We are wrapping up the end of the school year at school with a few weeks left. For those of you in education that means packing up your classroom, figuring out summer work, lots of paperwork, and so. many. meetings. Many times students being evaluated for special education services are evaluated at the end of the school year. And then there are meetings to determine if students who already receive special education need an updated Individualized Education Plan or require services over the summer. So I have lots of meetings. If you've followed my blog for a while, you may remember that parts of my school do not have AC. My room and the conference room are two such areas. So at the beginning and end of each school year I always keep an eye out for professional clothing that can help me stay cool. And since I am part-time, if I can wear it outside of work, that is a plus, too! These striped paper bag pants immediately caught my eye (as did the $17 price tag). They run slightly small (I am wearing a medium) as typical from SheIn. They are also slightly see-through (about as much as white jeans) so if you wear skin-toned undergarments you should be fine. I paired the pants with this adorable eyelet flutter sleeve top (only $12) so my outfit is under $30! I could easily see wearing this to work, to church, or for a date night. I sized up to a medium with this top too for a roomier fit. I am excited to wear these items more this summer!

  10. Love those pants on you! I wasn't sure if I could wear the paper bag style since I'm short in the middle and kinda thick there but those have caught my eye. I really like the vertical stripes too. That eyelet top is going to be great for summer and the flutter sleeves are such a pretty detail! I know you live in a much cooler climate but it's hard for me to imagine being anywhere without a/c!

  12. Oh my, I am loving this look. Those pants are perfect. Are they as comfy as the look. I am picturing a fun tee and converse for a casual look, heels and blazer for evenings, so versatile

  13. This top is so pretty! I've been seeing lots of eyelet pieces popping up on stores lately - I have a feeling it's going to be a big trend this summer.

  20. This is so cute! The striped paper bag pants look so great with your pink pumps and eyelet top. I cannot even imagine working in an office without air, even for a little while. I guess it probably doesn't get quite as hot and humid there as it does in the south, though?

  21. Boy, I don't know how you stand a room in the spring without AC! I had one school I worked where I was in a trailer and the air broke down- this was in SC. It was tough!
    Your outfit is lovely! I really do love the style of paper bag pants, and this eyelet top is adorable on you. Sweet for Spring!

  31. This is one of my favorite looks on you, Laura! Just love these pants. I saw something similar at the outlets yesterday, but they didn't have my size. SheIn really has been having some cute things lately!
