What are your favorite retailers for workwear? Pink Blush Maternity, Old Navy, H&M
What is your business dress code? I maintain a Business Casual dress code while also dressing comfortably for a job where I am moving and on my feet all day!
How does your job influence your work wardrobe? I’ve been a first-grade teacher for 9 years and will be a first-time mom this spring! Dressing comfortably and professionally for the classroom with a growing bump has made me get creative with my wardrobe. For maternity clothes, I look for pieces that I can easily mix and match and dress up for work or more style more casually for the weekend.
What’s your favorite “go-to” look when you want to look and feel your best? My favorite go-to workwear outfit is a good pair of black twill pants (like the ones I’m wearing), flats or booties with a low heel, and a smart blouse or sweater.
