I have been contemplating starting a blog for a while now. My inspiration came one morning on my drive to work. I was listening to the radio (106.7 Lite FM which plays Christmas music 24/7 starting at Thanksgiving) when the "nearly impossible question" of the day came on. This was the question:
Real estate agents were voted the best dressed professionals in a nationwide poll, which profession was voted worst dressed?
I almost NEVER answer the question correctly, but this particular morining I was sure I had the correct answer to the question. I guessed teachers, and I was correct. Being a certified teacher and currently working as a teachers aide, I felt this was a sign that I needed to set the record straight and show people that teachers can have style too. Maybe I could even help my collegues with the daily struggle of getting dressed in the morning. And so Classroom Couture is born. Hope you enjoy my fashion diaries!

The other aspect had in mind for this blog is to show practical workwear for teachers. Working in a middle school with childern all day it is not practical (for myself personally) to be wearing 4" heeled boots. So I decided I would show the outfit as I would want to wear it, and then the outfit revised to be work practical. The current temp in NJ is somwhere in the 30s so coat and gloves are a MUST!
