Back to school shopping for grad students and professors continues: Target try-ons!

Welcome back to back-to-school shopping for college teachers! When I was shopping for teaching clothes as a new grad student, I also lived in a very small town. This made it hard to find things secondhand and meant we didn’t have most name-brand stores. One store we did have, however, was Target! Target has some decent work clothing if you’re willing to dig around a bit. Here’s what I tried on and how I would style it to go back to school as a new college teacher.

Round up: Not-so-basic basics

I’m someone who loves a checklist, so when I see a “how to build a capsule wardrobe” infographic I’m all-in. This is how I ended up with too many basics. But I still love a closet staple, I just want it to be slightly more interesting these days. Here are some interesting basics I’ve seen lately and where I find them!

6 things I actually wear when it’s 100 degrees out

I have a really hard time figuring out what to wear when it’s 100 degrees out (or more). The truth is no clothing seems reasonable for extremely hot weather, and most sources of fashion inspo don’t account for these temperatures. So here are some outfits and closet essentials that I am actually wearing for high summer.

ADAY is making office athleisure so naturally, I had to try it

ADAY Turn it Up Pants in olive and Something Borrowed Shirt in midnight

Sporty business casual clothes are kind of my jam–I love anything that is sweatproof, wrinkle-proof, and includes an elastic waistband because as a teacher, I basically need clothes to be all of those things. So it was only a matter of time before I got curious about ADAY, which makes sustainable office clothes that are sneakily actually comfy enough for travel and weekends. Here, I review the Turn it Up Pants and Something Borrowed Shirt.

The workout tank I own in 5 colors is now $20

Hi friends. I don’t think I’ve ever posted about a single item before, but I own this cami with a built-in bra in 5 colors because it’s seriously that good. I wear it for pretty much all my weight lifting, yoga, and hiking. When all 5 of them are in the wash, I get cranky, so yes, I did just go back for more colors.

The Perform Cami Atlantic ā€“ Everlane

I own both the cami and tank versions. I would say they’re true to your typical women’s t-shirt size–I wear a size M and find them perfect (even with a 34F bust). When in doubt I would pick the smaller of 2 sizes (I have one tank in a size L and it’s loose in the straps). They’re cropped to the belly button on me (so possibly a bit longer if you’re not tall).

Consider this your PSA if you need some new workout gear šŸ™‚
