and orange team, and there are so many fun new shades of orange and white pumpkins! Today I’m sharing the beginnings of my own fall porch decor, 5 helpful tips for porch decor planning, and 16 fun Amazon picks to make your porch pop this season.

I always have tall black planters flanking our front doors, but in fall I fill them with mums. Unfortunately, they don’t really get enough sun there, but they usually last at least through Halloween. This year I added quite a few striped things (planters, pillows, pumpkins) to my typical black and white buffalo plaid fall decor. We still need to take our annual family trip to the pumpkin patch for our “big” pumpkins, and I’ll be putting those out on the porch for the season up until we carve them the week before Halloween. It looks a little sparse since I don’t have those out yet, but you get the idea.

Fall Porch Decor Tips

Before you go shopping to decorate your porch for any season, it’s a good idea to do a little planning. Here are some things to think through:

  1. Color Scheme – Choose three main colors that you want to feature. The colors should reflect the season, but should also look good with the color of your house, porch, and front door colors. Last year I chose black, white, and gray. This year I went with black, white, and orange. So original for fall and Halloween, I know. LOL
  2. Furniture – Are you going to swap out your porch furniture or use existing items? I kept my existing items up, but I think my fall porch would look a WHOLE lot cooler with the black bench and black rocker below. They are in my Amazon cart right now….
  3. Flowers and Pumpkins – What colors of flowers and pumpkins will blend well with your color scheme? Do you want them to pop (orange, yellow, red-burgundy) or blend in (peach, white, blue-gray)?
  4. Budget – How much do you want to spend? Take into consideration whether you’re buying things just for this year or whether you want to use them for years to come. Can they be repurposed for other seasons? Could they be used indoors? All things to think through before you buy.
  5. Maintenance – Mums and other flowers have to be watered. Pumpkins may begin to rot. Pillows can get bird poop bombed and might blow off the porch in a strong wind. Tall planters can tip over when big gusts come along. Decide how much time you want (and have) to put into maintaining your decor.
