When I was a senior in college all the girls in my program went to a teacher's convention and we made a secret pact. A pact never to fall victim to some unfortunate teacher's fashion trends. I have kept that pact. Who says teachers can't wear cute clothes?!!!
10.) Scarves. I can't wear these too often here, but I think they make a very nice addition to almost any winter outfit. This scarf is from the Gap.
9.)Leggings. Okay, I know people hate this, but I like them. They're comfortable and they make getting out of the car in a slightly short skirt much easier (if you're not the type to give the world a show). These leggings can be found at Nordstrom's. Look at Nordstrom's Rack, though, and save your money. (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3027713/0~2378467~2378483~2377033?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=2377033&P=1)
8.) Bermuda Shorts. Yes, it is more of a summer trend, but I just thank God that short shorts are not the only choice anymore. They are really not flattering on anyone. These shorts are at Dillards.

7.) Mineral Powder. This makeup really is much better for skin and it looks better too.
6.) Immitation Ugs. This trend is short-lived here in the desert, but these boots are really really comfortable. These boots are from DSW. (http://www.dsw.com/dsw_shoes/catalog/product.jsp?index=88&sort=&category=dsw12cat520006&prodId=180885&brand=)
5.) Cardigans. I have to buy cardigans made out of t-shirt material and with short sleeves if possible because it is hot here, but I love these because it makes an outfit you would wear around town much more professional for work. This cardigan is from Target.

4.) Skinny Jeans. I love skinny jeans and I wear them almost every day. These are from Forever21! (http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=btms_jeans_skinny&product_id=2069892081&page=1&trend=&fit=)
3.) Flat Irons for Hair. For those of us with really really thick hair, this fashion trend is amazing. I hate how it takes so much time, but I love the look.
2.) Chunky Jewelry! I love wearing a big necklace and earrings. I don't have many big bracelets, but I would if I had discretionary income! This bracelet is from New York and Co.

1.) Big Bags! I love carrying a big purse that can fit my laptop--well my school district's laptop--and my books! This bag is from Target.
