Working With Style {Halloween Edition}

I’m so happy to be bringing Working With Style back to LWM! And what a perfect way to start it off with some Halloween fun. I have to admit, that I had grand plans this Halloween to dress up at school since they always use this week as Spirit Week and incorporate costumes into the festivities. But as I was trying to pull a fun costume together at the last minute, my kid got a stomach bug and my attention shifted to her. I had already purchased a new orange shirt that I planned to wear if I couldn’t pull off the costume, so not all was lost.

For the record, via chatting with the LWM crew, I had settled on a costume where I’d dress like one of my students. And I kinda still did that since I do have skinny jeans in heavy rotation for teaching outfits. And now that I have this costume idea in my head, I for sure know I can pull it off next year. That should be enough lead time, right?

Anywho, here is my outfit for this week. Sorry it’s such a crappy photo but my camera is my phone and the lighting in my house is no good and it’s kinda blurry. Sigh.

Shirt: Target , Jeans: Old Navy, Shoes: Merrell, Scarf: Piperlime

I’m not the only one who got into the Halloween spirit this year, though. Mary Beth wore some orange to work, but then changed into a costume at home for trick-or-treating with her kiddos.

 And finally, Brandy went with a super easy costume as she’s a nursing momma and needed some ease involved when she visits Ollie for nursing sessions. So here she is, in her costume that she’s titled, “I’m a Woman. Just need a binder.”

Get it?

And for some extra non-Halloween related fun, I lost a bet with my homeroom. One that I wanted to lose. We’ve been competing to raise money for a fundraiser. Our classroom goal was $500. I told my kiddos that for every $100 raised, I’d wear a tutu all day. Alas, my kids raised a little over $300, so Friday was day 1 of tutu wearing. What do you think? Kids can totally take me seriously dressed like this, right?

The tutu is doing nothing for my figure. Sigh. Whatever I can do to get the kids motivated, I’ll do. Well, almost anything, that is.

    I didn’t snap a Halloween picture but i dawned my happy Halloween t-shirt with and orange undershirt. :) I don’t have a blog to link up with but I’m playing along with Katherine’s 30 days with no repeats on instagram and twitter using the #workingwithstyle and #officefashionshow hashtags! I love seeing what everyone is wearing and challenging myself to mix up my outfits. My style (that i claim to have) is what makes ME, not the mom, the worker, the wife, but ME!

    Fun :). It’s hard to be stylish on halloween. Black and orange don’t exactly scream ‘pair me with some accessories and walk me down the runway”!

    Ack! I didn’t get a picture of it, but I was festive in orange and black. Unfortunately my Halloween socks are in storage, so I wore black socks with cats on them.
