Waistcoats for Teaching

This is the second appearance of this awesome patterned dress that I picked up, for free, at a clothing swap I recently attended. This time I added a little waistcoat to, you know, mix it up a little, as the kids say. I think the look is still academic/professional – this is going to make a nice little teaching outfit if I do say so myself!



dress: clothing swap / waistcoat: H&M / necklace: vintage from my grandmother

I love that print! Looks good with the waistcoat I agree. I always have to wear heels when I am lecturing otherwise all the students seem to tower over me, when did kids all get so tall lol!
