reader question: kindergarten kool

can you please help me put together some inexpensive work outfits? i'd really like a pair of skinny black pants that aren't too tight on the calf area and tops/sweaters that would work with them. oh, and i don't want to spend a million dollars or look too "teachery". thanks anniekins!

my sister, the best kindergarten teacher in the whole world, recently asked me for shopping help for the winter season. keeping in mind that she spends half of her day crawling around on the floor with her kids, i put together these outfits for her. i tried not to make them too "teachery" (which i assume means no holiday sweaters) and created each outfit around the same skinny pants from old navy. hope she likes!

  • pintucked and crotched top, forever21, $17.80

Great!!! Thanks Annie! I just bought the Old Navy pants today so now I need to get some of the other things. You're a great personal shopper. That's what you should start doing for a career. You know all those Austin housewives would love a personal shopper!
