    I have a love/hate relationship with Target because I dish out so much $$$ each time I shop! :lol:

    I just started subbing after being a stay at home mom for the past six years and recently had to figure out how to dress on a budget. I have stumbled upon a very affordable go-to outfit; ponte knit pants (thick and substantial so they don't look like regular leggings) with a looser, slightly longer top and possibly a jacket (denim) or open type cardi. I wear this with basic flats (dexflex from payless). I found my pants at Costco for $15 a pair and stocked up. Another suggestion I have is to try the Merona brand ankle pants at Target. I'm 5'4" myself and those ankle pants look really cute with flats as well. Target also has a nice selection of blouses, though it seems they sell out of the smaller sizes pretty quickly.

    All about the thrift store for me. I am pretty sure my entire dress clothes/school clothes come from either gifts or the thrift store. Of from Primark in England.

    ICAM! It is the ultimate sale, but please shop carefully and with a good eye for value.

    I read the post about the heavier leggings and laughed. Unless the top comes well down onto the thigh, you would earn a dress code violation in any school I have worked in. The exact wording is the equivalent of an 8 inch inseam. Who knew NJ would be so fashion oblivious! :blush:

    Well, the pants I'm referring to have both front and rear pockets but are made of a ponte knit, which is heavier than your typical cotton leggings. Don't know what inseam has to do with it, do you mean the rise? Anyway, I always make sure my butt is covered by my blouse since the pants are tight.

    I'm not even sure what the actual dress code is where I sub but I am dressed better than the majority of the teachers and I am in no way immodest.

    How do schools with no leggings view skinny jeans or jeggings. Probably by the pocket rule I would guess.

    No, it is the fabric. Jeggings are leggings are seen as exactly the same and fall under the same restrictions. But you are right about the pockets - they have to have the extra pocket fabric that you can pull out, not just a piece of the legging material sewn on to be called real jeans. The inseam restriction pretty much indicates your top would need to go past your tush by the 6-8 inches. I didn't say you were immodest, I was only stating what the dress code says. And yes, as a woman, I am tired of having to try to enforce it! It isn't about the weight of the fabric - it is about the sprayed on tightness of the jeggings and leggings that seem to inspire dress code writers.
