Awesome autumn outfit for teachers and travellers

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

– Marilyn Monroe

As a teacher and traveller your outfits need to be comfortable in the first place. That said, you can be stylish as well. With the sneakers trend still going strong, finding stylish and comfortable footwear is a piece of cake.

The colour scheme for the autumn/winter collections for 2019/2020 knows many shades of red, which made me dug out this old skirt and top from a box in my cellar. Adding an equally old jeans jacket and scarf makes sure I can easily handle differences in temperature when teaching or travelling.

Outfit details

The length of the skirt is practical for travelling, since it is long enough to cover the back of my legs when sitting, something I highly appreciate when using public transport (see also this blogpost about my maxi dress). The skirt is pretty loose in the waist, which is an additional bonus when travelling.

My favourite Vans have finally been replaced by another pair, brand (Ecco) and colour.

As a teacher my voice is my asset, so I consider taking care of it as part of my job. For me, scarfs are much more than an accessoire; I often wear them in the colder months to protect my voice.

The jeans bag (an old item again) fits the colour scheme and casual style perfectly.

I am very happy with this outfit. It is casual chic & colourful and on top of all that mainly old items with that one exception: a long overdue replacement of my old Vans.

What does your awesome autumn outfit look like?

  1. I always love denim jackets on dresses of skirts! Is the top the same color as the skirt? Looks like a dress! I love the color on you and the ruffles are a lovely playfull touch! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thanks Nancy. The top is almost the same colour. Did you see it is a golden oldie from your old company? Love, Lieske
