What To Wear To Volunteer

So many of us mamas love to go up to our child’s classroom to help the teacher out…  Whether that be cutting paper in the stock room, hot gluing art work on the walls, or reading to the children!  This is usually a time you want to be functional and comfortable.  Again, spend a few extra minutes and put on some “real” but casual clothes like a cute white tee shirt and your favorite jeans.  Add in a few of your favorite accessories, such as a fun necklace or some cute sneakers.  Don’t forget a jacket – for some reason, it always seems to be chilly up at school.

What To Wear For PTO Meetings

There is never a shortage of meetings up at school if you are involved with your PTO or Parent Association.  Some of these meetings take place during the day, while others are at night.  There are several good options for meetings like these…  Such as a casual dress and sandals or booties, a button-up shirt and a nice pair of shorts, or a fun top and skirt.  But you can never go wrong with a blazer and jeans.  To make this look even a bit more chill, you can always do distressed denim.  You guys know by now that a blazer and distressed jeans is one of our most favorite looks for fall!  Add some simple hoop earrings and a pair of mules to complete the concept.
