    Thank you for all of the suggestions. The one I ordered is light pink so I think I'm going to pair it with my brown pencil skirt and heels. Then, I'll top it off with either a long tan cardigan or my sleek white blazer.

    Now, I'm excited so thanks for the ideas!

    I think that this shirt is really fun and it will help break the ice for the new school year. Good luck!

    I like the idea of the blazer because then if a parent should show up (which, if your luck is like mine, will absolutely happen) you can button up the blazer and cover the part of the shirt that parents might not understand the humor to.

    On a teacher-only day, that would be perfectly appropriate with jeans in my building. We have a sort of strict dress code (at least according to everything I read here, lol! no jeans, no sneakers, no bare shoulders, no flipflops....) during the school year, but when kids and parents aren't in the building, all bets are off, and you can pretty much wear whatever the heck you want (and that goes for the principal, too).

    I'm just adding my opinion—not attempting to initiate yet another debate about dress. :)

    I think a blazer is completely unnecessary.

    In my school a blazer would be completely unnecessary. It is well known that staff days are "dress down" days for everyone including our principal. We all come in jeans/shorts and t-shirts/sweatshirts depending on the weather. I guess it comes down to if that is appropriate dress at your school for staff days. If the principal wears a t-shirt for the first staff day no matter how appropriate or funny it has to be okay for others to dress that way for any future staff days.

    Of course we are a bit different as we have 14 staff days a year (one a month on top of beginning and end of year days).

    A blazer would be unnecessary in my school as well. As a principal new to the school, however, Tiffany may wish to have a blazer to throw on to greet any parents who may "just drop in".

    I love Cafe Press!

    I'd wear it on a staff day. (Well, actually *I* couldn't wear it since we aren't allowed to wear t-shirts, but if it's not a problem, wear it.)

    Ima, so the new dress code prevents you from wearing a t-shirt even on a non-student day? :(

    I don't know about Ima's, but our dress code does. We can't ever wear jeans, and can only wear school T-shirts on specific spirit days.

    As long as it's a contract day, it applies. :(

    I agree probably don't need the blazer but it would come in handy if a parent or two shows up.
