Hi! Thanks for popping by.
My name is Lieske and I am a Dutch 40+ teacher of foreign languages in Switzerland. I am small and have got even smaller feet, so you can imagine how challenging it can be to find ‘fashion that fits’. To be honest with you, I want my clothes to have some more qualities than just ‘fitting well’. Let me share my personal 5 fashion rules with you.
My outfits must be:
- Comfortable to start with. This certainly applies for my shoes when teaching, but also for my clothes. I want to be able to move around easily the whole day through.
- Classy enough to distinguish me from my pupils. Since I am petite, I’d like to be recognized as a teacher by my choice of clothes. It also adds some extra authority if you choose your outfits wisely.
- Classy yet casual. Although I love classy, I am also very much aware that I am a teacher, so that means a different style than if I would be working in a bank or for a law firm.
- Easy to wear on a bicycle. Being Dutch I cycle to work of course.
- Petite friendly. I just love it when an outfit makes me look taller.
Trousers: Tally-Weijl, Top: H&M, Cardigan: Jacqueline de Yong, Shoes: Blox (all previous seasons)
I am very happy to show you on a regular basis how well this mix of personal requirements works for me. It is often about small changes: they can create huge effects. And you know what; this mix works perfectly both inside and outside the classroom, so enjoy the fashion part of my blog. I am sure you will.
