    I always love picking out what to wear on the first day! This time, I need to wear something a little bit casual because for the second half of the day, we are going to the track. (just walking around and eating ice cream--a treat for the freshman for their first day of high school) I still don't know what I'm wearing, but it'll be probably some kind of dress with sandals. I usually wear dress pants and heels on the first day, but I'm not walking outside in that!

    I actually have no idea... I did buy these cute raspberry colored wedges today, so I think I will wear those. At least I know what shoes!

    Part of me was considering wearing a suit on the first day of school. I definitely don't plan to wear one everyday, but I thought it might be a nice way to kick off the year. At the very least I plan to wear my favorite light blue button-up and gray pants.

    We do yearbook pictures, so I would love to include a jacket. But I'll wait and see what Tuesday's forecast is.

    Our less-than-attractive staff polo (we are all to wear them the first day) with white crop pants (2 sizes smaller than I was wearing in the spring!). I may get some new shoes to compensate for the shirt :whistle:.

    We already had our fist day :) It was yesterday.

    I wore a black and white skirt, white blouse, and black 3/4 length sleeve sweater with wedge, black sandals.

    I wore khakis, a polo, and tennis shoes. I don't really ever dress up. In my new position, I need to dress more "comfortable" than ever.

    Baby blue white pinstriped dress shirt, black slacks, and my favorite tie. Planning on getting a haircut on Monday too.

    I almost started a thread on this topic! :) On my first day of work, the kids hadn't started yet, so I wore a nice, yet casual top & summer pants since the first week back was in the 90s.

    On the first day the kids started, I wore a nice blouse & skirt.

    I think I may head to Payless tomorrow too, cza. You picked my favourites. The wedges may be a little high for the first day I'll have (because I don't have a homeroom first thing, I help the late arrivals and new registrations find their classrooms and help with the kindergarten "criers").

    You are a woman after my own heart!! I love the three that you chose AND the ones that you linked...and the advice about buying both pairs. YEP! I would advise the same!



    I'll be wearing:
    something like this top

    though after looking through them, I might go get this top:
    http://www.maurices.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13005851

    to go with this skirt:
    http://www.maurices.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12544584

    Love the shoes you posted, cza, but know I'd be filling out an accident report because I would injure myself trying to walk in them :lol:.

    Last week, I bought myself a pair of those new Skechers GoWalk shoes. They are incredibly lightweight & seemingly comfortable when I tried them on. I hope they stay feeling the same after a long day!

    I am so jealous that you can teach in shoes like that! I wouldn't make it past 1st period! I'm petite, but I still have to wear flat shoes on 90% of the days.

    I'll wear my favorite skirt: super comfy Ralph Lauren cotton in a shades of navy and royal blue and white ikat print. I'll just wear a vee neck white tee with it, and my usual Birks. I wish I could wear nice shoes, but I can't, not if I want to not be in excruciating pain after 20 minutes. Ah well. A great pedicure helps.

    I think I'll do Chanel Peridot nail polish--it's a neat green to gold color changing duochrome. It looks nice with navy.

    I'll have more to choose from if I lose another ten pounds. The problem with my "buy only a select few choice items" philosophy is that I'm stuck when I both gain weight and am poor. I'm so picky when it comes to drape, cut, and how a fabric feels.

    http://www.landsend.com/pp/womens-s...men-_-plus-size-_-dresses-skirts&origin=index This dress in blue. Going to try to find a yellow cami and then I will be in school colors. Probably white or brown sandals and maybe a belt. I have to wear sandals because I broke my little toe. I can't wear closed toe shoes until it heals.

    We usually are told to wear jeans and a school shirt on the first day but I hate that - I like to look somewhat professional on the first day, even though it's usually super hot in my school. So I got the blue dress so I could still show some school spirit. Of course we never got that memo this year...

    I wore a denim pencil skirt with a blue & white blouse and blue & pewter flats that nearly killed my feet. Tomorrow ends my third week with kids!

    I will probably be wearing a blue shirt, black pants, and a tie. Students don't start until next Wednesday, so that is subject to change!

    I don't do dresses, but I really like that dress in the red dot! The others, too, but especially red. :)

    I like the red dot one too, but all they had was the black and white one and the green/black one.

    I'm really jealous of all of you ladies who can wear cute, fairly high heels to work! Due to a serious ankle injury a few yrs back, I'm afraid to go over maybe 2 or 3 inches, but even then, they have to be a brand known for comfortability, plus even with that, I might have to change shoes at some point in the day. I really HATE the narrow choices of shoes I'm stuck having to wear...& my BF picking up all the sexy high heel shoes when we're at the mall, that he wishes he could see me in doesn't help the situation! :(

    I'm deciding between two dresses I bought midsummer...one is a blue Ikat pattern with a beaded pattern at neckline. The other is a Bargello flame stitch pattern knit in coral colors.
